Black Tower Basement and Nordcurrent Labs announce Pixel-Art Narrative RPG Greedventory

Ukraine-based developer Black Tower Basement and publisher Nordcurrent Labs announced Greedventory at the Guerilla Collective 3 event for PC (Steam, GOG). The title is a point and slash adventure that features "soul-like elements" and RPG systems.

Players are tasked with retrieving several magical artifacts that the Igneous Sigil Brotherhood has taken control of. The upcoming 2D pixel art game has players travel the screen from left to right and places a heavy emphasis on parrying incoming enemy attacks with a cursor at the right time. People can mitigate the damage they would have received on a clean hit; some attacks can be reflected back onto the enemy as well.

Experience points and loot are rewarded as players progress deeper into Greedventory. Its inventory screen resembles other action RPGs, such as Diablo. Environmental obstacles, such as saw blades on the ground, can also damage players too. 

Check out the announcement trailer for Greedventory below, along with further information and its first screenshots.

Greedventory is a gorgeous pixel-art narrative RPG experience, where the only thing standing between you and an embarrassingly swift death is your mouse. Strike, parry, and cast powerful spells on your enemies, loot increasingly magnificent treasures and equipment, get lost in a beautifully brutal world, take down a centuries old not-so-secret society, and become the hero you REALLY don’t want to be!

In a world where magical artifacts are common, an ancient brotherhood rules and strives to collect and hoard every facet of ancient magic. The main rule of survival here is to always be aware of your surroundings and keep your reflexes in tip-top shape, as the realm runs on GREED, and no mortal being can resist the urge to steal, lie, and throw you to the wolves if it means THEY get something for YOUR trouble.

Put your reflexes to the test in a reactive combat system, where every move is made with your cursor, every precious second counts, and quick reaction is the key to not getting blown up or cut into pieces!

Explore every inch of a masterfully and passionately crafted pixel-art world chock full of magic, secrets, GREED, and very sassy humor! Collect practical, yet absolutely DASHING armor, deadly weapons, and if that isn’t enough, imbue them with ancient magic to bestow special abilities, mix and match magical powers to maximize their potential!

Live (or die) through a brutal story of deception and fraud, where even the friendliest looking fella is looking to rob you, be smart, and learn to use their weapons against them!
