Indie studio RunAroundGames today dropped announcement details about its upcoming early access title 7 Bones and 7 Stones – The Ritual. The asymmetrical 4v1 multiplayer game is headed for Kickstarter in mid-November.
Set in an East European stylized medieval fantasy realm called Vayandor, 7 Bones and 7 Stones – The Ritual takes players on a multiplayer action RPG journey. One player takes on the role of a powerful monster that is hunting the other 4 players who are acting as villagers.
These four players must survive and perform an ancient ritual to stop the monster. The monster of course is going to do everything such as using his unique trait and special abilities to hunt down the villagers in the forest as they search for the ancient ritual stones.
Each match is action packed with unique and fun gameplay moments and experiences. Players can choose either MOBA like controls by playing as the monster or play as a team of villagers in a more of a cooperative and survival like experience.
Performance in matches will dictate how many experience points one will earn. These points are used to buy gameplay boosters in the character inventory menu. Players can also customize their looks giving that personal touch for each match played.
RunAroundGames is currently seeking volunteers to join their weekly play sessions on their Discord (https://discord.gg/S7fZNNG) server. The first 100 volunteers will receive a free Steam key and an in game reward once the game enters early access.
The game is planned for a PC launch on Steam and was built using the Unreal Engine. In the 7 Bones and 7 Stones announcement also came that a Nintendo Switch release is planned as a future console release.
7 Bones and 7 Stones – The Ritual launches its Kickstarter campaign on November 12, 2019. The game is expected to enter into Closed Beta on January 5, 2020 with all campaign backers and play session volunteers receiving Closed Beta invites. Players can add the game to their wishlist now on Steam.
