Two months ago, Kharon’s Crypt fulfilled its Kickstarter financing target and has now met its stretch goal to get a Nintendo Switch port. While there’s official filing to be performed, programmers Andromeda Project has verified that Nintendo of Europe has approved the project for release on Nintendo Switch.
1 major sidenote mentioned is the Nintendo Switch version is going to need to be remade quite much from scratch because “Game Maker may’t export to Switch. ” While unquestionably an obstacle that will make the Switch variant launching afterwards, Andromeda Project doesn’t seem too concerned about the holdup.
It’s really much inspired by games such as top-down Zelda games from the Gameboy Color not just in gameplay however in graphics as well. But the premise of Kharon’s Crypt is where the game is different. It’s a non-linear dungeon crawler starring a spirit named Kharon. It’s his obligation to escape out of the crypt he’s buried inside. Kharon begins as a flying ghost, but could soon have the bodies of the enemies to benefit from the skills.
So instead of simply copying a Zelda name, Kharon’s Crypt enables you to perform as the many enemies that you’ll encounter during the game. Perhaps we’ll even get to drive around Kharon’s version of a Chu Chu.
Kharon’s Crypt is supposed to release in October 2018, but the Nintendo Switch port has yet to get an official release window.
