Depths of Fear :: Knossos is a Greek-themed 1st person adventure game with stealth, action and edge-of-your-seat elements within rogue-like procedurally generated levels. You will run. You will hide. You will fight. You will die.

The fate of Athens is in your hands as you step into the role of legendary Greek hero Theseus. Offering yourself for tribute unto the corrupt King Minos, you embark upon a perilous quest deep beneath the city of Knossos to slay the twisted mythical beast - The Minotaur. But, before you can complete this hero's journey you must steadfast the trials of ever-changing creature-filled labyrinths. Collect gold to deal with Daedalus, building up your armory whilst seeking out the mythological medallions that unlock a master sword, the only weapon known that can pierce the Minotaur's cursed flesh. May the gods of Greece be with you, son of Poseidon!

  • An ever changing Labyrinth: Each stage in Depths of Fear is crafted to never be the same twice creating a constant state of tension of the unknown.
  • Face the Beasts of Ancient Greece: Survive encounters against 8 immortal legendary creatures: Saytr, Cerberus, Centaur, Manticore, Griffin, Medusa, Hydra and the horror of the Minotaur.
  • Diverse Gameplay: To survive one must learn when to sneak through the shadows, when to run and when to engage in combat as they attempt to survive each rung down into in the darkness.
  • Knowledge is Power: Appease the gods by finding their books and earning their favor for special powers such as lightening from Zeus, Speed from Hermes, Earth shaking might from Poseidon or the illuminating light of Apollo.
  • Build an Arsenal: Loot the labyrinths for gold to purchase 8 trusty weapons that range from Blades and Clubs to the Trident and Crossbow. Use these weapons to secure the 8 creature medallions that unlock the only weapon known that can slay the legendary beast Minotaur.
  • Challenge the Unknown: When the adventure ends, the game has just begun. Beneath the skull a never-ending challenge awaits in the entrance of the unknown that provides countless replay value. How far down can you make it?
  • Unique & Adaptive soundtrack: Featuring a tension-based music system, the soundtrack (recorded with mind-altering 70’s era synthesizers) adapts to your situation.

Depths of Fear :: Knossos reviews and comments

A very entertaining game from my perspective, has very good enemies and sometimes are a headache: V, the music is great, since the first time gave me a good scare, bugs?, as the time that played eh found very few but are not very annoying. The graphics are good although not very well optimized because I have 1 GB of video and I have to run in the middle to make me stable but hey that's the least.

Really impressive this game despite being very indie, it seems that a person has done it alone. It'S really a first-person roguelike to explore dungeons with random objects and scenarios that are generated in each game. The Music is great and the ambience is sublime, it really looks like those old films of Perseus and the Medusa or Jason and the Argonauts. It Has stealth components like the thief and the truth is that it is quite scary in many moments. If the programmer corrected some object collision errors and improved some animations would be a perfect game, it is still a grandisimo game with many possibilities. I highly recommend it, if you like the Roguelike, the games of Mazmorreo, the terror or the stealth.

For Fans of Greek Mythology, for everyone else it could quickly get boring. STORY out of scoring Hab did not play through the Game, but so much I can say, one plays a young Man who must compete one after the other against the different Beings of Greek Mythology in order to save his great Love. From the Satyr to The Minotaur. LEVELDESIGN except Rating You have to keep finding a Key and opening the next Door with this, this runs through the whole Game ... AI out of Standings Attacks and dies. Fits. GRAFIK except rating Dark kept, slight crisp. SOUND out of Scoring repeats again and again Conclusion: For Fans of Mythology okay. Habs canceled because it got too boring for me. If you want to buy it, you should wait for a Sale.

Tolerable. And even interesting. And at the beginning so generally scary. Pass the test for the test, collecting the levels of the book (for which you can get active skills at once) and gold (for him you can buy weapons). At the same time in the initial pairs is very important not to get a bestiaria guarding anything. You'll Need 20 minutes to understand the local mechanics. Then you will simply on a cipher to run on subways collecting keys, and then by them opening doors to the next level. There is a spectacular generator of the dungeon, a la Rogalik from the first person, only simplified. In Short, atmospheric: incomprehensible melodies of 8-bit broken tools, a cloud of different dibiloids that want to crush you, yellow/red eyes from the darkness snark at the player and the obligatory mastitis in the head of "СYKO @, ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥, KUDDA e} I {ATT????" 6 out of 10 for an indie bagel without a engraver from 1-person.
