Hardcore Roguelike on the Evil Side !


Just another game where you'll play the bad guy 😉

Admit it… There are so many games where you have to confront and defeat the forces of Evil, that when you have the choice to take the other side of the coin… You take it ! Actually the scenario of Iratus is very similar, though different in its approach and design, to another independant game unknown to many called Paper Sorcerer. In Iratus you're a necromancer trying to break free of the Tomb where the forces of good have jailed you, and in Paper Sorcerer you're an evil sorcerer trying to break free of a Magic Book.

So in Paper sorcerer your team was composed of all sorts of magical and evil creatures, and in Iratus your minions are mainly composed of… Undeads ! Of course you're a Necromancer after all -_- But the comparison ends there, as Iratus core of game directly descends from Darkest Dungeon which is a hardcore roguelike experience ! If you don't know the definition of roguelike, it's because it's based on a very old game (nearly as old as me !) called Rogue, which was one of the very first dungeon crawlers where the goal was to…

  1. Explore a room
  2. Kill the monsters
  3. Loot the treasure
  4. Repeat step 1 ^_^

And when it's about a hardcore experience, it means the game will be hard… very hard ! At least for those who are not into the genre, they might find the difficulty a little (too much) overwhelming, because one mistake will usually mean the game will literally PUNISH You ! So if you're a Fan of Animal Crossing, you're definitely on the wrong page 😛

Here are some screenshots below (just click to enlarge)

Iratus Lord of the Dead Guide

  • It took me around 45 hours to finish the game
  • In “Good Always Wins” i was becoming far too powerful in the end
  • I also never used the “One time Used” artefacts that could boost my powers before one fight

So even if the very last battle was a little tricky, i think i should have chosen the “Eternal Harvest 1“, this way i would have been forced to use more “artefacts” and maybe to lose some units from time to time… Because the only time i lost 1 unit – and it was at the very end of the battle – was the very last battle of the game itself 😉 But apart from that i never ever lost one unit…

So now it's up to you, are you going to start with Eternal Harvest 1 ? I certainly recommend you to do so… But just understand that the first levels we be hard, even very hard ! The difficulty will start to soften after you got your first useful talents.
