Tower of Samsara is a pixel art adventure game

Its a journey which the player will seek spiritual ascension

Facebook | Twitter | Webpage








   







Tower of Samsara is a transfiguration.

The player, longing for interior peace,

will undergo demanding challenges

that will ceaselessly test

his ascent toward Nirvana.













This epic journey will lead

to different planets

each being a representation

of a karmic state of the being

thus moving from infernal worlds

such as The Realm of Matter

to worlds that are closer to the divine

until reach of imperturbable awareness.



   









   





In these worlds there will be uncountable

obstacles and envious entities that will

try to steal your inner light.

Every obstacle we face in our journey

represents an opportunity

to overcome ourselves and our limits

understanding good and evil

two sides of the same coin

just like yin and yang.

Once the correct path is clear

the player will increase his karma

letting him continue his ascent.


   





On the journey, the player shall meet wise deities who will give spiritual help

so that he may find the necessary strength to carry on his epic journey.













The game features detailed high-res pixel art graphics,
with immersive ambients, a lot of particles and 2D dynamic lightning.



  • BE the character and live an epic adventure - Full movement platform-fight adventure
  • EXPLORE planets of the solar system - Enormous hand-made scenarios
  • FIGHT dozens of enemies and gigantic bosses
  • FIND relics embedded with good karma - Hidden & Puzzles
  • SHARE your poetry with other players - Similar to Demon Souls, share a haiku with players that pass through the same spot

Amazing level of detail in the ice cave screenshots, it's beautiful Gentleman! Also really love the story, really inspirational! I like to make a game about Taoism & the Illusion of the Self, but so far I'm struggling translating the idea into meaningful mechanics/story ^^. Anyway, following!

Your game looks great!

Let me know if you need trailers or other promotional videos for it, I'm a freelancer audio/video editor (and voice actor if you need it) and I work extremely quickly and at a fair price.

curious about this mechanism.  How are you going to handle players who abuse the system by using profanities?

Yeah, I was going to ask the same thing. Maybe the game will have a pre established variety of words/phrases to choose from. The player would create the poems by combining the available words/phrases.

Hello, thanks for the question.

We will in fact make a word blacklist filter. The message who contains improper words will have a different animation where its hatred destroys itself. It won't hold.

This is how a normal message looks:


A message with profanities will became torn and won't be sent to the server for other players to see. I'll later post how it shall look.

This looks beautiful. Is it completely 2D? It really looks like lo-poly 3D sometimes!
