Monomyth Updates, $30,695 and Counting

Having started its Kickstarter journey less than a week ago, Rat Tower Software's first-person dungeon crawler Monomyth has already been funded and even managed to hit a couple of stretch goals. As a result, the game will be launching with an expanded soundtrack and some extra localization options.

And while most of the campaign updates so far have been fairly light, the fifth update directs us to the game's Steam page and a more convenient way to experience its demo.

Check out the Steam description:

As the sun sets on the empires of mankind and civilization crumbles under great storms ravaging the world's surface, the people of Ariath retreat to the underground.

Amidst the chaos of this dying world your father, King Ferodin the Third sent an expedition to the fallen fortress city of Lysandria.

It is said, that within the ruins of the fortress lies the primeval seed - a divine gift that may calm the gods' anger and put an end to the roaring thunder in the sky.

Spearheaded by your own brother, the expedition hoped to retrieve the sacred object but was never heard of again.

Against your father's wish, you decide to travel to Lysandria yourself.

Find your brother and retrieve the divine gift, but beware: The ancient fortress is not as deserted as it seems...
