Indie initiative Puuba and publishers Mastertronic are bringing high-speed dungeon-crawling to Steam next Summer with The Weaponographist.
The Weaponographist is a high-speed, dangerous dungeon-crawler starring Doug McGrave; famous demon hunting bad boy for hire. Highest level, bestest gear, ruggedly handsome, and unrepentant jerk. For refusing to help a poor town plagued by demons, you are immediately- and deservedly- cursed. Your powers, your wealth, and your weapons – all gone! To overcome the curse, you’ll need to clear out the dungeon using whatever weapons you can find. Fighting your way through, you are forced to use the weapons and spells dropped by enemies, as they fall apart in your hands.
Fill up your combo meter by defeating the hordes, vanquish demons to regain your strength and weaken the curse while you can. But beware! When you are not attacking, your combo will quickly drain away and the curse will continue to take its toll. Only by killing monsters swiftly, adapting to new weapons and slowly removing the curse can Doug make his way to the depths of the dungeon and face the final boss.
There will be no rest for the wicked!
Danny Garfield, Founder of Puuba says: “Swords! Machine Guns! Whips! Pogo-Sticks! Hammers! Poo Gas! The Heads of the Dead! We clearly like games with a lot going on. A veritable circus of creatures to slay!”
Stuart Morton, Producer, Mastertronic, adds: “After the incredible gaming mash-up of genres that was Concursion, we are delighted to be working with Puuba again on their new project, The Weaponographist. The dungeon crawler genre is up next to get the distinctive Puuba flavour and I for one can’t wait to get monster slaying.”
Doug McGrave, Demon-Hunter-for-hire, declares: “Do I look like I am a not-for-profit organisation? I’ve made my millions fighting the biggest battles with the deadliest demons, but give me a break! A hero’s life doesn’t pay for itself. Charity is for the weak and I deserve a day off!”
