Cathedral is a game which takes you back to the roots of NES gaming. Its main focus is on exploring an unknown world.

Discover a world with towns, dungeons and hidden areas. Conquer the dungeons and find items that will help you unearth more of this strange world. Avoid both traps as well as the dangerous creatures that inhabit this peculiar place while making your way through this world, one dungeon at a time.


Development on Cathedral started in late 2014. Early development was focused on building a 2D game engine that ran on multiple platforms.

The larger part of the first 6 months in development was spent prototyping both the game engine and various tools needed for development. Cathedral has since gone from prototype to playable game and is currently in development.

Game Features

  • Large non-linear world, meant for exploring!
  • Secrets, puzzles and side quests
  • Old school 8 bit action adventure gameplay
  • Conquer dungeons to unlock new skills and items to help you reach new corners of the world
  • Many distinct areas, each with it's own unique aesthetics
  • Several towns to visit and NPCs to interact with
