Mandragora is a mix between 2.5D side-scrolling metroidvania levels with skill-driven soulslike type of combat that promises to punish and reward the player in equal measures. From the leering Caretaker to the Vampires of Braer Island, the player has to face ruthless foes and uniquely horrifying bosses.
Journey through a world in decline, slowly falling prey to the damaging effects of Entropy. Fight vicious creatures, challenge nightmarish bosses, meet new allies, enemies, and every shade in-between, and make harsh moral choices. There are many paths worth taking. Choose yours.
The objective of the player is then to take back the world from the ripping hands of the monsters.
Acquire the legendary Witch Lantern and enter the otherworldly plane of Entropy through tears in the fabric of reality. Make devastating choices in a sinister and immersive story by Brian Mitsoda, writer of Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines.
There will be choices in terms of unique classes, from Vanguard to Heretic, you will be able to customize skills and powers through a character development system. Honestly, this is all music to my ears and just by the sound of it, I’m very invested in this Mandragora. Adding to this mix, it will be possible to unlock new upgrades, and craft powerful weapons, armor, and even trickets via Artisans that can join your adventure.
There are still a couple of days left to back this project on Kickstarter. So if you want to support this project or just keep track of how things are going, don’t forget to follow in its footsteps!
