Bramble The Mountain King is a grim adventure set in a world inspired by dark, Nordic fables. Explore the beautiful yet dangerous and twisted land of Bramble in your endeavour to rescue your sister. Traverse a wondrous landscape and survive deadly encounters with Bramble’s many hideous creatures.

Bramble The Mountain King takes you on a gripping and unsettling journey through stunning environments. Take on the role of Olle, a young boy setting off to rescue his sister, kidnapped by a dreaded troll.

Not everything in Bramble is exactly how it seems – in this strange land with creatures big and small, you must be careful when to approach and when to hide. Many hungry and spiteful beasts lurk in these forests and caves. Watch your step….

Call upon the Spark of Courage, an enchanted fragment granting the gifts you need to endure the pitfalls and trials in your path. Defeat the horrid creatures you encounter in different and unique ways. Be warned, courage without kindness can take you down a dark path.

Key Features

Adventure as Olle, a brave boy who sets off to rescue his sister.
A beautiful yet dangerous world to explore.
Encounter twisted, mythical creatures from Nordic folklore for epic-scale boss battles.
Tense, heart-pounding moments with hi-end visuals to match


Happy Gaming!

FYI: the demo is in fact gorgeous. Astoundingly beautiful graphics. A little taxing on the old PC re. optimization, but stunning to look at. However, fair warning: if you're a PC gamer who uses mouse and keyboard ONLY (I don't have or use a gamepad or controller, old-schooler that I am), beware that the KB controls are difficult to use (at least in the demo). Besides, the game itself has a warning at the begining: "gamepad recommended."
---For instance, in the demo, there is a dark cave-type area, where you MUST hold down the right-mouse-clicker to KEEP your "lantern" lit also while ALSO using either the default WASD keys (or you can re-program them, as I did, to use arrow keys for direction). I could NOT keep the mouse button held AND use movement keys so I could not quickly jump (when required). Thus: plummeting to my death. Over and over. I eventually gave up and uninstalled the demo. Until this dark area in the demo, the game worked fine with my M/KB controls (outside in a beautiful forest, interacting with a host of lovely beings and animals), because it was daylight and I didn't need my lantern. I was so dissapointed I could not continue.
Perhaps the DEV (s) will adjust programming so non-controller/GP users can play teh game. I hope so: it's so beautiful!

Thanks for the info robedits! Maybe post in the Steam "discussions" and see if you get a reply from the devs.

That's unfortunate to hear robedits! Thank you for the info! I don't like doing gymnastics with my fingers to play a game.

I downloaded the Demo and am going to give it a try.

EDIT: Clumsy, awful interface. I assumed it would be the good old "mouse for direction and WASD keys" for movement. Nope. Mouse does nothing, so you are reduced to holding the W key and using the A and D keys for direction. I've played games like this, but it's not fun. Had to give up on an RPG because of it. This is definitely a gamepad game. I have one, so maybe I need to learn how to use it. But I am terribly disappointed because it is a beautiful game and appears to be a good one.

Thanks Ana, doesn't sound like a game for me unless they fix the controls.

ABsolutely, oldbroad. POsted in Steam discussion groups . NO response from DEVs yet but hopefully they'll fix the control scheme for M-KB players (admittedly we M-KB users are considered dinosaurs by the game creators nowadays as so many games are console ports). I don't have a lot of hope this will happen. WHich is a shame: it's a stunning looking game.

I got a very immature response when I posted my critique on the Steam discussion group. From some childish console lover, I guess. Basically "get a gamepad, grandpa" was the gist of it.

Hi!

The demo is optimized for gamepad, but we will do the best we can to make it work as good as possible for keyboard & mouse before release!

Best

So there is hope anyway! I'll have to go take a look at the discussion board there.
