The Cork: Book 1


Indie Game: The Cork: Book 1

The Cork is a 2D Action-RPG set in a world that draws inspiration from classic Metroidvania platformers (with a heavy emphasis on vania) and the deliberate, challenging combat of Souls-likes.

Players take on the role of Salem Cairnwright, who after several months abroad finds his home devastated by a mysterious plague - its villagers erratic and hostile. The landscape beyond the village has changed, revealing an impossibly high wall towering above the forest. Finding a path into the forgotten kingdom beyond the wall, you strike out to learn the truth behind its sudden appearance, mysterious fall and to uncover the source of the illness plaguing your small village.
