Crumbling World developer Dume Arts is delighted to announce a release date for their game, alongside a brand-new beta demo, giving players a chance to dive into a rich fantasy location and experience the unique gameplay elements featured within.
The dark-fantasy Action-RPG will launch on PC via Steam on May 21st. To celebrate, and to give players a teaser of what’s to come, Dume Arts has crafted an open beta demo, which is available now via Gamejolt, alongside the new announcement trailer.
Set in a sinister, slowly decomposing land where humanity has been driven to corruption, aligning with dark forces for survival, players must traverse gorgeous diorama-like levels in an attempt to bring back the age of light – before the world crumbles away entirely beneath their feet.
In the beta demo, players will experience a number of the procedurally-generated opening stages of the game and take control of Mathos, the Knight – one of the five classes which will be available when the game launches in May. [Continues below]
This beta demo has been crafted to provide a taste of the world and the intense real-time combat that players will utilize on their journey to restore light to the land.
The updated beta demo also showcases the addition of the “crumbling” mechanic whereby the corrupted world will literally fall apart beneath the character’s feet. Players will need to plan their steps, lest they fall into the twisted Underworld beneath the game’s levels.
Crumbling World will launch on Steam on May 21st with a full story mode, 7 playable characters across 5 different classes and 25 procedurally-generated stages, meaning no two playthroughs will ever be the same.
