What’s Deepest Sword about?
You play the plucky adventurer charging deep into the Cavern of Longing before stabbing a dragon with your sword. However, you shouldn’t expect to succeed on the first go. The dragon’s heart lies deep, so you’ll have to be patient until your sword is long enough to reach it. Every time you fail, you’re enveloped in a burst of fire then return to life with a slightly longer sword.
The catch is that as your sword grows, it gets heavier and more unwieldy. You’ll have to work out how to use it to navigate the dungeon’s tunnels and corridors and reach the dragon’s lair.
Where can I get Deepest Sword for Windows?
You can download it directly from here. You’ll be given the option of paying a small amount to help support the game’s ongoing development. But if you prefer, you can skip the payment and go straight to the free download.
