Kologeon is a dark mystic action adventure set in a procedurally generated realm tormented by demons and spirits. You are an immortal soul that can traverse dimensions outside of physical bodies, fighting for centuries as you establish permanent monuments to mark your journey.
Kologeon builds around the ideas of an unfolding experience, freedom of exploration, and self-discovery where quests and guides are not present letting you craft your own journey. With procedural generation we aim to create un-repetitive experiences where death is still a setback but won’t mean that you’ll have to memorize levels and replay the same thing over again. However this isn’t a roguelike. Your actions and progress stay permanent. Kologeon combines all the best from traditional RPGs and roguelikes to form an un-repetitive but progressive experiences.
We always wanted to create something dark, abstruse, fast paced and mysterious where your path is unknown as you journey into a creation formed by dreams and nightmares. Where the whole game is like a one big journey with no hubs to return to.
Kologeon is currently in development for PC, Mac, and Linux.
- Explore and interact with a world built on top of itself, coexisting with another.
- Uncover the story through a gloomy dark atmosphere, interaction with spirits, and events you witness or cause. Every place and feature of the game is carefully crafted with a consideration of the bigger story. We want to create something deep that you could really lose yourself inside of.
- Fly, roll, and rip through demons with a fast satisfying mobility based combat involving astral projection, giant spiritual weapons, time disruption, possession and manipulation of souls. Forge weapons from your enemies and manifest their abilities.
- Enemies are able to dodge, parry, and tear you to pieces as the game is easy to pick up but difficult to master.
We are heavily inspired by anime that focus on dynamic breathtaking action and games that have deep mysterious story elements. But where many of those games emphasize on story telling through mostly text or dialogue, Kologeon focuses on telling the story through interactions and events.
Inter dimensional weapons:
Wield and combo with multiple spiritual weapons at once to create blood gushingly devastating effects. No weapon is similar. Each is lovingly crafted with their own advantages, disadvantages, and style of play. Weapons are bound to a couple of hits at a time before they are regained which will make you utilize all of them at appropriate times. You will collect demon souls and forge them into weapons that fit your style of play. There’s no tedious stats or leveling up. You will progress through forging greater divine weapons and fragments.
Items are fragments of once existed demi-gods. They will be embedded into weapons altering their power instead of kept on the player. Strategize and choose which fragments to have on which weapons as they will be activated only when a weapon they are assigned to is wielded.
Realm travel (go out of the body):
Traverse dimensions. Split from your body to access the astral world, manipulate souls, possess demons, and discover/interact with spirits. This will be crucial to the combat, story, and exploration. Switching realms will materialize everything in that realm so you could interact with the spiritual world whilst avoiding demons, however your body will stay behind unconscious. With each second you are outside of a body your soul will lose momentum, leaving you to carefully decide when to use it.
While in the spiritual world you have the ability to slow down your perception of time, though damaging your body.
Interact with spirits and possess demons to reveal their memories. No need for conversations.
The world has a lot of vertically elevated grounds where exploring won’t mean just sliding in a 2d plane but will be a traversal in air, discovering areas from interconnected pathways, shadows, and light. You will glide and fly in combat as well as transverse high areas.
When the body dies the soul loses the ability to interact with the world having to be resurrected from left ashes forming a body. Death won’t mean a traveling back in time video game cliché but will be your resurrection and a continuation of your previous life.
