Elden: Path of the Forgotten follows Elden’s journey as they are thrust into a dark and dying world that they must survive. The story is inspired by my experiences leaving home at age of 15 and being thrust into a dark world that scared and confused me.

Guide Elden on a mission across a blighted land to save their mother from ancient horrors. Engage in brutal, technical combat and master eldritch magics as you walk the Forgotten Path. Elden explores non-traditional storytelling through indirect methods – like reading an illustrated book in a language you don’t understand. The combat is based on reaction rather than action. Strategically, you will need to manage your stamina and position in order to master the art of parry or to find the perfect time to strike. Visually inspired by classic 16 and 8 bit games, Elden: Path of the Forgotten is a stunning, encapsulating, dark world waiting to be explored.

  • Figure out Elden’s confusing world without guidance, tutorials, or support.
  • Many diverse and challenging regions.
  • Horrifying Lovecraftian enemies and bosses.
  • Unique and brutal weapons and spells.
  • Powerful and dynamic items.

This game was definitely a challenge but I found it quite charming and overall had fun with it! 


This game is greattt! reminds me of hyperlight drifter but this game has it's own taste, i love it!


Thank you! I'm glad you liked it. It means a lot :D 


Ugh, why can't I ever escape that Elden Ring garbage???


This game was annouced years before elden ring and released in 2020


I got this in the Ukraine bundle and wow! What a well-constructed little Soulslike. Difficulty isn't too rough but that's to my liking, as is the Lovecraftian atmosphere. Great job Oneratgames!


Thank you so much Valkorus! 

Elden was largely solo developed game by me (Onerat Dylan)! It took me 4 years to complete the game, so it means a lot to hear when people are enjoying it!

Thank you for supporting the bundle!
