To Infinity And RPG! ‘Malevolance: The Sword Of Ahkranox’ | The Indie Game Magazine

Old school RPG with modern technology? Check. Looking for funding? Check. Is Malevolence: The Sword of Ahkranox worthy of your money? Check.


Malevolence: The Sword of Ahkranox is the kind of game that I find hard to explain without either getting lost or over excited. Let’s just start with the concept – it’s an RPG of the old school variety with a procedurally generated…everything. Yet, it’s a persistent world meaning that when things have been created they stay there forever. To clarify, that’s an infinite number of weapons, items, spells, monsters, dungeons, cities, countryside and even dialogue. Gulp.


Of course you’ll be waving the red flags right about now as that seems far too ambitious and what kind of game can get away with relying on such a gimmick? Well, that’s not one I can answer but the developers seem determined enough and certainly seem to know what they’re doing. The angle they’re going for is recreating the classic turn-based RPGs such as Might and Magic and Eye of the Beholder with modern technology.


If you’re up for this and want to get a copy of Malevolence: The Sword of Ahkranox and lots of other items related to the game then you should head over to the Indie GoGo page and give Visual Outbreak all of your money. Just pour it down their gusset!


Malevolence: The Sword of Ahkranox is expected to release in Q4 of 2012 for PC and more information can be found on the official website.
