WTF Who names their kid Gunwale?
First-person games these days seem to have one of two presentations — they either feature a gun and gallons of blood, or a person walking peacefully though scenes while picking up objects. It’s easy to see that Elderborn gets its inspiration from the former, but in a twist, it takes the gun out of the equation. Instead, players will pick up a series of melee weapons to fight evil, striking, parrying, and kicking their way through an ancient Egyptian-inspired dungeon while searching for gold along the way.
