Shred Through Your Foes in Macabre Bullet Heaven Necromantic

Go from lowly freshman to legendary hero when this fast-paced survivors-like launches into Early Access.

[Vancouver, BC, Canada - April 22nd, 2024] - Blinkmoon is excited to open the doors of Valorborn Academy, where a concoction of dark fantasy is melded with bullet heaven gameplay in Necromantic. Forget about mundane school woes; here, your curriculum includes dodging death, flirting with disaster, and impressing your cryptically charming classmates. With fast-paced survivors-like gameplay at the forefront, Necromantic will have you slaughtering hordes of monsters on PC via Steam this year.

As a fresh-faced freshman at Valorborn Academy, you'll juggle your academic aspirations during the day and try to impress your peers at night. You'll pull from a rich assortment of weapons and abilities to fuel your bloodlust as you carve your way to coolness (and possibly impress your crush) by surviving the night. Every outing makes you better and arms you for another chance at survival...or maybe even love.

In Necromantic, it pays to hit the books. Leveraging your combat prowess, you'll earn various textbooks at night. When you return to Valorborn, your wits and intellect will be tested as you learn about your fellow students – especially the ones who covet the various tomes you've collected. 

Get those grades up, or else you'll be fodder for the hordes of undead wandering around at night. Kathedril, the town that Valorborn Academy sits above, is home to a never-ending graveyard of fun. The undead are reanimated by the dark magic-wielding cool kids and who knows what monstrosities will be brought back to life to test your feeble skills. Stay out at night to impress the cool kids, but do so at your own risk, as the horrors that await are otherworldly. Dive into this rich new dark fantasy world – in solo or Blind Date co-op mode – and see if you can help these freshmen pull off the impossible and survive the semester.


  • Dive Into a Bullet Heaven Battleground: Master the art of survival against overwhelming odds in a beautifully dark world.

  • Brave the Dangers and Grow in Infamy: Begin as lowly freshmen growing to to impress your legendary parents by mastering your curriculum.

  • Embrace Cooperation or Solo Prowess: Complete Assignments in the town of Kathedril on your own or with a random player to help you out.

  • Hit the Books, Hit Them Hard: Achieve greatness by hitting the books, unlocking powerful weapons and abilities that unlock new builds to leverage.

Prepare to enroll in Necromantic, launching into Early Access on PC via Steam this year. To claim a spot at Valorborn Academy, wishlist the game on Steamnow!
