A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Every young man from your clan must prove himself worthy. To do so one must set forth on a quest and slay the voracious demon. You have waited for this your whole life. Now it is your time.

Short info

Voracious is a hack and slash action game that tells a story of lust and greed. It was inspired by classic fantasy action games (Golden Axe, Rastan) where hero fights hordes of enemies. In Voracious however, the story is more important than the thrill of simple combat. This is not a story about revenge or treasure hunting but a story about humanity’s worst traits – greed and lust for power. The art style goes further into simplicity than common retro pixel games. It uses ultra-simple black and white vector graphics.

GDPR and Firewall warnings

I do not collect any data however as every Unity Personal Edition game it will try to collect and send some hardware information. Voracious includes menu option to opt-out from this collection nevertheless I noticed that game will try to contact Unity servers before one actually declines it. I suggest to block it on firewall and read Unity regulation on privacy.
