Too many WW2 games? Try L’Abbaye des Morts!

September 29, 2010

I wrote a post recently looking at the issue of how many games are set in the same few historical settings.  My point is that there is so much interesting history that can be used as an inspiration that just using a tiny handful of wars is a bit of a shame.

So imagine my delight to see this:

Locomalito and his companion Gryzor87 have released L’Abbaye des Morts (download mirror), a Jet Set Willy-inspired platformer based on the persecution of the Cathars by the Catholic Church (read the Wikipedia entry – it’s pretty horrible stuff). Despite being labeled “a minor game” by its creator, L’Abbaye is well-made and very fun, with great challenge and lots of secrets packed into a small package. The limited graphics and audio actually do a lot to bolster the creepiness of the game’s occult theme.

Cool. v. cool.
