Dolmen is an odd mix of genres and gameplay mechanics. This SoulsBorne-inspired sci-fi action RPG takes up what Lovecraft wrote about in his magnum opus and runs with it to the extreme. At least, that's what the devs claim it to be.
In practice, there is yet some time to go before we get the chance to play Dolmen, as the first of its six narrative-heavy chapters is released. Good news, though, as the devs have had Chapter 1 successfully funded via Kickstarter, with $20,272 of $15,000 collected.
Going over the funding goal of $15,000 has allowed the developers to fulfil Dolmen's first stretch goal, which consists of two additional weapons available by the time the game is fully released. These look as if they are sourced from Dead Space and Dark Souls each, so the developers are certainly true to their inspiration so far.
While there is no word yet on when might the first chapter of Dolmen get released, developers have showcased a new gameplay trailer, as well as revealing their hopes of introducing lots of additional features over the coming Chapters.
These include more enemies, a hardcore mode, an area dedicated to survival gameplay, lore expansion, a compendium, new customisation options, and more. In any case, if you're interested in this type of game and don't mind a bit of jank, be sure to keep a close eye on Dolmen.
