The developers at Radin Games recently released their third project, titled Eternum. Available on Windows devices as of April 21, Eternum is a completely free downloadable game, and was created over an 18 month period.
Inspired by classic titles like Bomb Jack and Ghosts ’n Goblins, Eternum puts players in control of an aged warrior as he plunges into the depths of dangerous dungeons in search of eternal youth. The arcade style action platformer acts as a tribute and “sequel” to Ghosts’n Goblins in that the main character, Sir Arthur, has aged to the point of losing most everything he loved and treasured. Desperate to regain the glory and strength he had during his youth, Sir Arthur descended into the subterranean kingdom of Samarnath, in search of a remedy to his plight.
Plenty of monsters lurk in the dark depths of Samarnath, but Sir Arthur is determined to find the 5 magical orbs that when combined, will provide the bearer eternal youth. The title features about an hour of total playtime, 25 separate levels, retro 16-bit graphics, secret levels, and special boss fights. The sound effects and music were provided by The Wardenclyffe. Additional trailers and images are available from the official Eternum website, along with the direct download.
