An Engaging Narrative
Death is meaningless in the Spine of the Cursed. Everything that dies comes back to existence, eventually. Players must navigate this ancient realm of danger in search of answers and powers that will enable them to uncover the dark truth behind this veiled land and the dark truths behind your own past. As The Betrayer, they embark on a story rich action adventure game that combines quick platforming action with an engaging world, crafting, characters, combat, and abilities.

Crafting at the Core
Part of overcoming the challenges in this world is learning to use all the tools you have at your disposal. One of the most valuable pieces of your toolkit is your ability to craft. Make potions to restore your health or to increase your strength. Make weapons to brutalize your enemies and armor to protect your tender bits.
Deadly Platforming and Skilled Combat
Not only will your wits be put to the test but your reflexes will as well. It's not all just stabby-stab. Run and jump your way to victory - and likely die trying, many times, before you succeed.
