EnjoyUp Games and Francisco TÚllez de Meneses have announced that Unepic, a mixture of platform game, role game and joke that takes place in a huge castle of medieval fantasy, will arrive in Europe for Wii U on January 23rd, 2014, via the Nintendo eShop. The hero is called Daniel, a normal guy from today: great videogame player, big lover of sci-fi movies, novice player of role games, pot-head and overall, a bit horny due to a misterious lack of success with girls. In the middle of a role game he is teleported to a castle and he thinks that he is having a massive hallucination due to any drug that their friends may poor in his beer while playing. So he decides to run his own adventure until the effect of the drug lasts.
In the castle, he will be possessed by a shadow, however this shadow cannot control him (being able only talk). The only way of the shadow to escape from the Hero's body is by the death of the Hero, so the shadow will lie all the time giving false clues always looking for the Daniel's death. In the castle he will visit an oracle and find out what's the goal of the story: to kill Harnakon, the master of the castle, and free Pure-Spirits. This story sounds typical for a role game, but during the adventure Daniel will discover that everything is not what it seems.
