Default Witchmarsh - A New ARPG Set in The 1920's

May 18th, 2014, 06:00
Witchmarsh is a new ARPG being developed by a studio called Inglenook. They are asking for50,000 on Kickstater to fund their game. Here is the usual pitch video.


An action RPG set in 1920s Massachusetts. Create and manage a team of investigators in a story-driven supernatural mystery.

It's the Roaring Twenties! Join an unlikely team of detectives as they charge headlong into the darkest corners of rural America. Their mission: find and return the missing 'Witchmarsh Twelve' who vanished under mysterious circumstances.

A handsome reward is in store should they succeed, but with the supernatural lurking around every corner, will any of them live long enough to collect it?

God, I hope that's the real in-game music!

Interesting setting. Also liked the music. Too bad they made it a side scroller. Tactical turn based, and I would've been all over it. I wish them luck, though. Always nice to see someone trying something different.

Dunno about the game, but I want to buy that OST!

The composer is Francisco Cerda, who has more game music in his portfolio. No doubt the OST will be on sale. Great music there.
I don't back Kickstarters on principle, because I can't stand all the pre-release hype that never comes true, but I'm sorely tempted by this one. The gameplay looks like a lot of fun!

Ugh, no thanks. I already lived through the 80's, I have no desire to live through them again. (The music is well done, though.)

I'm struggling to find a reason to play a C64 sidescroller ARPG.

Can anyone help me?

Let's pretend it's 2014 and not 1985, though.

Maybe because it might be fun to play and the story might be compelling?

That doesn't sound very realistic. Afterall, I'm not playing a lot of C64 games these days.

Stories are a dime a dozen, though. I'd rather read a book than suffer through that kind of throwback.

To each his own, though

Oh come on, DArtagnan!

The game's premise seems pretty quirky and the experience might even prove to be cerebral enough to engage one as picky as you

The artstyle did remind me somewhat of Flashback


I must say I'm intrigued and since the game is priced at 10, it's an easy backing from me

Let's just say I have my doubts, but I have no wish to rain on nostalgia parades

Let me know how it turns out, though

I remember loving Another World, not so much Flashback. I stopped playing platformers after my Spectrum/C64 days.

That said, I have extremely fond memories of Manic Miner, Kokatoni Wilf, Underworld and games like that

Commander Keen, crystal caves, and so on, and that super hard game which almost none could beat, with former disney artists for PC…. if I could only remmember the name.

A New ARPG Set in The 1920's
Judging by that trailer, I was going to guess the 1980's

Alright, DArtagnan - I won't be pushy

Speaking of platformers, anybody remember this gem - Gods?


Man, this childhood game blew my tiny mind

Yes, I actually enjoyed Gods for a little while - because I was a huge fan of Bitmap Brothers and their visual style. Of course it didn't last - as it was still just a platformer with minimal RPG elements.

I also enjoyed Chaos Engine a lot, but that's because it had cooperative gameplay
