Akupara Games announced this week they will be releasing the creepy narrative adventure game Cryptmaster on Steam. Developed by Paul Hart and Lee Williams, this is an artistic dungeon adventure where words control everything.

They also hold the keys to solving strange quests, and challenging demons in unexpected mini-games. The game doesn’t have a release date yet, but you can check out the latest trailer below.
Cryptmaster is a narrative adventure with a nostalgic visual style about a party of recently awakened dead heroes. An eccentric figure, known only as the Cryptmaster, tasks you to journey upwards through the strata of several fantastic underground kingdoms. Along the way meet a myriad of quirky characters, find cryptic puzzles, and combat classic enemies all by typing out your actions! An irreverent quick-witted adventure, Cryptmaster arms players with the freedom of exploration and approach to every situation.
