Description

Ruggnar is a platformer without enemies, but many traps are hidden in the darkness. Help Ruggnar explore gloomy places with his bag and a few candles as his sole equipment.

History

Ruggnar is the first title of Sword N' Wands. Cyrille made a previous game for Android called DualRUN.

Features

  • Use your candles to orient yourself, throw them to see further, or to trigger mechanisms.
  • Explore every nook and cranny with fluid controls.
  • Personalize your dwarf by collecting artifacts and cosmetics.
  • No enemies, but lots of traps and some bosses that will make your moustache grow back.
  • Hand-forged story mode and procedural generation to prolong the experience.
  • Ruggnar is gruff and you can hear it! Pierre-Alain de Garrigues AKA PADG (the voice of the Innkeeper and many other video game characters) for the french voice and Jordan Harrelson (My Time at Portia, Edge of Eternity) for the english voice, lend him their talents for swearing louder and louder!
