FranknJohn – Lose your head in this indie title

by October 1st, 2013

Eurogamer Expo 2013 was a great experience this year, one I will write more about over the week. However, one game that really made me chuckle was FranknJohn. This is an indie game from bitSmith Games, described as a self decapitating roguelike. I had a chance to be shown the game by game designer Owen Harris. I just wanted to share a little bit from their press pack as I feel it is a game that deserves mention!

Summary

FranknJohn is a Roguelike Action Game that will make you lose your head. Literally. Launch your head as a weapon and experiment with unique Skullcaps to overcome deadly challenges.

You play as FranknJohn, a failed experiment on a journey to uncover the truth of his existence.
Awakening in the basement furnace of Dr.Harmins crazy manor, you must battle your way up through his deranged fun-house filled with unspeakable horrors.

Features

  • Unique Gameplay – Launch FranknJohns head as a weapon or smash it through walls to access secret areas
  • Dynamic Combat – Change Skullcaps to alter FranknJohns attacks and attach Patches to modify stats
  • Random Generation – Levels are randomly-generated with tonnes of collectables and secrets to find and unlock
  • Co-Op – Bring a friend along for the ride, two heads are better than one!
  • 3D Verticality – The perspective reveals rooms in the distance and deep below, enticing players to explore
  • Player Choice – Choosing to save or kill bosses will change the games outcome
