Game Information

Available on:PCMar 2, 2018

Developer: Scarecrow Arts

Publisher: KISS Ltd.

Genre: Action

Drop into the unfinished storybook of a crazed author, on the brink of being discarded forever. Discover what it means to become a hero worth writing about.

“The Story Goes On” is a different take on the hack’n’slash genre: combining elements of permadeath, random world generation, dozens of unique items and an overarching story.

Every item is designed to shift the way you play: from standard buffs to combat enhancements to new ways of traversing puzzles, items are made to work together and grant the player cool item combinations every time they play.

By progressing further and completing dungeons, the story introduces new bosses to defeat, tougher enemies to fight and more complex environments to conquer.

Within each randomly generated world is a matching pre-existing dungeon that introduces new mechanics, enemies and story elements into the main game.

20+ bosses to defeat, dozens of enemies to grind out for gold, the works.

Our original soundtrack adapts during gameplay to match the pace of battle.

All-in-all The Story Goes On is a solid game. What it does, it does well. The visuals are pleasing and varying enough not to get boring. Boss fights require strategy and perma-death means that you take caution whilst battling through the dungeons.

The Story Goes On is one of the most interesting roguelikes that I've played in a while due to its incredibly clever secrets and satisfying gameplay.

Seeing past that though, and it is most certainly an addictive little well paced game – but only really for those who wish to go cheevo hunting in the process.
