The game tells the story of a baron who was once powerful but was unjustly banished from the kingdom. He was betrayed by a dark magician who sought the great, magical ore Idirium.
The magician cast a spell on the king, making him accuse the baron of high treason. The baron tried to reason with the king, but the dark magician's spell was too strong.
The baron was banished to the Undead Plains, where he was to live out his final days. But the baron wasn't ready to die. Taking up his axe, he swore to set off on a quest to clear his name and gain revenge
Hi, my name is Cédric Cedu Rohrbach and I’m the developer of the game Baron of Blood. I started the project in 1999 when I was a teenager learning to program with QBasic and Assembler. The first level was created including three enemies and the main character. However, the project was never finished.
In 2021 the old DOS demo was found and played by the twitcher Macaw45. Since it was only a demo version which promised a full version, I was asked by Macaw45 for the full version. But this did not exist.
I decided to finish the full version and started the project in 2021 with my two children as testers. I developed my own game engine in C++ and OpenGL and in 2023 the game was finished and released on PC, Android and iOS.
The twitcher Macaw45 made a stream explaining how it all started and played the full version for 4 hours.
Thank you Macaw45!

In homage to the first MS-DOS demo-version of the game, the main character, the coins and the first 3 enemies remained unchanged.
