Ku: Shroud of the Morrigan – A Celt-Punk Action Adventure RPG
We are the Irish Indie Studio, bitSmith Games.
We have just released the first game in our episodic series on iPad, a hand drawn Zelda-esque action-adventure called Ku: Shroud of the Morrigan.
Ku: Shroud of the Morrigan is an Action Adventure in which Ireland’s ancient past and economic present collide. You play as young Ku, who must venture out in to a broken and strange world for the first time. You will have to battle monsters, solve puzzles and retrieve an ancient treasure from the goddess Morrigan.
It blends a handdrawn, Celt-Punk, art style with a storyline based on ancient Irish legend, with a dash of subtle commentary on the grim reality of economic collapse. The aesthetic of Irish and Celtic cultures are prevalent, and the game offers full Irish language support.
The game was built from the ground-up for full touch controls, so no virtual d-pads in sight! (Our pet hate)
Our first review in the Irish Times called it “imaginative, charming and persistently attractive” and “a hugely promising debut”. Pocket Gamer said it “mixes fantasy and steampunk in all the right ways”. We were immensely flattered by this!
