Dume Arts Announces Free Alpha Demo for Crumbling World

NOVEMBER 21ST 2019, MALIBU - Crumbling World developer Dume Arts is delighted to announce that a brand new free alpha demo for the game is now available, giving players their very first chance to dive into a rich fantasy location and explore some early levels.

Players can gain instant free access to the alpha via the game's website. A brand new trailer is also available, setting the scene for this dark fantasy action-RPG, due to release next year for PC and Mac.

Set in a sinister, slowly decomposing land. In a world where humanity has been driven to corruption, aligning with dark forces for survival, the players' task will be to traverse gorgeous diorama-like levels in an attempt to bring back the age of light - before the world crumbles away entirely beneath their feet.

In this early alpha demo, players will experience a number of the procedurally-generated opening stages of the game and take control of Mathos, the Knight - one of the five classes which will be available when the game launches in 2020.

This early alpha demo has been crafted to provide a taste of the world and the intense real-time combat that players will utilize on their journey to restore light to the land.

An updated beta demo will also be available in early 2020, showcasing the addition of the "crumbling" mechanic whereby the corrupted world will begin to decompose beneath the character's feet. Players will need to plan carefully because backtracking will not always be an option once the Crumbling World has vanished.

Crumbling World will launch on Steam in 2020 with a full story mode, 7 playable characters across 5 different classes and 25 procedurally-generated stages.
