Once upon a time, when people could not yet grasp the laws of nature, they would pray to the Gods for help with the difficulties in their lives. They would offer sacrifices upon the altars when drought arrived and the crop withered under the ruthless sunbeams. They called upon the Gods for help when they suffered from hunger, cold or sickness.
Not much changed during the reign of Duke Radbod. A strange disease attacked his country, quietly and insidiously, killing humans and animals alike.Radbod prayed to great Perkunas and the God heard his prayers. However, instead of help, he sent a dragon.
New and exciting – this game will get your adrenaline racing:
Perkunas’ Dragon is a combination of three game styles. The first style: “Shooter”. Enjoy the classical side scrolling experience with a true bullet hell in some passages. Are you quick enough? The second style: “RPG”. Improve your dragoness characteristics, earn experience and improve your magic skills. Are you a good leader? And finally, the third game style: “Puzzle”. Discover a fantastic world full of magical items and creatures. Use them to clear your way, open portals and destroy enemies. Are you smart enough?
An unknown land:
As you can see Perkunas’ Dragon isn’t an ordinary shooter. In fact the game isn’t strictly divided to levels. There is no first level, second level, etc. principle. You can choose the route where you want to fly. You have to discover a map of the unknown world and look for the right directions. Watching the story line is the key to success.
Magic spells and their combinations:
The game includes sixteen magic spells. Discover them, use them and try to combine them to cause even more damage. The chest of usable magic includes spells such as light storm, huge axe, slow motion, dragon spin but also the classic ones like the fire-ball, bullet fountain, elixir of life and many others. You can improve your dragoness in all ways and this feature makes Perkunas’ Dragon a bloody real “RPG”.
Zithira, Perkunas and Slavonic mythology:
One of the main aspects of this game is the story which is based on Slavonic mythology. We were trying to create a world which was typical for the ancient Central and South Europe with its authentic creatures. Every monster in this game comes from the mythology. In this beautiful and fantastic world you can meet a wide variety of creatures. The big ones such as Ignis Fatuus (Will-o’-the-wisp), dragons, huge bats and eels or the small ones like flies, magic leaves, starlings, lizards and vultures. You will discover wonderful but dangerous locations like the Cannibal Village, a forest full of forest ghosts, a scary ancient cave and many, many others.
Put yourself in the amazing story created by the winner of a prestige fantasy writers’ competition in Slovakia, Marian Kubicsko. Marian created a beautiful world which worksby its own laws and rules. The whole adventure is divided into three parts where the “Lost in an unknown land” is the first one. In this part of the trilogy you will discover the first pieces of this complicated magical world of puzzles and elements. Who is Perkunas? Why am I here? What is this land like? You will be looking for answers to these questions. In order to get the answers, you will have to help people who are suffering from cruel monsters living in this mysterious land.
