Right Click to Necromance

You’ve got to love game titles that are so self explanatory that they leave absolutely nothing to the imagination (Snakes on a Plane anyone?). Right Click to Necromance from Montreal indie game studio Juicy Beast is a game that has its instructions in the title and is played by doing exactly that, and is also super addictive. Released to itch.io back in January of 2016 Necromance is still labelled as a “work in progress” but in its current state and feels pretty complete from a gamer-side perspective. That said, it is still just as fun to play (and play it you will).  Over and over again. Kind of like I’m doing right now.

The animation and art style is cute and endearing, giving off a classic medieval comic vibe. The vibe is light, yet dark, because you know, we are talking about necromancy after all.

Left Click to Move, Right Click to…Necromance!

One of the great things about Right Click to Necromance is that a single game can last anywhere from 10 seconds to…much longer. It all depends on how strong your army becomes.  Also, the learning curve is very minimal and man, do we like minimal learning curves! Start by directing your little band of 4 warriors towards a given group of enemy warriors by left-clicking in their vicinity.  Then, watch them battle it out until you either die (yes, it’ll happen) or until the batch of enemies are dead. If you do win the battle, when the message “Right Click To Necromance” pops up, do that (yes, right-click) and the dead will be resurrected and will become an active part of your army. An army of walking dead warriors if you will. And now that they’re part of your army, they will grow your ranks and add to your ability to withstand larger and larger melees. In fact, once you have a large enough army, you can start taking on larger and more powerful adversaries, because yes, you want them to be part of your army as well. Unless of course…they get to you first. It’s all a numbers game really but also a great concept that we’d love to see expanded upon.

Is there an end to Right Click to Necromance? We don’t know yet. What we do know, is that the point of the game is in the title, and it’s fun.
