Your sight slowly comes back as the sharp stench of blood and bile brings you back to your senses. Fear got the better of the endless youths tossed in this cell before, but not you. You stand with your honor as the guards remove you from the tight confines and thrust you you before the judge, jury and King above Knossos, Minos. In an instant, you are flung into the depths, and the few peaceful moments of weightlessness before splashing into the water below are the last you will have. You are Theseus, son of Poseidon, here to kill the rampaging horror that is the Minotaur. You will either succeed in the slaughter or learn the true meaning of fear trying.
Depths of Fear :: Knossos, like Athena from Zeus, sprang forth from the mind of the musically trained animator/programmer Philip Wiley. From his passion he has crafted a fun-focused first person adventure game with stealth, action and edge-of-your-seat elements within rogue-like procedurally generated levels.
In Depths of Fear :: Knossos your ultimate goal is to slay the mighty Minotaur. Loot procedurally generated labyrinths that are never the same twice to acquire the gold and knowledge necessary to build an arsenal and gain favor with the gods who will grant you temporary powers. Overcome insurmountable odds as you bolt in and out of the shadows fending off both lowly and legendary creatures such as the Hydra, Cerberus, Medusa and Centaur. To succeed in your quest you must collect the special medallions from each immortal beasts’ lair that combine to unlock a master sword that is the Minotaur’s only weakness. You will run. You will hide. You will fight. You will die.
