Decay of Logos | Development Blog

Immerse yourself in the world of Decay Of Logos and unravel its mysteries. Explore old dungeons, battle unforgiving foes and journey through a vibrant interconnected fantasy realm with your mystical elk companion.

Embark on a journey of revenge and betrayal set in motion by the destruction of our young adventurer's village at the hands of Crimson Knights. Find solace in your mystical elk companion as you battle the unforgiving foes that roam this once peaceful realm. Venture into ancient ruins and dungeons in search of its rewards in a quest to find the truth behind the attack of Ada’s home.

Take heed - there’s a dark and treacherous force at work in this world that corrupts even its inhabitants.


  • Third-person action/adventure RPG with an emphasis on player exploration and minimal hand-holding.
  • Challenging combat with high risk-reward battle system; various short and long-range weapons featuring different move sets, combos, and ancient magic.
  • Elk companion system; strengthen your bond with the mystical elk as you solve environmental puzzles and unravel sinister mysteries.
  • Deep lore and intricate voice-acted narrative that will leave you guessing until the end of your journey through the far-reaching ancestral high-fantasy world of Decay of Logos.


Her village destroyed, she traveled North with her elk companion hoping to find any clues about those who wronged her. You’ll start in the outskirts of the Laetus grove, only to find that all is not what it seems - strange hostile dwellers with wooden bodies and vacant eyes now patrol this land...





Lock-on to enemies for a more tactical approach; parry, dodge and counter-attack while always keeping your stamina in check as you deliver deadly blows and combos. Prepare your battles ahead by using the Elk secondary inventory to store a variety of short and long range weapons, defense gear, and potions.






Set in a far-reaching and interconnected semi-open world, you’ll explore a divided kingdom once ruled by a warring King. Tragedy struck when his beloved Queen died during childbirth - the royal family was irreversibly broken and the King’s sons drifted apart, each claiming a piece of the realm. Make your way through the lush woodland, the great howling rift, degraded swamps, ancestral grounds and many other unique locations.




You’ll travel alone with your companion, facing off the likes of giants and many other mystical foes while clearing the path by solving ancestral environmental puzzles. With a will of its own, and more than a mount, you must strengthen your bond by petting and feeding the elk before you can ride it. Ada will come across several charismatic NPC's along the way; fully voice acted, they're a good source of lore, guidance and items.




Decay of Logos invites player exploration with minimal hand-holding by using a minimalistic interface while relying on environmental cues and dialogue for guidance. Ada even displays all gear and items on her while animations reflect her physical state. Leveling is fully automated and based on your play style, Ada gains stats when you kill an enemy, activates a mechanism or even when finding a secret chest.

Looks so well done as always, been following them for years. Can't wait to play. The HUD is kind of crappy, I was so used to the hudless gameplay. But that's minor, the systems and visuals and atmosphere seem so spot on for the game. Also not sure about the leveling, hidden as it may be. I'd have expected them to make it easier on themselves (especially if it's shorter than the high budget games of the style so players wouldn't easily miss the features) and forgo having such improvement systems at all, focusing on preset gear upgrades they can balance with the coming challenges, but I have no reason to doubt them either.

Young female warrior seeking revenge for her destroyed village? Destroyed at the hands of a great evil? Mythical companion with their own personality who is more than a simple mount? action rpg with magic and melee/ranged combat?
Yes I will take this game that reminds me greatly of Drakan, thank you!

Bought.

Edit: found a review:
Pros
+Challenging

Cons
-Technically flawed
-Your Elk companion is too stupid to follow simple instructions
-Not fun to play (regardless of the numerous bugs)

PS: I also tried the game with the day one patch.

So I've played for 90 minutes. I honestly don't agree with the technically flawed and not fun to play parts. It runs beautifully on my PC, maxed at 1440p. And judging from the presentation, gameplay, and combat system, it's pretty much a Souls-like.

It has the potential, so I'm gonna keep the game.
