IGN recently had the opportunity to sit down with some folks from Nihilistic, where IGN received a hands-on demonstration of newly revealed levels and, additionally, a brand new boss battle. And while there are obviously still unfinished elements in the game, Nihilistic has been making excellent progress from what IGN have seen, and the demonstration was quite impressive.
The game will contain an estimated fourteen levels, and the developers predict that Conan will take between eight to twelve hours to complete. According to the developers, there will be over twenty maidens throughout the game that Conan can rescue in order to prolong his quest. And while, as of right now, they have no importance for the overall narrative, their (lack of) clothing will likely motivate gamers to seek them out. The developers insisted that two main elements made Howard's stories stand out back in the day: gore and women. It seems they've included both elements in abundance.
