What Lies Beneath: hotfix

Hey everyone !
I discovered a very nasty bug that prevent all of you to go further after you defeat the lich.
I worked on a hotfix and on some other changes: item stacking in the inventory, rebuild of the archery system,...
I'm uploading all the updated versions, it will probably take a while.
Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience.

[Edit: Apparently it only occurs if you click on the stairs in the crypt, near the lich boss. Avoid clicking on it if you play before the patch is released.]

What Lies Beneath: The release date

Hey everyone !

This time I finally have a true release date for my little game: What Lies Beneath.

Again, I'm really sorry for all the "issues" I got (I didn't think it takes so much time to release a game, so it's totally my fault to tell you too soon :S)

But it's okay now. Still a very big week and you''l be able to wander in the Namok's dungeon.

You can already pre-order the game if it's your thing.

Don't hesitate to tell your friends about it !

And if you read all this and still have no idea of what SotM: What Lies Beneath is about, you'd better check out this trailer^^ :

See you next time ! Thanks for reading.

What Lies Beneath: soon...

Hey everyone !

I'm sure you're getting sick of reading that over and over again but the game will be released very soon, I promise.

I uploaded everything, I set a price and, well... everything is okay on my side I think. We'll just have to wait for Desura to make it available (a big thanks to them by the way, they really helped me a lot with the process of putting the game online).

Well... I'm happy for you and I'll let you finish... but, you said you set a price ?!

Yeah, unfortunately that's one thing that didn't go as intended, at all. The Pay What You Want formula isn't supported by Desura (someone on Reddit told me it was but apparently he was mistaken). PYW is not so perfect because of all the fees that come with payment (Paypal, credit cards,...). I guess the world isn't totally ready to use that awesome system for everything...

So I set the price at the minimum possible (1.99 euros) and it should be 2.49 dollars, more or less depending on where you live.

For the price of two beers you''l get the game and its OST ;)

I'm planning to make What Lies Beneath available in bundles to make the game affordable by as many people as possible.

And that's all for today, I'm heading to bed now, good day/night !

What Lies Beneath: Quick update on the situation and the trailer

Hey everyone !

I kinda fixed my connection issues (actually not at all, I made my uploads from another one :S) and could update the game. And.... surprise ! I even made a trailer for it.

With a working build and a video showing the game put online I was finally able to engage the discussion with Desura (I should probably have done that sooner, will keep that in mind for my next game release^^').

So the only thing to do now is to wait. You'll be able to play the game pretty soon I hope.

Oh ! As you can see I also made myself a logo. For those who are not familiar with Song of the Myrne (the big one, not WLB) this animal is called a boarlion.

Let me know what you think of that trailer and, if you like it, don't hesitate to share. It helps a lot.

Bye !

Song of the Myrne: Introducing What Lies Beneath

Hello everyone !

Here, you'll find all informations concerning Song of the Myrne: What Lies Beneath.

Yeah, thanks but we're aware of the SotM thing.

Well, not really. What Lies Beneath (let's call it WLB from here) isn't really Song of the Myrne. It's a little adventure for you to enjoy while you wait for Song of the Myrne to be released.

Here's a short video to show you what SotM: What Lies Beneath is about :

And here's random facts about this game :

  • It's more "adventure" and less "RPG" than SotM
Basically, the two games are the same but WLB contains less dialogs and more action. Also, it's a very linear game.

But there's of course some new content like a new character with a new story, unique environments, bosses, etc...

  • It's a short but full game
Unless the demo of SotM, What Lies Beneath is a full game, their's a beginning and an end. Also it doesn't requires Song of the Myrne to run.

I made the musics myself for this game, using Magix Music Maker. You get the OST with the game for no extra charge.

Here's a foretaste =)

Why do you need money exactly ?
To eat, pay some licences and continue to make games ;)

There isn't any demo of the game ?
Yes there is ! You can download the latest demo of the game here:

What Lies Beneath is available on Desura and IndieGameStand (DRM-free + Desura key) :

Some reviews, Let's Play, etc...
