I'm almost in complete disbelief as I've only just been contacted by Chris94 about a brand new dungeon crawler called ' The Shadows of Sergoth ', that is not only a homebrew game, but it's a first person grid based dungeon crawler and made for the Amstrad CPC 6128. Now you may wonder as to why I'm in shock, that's because these types of games as a homebrew are a rarity on the Amstrad (it's mainly platformers and shooters), but from the footage below it looks very impressive indeed!

Wow! Reminds me a bit of "Hired Guns" on the Amiga.
Very nice, very smooth, awesome graphics and music too.

Wow, this is very good. I didn't expect such game to appear on CPC. I'm glad to see the return of Chris, which left the CPC after the demise of the sequel of "CPC Aventure".

I just saw it on the cpc-power front page, and it's an amazing demo indeed! The movement was super fast, and maybe a bit too much: I had trouble to understand where the player was going because the screens changed so quickly lol. Slower, smoother transitions could be nice (maybe an option? I'm sure after spending 10 hours in the game I'd wish for faster movement lol)

The auto-map is very welcome. It helps a lot understanding where the player is and doesn't beak the immersion. I can only hope a full map will be available at the press of a button too.

It's a WIP obviously, but I know the pick-up option placement will be super irritating for me: seeing the player having to move the cursor over the whole inventory each time they need to pick something up triggered me lol. Simply swapping the boots and the pick-up spots would greatly alleviate it.

But yeah, super impressed by the work done, I didn't know it was possible on a CPC.
