Labyrinth of Druids mixes fantasy with Lovecraftian horror

Druids: No one knew who they were or what they were doing — at least until now! MidDream Studios is in the process of making Labyrinth of Druids, an MMO mash-up of fantasy and dark horror.

Players will begin the game as an amnesic druid with an animal form who must unravel a mystery and go through sinister rituals to reach the finish line. And there is a finish line, as Labyrinth of Druids claims that there’s an actual end to the story — but few players will ever get there.

The title is leaning hard on H.P. Lovecraft’s works for inspiration as well as Egyptian and Celtic mythology and will offer open-world PvP to keep things ultra-dangerous. The game’s sole author, Michal Krča, also claims that there will be an infection mechanic that can eventually wrest a player’s control over his or her character away until that character is killed.

Labyrinth of the Druids is preparing a Kickstarter campaign for next March and has its eyes on a winter 2017 window to launch its alpha program.

Am I right in thinking this video is actually of a band that has been working on a soundtrack for the game and not of the game designers at all? In which case I actually have somewhat more hope for this game, as the music is actually not bad for an indie effort.

Though why you’d start working on a soundtrack before actually building the game is beyond me. Maybe the Battle Bards would approve of such an approach?
