Target Acquired: Courier of the Crypts

Courier of the Crypts, from Emberheart Games, is a puzzle-based adventure that makes heavy use of light and darkness. You play a courier who must deliver a letter to the guardian of the crypts, but you soon find yourself trapped within the walls of said crypts, where dark forces have risen. You must use your magical torch to feel out the dark spaces, light new areas, and ward off enemies... but its energy drains with each passing moment. You'll need to solve puzzles in order to move forward, such as triggering floor plates and activating switches, along with some puzzles that specifically involve use of the torch. Various critters lurk in the depths, and your main weapon against them is a handful of rocks, so you need to know when it's best to fight, when it's best to run, and when you can use the environment to your advantage to sneak by.

The game is now available for PC via Steam,, and Humble Store. Check our coverage here.
