GOG release: “Pharaonic”

There are just not enough action games with an Egyptian background, but Milkstone Studios sidescrolling 3D action-RPG Pharaonic tries to rectify this injustice.

I don’t know what it is about action-RPGs usually trying to be all bleak and high fantasy, as it’s also possible to present more lush environments. Granted, Diablo II had a great Egyptian-style level, and other recent outings like Zenith, Stories: The Path of Destinies, or Titan Quest – Anniversary Edition brought more colorful graphics to the genre. However, these weren’t really Egypt-centric and didn’t have the side-on perspective.

So it’s great to finally play something a bit different. Trying to fight against the oppressive Red Pharao, one has to hone combat skills as in the tough-as-nails Dark Souls series while leveling up and choosing the right equipment, spell and weapon system. Despite being a side-scroller focused on vicious battle against all kinds of human and supernatural enemies, one can also follow different paths and talk to people, although if there’s really a deep story behind all the bloody carnage is questionable. It’s certainly no God of War, but it looks and sounds great, even if it doesn’t involve brutal decapitations or dismemberment.

The game was already released on Steam a while back, but it now received its DRM-free version and a 20% discount that will last until October 26, 12:59 PM UTC.
