L'Abbaye des Morts

An obsolete videogame for a dark passage of history

Faith will be your only weapon

In the 13th century, the Cathars, who preach about good Christian beliefs, were being expelled by the Catholic Church out of the Languedoc region in France. One of them, called Jean Raymond, found an old church in which to hide, not knowing that beneath its ruins lay buried an ancient evil.

A style close to Spectrum ZX, with its dark background and bright colors, proper fit with the story, because it does look old and somewhat horrifying. Also, the gameplay is direclty inspired by Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy.

This little game has been created at nights during our vacation in southern France. The whole game is spontaneous and sincere, straight out of our feelings there in the Languedoc :-)
