i startled and found my head perceiving something unexplainably unreal in something i can only call ”’some other dimension.”’ i met and befriended the beings there. they were all two happy too receive me, and adopted me into their family despite the discrepancies in our physical sizes. i tell you (listen), i lived out my entire life…—… i lived, and died, and when i awoke our website had loaded.
nothing playable yet but hopefully soon. i’ve been getting obsessive about writing super organized code, to the point where i’m kind of just treading water, but i’m enjoying myself so i guess it’s ok?? i can kind of justify all the rewrites by saying that once i have the foundation down it’ll be quick to expand. we’ll see. more than likely i’ll just start over a/several dozen more times
We’ve been asked many times by perplexed players how it is exactly that a pharaoh dances, so we prepared a new trailer to explain.
Now that you know some of the steps you need to take to survive in the land of the pharaoh, try the demo. When you’re practiced enough, you can preorder Pharaoh’s Dance for a reduced price of $4.99. Pharaoh’s Dance will be available later this month.
A demo for our new game Pharaoh’s Dance is now available. If you approve of its contents, you can preorder the full game now at a discounted price. All this and more can be accomplished on the Official Pharaoh’s Dance Internet Webpage.
How Does a Pharaoh Dance?
Pharaoh’s Dance is an action-platformer-roguelike that takes place on a giant spinning carnival contraption. As you ascend, your air supply will deplete. Dive into the abyss and hope that fate brings you the good fortune of oxygen. Collect coins, sell crystals, slow time, and live the high life to the tune of a dynamic jazz-inspired soundtrack. Gamble your way to the top and enjoy riches—or fall forever into the abyss like so many others who have come before you.
Pharaoh’s Dance started with one small wheel that has been under construction ever since. As technology improved and enabled the mining of more resources, the wheel’s rate of growth increased exponentially. Now no one knows how high up it goes.
- Challenging arcade platforming gameplay
- Randomized stages and permanent death
- Dynamic jazz-inspired audio
- Four difficulty levels: Casual, Normal, Intense, and Insane
- Slow down time and dive into the abyss for air
- Sell coins and crystals and upgrade your air tank, parachute, and stomach size

Nick Reineke has posted his playthrough of the beginning of Multilytheus on his show Indie Impressions. He begins to get a sense of the space only to run up against one of the first difficult puzzles.

Multilytheus will be available Monday, September 23, and you can preorder the game now for $2.99 (40% off of the $4.99 launch price).
We also have a new trailer to mark the occasion of this announcement. It shows a little more gameplay than the last one.
Multilytheus started with a Maya file called “hallway.ma.” As new rooms and the various paths between them were plotted out, the size of this file increased. The file, however, was never renamed, and all of Multilytheus continues to take place in one hallway, although it may appear to be a complex network of tubes.
The other game we will be showing at BostonFIG is Pharaoh’s Dance, an action-platformer-roguelike that takes place on a giant spinning carnival contraption.

We will say nothing else for now. The Pharaoh dances soon.
We will be showing Multilytheus and our other mysterious game Pharaoh’s Dance at the Boston Festival of Indie Games at MIT on Saturday, September 14. It’s a totally free event, and we hope you’ll come by to play. We promise we’re more forthright in person.
