DEPTHS OF FEAR :: KNOSSOS BRINGS THE BEASTS OF GREECE TO STEAM
YOU WILL RUN, YOU WILL HIDE, YOU WILL FIGHT AND YOU WILL DIE.
 

MARCH 12, 2014 - Digital Tribe Games has been working in the shadows with Philip Willey, the one man crew behind Dirigo Games, to bring his indie Greek themed rogue-like adventure Depths of Fear :: Knossos to Steam and other major digital distribution channels. The oracles tell us now is the time to announce unto the world that come the end of March gamers will get their chance to tackle the ever changing challenges that await them beneath the city of Knossos.

 

Depths of Fear :: Knossos, like Athena from Zeus, sprang forth from the mind of the musically trained animator/programmer Philip Wiley. From his passion he has crafted a fun-focused first person adventure game with stealth, action and edge-of-your-seat elements within rogue-like procedurally generated levels. 

"It was a risk leaving a steady job and going it alone with Dirigo. It's been a long, sometimes sleepless challenge, but still, as I sit down to work on Depths of Fear, I am filled with excitement.   I love to create worlds, and the music to fill them. Digital Tribe has given me the advice and support to make it all come together." says indie developer Philip Willey.

Rogue-like at heart, Depths of Fear: Knossos focuses on adrenaline-fueled fun as it puts you in the role of Theseus while he hunts the Minotaur downward through the dark Labyrinths of Crete. Featuring procedural crypts, temples, palaces and caves, increasingly challenging mythical creatures, and the ever-present threat of the Minotaur himself -- Depths of Fear challenges you to find the hero within before fear finds you.

Inspired by the imagery and feel of classic Ray Harryhausen Greek epics and Edith Hamilton's Mythology as well as the synthesized soundtracks of John Carpenter, Wiley created the Depths of Fear experience:
