Indie development studio Emberheart Games has released its pixel art adventure puzzle game Courier of the Crypts on Steam. A new trailer was also released.
In the game players must survive as a Courier on his first errand to the ominous crypts. Your main tool to achieve the delivery is a magic torch, which you use to illuminate your path, defend from darkness and solve puzzles.
The magic torch plays a significant role in the game and can be considered the primary gameplay mechanic. The environment will react to its flames in different ways so it will be common for you to toggle the flame on and off throughout the game. Some enemies will leave you alone while others will try to extinguish the torch.
The game contains over 20 maps to explore containing secrets, puzzles and a variety of enemies. An achievement and perfection system is also available.
Courier of the Crypts released on April 18, 2019, for PC.
