About

This game will crush you.

Face merciless gameplay to explore a cursed castle, discover the dark tales of its inhabitants, and kill the gods of a decaying world. Eternal Return combines retro graphics and old-school mechanics with modern nonlinear level design and storytelling.

Survive to Explore

Slow pacing combined with tight yet unconvential controls builds stress, tension, and horror during gameplay, rather than taking a hack & slash approach. Players build their health, stamina, and arsenal up from nothing - and earn points by killing enemies to use special weapons to fight their way to the next shortcut.

Discover a Story

Speak to NPCs, find written messages, muse over paintings, and explore story-filled architecture to learn or infer the forgotten tales of the crumbling castle and its fading inhabitants - including yourself.

Features:
  • Starting with 1 health and 1 stamina to be built up by exploring for upgrades
  • Stamina management-combat
  • Unique controls for toe-to-toe combat
  • No Air controls! (How do they do that, anyway?)
  • Realistically-paced attacks for strategy rather than spamming
  • 3 primary and 3 secondary weapons
  • Gathering points to use secondary weapons
  • Returning to your place of death to recover points
  • Looping level design around only one central checkpoint with unlockable in-universe fast travel for great immersion
  • Locked doors and optional secret areas
  • Hardcore areas with invisible enemies and other crazy challenges
  • Secret healing checkpoints to help further your exploration
  • 9 NPCs with voice acting and subtitles
  • 20 Levels
  • 13 Bosses
  • 50+ unique enemy types
  • Discover phonographs to find the game's soundtrack
  • 64 colors!
  • Philosophy!
  • So many jars and barrels that need smashing.
