The Weaponographist

Entrant 2016



The Weaponographist is a high-speed, dungeon-crawling arena combat game. You play as Doug McGrave, famous demon hunter for hire. Highest level, bestest gear, ruggedly handsome... and unrepentant jerk. For refusing to help a town plagued by demons, you are immediately - and deservedly - cursed. Your powers and your weapons – gone. To overcome the curse, you'll need to clear a dungeon using whatever weapons you can find. Swords, spears, pogo-sticks, yo-yos, tubas... Quickly adapt from one to the next as they constantly fall apart in your hands.

The faster you go, the stronger you'll get. Fill up your combo meter by defeating evil and weaken the curse while you can. But, whenever you aren't attacking, your combo will quickly drain away, and the curse will take its toll. You may even lose the precious levels you've gained. Only by killing monsters quickly, adapting to new weapons, and removing the curse in pieces can Doug save the day and get the heck out of this damned one-horse town.
