Dynamically swap between three siblings in this 2D, art-driven, puzzle-platformer inspired by Celtic mythology when it releases on Steam this April

March 4th, 2021, Toronto, Canada – Indie game developer HitGrab today announced that its Celtic-folklore inspired debut title Clan O’Conall and the Crown of the Stag, is coming to Steam on April 28th. A highly stylised 2D puzzle-platformer featuring dynamic character-swap gameplay, Clan O’Conall and the Crown of the Stag enables players to switch between the three heirs to the throne, the O’Conall siblings, as they embark on their epic quest to stop the Mother of Demons from reigniting a war against mortals and save their father.

The aim of Clan O’Conall and the Crown of the Stag is for players to seamlessly switch between each character, using their unique skills and abilities to overcome a mix of dastardly puzzles and platforms, fearsome enemies and epic bosses.  Clakshot the archer, Kilcannon the warrior and Haggish the brute are masters of the bow, blade and the fist. All three characters are instantly interchangeable in the heat of battle, allowing players to shift between them at the press of a button to overcome any situation, be it on the ground, high in the trees or soaring through the air. As heirs to Chief Ardan’s throne, the trio must valiantly battle their way through enemy hordes and bosses towards their ultimate destiny of defeating Caoránach, the Mother of Demons. 

Inspired by the rich tales of Celtic folklore, Clan O’Conall and the Crown of the Stag’s epic journey takes place in the land of Hibernia. Action-packed adventure awaits players on their travels through the hand-crafted worlds of Mortals, the Fae and Demons; each teeming with supernatural beings that bring the world of Celtic mythology to life. HitGrab has achieved this effect by weaving together a rich tapestry of modern graphic styles and expertly-crafted platforming with intricate manuscript illustrations and enchanting ancient Celtic designs.
