The Hunter of Falkenberg was created by SLEIPNIR DREAMWARE for the Itch Retro Jam 2021.
In this shortgame you play as Sigurd von Falkenberg, a hunter, well versed in killing monsters of all kind. But you are no hero. Hunters only work for coin and are rarely welcome anywhere. Their secret occult techniques allow them to absorb monster abilities and so they are feared and hated by most of their customers, who see them as degenerated abominations. Only the steady demand of Sigurds proficient skills in combat and magical-annihilation stands between him and the ever daunting threat of becoming an outlaw.
Accompanied by his apprentice Lilly, a young , very talented and sometimes rather cocky, Hunter aspirant, they travel into the haunted Blackswamp to save the dwellers of the village Usdir from an ancient evil…
and empty their pockets.
The Hunter of Falkenberg was developed to comply to the technical limitations of the retro gaming console XBOX.
