The Count Lucanor is an action-adventure with a retro feel that falls halfway between 8-bit and 16-bit styles. Inspired by classic games like The Legend of Zelda, Yume Nikki, Silent Hill and Dark Souls, The Count Lucanor is an amazing mystery and horror adventure set in a fairytale world. The game features important choices, alternative endings, secrets and different ways to solve puzzles.

As if the infected vegetables weren’t enough, the Alien vegeneration ray has also affected the fruit and mushrooms or Earth. Over 20 freshly squeezed organic and unique enemies are eager to taste of your humany flavour… And if, by chance, you manage to survive the unending onslaught of said ripe, ravenous ravagers, the several Epic Boss Fights are sure to put an end to your measly existence. Muahahahahaaa!

To survive you’ll need to build up your character, creating powerful effect combinations by choosing from more than 20 unique Skills, including such game changers as Big Game Hunter, Pulpinator, Akimbo and Tongue of Steel!
