Brocanty Games presents:

Black Sect 2: The Cursed Crypt (PnC Remake)

Story:
After stealing the magical book of spells in La Secte Noire (Black Sect 1), the Black Sect has returned to terrorize the population.
They are gathering in a nearby crypt, below the dark rooms of the castle of Golin the Gnome, and you have ventured into it.
Find your way to the crypt through the castle filled with passages blocked by gates, doors and chests to be opened, buttons to be
pressed, levers to be pulled, and secret rooms...
Can you annihilate this evil sect once and for all?

Wait, what? Black Sect 2?!?:
The original 1991 version of Black Sect 2, called 'La Crypte Des Maudits' was the successor of the 1990 game 'La Secte Noire',
the original 'Black Sect'. Both were done by Lankhor and only released for Amstrad and supported French only.
The better known 1993 version of 'Black Sect' was Lankor's own remake of 'La Secte Noire'.

Well, I always thought that Black Sect looked like a pretty cool game, and now not only do I discover there's a sequel, but on the same day its remade. I guess I better find the time for playing the original now. Even if it turns out this game is really bad, you sir, are awesome.

@TheFrighter:

In short:
By using an emulator (sometimes for multiple consoles or
old home systems) and making screen dumps.
Still you often need to correct colors and alter the screens.
GUI's and inventory items had to be made from scratch.

Just saw this yesterday and started playing. Very well done. I never played "Black Sect", but this was interesting. I like this style of games anyway.

And finished. Thank you for this game.
