About This Game

The stories about Leshy, Domovoy and Rusalka have always seemed like legends, but in the world of Folk Hero fairy tales have come to life. More and more mysterious events are happening all around: animals disappear in the forests, villagers see mythical creatures, and a mysterious Island has appeared on the horizon…

Become a brave hero, and go to the island of Buyan to discover the cause of the mysterious occurrences!

Friendly fire. Enemies can attack each other! Force them to fight among themselves to avoid wasting precious health points.

Permanent death. One chance to reach the end. If the Hero dies on the island, he will remain there forever. On the Island you can earn points that will not expire after death, but will be used to upgrade new Heroes and abilities.

Pixel art. Beautiful retro-graphics and funny character animations will impress the fans of this style.

Chudo-Yudo Games development team and publisher Targem Games were inspired by such “roguelikes” as Hades, Curse of the Dead Gods, Binding of Isaac, Dead Cells, and Risk of Rain. We took the best, added our own ideas and got a game that will appeal to beginners and experienced players of the Rogue-lite genre alike.
