Evil power-fantasy begins as Nekro is released on Steam

The Kickstarter action-RPG project from DarkForge Games is now available for PC, Mac, and Linux on Steam.

We enjoyed our time with the preview build of Nekro back in March, and now the full version of the game is available for everyone over on Steam. Initially a Kickstarter project, Nekro was fully fund in May 2012, and also Greenlit over on Steam Greenlight. Since then, the developers have been working hard to finish and finally release the game.

With games industry veterans hailing from big companies such as Microsoft, Blizzard, and Sony, Nekro stepped off on the right foot straight away. The game’s mechanics centre around top-down randomly generated levels, and employs action-RPG gameplay.

You take control of an alchemist-turned necromancer, who is hell-bent on revenge against a corrupt King that betrayed him. As a necromancer you will wield demonic creatures and command them to do your bidding, sweeping through the landscape and slaughtering enemies that get in your way.

Have a look at the trailer for the game below, and keep an eye out for our thoughts on the latest version this month.

Nekro is available for PC, Mac, and Linux users over on Steam Early Access, and is discounted by 25% for its first week.
