Flynn: Son of Crimson Release Date


PC PS4 XONE Switch

Flynn: Son of Crimson is an action platform game enriched with elements of metroidvania, developed by independent studio Thunderhorse. The game appeared on PC, and its creation was possible thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.


Flynn: Son of Crimson takes us to the fantasy land of Rosantica. Its inhabitants enjoyed a peaceful life as long as there was a barrier separating it from the dark dimension called The Scourge. The dam is now bursting and Rosantica is gradually succumbing to the hellish forces ruled by the evil Lord Zealock. During the game we play as Flynn, an orphan gifted with magical abilities. The protagonist is burdened with the difficult task of stopping The Scourge's expansion before it is too late.


In Flynn: Son of Crimson we observe the action from the side. Exploration is the main element of the game. In the course of the struggle, we visit five different areas in Rosantica: the snowy Mistral Peak, the swampy Hollow Islands, the forests of Rustwood, magical Shivering Spire, and the fortress of Sanctia, the latter being Flynn's base of operations. In addition, the protagonist can open portals leading to The Scourge, where he not only faces various dangers but also helps the kidnapped inhabitants of Rosantica. It is worth noting that hero is not alone in his quest - if necessary, he can summon Dex, a loyal mythical beast. In addition, the whole world is not immediately open to us, because obtaining access to selected locations often requires the use of a specific skill or the acquisition of a specific item.

Another important element of the game are the dynamic battles with the opponents, including bosses. For the needs of the game, the devs have prepared an extensive combat system - we fight in real-time, and during the duels we use melee weapons (Crimson Blade, Crimson Axe, and Crimson Claws) and ranged weapons (Super Awesome Crimson Bow), between which we can switch freely. As the adventure progresses, the hero develops his combat skills, learning new techniques by paying with valuables found along the way.
