It's here. After years in development, Elden: Path of the Forgotten is now available on Steam and on the Nintendo Switch store!

Elden: Path of the Forgotten is a medieval RPG with roots in eldritch horror. Elden explores storytelling through non-traditional, indirect methods — like reading an illustrated book in a language you don’t understand. The combat is based on reaction, not action, you need to manage your stamina and position while waiting for the perfect time to strike or alternatively master the art of parries. Visually inspired by classic 16 and 8 bit games, Elden: Path of the Forgotten is a stunning, encapsulating, dark world waiting to be explored.

Check out our latest Release Announcement Trailer here, which we had the pleasure of editing the atmosphere for.

Elden is published by Another Indie, and joins their catalogue of titles including Lost CastleYuppie Psycho, and SINNER: Sacrifice for Redemption.

We've been working with Onerat Games for some time now as this Melbourne-based developer puts together their debut title in the form of a retro-inspired medieval RPG. Elden: PotF is full of classic Lovecraftian cosmic horror themes, 16-bit visuals, and a dense, brooding soundtrack. It is not one to miss.

In addition to putting the final sonic touches on the trailers and cutscenes, you can also hear some of our work scattered around the world in Elden during gameplay. This is another deeply fleshed-out title that draws you in and is best experienced with headphones.

We connected with Dylan J Walker early on during the game's development, and have seen it grow over the last few years. Shortly after Elden was picked up by publisher Another Indie, we had the pleasure of editing & mixing the sound for the game's Announcement Trailer. Check it out here.

Elden is already getting positive coverage and reviews.

"The story unfolds through the environment, and I instead found myself taking story cues from the buildings, monsters, and scenery that I encountered. This, together with the ghostly soundtrack and the visually stunning world the game is set in, makes for a strange but engrossing gaming experience."

"Walker has created a world that’s equally as eerie as it is enchanting, and the game goes a lot deeper than its combat system. With its fascinating world, great use of non-verbal storytelling and immersive soundtrack, Elden: Path of the Forgotten is one indie gem that shouldn’t be missed by anyone with a soft spot for fantasy and pixel graphics."
