ABOUT

Forsaken Castle is a 16-bit style, action exploration platformer, about a paladin and her fight against evil.

Inspired by classic metroidvania games, you will discover new abilities, fight deadly creatures, and explore a handcrafted world created in a retro pixel art style.

STORY

Lily is a newly appointed paladin sent to investigate the appearance of undead near the sleepy little village of Atoh. Her search lead her to an old castle that was well known to have been long since abandoned. Now, the castle has seemingly come back to life, with faint lights visible and the drawbridge closed in the distance.

Being new to her order and armed with a desire to prove herself a capable paladin, she decides to find a way into the castle and destroy the source of the undead, but doesn't realize the evil she is ultimately about to face.
