The Spirit is an Action Role-Playing game rogue like with elements of old school dungeon crawlers.
Our protagonist wakes up in a strange world looking for answers. He learns that he has died and returned to the realm as a spirit. The only way he can find his way back to the living is to find the Rift Keeper. He soon learns that the world is being overrun by creatures and demons entering through the Rift. The people of the realm need him, but so does his family.
One thing that I tried to focus on was to have NPC characters explain or tell little bits of the story. So, even though it is not necessary always for completing a level, the players might find it useful and hopefully interesting to chat to the NPC characters!
Some NPC characters will be able to join you and help you fight your way through hoards of enemies. It will be your task to help heal them. The game features branching dialogue, so if an NPC offers to help you, it is possible to decline his offer.
