game release date for PC:
Courier of the Crypts is a two-dimensional action adventure made in an old-school style, in which we play the title courier, and our task is to deliver an important letter to the guard of a dark and dangerous crypt. The game was developed by one person Slovenian independent studio Emeberheart Games.
The game's protagonist is about to start working for Pony Delivery Service, but his first task is not as easy as he would expect. It has to deliver the parcel addressed to the guardian of the crypt, inhabited somewhere in the depths of large, three-level dungeons. Determined to complete the task, he plunges deep into the mysterious catacombs to see that this place is full of various traps and hidden passages, and that its main inhabitants are lost souls and menacing cults. Our protagonist's only ally is a magic torch, which allows you to find your way and solve the puzzles waiting for him, as well as providing basic protection against danger.
The game is divided into three stages, corresponding to the three levels of the crypt and different types of puzzles and opponents. During the exploration we will come across a number of traps and hidden passages, as well as puzzles in which our magic torch, revealing secrets invisible to the naked eye, will be an invaluable help in solving them. Equally important is its role in deterring enemies. Therefore, we must not allow the torch to go out at any price, because without its help we will plunge into total darkness and will not be able to finish the game. During the game you will also find coins and treasures that will allow you to buy various bonuses (more health, slower burning of torches) and scrolls full of tips useful in solving puzzles and finding hidden chambers.
In Courier of the Crypts we observe the development of action in a classic top-down perspective, and hand-drawn graphics were made in a characteristic pixel-art style, reminiscent of rogue-like games from the late 80s of the 20th century. The party is accompanied by a romantic ambient soundtrack, fitting into the atmosphere of the game.
