About

The Demo is available for Windows. Switch and Mac versions will be available on 2020 when the game releases.

 Twitter/Discord/Steam/Presskit 

Endless Memories is an epic 2D action-adventure set in the magical world of dreams. Within each dream, you'll explore incredible scenarios with its own story full of challenges, monsters, and mysteries to solve.  

Set in the world of dreams, Endless Memories takes you on a journey through an interconnected world in which we blend the Metroidvania aspect and RPG systems of “Castlevania” games such as “Symphony of the Night” combined with a loot system out of a rogue-lite game and a fast and responsive combat seen in action games like “Dead Cells”.

You can explore the mind of the dreamers and discover new different worlds. With these new worlds come different societies with their own culture and lifestyle, new power-ups that will open up your path through the different dreams.

Features

Tightly tuned controls. We put a lot of dedication into controls and platforming parts of the game so you can jump, dash and slash your way through even the most deadly challenges.

Explore a vast interconnected world within each dream: from a dark cave to a killer toy factory. Each dream is different from the other, with their own story, characters, and mysteries to solve that will help you get into the core of the dream and save the minds of the Dreamers.

Open up your path with the help of Ancient Glyphs. These Glyphs will help you traverse the world of dreams with ease, improving your mobility and combat abilities; become a lighting bolt and travel through electricity; increase your energy to stomp the floor, and break through the ground and enemies.

Find your own style by combining magic, long-range, and melee weapons with a unique system of Memory Runes. These runes help you evolve your play-style further by providing passive abilities that can improve or completely change your desired play-style. Mix and match your runes to improve stuff like your magic abilities, increase the number of kunai you can shoot, get extra defense with a magic shield, and many more crazy combinations. 

RPG Elements. To make Endless Memories feel and play like the RPGs we love, we added a level and stats system, loot with random rarities, side-quests, crafting, cooking, all sorts of debuffs like freeze and poison, and of course flying numbers! 

The main feature of Endless Memories is its fast-paced and satisfying combat. We have put a lot of effort into this part of the game, not only for it to look and feel great but also for it to be fun. 

You can dash into melee action combat with swords, axes, daggers, and many more. Control your enemies from a distance using long-range attacks like bows and arrows, cast an explosive meteor from the sky to destroy your enemies with magic, or you can combine all of them into your unique style of combat. 

Explore all the different dreams and get deep into the core of them to confront the Dreamers face to face in Epic boss battles to free them from their own minds. 

In the Laboratory of Dreams all minds, ideas, dreams, and memories are connected. You are Rem, an adventurer that lost all his memories and is trapped in the Laboratory of Dreams, where the only way out is inside the mind of the sleeping Dreamers. 

In the search for of all your lost memories, you will find that you are part of a greater mission to free the minds of all the sleeping consciences. You will have to delve deep into the Dreamers' minds to find answers for yourself and free them from their deep sleep state.

Endless Memories is composed of 8 completely different dreams interconnected through the Laboratory of Dreams. Within the lab, we can go into each of them. The deeper you get into each of the dreams, the more they connect. 

Inside these dreams you will find many friends and others not so friendly. These characters can help you with some helpful advises, rune crafting, forging new weapons or enchanting your favorite ones with some element or random properties. 


The Rune Master

Memories Runes are his thing, he is fascinated by them. Bring him the ones that you don't like and he will make you new ones. He also likes gold so he will sure have some special runes on sale for you.


The Enchantress

If you are more into magic and elements, this is your person. She can boost your magic abilities, enchant your weapons with elements or give you a whole new set of properties to your weapons. 


The Dreamsmith

He has hands made of steel, and he doesn't like using hammers at all. If you are looking for some damage boost or a shiny brand new weapon, make sure you visit his workshop and he will make that dream come true.

Apocalyptic Future

We have a vast cast of enemies that will challenge you through your journey into the dream world. We took advantage of how different the dream worlds are to come up with exciting and unique enemies.

Here are some of the bosses you'll encounter!

Captain Croig

Ruler of the frogs. Croig is not like any other frog, he is a captain but also a king. He controls the thunder and has the simple task of stopping you. He know what Rem is capable of becoming and he will make sure you don't get pass him.


N-28

She is the leader and one of the last members of the infamous  D.H. mercenaries. She is renowned for her great revolver skills. It is said that she has never failed a shot.

N-28 became the leader of the mercenary group after the nano war ended. They specialize on robbery and all kinds of misdeeds. 

Queen of Cwenburg

She is a queen and a warlord. She has control over the kingdom of Cwenburg and most of the surrounding forest. Her kingdom has been in conflict with the creatures of the forest for many years. 

The Queen possess the power of the sacred essences. These essences grants her the ability to control the elemental spirits of the forest.

Endless Memories has been in the works for around 3 years but the idea started way earlier than that. It has always been our dream to develop a game that people can enjoy!

We are a team of two: an artist and a programmer, but we also do music, write the story and make our own effects at home, but all this takes time that can be used mainly on game development.

That’s why we need the Kickstarter and your support! We know US$12,000.00 is not enough to develop a project this big but it is the minimum amount needed to give us the push to keep working on the game.

With the extra funds, we can hire musicians, voice actors, include new exciting features and boost the development time by working on the game full time. Also, Kickstarter is an awesome place to build a community for Endless Memories and, to get feedback and suggestions to improve the game.

We want to make Endless Memories the best game ever and we know that with your support and input, we can make it possible.

Thank you in advance for your support!

Homunculus Games is a two brothers' studio of Robert and Hamilton Rufino. We have been making games since we were kids, from mobile to small ones just for fun to play with friends. We always had the vision of creating a big game like Endless Memories in which we can portray all our ideas and knowledge gathered from a lifetime of loving and playing video games.

Risks and challenges

Making games takes time and a lot of work plus, we are a small team of two and that alone is a big challenge!

Before bringing the game to the community, we spent a significant amount of time working on the game's most risky and challenging parts to have the majority of the game working. Endless Memories is a big game, and we hope that the small demo we put together serves as proof that we are working really hard on this dream of ours!

This campaign means a lot to us! It will not only ensure stability to finish the game but will also give us a push to continue putting energy and love into this dream of creating a game that everyone can enjoy.

Thank you for your support!
