Return to Castlerama gameplay video available

The beautiful art of Return To Castlerama matched to classic adventure style gameplay is showcased in the newly released video from developer Codenrama.

Return to Castlerama, which displays stunningly on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, captures an atmosphere of intrigue and mystery – there’s an underlying feeling of menace behind these beautiful scenes.

The player takes the role of a young man called David, who must overcome zombies, a dragon and other monsters, as well as solving puzzles, riddles, and card games, in his quest to save the village of Castlerama and the surrounding Gorendal Valley, from the curse of the evil Artaserses.

“Return to Castlerama is a multi-sensory experience,” says Michele Böhm. “As an adventure, it has a rich narrative strand, while the action sequences are adrenalin-packed – the player will identify with David and his mission, and be immersed in the rich beauty of the game’s environment.”

The game is the brainchild of fine artist Michele Böhm, who set up the studio Codenrama in Milan, Italy, together with graphic designer Francesco Palenga, in order to create the game, developed using Unreal Engine technology.

Böhm has exhibited throughout Italy and Europe over the last 33 years, and taught in Milan and at the University of Rome. Throughout this professional life he has always been passionate about the potential of bringing computer technology and art together.

Developed using Unreal Engine technology, Return to Castlerama is designed for all iOS devices: iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch (5th generation). As well as the beautifully crafted graphics, it features a mesmerising soundtrack composed by Fernando Fera and Leandro Piccioni.

Return to Castlerama will be available from June 20 in the App Store. You can find out more about the game on the official website, on the Return To Castlerama Facebook page and by following @castleramagame on Twitter.
