’90s-Inspired First-Person Slasher Lichenvale Announced


Filip Zemljak has announced Lichenvale, a first-person hack and slash inspired by ’90s shooters like Quake and Hexen.

You play as a young woman trapped in her own nightmares. Use a mixture of melee weapons and powerful spells as you fight your way through 10 labyrinthian levels.

Lichenvale will also have a New Game+ mode. You can find an announcement trailer below.

You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:


There are dreams and there are nightmares. There is death and there are swords and spells to stove it off. What will you do when dark specters come for you tonight? Players find themselves in the role of a young woman bothered by covid19-stress induced nightmares. Can you find your way through the labyrinths of darkness, or will you be trapped forever?

Inspired by 90’s hits like Hexen and Quake, Lichenvale is a first person hack and slash offering: fast-paced melee action mixed with the tactical use of spells and dashing around your enemies. This singleplayer title will feature a story mod with up to 10 maps full of various progressively difficult mobs, regional and main bosses, as well as some light puzzling. Those seeking an adventure are awaited in the New Game+ mode.

Lichenvale is coming soon to Windows PC via Steam.
