Hey there folks, VS Renee here with a quick look at the cast you’ll encounter in our Monolith: Requiem of the Ancients demo!

Did I mention our demo is still live? It’s still live – head on over to the Monolith: Requiem of the Ancients Steam Page to check it out and let us know your thoughts!

Let’s make some character introductions, shall we?


Meet The Demo Cast


Awakening in the depths of a forgotten temple, with no recollection of his identity, our hero responds to a cryptic voice that christens him “Astor.” His quest: to uncover the elusive answers to his past and confront the malevolent forces that threaten the future.

Endowed with the ability to mold matter with his will, Astor boldly confronts the trials of his journey, determined to fulfill his fateful destiny.


Nurtured within the sheltered confines of his tribe, Zan’s father, the tribe’s leader, thoroughly prepared him for leadership. Yet, Zan yearned for more. He was enamored by tales of the world outside the crystalline walls of Crystal Haven. The day finally arrived when Zan resolved to venture beyond the confines, evolving into an intrepid explorer of the world beyond.

The Hiltsik Army

Emerging as the predominant threat in Gliese, the Hiltsik army – conceived by Haken as a substitute for the Diokek – has become the world’s most formidable adversary. These soldiers, devoid of compassion, obey orders with unwavering loyalty, making them a force to be reckoned with.

Although the Hiltsik rarely display a conscience, some suggest they harbor enigmatic customs and tribal rites of their own.

Ancient Machines

These self-sufficient automatons hail from the era of the Ancients, serving as sentinels guarding treasures concealed within the sanctums of the past.

The Ancient Machines, unwavering in their vigil, launch preemptive attacks against all who dare breach the sacred thresholds of these forbidden domains.

That’s all for now. Thanks for reading!
