About This Game

Delver is a first person action roguelike dungeon crawl with crunchy pixels.

Take the role of an adventurer that tries their fate in the dark dungeons (and probably dies horribly). Fight monsters, grab loot, hoard potions, and level up!
Quest for the Yithidian orb at the darkest depths of the dungeon and attempt to bring it back to the surface - getting to it may be the easy part.
Levels are randomly generated in each playthrough so you'll never know quite what's around the corner.

Delver is in an unfinished beta state at the moment and has it's share of bugs and rough edges that need filed down, but it's very playable even in this unfinished state. Help us guide the direction of the game with your early access help and feedback. Our future plans are to revamp all of the art and sound, increase the depth of the RPG system, add special events and minibosses to the random dungeon generator, implement full gamepad support, and add a ton of new content. Help make Delver the best game it can be!

Development isn't entirely abandoned, but a safe bet would be to say no new substantive update would come out this year at all. Go ahead and look for the company's twitter and the dates/frequency/content of posts if you wnat to get a better idea. Dont let the "Early Access" label get your hopes up. Assume this is all you will ever get.

At the very least, it needs some optimization updates. This could vary machine to machine but just because your computer is othewise pretty good at what should be harder to process doesnt mean you wont get jarring stutters in this game. Reduction of particles does next-to-nothing to aleviate. There isn't even an update to change the pixel resolution at full screen, or any control customization/mouse sensitivity options whatsoever.

Beyond that, the game does have interesting aesthetics but with enemies that could best be described as an annoyance, with melee combat that feels more like a batting range with softballs. Maybe you wont regret buying it on a Steam sale, but if you're budget is 20-30 bucks for the whole sale, look elsewhere.

This game has soooo much potential, developers. We just need some more content, get back on this thing guys! This could potentially become one of the most played games in my library. If you updated frequently this could be amazing. This game is a lot of fun for a few hours, but it gets boring quick. Buy if on sale, otherwise don't.

A solid rogue-like with an appropriate amount of content for a Beta. A small variety of weaponry and enemies allow for several hours of fun, afterwards it gets rather repetitive.

Immediately you're cast in the dungeon and it's up to you to learn, and until you do learn, it's trial and error which will lead to death. Once finished, the game doesn't offer any much more to do.

The combat is fun and I enjoy the artstyle and it's quite amusing to explore the randomly generated dungeons, however despite all that, even after a year, the game is still in Beta. Just another game dumped by the developers. Not worth the money, but it's a good purchase on sale.

5/10 - good game with potential but I don't tollerate abandoned games and false promises

I love this game, but the developers abandoned it just before finishing it.

While its mostly complete, there are several major bugs. One of the platforms is completely broken. And the devs have gone completely incommunicado.

Pass unless they return fix it up, and take it out of Early Access.

Is this game fun? Yes. Is it worth your money? Yes. Is it finished. Kinda. Is it abandoned. Possibly.
It is great but buy Ziggurat or tower of guns if you don't want to spend money on a possibly abandoned game

The game is great, it's a funny dungeon crawler. You can explore much in the automatic generated enviroments and get deeper and deeper.
Also the gameplay is nice, it feels accurate to walk through the dungeon.
The sounds are a bit awful, I hope there are coming new and more sounds. Also the music is a bit boring.

Now the bad and worst part: the game is abandonned, you buy here an early access title which is no longer beeing developed. So this unfinished version is the final version as it seems. It almost a year since the last update and it looks like there wont come anything more.

RIP Delver
Really horrible how a very nice and promising game can be sentenced to death by it's developer.

I am in love with this game. Well worth my money. The graphics are AWESOME, the gameplay is also awesome, but fair warning, you will die. A lot. And restart. There is no safety net. The dungeon regenerates when you die. So, I'd recommend it.
