Description

Graal Seeker is a 2D game that blends RPG with roguelike mechanics and real-time tactical battles. It recreates the initiatory journey of a knight seeking the Holy Grail in fifth century Britain.
In Graal Seeker, you must complete three phases one after the other until you find the Graal or die.
  • The exploration phase allows you to choose where to go in a procedurally generated map. Would you rather tread a long, calm road or take a shortcut and face potential obstacles?
  • Different events happen according to your location (such as castle, village, and forest) and your previous choices. Will the local lord welcome you? If not, how will you react?
  • And finally, battles will bring fast combat in real-time with a tactical dimension. But be careful not to die, because there is permadeath!

History

The Grail, object of myths and mysteries, can take several forms depending on the traditions, a chalice, a cauldron, or even an emerald, and is coveted by all for its magical powers. But what is it really?
In Graal Seeker, you are an adventurer from the fifth century seeking this relic for fame, fortune, or faith. You can also join Arthur's court in his fight against the Saxons and spread justice throughout the land. But is the recent Saxon invasion related to the presence of the Holy Graal on British soil, or is it merely an excuse for territorial conquest?
From celtic origins to the christian's or esoteric texts, the quest for the Grail is a true initiatory and introspective quest matching with the whole player's game experience. So, it is the player who makes the story!
