Malevolence: The Sword of Ahkranox is an indie game development project founded out of Brisbane, Australia and is involving nearly 30 people from all over the world. The aim is to recreate the amazing turn-based, first person RPGs from the golden age of PC gaming using modern game engine technology and it’s pretty clear that the game is influenced by Might & Magic series and Eye of the Beholder.
Although the team has stated that the game will be released on December 2012, a playable demo will be made available this Christmas.
Here is also the official trailer and some screenshots of it. As you can see, it looks dated for today’s standards but has something that most modern-day games lack; it has style and that old-school goode atmosphere.
