Developer stellarNull has announced Anuchard, a 2D action RPG for Windows PC systems, where players will take on the role of a Bellwielder, a seeker of lost souls set on rebuilding the fallen civilisation of the title’s namesake: Anuchard. Anuchard itself is inspired by the former release library of Quintet, a developer known for cult classics such as Terranigma, Soul Blazer, and ActRaiser. Check out a gameplay trailer, showcasing stylish combat and plot aplenty, below!
Anuchard focuses on a story of saving souls, where players will be able to retrieve souls of different occupations through their playthrough and bring them back to existence. This, in turn, will improve the Bellwielder’s settlement and give them access to different combat buffs. Within combat, players will have access to the Audros Bell, a weapon that will knock enemies and objects alike, as seen briefly above. The Audros Bell will also give players the key, via its knockback mechanic, to solve puzzles within handcrafted dungeons. Anuchard will also include cooking mechanics, where players can mix and match different ingredients to discover recipes that will give the Bellwielder different abilities that can be suited towards favoured play styles.
