Dark Fantasy Dungeon Crawler Is Inspired By H.P. Lovecraft



After releasing one Wizardry game for PSP, Starfish decided to make their own Wizardry inspired series called Elminage for Japan. The next game in the series, Elminage Gothic: Ritual of Darkness and Ulm Zakir, has a dark fantasy art style and monsters from H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos.


Artwork below shows Shaggai, Othuum and Nug. Returning monsters include a Dragon Knight.. that’s literally a dragon knight and a turtle with a giant root.

Just like Wizardry, Elminage Gothic has a handful of races to choose from. You can select your character’s gender, age, alignment, class (there are 16 different jobs), and an "investment" where you exchange gold for immediate experience points.

Don’t like the dark fantasy art style? You can upload icons and portrait art to further customize your characters. Elminage Gothic also has a "sound load" feature where you can add custom music to the game.

And if you want to get really old school Elminage Gothic has an optional wireframe map mode.



Elminage Gothic: Ritual of Darkness and Ulm Zakir comes out for PSP on May 24.
