Niche Spotlight – Osteoblasts


Today’s Niche Spotlight is Osteoblasts, a retro-inspired RPG by Moonana.

You play as a spooky scary skeleton resurrected by a powerful cat witch to fight the evil dog menace. Choose your class, and set out for adventure in a world populated by undead creatures and dangerous monsters. While some may aid you, people tend to not trust the undead.

Upgrade your skeleton adventurer with a variety of randomized loot, skills, and special abilities. Class-specific quests and a mutating world ensure that players have reasons to come back even after completing their quest.

You can find the launch trailer below.

Osteoblasts is available on Windows PC via Steam for $7.99 USD.

You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:
