Return To Castle Coris

Postby Lazzah » Mon Feb 17, 2020 9:10 am

Hi all,

This is the working title of my next game, 8th in the "Alaric Blackmoon" series.

The intrepid Duke has returned to Castle Coris, where he thwarted the Xixon sorcerer Zalazar's plan to destroy the world with a horde of demons from Hell. The castle has been undergoing renovation by Baron Coris's heir, Thorion, who has found a mysterious tunnel leading from the cavern where Alaric fought the sorcerer and rescued the would-be sacrifice, Megan. A riding accident has prevented the Baron from investigating where the tunnel leads, so he invites Duke Alaric to explore the tunnel.

What mysteries await Alaric as he enters the tunnel? Find out in RETURN TO CASTLE CORIS - coming to the ADRIFT website soon!

I had hoped that this would be a game involving Alaric's wife, Bronwynn (of Run, Bronwynn, Run! fame) and that you would be able to switch between the two characters, with each having separate tasks and puzzles to complete. However, I have to admit that I found the programming required for this to be a bit beyond my capabilities and I have reluctantly had to revert to a single protagonist.

(starts reading first sentences, quickly closes eyes and presses mental "UNREAD"-button repeatedly.)

The button must be broken because I now know what I'm working toward in SoCC.
