Reviews

“The dev is great about updates, fixing bugs, and communicating with players. This series really restored my faith in gaming in general and in indie games. So give it a try and I hope you have as much enjoyment out of the series as I have had.”

“Who created this game knows what necromancer means, not just a class that throws debuffs at enemies or that it's just a tank by draining hp or that's only able to summon (...) Necromancer is a class capable of massacring using numbers, able to use the opponent's forces against it, and that game caught that. In short, I loved this game.”

“THIS. GAME. IS. F*CKIN AWESOME.”
