For centuries, mankind has traveled the land to raid dungeons for riches and glory. This is not their story. You are Skully, an enchanted skeleton, living in the deepest part of the dungeon. You awaken to the terrible sound of the alarm bell, letting you know that intruders have been seen within the dungeon.

Skelattack November Update



Hello, dungeon crew!

Welcome to November's Skelattack update. If you don't follow us on Twitter or are part of our Skelattack Discord, be sure to follow-us as we've had many updates happening on the game. We have held a few Developers Den streams on Mixer showcasing lots of new items for the game!





Our team has been hard at work adding more to the game. Just this past month, we released our brand new demo that includes updated art assets, enhanced character controls, enemy knight parry system, and a lot more. That demo was released on Skelattack.com, Gamejolt, and IndieDB. We just recently also released the demo on Steam so you can enjoy the demo right alongside your collection of other games. So be sure to download the demo from the Steam store page!



If you haven't played the new demo yet, bosses have gotten more difficult. Multistage boss battles have been implemented. You now have to switch up ways to defeat the bosses with new attacks at various stages of the fight. Bosses also now have the ability to block your magic of respawning at a blue torch. You have limited respawns during the boss fights when your immortality torches are blocked. If you die too many times, you are sent to see the Shepherd of the Damned where you can choose to jump back in the fight at a spawn point before the boss or quit the game and jump back out to the dungeon hub.



Knights no longer just take your hits. We've implemented a parry system where they will block your attacks and will attack after. The knights have upped their game! Acid pools are now scattered throughout the dungeon that will singe your bones!

Another exciting thing we've been working on are two new levels: The Crypt and the Lava Forge where things heat up! These will add two brand new bosses to the game that will include new attacks and challenges. The Crypt is the underground area where the dead are stored. It sounds like a party when they are your undead neighbor! The Lava Forge will test your platforming skills as you avoid burning up in the molten earth.

On the business end, our team has been in discussions for partnerships that will expand the reach of our reverse dungeon crawler. This will include new markets, larger marketing, and more. Stay tuned!

We are working hard to add many exciting things to the game. Where we started with Skelattack versus where we are now are completely different. The gameplay mechanics, the story, the characters, and the levels have all been expanding. We can't wait to show you more of the new areas and some of the reworked assets we've been designing.

So download the new demo on Steam, follow us on Twitter and Discord, and stay up-to-date on the latest Skelattack happenings!

The Bones are Back in Town: New Skelattack Demo Released Today!



Armies of the undead, we call to you for unrelenting fanfare and spoopy fun! Today, we are releasing a BRAND NEW updated demo for Skelattack!

Expect a different experience as you run Skully and his faithful bat companion Imber through the sewers in the dungeon! On your mission to keep humans out of your underground home and away from its treasures and secrets, you’ll notice we’ve added moving platforms, enhanced NPC interactions, updated our environments, added a new area, added new characters, added more complex boss fights…the addition goes on and on, but math is for nerds, so let’s play Skelattack!

We can’t wait for you to try this newest version of our game, as it is most likely what you can expect to be the final version of the sewers that will be part of our eventual launch! We welcome any and all feedback and exclamations of glee, and encourage you to take charge and defend your dungeon!

Reviews

“...A cute spin on the usual dungeon rhetoric. Skelattack's demo is promising as well. Skully's animations are spot-on, and jumping around and over the dungeon's many traps feels responsive.”
PCGamer

“Skelattack is flipping the roguelike genre on its head. It’s still got tight controls and is fun to play, but the ideas are fresh and exciting, and potentially very challenging.”
Red Bull Games

“Oh, this looks beautiful!”
OniShuken Gaming

About This Game

A bell begins ringing incessantly in your quarters. A frantic friend paces nervously as you awaken from your undead slumber. He warns you of invading humans! It is up to you to heed his words, arm yourself for battle, and venture out into your unprotected underground home.

You are Skully, an undead skeleton whose sole purpose is to protect the dungeon he and many others call home. Along with your bat companion Imber, you will travel through sewers, lush underground nature preserves, and many other perilous environments. You will do so in the name of protecting your friends, guarding your treasures, and keeping hidden the dungeon's deepest secrets.

This is Skelattack!



Skelattack puts an unconventional twist on your classic dungeon-crawler. Instead of playing the human hero fighting his way through the dungeon, killing all the baddies and pillaging all the loot, you play as one of the dungeon's typical skeleton NPCs. This is life (or rather, death) on the other side of the aisle: the plight of the creatures whose home is constantly under threat from those who reside above-ground.

Here are some of the things you can expect while playing through Skelattack:

Enemies Galore!



Humans aren't the only creatures that stand in your way. There are a host of enemies that exist in the dungeon, mindlessly hunting you and impeding your progress as you try to fulfill your natural calling. Take up your sword and beat them back along with the so-called "heroes" who threaten you and your home. If your sword can't do the trick on its own...

Wield Powerful Magic!



You think maybe setting a bad guy on fire from a distance would be fun? Feel like leaping over your enemies once, twice, three times in a row? Getting your bony butt kicked and need some of that sweet, sweet medicine to get you back to full health? Well then choose some magic and transform yourself from an undead warrior to an undead WIZARD!

Wall Jump Extravaganza!



Make your way over and through the most perilous pitfalls in the dungeon by wall jumping and sliding until your non-existent muscles ache!

Bask in the Ambience!



Skelattack's gorgeous and dynamic environments are sure to set your geek heart all aflutter. Whether journeying through the dangerous but delightful Greenery or traveling through the echoing emptiness of the sewers, there are sights to be seen and obstacles to overcome at every turn.

Talk to Other Undead Friends and Freaks!



Whether for a quick laugh or a helpful hint, make sure to chat with your fellow dungeon-dwellers (including your winged friend Imber) to learn more about your home and the rich story contained within it.

Big, Bad Boss Battles!



Set your clobberin' speed to full as you come up against the most deadly and cleverest enemies you'll face in the dungeon! Don't get them too mad, though, or they'll turn into their FINAL FORM and REALLY deliver a beating! You won't just respawn if you get beat too many times; instead, you'll find yourself having to...

Make a Choice!



Land in the Astral Plane, and you'll have to make a decision: re-join the fight and continue on your quest, or embrace life after un-death--er, death after un-life?--either way, you'll forsake the rest of your journey and find yourself back at the beginning of your eternal quest!



A spooky 2D action platformer unlike any other, Skelattack will have you pitting yourself against evils, obstacles and areas that will be sure to keep you coming back (from the dead) for more! Be sure to visit http://skelattack.com/ to download a FREE demo of Skelattack, and for all Skelattack-related news, stay tuned here on our Steam page and be sure to follow us on Twitter at @Skelattack!
