Today we’re excited to formally announce DOLMEN “a terrifying new Action-RPG” from independent Brazilian developer Massive Work Studio, which is making its North American debut at GDC 2018!
DOLMEN combines futuristic Sci-Fi and Lovecraftian Cosmic Horror, set in the “SoulsBorne” RPG genre mold. You play as a lone astronaut left stranded on a forgotten planet known as Revion Prime. This world is surrounded by the billions of victims to a great war – their corpses float in orbit as a reminder and warning to all those who are unlucky enough to enter its galaxy. To survive on this hostile planet, you’ll have to adapt by mastering the game’s layered combat system, scavenge for resource and craft new items that improve your space suits’ functionality. Revion Prime is unforgiving; you’ll learn that the hard way.
DOLMEN’s Key Features:
Explore a Devastated, Darkly Beautiful Planet: Revion Prime is an alien world, with environments inspired by the work of macabre artists like H.R. Giger and H.P. Lovecraft, that challenges you to unearth its dark history by connecting fragments of the past.
Engage in Fast-Paced Dynamic Combat: Combat is intense and heavily based on timing, mixing melee-based attacks, Over-the-Shoulder (OTS) perspective long-range shooting and the use of defensive maneuvers such as dodging and blocking.
Adapt or Perish; Craft to Survive: Mankind, so we believe, has become a prevalent species due to its ability to endure and adapt to inhospitable environments. Build up your skills and scavenge what little resources are available to create items and customize your equipment. You’re going to need anything you can find to live to see another day.
