Whether you praise the sun or fear the old blood, ELDERBORN

Gather the essence
of your foes to build up your power level. Die, and lose all the essence you were carrying
. Bring it back to safety and increase your attributes, and unlock skills that will aid you in combat. Master various weapons and figure out best timing and tactics. You will need every advantage when facing a mighty and skilled boss.
The 80s when we were born, and the 90s when we grew up were full of awesome
. We had Arnold Schwarzenegger as Conan the Barbarian
(and the mighty good Conan cartoon series), we had He-Man
, we had Simon Bisley's Slaine
comic books, we had... you get the picture. Pop culture was GOOD, and full of rich flavors.
Then came video games to bring our adventures in fantastic land to a whole new level. We were pushing on, knee-deep in the dead, against the legions of hell. We were spinning our nine-inch-nail guns, waiting for the ancient beasts to come around the corner. We were the dark messiahs kicking against the minions of darkness. It was the dream. ELDERBORN
is our tribute to all these amazing, colorful memories.
While developing ELDERBORN
, as a rule of thumb, we look at every piece of our work and ask ourselves "is this METAL AF*
?" If the answer is "no", we roll back, put on our headphones, and do that element over.
Jokes aside, heavy metal, especially in its heroic, power-metal variety, has been a great inspiration to the game's motifs and aesthetics. We want you to feel like the hero of the metal sagas. We want your eyes filled with imagery worthy of album covers.(*METAL ACTION FANTASY) ELDERBORN
