Decay of Logos is an immersive action/adventure third-person RPG influenced by Nordic folklore and by J. R. R. Tolkien’s high fantasy.The gameplay is heavily inspired by Dark Souls and The Legend of Zelda, with focus on exploration, combat and resource management. It draws its visual inspiration from movies like Princess Mononoke and games like Shadow of the Colossus. You play as a girl on a journey with her companion, a mystical Elk. They fatefully meet after her village is destroyed by one of the King’s sons. Battered and oblivious of the culprit behind the attack, the girl will not rest until she has her revenge. During her quest she will unveil secrets about the King and his sons, slowly realizing that all is not what it seems.
The game is set in an expansive high-fantasy world where the player coexists with the likes of kings, knights, wizards, ancient species and various other mythical creatures. In Decay of Logos, you will journey through an ancient kingdom ruled by a warring King. The King wasn’t a very affectionate father, preferring to pay attention to the military affairs of his Kingdom than to any of his five sons.
Much to the King’s dismay, tragedy struck when the Queen died during childbirth. With his dear wife gone, he sought only to protect his newborn daughter, the only Princess in the Realm. The distance between the King and his sons grew even more, since he only had eyes for the little Princess who looked just like her mother.
As time passed, the King’s sons felt abandoned, without any acknowledgement from their father. They all shared a deep hatred for their sister since, in their opinion, she was to blame for their mother’s death. Their hatred was only matched by their thirst for power, and it was only a matter of time before tragedy would strike again.
And as it did, the Royal Family was irreversibly broken. After this great Divide, the Princes drifted apart, all claiming a piece of the Realm. During the following years, the King’s Sons heavily influenced the lands they owned, each territory reflecting their particular idiosyncrasies. There wasn’t much contact between them – all the Princes became completely obsessed with their personal endeavors and struggles.
The Adventure Begins
The protagonist of our story is forced into a journey of revenge after her Village gets destroyed. Beat down and without knowing who was responsible for the attack, the Girl aimlessly wandered through the woods until she collapsed. She woke to the soft pull of a mystical Elk, feeling an overwhelming sense of calm and safety. There was no reasonable explanation for it, but the Girl felt somehow connected to the creature, their bond being as strong as the will to avenge her fellow villagers. Other than a royal crest she faintly remembered seeing on the banners of the attackers, there wasn’t any indication of where they might have come from. She ventured North hoping to find any clues regarding those who had wronged her.
The player starts on the outskirts of the Forgotten Forest, only to find that all is not what it seems. Strange creatures roam the old Ancestor ruins, a once peaceful land is now filled with hostile dwellers with wooden bodies and vacant eyes…
