Prime Matter - a new publishing label from Koch Media - has announced that it will publish cosmic horror action RPG Dolmen for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC (Steam) in 2022. The game will see both a digital and physical release.

Dolmen is developed by Brazilian team Massive Work Studio, which originally launched a Kickstarter campaign for Dolmen in 2018, raising more than $20,000 for the project. The game is described as a Sci-Fi Lovecraftian Cosmic Horror action RPG, where the player needs to overcome vicious bosses and survive in hostile environments, as the unique story reveals secrets of a mysterious crystal called Dolmen.

A trailer, description, and screenshot set can be found below via Prime Matter. The official website is here.

Cosmic Horror and Sci-Fi are two ways to talk about Dolmen. It is a third person action game with RPG elements but with a lovecraftian plot that calls players to find what’s behind the darkest secret of the universe!

A forgotten planet called Revion Prime will be the place where the action takes part. And it won’t be easy: Adaptation and exploration will be your main weapons as you craft new items and equipments from your enemies’ carcasses! Every step can be your last one!

Use your experience points to improve yourself and face what no human has ever faced. After all, quoting David Hume: “The life of man is of no greater importance to the universe than that of an oyster.” Maybe he was right… Or not.

Strategic and Dynamic Combat

What’s left to someone put in such a situation? Well, if you’ll have to face the unpredictable, you’ll have to improvise!

  • Intense Melee Combat: Experience rich combat with various types of melee weapons and moves! Attack, block and dodge, as you try to escape from the enemies as well as damage them.
  • Smart Ranged Combat: Use ranged weapon's elemental shots to cause different debuffs on enemies! All creatures answer specifically to each combination, making the battles always innovative and demanding, so you have to be always attentive!
  • Energy Management: To activate your ranged weapons, some energy must be spent. But this isn’t the only use of Energy. By activating “Energy Mode”, your melee weapon will be empowered too! Also, you can use a portion of Energy to recover a small portion of your HP quickly. But beware, energy does not regenerate by itself, so use it carefully!
  • Challenging Enemies: Surviving is the last thing the cosmos wants you to do... Along your way, many creatures will try to end your journey to continue their own!
  • Gruesome Bosses: The human race deserves to subsist? Many alpha predators will say no!

Exploration

All environment will provide a feeling of being apart from Earth, which means that a whole new kind of views are waiting for you.

Plot
