    Anime-Style Action side-scroller, Lost Ruins launches a Kickstarter Campaign

    Altari Games launched a Kickstarter campaign for their anime infused 2D action survival game Lost Ruins recently. Lost Ruins is a dark, 2D side-scrolling Metroidvania, playing as a young girl who has awoken in a strange, dimly lit dungeon without any of her memories. With the help of a mysterious magician, Beatrice, the girl goes on a perilous journey to survive, find answers, battle monsters, and unlock the secrets of the lost ruins and her missing memories.

    Lost Ruins features anime-style pixel art with modern action gameplay. Players can customize their style by equipping two different weapons and spells at once, along with armor, and items. Combat can be both fast and methodical. Equippable weapons such as knives, swords, axes, and bows feature different speeds, traits, and effects. Players can attack, dodge roll, deflect projectiles, and cast spells at enemies while surviving the lost ruins. Boss fights are dramatic and feature uniquely designed female characters that help to unfold the story.

    “It is hard to find a game that combines modern game design with an anime style. We wanted to make such a game because we wanted to play it ourselves – “We are experienced in online game development. However, we liked console games and wanted to make our own decisions, so we created our own company.”

    Park Jinhong – leader and art director of Lost Ruins at Seoul-based Altari Games

    Lost Ruins allows players to cast a variety of spells through wands, tonics, and scrolls. Elements within the world will react with other elements realistically. Flammable liquids will be set ablaze when in contact with lit lanterns. Ice magic will freeze bodies of water, making them dangerously cold. The more players understand the environment and how to use it to their advantage, the safer they will be and the more effective they will become. Players can choose a playstyle that works best for them.

    The Lost Ruins Kickstarter campaign has an initial goal of $10,000 and is targeting a PC release, with stretch goals for Switch, PS4, and Xbox One. Backers can support various tiers and receive rewards including the digital game, an art book, additional costumes, even the ability to name an NPC, or create a boss, weapon, or enemy. The campaign will run from August 3rd until September 3rd.
