Trinity Team studio, the developers behind the overwhelming crowdfunding success ‘Slaps and Beans’ and global publishing house 101XP are thrilled to announce that the prologue for The Darkest Tales, their action-adventure 2D platformer, is officially available to download on Steam for PC, starting today.
In The Darkest Tales – Into the Nightmare, players follow the adventure of Teddy, a grumpy old bear brought to life to rescue his owner Alicia, and Lighty, a chatty glowing orb fairy, as they embark on a journey through distorted fairy-tale planes inhabited by bloodthirsty enemies and nail-biting platforming.
What would Little Red Riding Hood do to the big bad wolf if she had two sharp daggers and a thirst for blood? Enter the nightmare and see once harmonious lands turned into hostile terrains, filled with hungry mechanical wolves and sneaky fiery bats. Tread carefully and keep your eyes peeled, as you may be next on her menu.
Could Jack ever climb up the beanstalk if it was covered in thorns, carnivorous plants, and haunted by a deadly thunderstorm? Eat the famous beans, learn to play with magic, and use your finest skills to make your way to the top of this unforgivingly dangerous climb. Watch your step though, as Teddy is only made of fabric!
Get your hands on sharp enchanted weapons and jump, slice, and dash your way through anyone who stands in your way.
Develop your skill tree to learn a ton of new tricks that include faster healing, damage boost, and much more!
You may remember them differently… Do battle with a ton of once friendly, now deadly, fairytale characters turned evil bosses. First up? A double blade wielding, deceiving Little Red Riding Hood.
Fully voiced characters, a rich storyline filled with recognizable fairy tale lore, and gorgeous yet haunting landscapes and levels.
“When we began working on The Darkest Tales we wanted to create a dark fairytale world for curious adventurers and lovers of the genre to explore, be challenged by, and get lost in.” said Marco Agricola, co-founder of Trinity Team. “We’re proud to release the final version of our two level prologue on Steam today, and officially invite all those brave enough to step into the nightmare… and come out victorious!”
“The Darkest Tales is an immersive experience, setting the scene with gorgeous maps and terrains filled with familiar, yet fearsome fairy-tale characters and intense boss battles,” said Aleksandra Volskaya, Head of Brand Management & PR at 101XP. “We’re looking forward to hearing what players think of our prologue, and are incredibly excited to reveal all that’s coming next, as the title sets up for a full release”.
Players can embark on the first two full levels of this future release by downloading the game on Steam completely for free from right now.
