Merge Games Ltd. have announced that they are publishing upcoming retro style run-and-gun game Cast Of The Seven Godsends. The game is hitting Steam in July.

Merge Games released the following story details:
“The evil emperor Zaraaima has kidnapped the infant heir to the land of Dareca. King Kandar must call upon the aid of the seven gods of Dareca as he traverses the six worlds of his kingdom in a bid to save his son. He must face the emperor’s hordes as he battles through dark woods, slimy swamps, sinister mills, infernal volcanoes, snowy mountains, golden cities and demonic castles. Each world is guarded by level bosses each sworn to bring about the king’s swift demise. To help him in his quest King Kandar can invoke God-given armour, wield different weapons and cast fanatical spells. Can the King save his son and his kingdom or will Dareca fall into the evil emperor’s grasp?”

You can check out some gameplay in the trailer below:

Game developers Raven Travel Studios have promised the game will have six very long and different worlds to explore, an assortment and weapons and armour to wield, over thirty magic spells and twelve end of level bosses to conquer. It’s packed with content.  Plus a variety of endings will keep you coming back for more.

The game looks great and reminds me of Ghosts And Goblins a LOT. That can only be a good thing – unless it’s also shares it difficulty, which would mean we’re in for a hard time. I’ll take on the challenge though!
