Welcome to Relictus. You are a nameless, traveling mercenary that has found himself lost in the most treacherous place imaginable, with no understanding of why you�re there or where exactly this place is. By surveying the dank dungeon you�ve been lost in, you�ve come to realize that there are three guardians preventing you from progressing forward. Only with these guardians� deaths may you see the light of day once again. You will die�many times�but will you succeed? Relictus is a dungeon crawler that combines necessity for dexterity from games such as Dark Souls with elements from classics such as The Legend of Zelda. Gameplay is fast paced and rewarding while also being a challenging puzzle at the same time. The goal of the player is to defeat each of the three bosses and, as a result, escape the dungeon.
