Treasure hunters

Many of you during the game could stumble on the bodies of three people with different objects. But who are they? How did they end up there? And how did they perish? It does not reveal itself in the game. Today we decided to open for you this blind spot.


Drake, Anthony and Ashley are treasure hunters around the world, originally from the United States. They are engaged in this business not so long ago, that it would not be possible to call them professionals, but quite successfully. On the wave of their success, they decided to visit the most dangerous place among the treasure hunters - the Minotaur Labyrinth. They managed find information about it only in the very depths of the Internet. According to known data, the entrance to the labyrinth can not be found by your own, unless it calls for you.

Crete, Greece


Once in Greece, they went to the island of Crete in the city of Heraklion. It is there, according to the data, the alleged location of the labyrinth. 4 days they could not find the entrance, but one early morning they managed to find it where they believed they had been checked several times. At some point they already wanted to abandon their venture, but something unknown forced them to come inside. Thirst for profit or fame?

Entering the labyrinth, they decided to split up. Each of them had a flashlight, chalk and radio. Among other things, Drake had a first aid kit, and Anthony had a PM pistol, which he inherited from his father.

Entrance to the labyrinth


After a small search, Ashley managed to find the mysterious key, but she was not very careful and accidentally awakened the skeleton. She was very frightened and tried to escape from him. When she already thought that the skeleton was behind her, she was at a dead end, where in the last moments, the skeleton managed to sink the sword into her eye.


A woman's cry was heard all over the labyrinth. Anthony called Ashley on the radio, but she did not answer. They were long in love with each other and after this trip, Anthony planned to marry her, and on the found treasures arrange an incredible wedding. At one point, all of Anthony's dreams were destroyed. He had been trying to find her for a long time, but because of the panic he was only more lost. Going too deep, he ran into the Minotaur. The Minotaur saw Anthony lost hope and did not try to catch him. He just followed him, driving him crazy. Anthony could not resist, took the gun in his hand and shot himself in the head.


The shot was heard all over the labyrinth. Drake already knew what had happened. He tried to go back, but the labyrinth seemed to only confuse him more. It seemed to him that he was walking in circles, about the same place. At one point he found a grate, which leads upstairs from the labyrinth. But no matter how much he tried to break it or shout, no one came to help. For almost twenty-four hours he sat in such despair, he no longer knew what to do. Drake slowly, with trembling hands, untied his shoelaces from his shoes, tied a noose on the grate and hung himself.

About This Game

Ancient Guardian - action adventure in procedurally-generated locations. You play as father, who have to find his lost daughter, avoiding meeting dangerous enemies, bypassing traps and solving puzzles.

The game takes place in our days. While walking around the ancient city of Heraklion, the daughter of the protagonist escapes, and the troubled father goes to search her.

Procedurally-generated locations

Each of your sessions will be unique for each level:
- In the first act of the player awaits the treacherous labyrinth of the Minotaur. Each time a random level is generated with different corridors, passages and paths. In a random order, traps and key points are added.
- In the second act (in development) the island will appear before you. We will not go into details, as this level is still in development, but in it every game will be unique.

Myths and legends

The basis of our game lay real myths and legends around the world. For example, in the first and second locations, we used the myths of Ancient Greece, only slightly changing them under the plot of our game.

A variety of monsters and items

At each level you are waiting for different, unlike each other monsters and objects. Minotaur, skeletons, gun, key and a lot more!


Once you complete the story, you will have the opportunity to compete with other players in endless mode on highscore or on time in the story mode.
