Free indie horror platformer

Plead with the Mountain God is an independent platformer adventure game developed by Potentially Odd. In this dark horror fantasy, you’re tasked to climb largely abandoned towers in hopes of convincing a god to revive your loved one. What makes this game stand out from its contemporary peers is that it has a low-poly, three-dimensional aesthetic. It creates a sense of nostalgia for players who are familiar with Playstation 1 games and its graphics.

New meets old in PWTMG

The game assigns you the role of the protagonist as he attempts to resurrect his loved one. You will need to go on top of an ancient temple where a great and powerful god resides. You must appease the deity using the clues you gather from the worshippers surrounding the tower. The graves and souls who have failed to the ascent are also present in the area; be careful or they’ll try to take you down with them. 

Using the original elements of 3D platformers and Metroidvania games, PWTMG delivers a challenging yet thrilling adventure. Its mythical and medieval environment is a suitable location as you will find many different towers that you will jump one after the other. There are also grounds and fields you will need to walk across on as it contains more information about pleasing the god.

PWTMG should take only thirty to sixty minutes to complete as there are no other characters you will need to interact with, and there are no other playable characters. Its straightforward storyline and game mechanics will guide you in completing the game faster. While there are no side missions and time constraints, it is up to you to finish as fast as you can or take your time and explore the world first. 

A superb fusion of two genres

Plead with the Mountain God is a great action-adventure game for players that miss the appearance and gameplay of PS1 games. It not only offers the appearance of classic PS1 games but a completely new experience for all players. With its unique storyline, you get a completely new experience with the nostalgia of playing in low-poly graphics and retro playstyles.
