Veil of Madness is a short eldritch horror dungeon crawler with puzzle elements, which sees you discovering dark secrets in a monster-filled mansion.
Created for the Dungeon Crawler Jam 2023, in Veil of Madness you can choose from one of four adventurers and venture into a mysterious mansion. As with traditional dungeon crawlers you can move forward, back, left and right, but you can also use the mouse to look around – which comes in handy for searching for clues and reading lore.
The combat in the current build of Veil of Madness is fairly basic but effective, with you using a gun or a crowbar to carry out ranged or melee attacks. It does feel like a short prototype for a larger game as the game ends just as you’re getting going (but in a clever way). It shows a lot of promise though as the mix of puzzles and dungeon crawling works well and the mansion environment is beautifully crafted.
