emergeWorlds a small indie studio out of Brisbane Australia is crafting a loveable story and characters that hark back to classic games of the Monkey Island series and Zelda Link's Awakening.
 
About Dros
Discover the world of Dros, a dark fairy-tale adventure about two unlikely heroes stuck with each other...literally. 
Play as Captain and his slimy sidekick Little Dros as they grudgingly work together to solve mind-bending puzzles, battle creepy enemies and make their way to the top of the Machine.
 
Inspiration
Dros is inspired by classic fantasy films of the 80's & 90's like Labyrinth, Willow and The Dark Crystal. Combined with quirky characters, puzzles and action seen in games like The Secret of Monkey Island and Zelda - Links Awakening.
 
Heartfelt Narrative
Dros is a story-driven 3D, puzzle platformer with dual-character mechanics.
It’s a heartfelt and whacky story about the challenges in getting along. Captain and Little Dros will learn how to overcome their differences by working together.
 
Delicately Hand Crafted Art
We have delicately crafted every detail to create an immersive world for Dros. We take great pride in our art, design and production quality.  Dros features a compelling story and characters, with an emphasis on puzzle solving, platforming and action.

  • Story Driven Gameplay - A loveable story about two unlikely heroes stuck with each other.
