What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to receive feedback from the Steam community to help us expand and improve the game ahead of launch.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“At least three or four months, but we do not rule out extending it as long as necessary to offer the best possible product.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We would like to add new enemies, more secret rooms and new puzzles to the game. Also modify all the mechanics that do not quite fit. Also, we would like to add more game modes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is perfectly functional and completable, from start to finish. Between 15 and 20 hours long, more than 20 to achieve 100%. Near 100 collectable Neconomicon pages full of lore, Dozens of mysteries, side quests and puzzles and over 9 Boss Fights .Apart from the changes and suggestions implemented, the final version would have more content that would be added progressively during Early Access.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Most likely the game slightly raises its price after Early Access (10-30% more)”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Listening to the opinions of the community, attending to their suggestions, implementing some of their ideas and, most importantly, observing their evolution and interaction with the game. Any doubt or suggestion you can use our email "" or the Steam Discussion boards.”

About This Game

Kharon's Crypt is an eerie non-linear dungeon crawler game full of puzzles, riddles and deadly challenges, and graphics designed to follow the aesthetics of the beloved Game Boy Color. In Kharon's Crypt, you'll be playing as Kharon (a being thought to be death itself) in his mission to escape from the crypt where he had been sealed by a deranged king that wanted to elude death.

As Kharon, your abilities are flying, going through physical objects, and stun your enemies. To defeat your opponents and escape from the crypt, you'll need to steal the bodies of your enemies by possessing them. You'll be able to fly in a bat's body, fight from inside a skeleton, or even use a mimic's abilities to help yourself hide.

Do you have what it takes to escape from the crypt and compel the Deranged King to meet his fate?


  • You can possess all exanimates (enemies)

  • Each exanimate has unique properties: bats can fly, skeletons can open locks...

  • Multiple items with different powers and abilities

  • Near 100 collectable Necronomicon pages full of lore

  • Nonlinear metroidvania world design

  • Dozens of mysteries, side quets and puzzles

  • And more than 9 challenging Boss Fights!

Colorblind-Friendly Design
Kharon's Crypt has been designed taking into account three types of color blindness –protanopia, deuteranopia and tritanopia– in order to make the game more accessible.
