Courier of the Crypts (Early Access)
A downloadable game for Windows
Courier of the Crypts is a 2D action adventure game where you have to survive as a courier on his first errand to the guardian of the crypts. Your main tool to achieve your mission is a magic torch which you use to illuminate your path, defend from evil spirits and solve puzzles.
I've been developing Courier of the Crypts in my free time for a while now. Since I'm the solo developer on the project apart from the composer, things takes time and money. With Early Access I want to put more time in the development of the game and less time into freelancing. With your help through suggestions and bug reports I will work through until the game is finished.
What is the current state of the Early Access version?
"Current version contains:
- 3 Storyline maps
- First 6 gameplay maps
- Profile system
- Map perfection system
- Full controller support
- Arachnophobic filter (if you're afraid of spiders)
- Achievements (Steam only)
You can already spend quite some time in the game, especially if you're after all the secrets and relics."
How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
"The game is featuring somewhat linear story progression through the crypt maps and for that I'll be releasing new maps in order. To cut it short, Early Access will mainly lack in map content which will be released through the free updates regulary.
Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
"The price will increase when the game is fully released."
Full release features:
- Ambiental and carefully hand-crafted maps full of puzzles and secrets.
- Magic torch - light your path, scare off the enemies, solve puzzles....
- Deadly traps and rich treasures
- Simple yet appealing story with a twist.
- Beautiful pixelated graphics.
- Music and visuals for perfect ominous ambient.
- Crypt map with secret maps to unlock (similar to Super Mario World world map)
- Meet the spirits and buy some upgrades.
- Perfection system.
- Challenging achievements.
- Full controller support.

Content Update #3 (July 24th, 2015)
Crypt passages led Courier from the Jail Cells to the Crypt Library. Do you have what it takes to find a way through the enchanted labyrinth?
Enchanted Library - A dark place where terrible things happened in the past. You'll learn a bit more about the hidden cult while trying to get out of this new map. There are also new secrets waiting to be found.
Magic Seeds - without a map, it is hard to navigate through the crypt complex like that. Secret brotherhood created something simple yet effective to solve that problem. Use it to mark your way.
New achievements - 2 more steam achievements added.
Changes & Bug fixes
Journey Begins achievement can be achieved now.
This update should include the first secret map of the game but it wasn't ready for the release so I postponed it to the next week.
I'll release a small content update next week with a secret map, few bug fixes and improvements. That will give you some hard time finding the secret ending in one of the 6 maps.
After the next small update Courier will move to the Crypt Cathedrale.
