Instead of Secret Treasure Behind Waterfalls, this Metroidvania has Secret Waterfalls Behind Treasure
The rune fencer Illyia takes the Mystery Behind a Waterfall trope and turns it over.
Everyone knows that the number one rule of the game is that if there’s a waterfall, you need to look for hidden treasure behind it. Mysteries behind waterfalls have become such a long-standing theme in games that There is a Twitter account cataloging every instance of this.
An upcoming indie game decided to take that trope and turn it on its head. Rune Fencer Illyia, a Metroidvania currently in the works, has a treasure chest with a special secret: jumping in will bring you to a hidden area full of waterfalls.
This seems to be just one of the many mysteries to be found in Rune Fencer Illyia. The action-platformer focuses heavily on exploration in a vast world of interconnected areas. One of the features that sets it apart from other games in the genre is the ability to steal runes from enemies to create powerful spells.
In Rune Fencer of Illyia you play the title character, Illyia of Moonstone, who wakes up in the wreckage of an airship that has crashed on a devastated world. She must travel across the dangerous unknown land to find her twin sister and somehow return home.
If this sounds like a game you’d enjoy, know that the game appears to be in fairly early development. Apart from that, you can read more about it on Steam and bookmark the Kickstarter page that will be open for it soon.
As for the hidden waterfall area behind the treasure chest, we’re not sure what secrets it holds, but we’ll certainly be following Rune Fencer of Illyia’s development to find out more.
