Hands of Necromancy [Planned Release: 2022]

Postby Rachael » Sat Mar 26, 2022 3:26 pm





Hands of Necromancy is being made by a team of people from GZDoom and Heretic/Hexen community.

We started to make the game in December 2020, the plan was to make a mix between a Heretic-like gameplay and a metroidvania style like Wonderboy 3 Dragons Trap.
The player will have 7 base weapons and 4 transformations, each transformation has 2 attacks.

Gameplay is fast paced but the player will have to find the transformations and keys and do some puzzles to complete the game.

The game is around 90% finished, only a few maps left, we could be releasing the full game soon!

It looks quite promising and quite fun.
I really like the games Heretic and Wonder Boy III, I got to the middle of the remake of the latter Sega Master System game, I enjoyed exploring the locations available using different animal forms.
No matter how much it will cost, I will definitely buy it when it releases. :)

Transformations? A little hint of a Shadowcaster homage, too? That's awesome!

It will be a commercial game. There will be a playable teaser version available, though.

I need this, looks gorgeous! Also I am very happy to see BloomTeam members there, and Nash too... Wishlisted, can't wait. Pity that GZDoom doesn't allow Achievements on Steam, but it is not a problem :wub:

Looks intriguing. I hope it doesn't have the inventory clusterfuck of Heretic & Hexen games though :P Or switch puzzles :)

Don't worry, it will be much more accessible even for new players of classic fps, there will be even an optional journal quest to help the player in case. :)
No hidden switch or hard stuff like this ^^
The mapping mix the realism style and maze style, more or less ^^
There will be streaming for the game and some videos online soon, to show more :wink:

This looks way too cool and it has the ''offical'' flair to it.

I also appreciate the whole announce when its nearly done method instead of announcing early.

Sweet! I played Hedon a while back, but I am not sure if that one counts as a Metroidvania, so it would be cool to see how this one plays. I am usually not a fan of respawning enemies in first-person shooters, unless it involves getting experience and loot (e.g. Borderlands), but if the gameplay is engaging enough, I might be able to overlook that aspect. Even if I do not like it, I might still get it to support the GZDoom community. We shall see! :lol:

I am a bit confused by the description on Steam:

Hands of Necromancy is a Dark Fantasy First Person Shooter and metroidvania game, similar to Heretic, made with the GZDoom engine. Find your weapons, fight evil forces, use the special abilities of special transformations to find your path! Show how powerful you are as a Necromancer!


I am not very familiar with Hexen myself, but I was under the impression that it was much closer to a Metroidvania than Heretic.
