Kings of Lorn: The Fall of Ebris is characterized by dark fantasy style and intertwines with elements of action, adventure and horror. Josiah Jones is responsible for the original concept, and Micah Leigh Jones, who together with two brothers founded TeamKill Media LLC in 2016, is responsible for the final shape. The title was originally released only on PC, but with time also debuted on consoles.
The story of Kings of Lorn: The Fall of Ebris takes place in the dark world of Lera, destroyed by a deadly disease. The main character is King Farren, who once ruled over Ena: The Kingdom Above All Kingdoms. Deceived by his regent Gulbrand's stories about the extraordinary resources hidden in the mysterious Spires, the ruler left the country to fight the epidemic. To this end, he opened all the spires again in the six remaining kingdoms, with or without the consent of the rulers of that kingdom. When the last one was opened, the world began to disintegrate, the heavens darkened and the oceans dried up. Worried about his actions, the king decided to return to the country.
On the spot it turned out that the regent took over the power in Ena and proclaimed himself king. Betrayed by his own Order, Farren tries to remove the usurper from power and thus save Ena's society from collapse. The plot interweaves the themes of immortality and travel between dimensions and abounds in brutal, macabre scenes.
The whole game is observed from the first person perspective. The main axis of the game is exploring the location and fighting enemies with the use of several weapons. We have a dagger, bow, sword and axe at our disposal, and each weapon is more or less effective against a certain type of enemy. During clashes it is worth to use various tactics, because some opponents may be deaf (and thus, we do not have to worry about noise) or blind (we can face them and we will not be detected). The game is enriched by fights with powerful bosses, for defeating which we receive high quality equipment.
We make registrations only in specific points (in the form of bodies stamped on a pile). They are not the only objects worth looking for - from time to time we may come across chapels that permanently improve our life belt. Enemies defeated along the way throw away useful items needed to open the next passage, upgrade our equipment or complement our health. The latter are important as there is no mechanic of automatic regeneration of life in the game. We collect items by passing over them, which accelerates the pace of the game. Our resources are very limited, so if you decide to fight mainly with a crossbow or bow, you have to be careful not to waste your missiles.
Kings of Lorn: The Fall of Ebris is based on the Unreal Engine, which has allowed to create good quality graphics with a relatively small budget of the studio. The game's design is very dark, both in terms of locations, opponents and our equipment, and the creators admit to being inspired by the Doom series.
