Inspired by 80’s games such as Dungeon Master, Wizardry or Eye of the Beholder, Dark & Under II brings the Dungeon crawler genre back to 1bit handhelds.

Explore the Kingdom of Usmal and attempt to foil a conspiracy aiming at the King’s demise. Pass through various regions of the world, filled with dangerous dungeons, and battle a variety of enemies, ranging from rats to ghostly knights. Along the way you will also encounter various NPCs that will send you on errands and other quests.

In addition to the game, I wrote a Companion Book: The first section of the book provides an overview of the game and its development. A second section is the strategy guide, with the maps for each levels and an overview of the quests. The remainder of the book is devoted to an interactive adventure novel where you, the reader, chooses the actions of the book’s hero, Terek ‘The Whisper’.

All interior illustrations where hand-drawn by myself.


The book can be purchase on Blurb, at this address.
