Unepic (Wii U eShop)

Game Profile

Unepic is a mixture of platform game, role game and joke that takes place in a huge castle of medieval fantasy.

The hero is called Daniel, a normal guy: great videogame player, big lover of sci-fi movies, novice player of role games, pot-head and overall, a bit horny due to a mysterious lack of success with girls. In the middle of a role game he is teleported to a castle and he thinks that he is having a massive drug-based hallucination. He decides to run his own adventure until the effect of the drug wears off.

In the castle, he will be possessed by a shadow, however this shadow cannot control him (being able only talk). The only way the shadow can escape from the Hero’s body is by the death of the Hero, so the shadow will lie all the time giving false clues, always looking for the Daniel’s death.

In the castle he will visit an oracle and find out the goal of the story: to kill Harnakon, the master of the castle, and free Pure-Spirits. This story sounds typical for a role game, but during the adventure Daniel will discover that everything is not what it seems.

This game looks quite intriguing, so I'm surprised that there seems to be little interest in this upcoming title.
