A downloadable game for Windows

An ancient evil has descended upon your peaceful country, and it's been over a week since the last dawn you saw. So gather your equipment, and head alone into the stormy night. Destroy The Darkness that awaits for you under the old graveyard, or the light will be gone forever.

Use the arrow keys to move around, Ctrl to fire the crossbow and Shift to swing you sword.
