Castle Come – Announcement Trailer

Walking Fortress Roguelike Castle Come Unveiled For PC & Console
Defeat enemy fortress and scavenge the wreckage to grow from an agile fortling into a hulking, monster machine

Zurich, Switzerland – July 1st 2024 – lauflauf are pleased to unveil their walking fortress roguelike for PC and console, Castle Come, via a debut announcement trailer. In Castle Come, you scout a strange land full of bandits in search of new parts, defeat enemy fortresses and scavenge the wreckage, recruit crew to man your growing arsenal of weapons and build your way from an agile little fortling into a deadly, hulking, monster machine.

In combat, Castle Come switches to a Tekken-inspired 2.5D fighting view where you can make use of sidesteps, dodges and rams. Take advantage of a stylish time-slowing feature that kicks in whenever you line up a shot from one of your arsenal of weapons – from machine guns and mine launchers, to chicken pens and giant boulders. Take control of every weapon yourself, or leave your crew to fire at will as you juggle active reloads, cooldowns and movement in the search for maximum efficiency on the battlefield. 

In Castle Come, you are born into a world enclosed by mighty walls, with a mysterious gate shrouded in legend offering the only way out, following the path walked by the  holy one that crossed the gates. In each zone the gates are sentient, letting only the mightiest mecha-castle through. Progress through gates to explore and gather resources, discover forges, villages and tribes and ultimately uncover the mystery of who built these gates and why you’ve been trapped behind them.

Thanks to the game’s roguelike structure, the wreck of your old fortress in your previous failed run can be discovered as an overgrown ruin with parts to pickover as you take on the hopes of the next generation, or a house you protected might have grown into a flourishing village.  The impact of your past actions are always felt in the future, even if you failed. Discover new weapons and modifiers with each run that change how you play as you seek to construct an unstoppable fortress.    

“Our tiny two-person team is really excited to be able to announce Castle Come to the world with our first trailer,” said Sam Vonäsch, producer and designer. “We’re looking forward to being able to share more about the game’s mechanics, our special take on narration and when it will be releasing, in the future.”
