Clans

is a gothic puzzle-combat platformer with gore galore, putting a strategic twist on the classic hack and slash games of the ‘80s and ‘90s.’

Prepare to be Slain! Will you accept the challenge... 



Players control Bathoryn, a hero in a Gothic world, seeking to liberate the 6 great towers from 6 deadly overlords. 

Bathoryn must battle his way through a doomed land packed with gruesome pixel art foes before ascending (or sometimes descending) each tower, defeating puzzles, traps and monsters alike. At the heart of each tower, he must confront a mighty overlord. Defeat it and Bathoryn’s quest continues. Fail, and you’ll die gruesomely – mauled by werewolves, disintegrated by floating monstrosities, squashed by great weights or torn apart by hidden blades. And you will fail… 


There are 3 key areas to be mastered in order to beat Slain! The order of Slain! goes as follows... 

  • Learn to wield 3 deadly elemental weapons, each one exploiting weaknesses in different enemy types. Each weapon has a different combo, timing and 'ideal' use. Mastering quick switching between weapons is the key to success! 
  • Learn placement and timings of enemies and traps 
  • Generate, conserve and use your mana wisely 

Accompanied by the heavy metal visuals is an even heavier metal soundtrack recorded by Curt Victor Bryant (formally of Celtic Frost).


Main Features 

  • Unique puzzle-combat with non linear progression. 
  • 10+(?) hours of bone-crushing, metal fueled mayhem & gore. 
  • Choose from 3 unique weapons in your fight against the demon horde. 
  • Full soundtrack recorded by Curt Victor Bryant formally of Celtic Frost.
  • Secrets (shhh). 
  • Boss fights, mini-boss fights, sub-mini-boss fights, macro-sub-mini-boss fights! 
  • No leveling, no grinding, no crafting!
