What the developers have to say:

Why is The Memory of Eldurîm on Early Access?

The magic of Early Access is that it allows gamers and small independent studios to reclaim the game development process. When you buy the Memory of Eldurîm on Early access your money is going directly to the improvement of the game.

How long do plan to be in Early Access?

We have big plans for The Memory of Eldurîm. We want it to be a game that you can always come back to, to see what's new and what we've been adding. We have been working on putting in a story line. Once our story line has been finished and it is ready, we will release it, and bring our game out of Early Access.

What is the current state of the game?

Right now the game is a fully playable. It takes place on a large island that is fully explorable. There are enemies to fight, loot to find, spells to cast, bosses to defeat, and the very early beginnings of what will be our story line. Most importantly, the game is at a state where we update it often with significant changes that improve the gameplay.

What features are you planning to add to the game?

So many features. We will be adding in stealth combat, different combos for different weapon load outs, a lot more armor and weapons, more enemy types, more story line elements, stealth, faction interaction, more landmasses to explore, crafting, mounts, customizable character, improvements to the UI, and more.

We are going to add these features, and more like them for sure - but is there a feature that the community really wants? We are going to set up a system where users can submit ideas to be implemented in the game and vote on which ideas are the best. We want our community to help us determine how to make the Memory of Eldurîm the best gaming experience possible.

What is our pricing strategy during and after Early Access?

The Memory of Eldurîm will be a game you'll purchase only once during and after Early Access. You can buy now with confidence that we won't switch to a new model and leave you feeling cheated. We don't want to sell additional content via DLC, we want to keep content updates free for the life of the game. If our game is successful we would then sell additional games (e.g. The Memory of Eldurîm 2).”

The Memory of Eldurim Update.

Hello everyone!

It took a bit longer but we have our update out and ready to go.

This is the first iteration of the balancing update. With it comes the groundwork for a more complete and dynamic combat system. Our goal is to give the player as much control over the type of combat he or she wants to engage in.

We have added in damage types. While they aren't doing a whole lot right now, we will be able to to use them to build a system full of weapons and armors that interact with each other in interesting ways. Eventually you'll need to think about the enemy you are facing and choose wisely on how you want to conquer.

Work continues on the interior of the archives as well as several new areas to come. In the future we are looking towards getting a basic crafting system in and a more dynamic combat system.

Let us know what you think on our forums and keep in touch with us on twitter (@liminalgames) and youtube. We also stream each week on

-Weapon damage balanced.
-Armor value balanced.
-Starting stats balanced.
-Health values of enemies balanced.
-Added in damage types. (Slashing, Crushing, and Piercing, UI is not displaying the type yet but types are present and interacting with armor)
-Added in new animations for 1 handed mace move set(Early versions, modifications will be made).
-Changed greatsword power attack animation.
-Dramatically decreased CPU load. (Expect large frame rate improvement).
-Added in weapon Quality and Condition (Note, you won't be able to find higher tier weapons just yet, but they will be added in very soon, additional balancing required)
-Rescaled armor effectiveness. Armor rating now more effective at reducing damage.
-Additional artwork added to the exterior of the archives.

About This Game

Follow the Indie RPG Spirit in Search of The Memory of Eldurim

You know the feeling of setting sail beyond the edge of the map, beyond the boundaries of knowledge? So do we. One reason we love video games is that they offer fresh lands to discover.

Discover a new world, its adventures, and its haunting story as you play The Memory of Eldurim. As Liminal Games, an indie studio, we make games specifically for people with their own indie spirit.

People like you--those who long to discover.

Cash in your creativity. Fighting isn’t so much spam-clicking. It’s more of a dance. You will need to recognize openings and to strike in particular ways. You have to think to fight. At least, if you want to win.
Shape a civilization. Save a town from eradication--or eradicate one yourself. Purge a city of thieves--or foment anarchy through political assassinations. Lead or abandon an exodus. Fund a town hall, troubadour’s guild, refugee district...or buy your own estate. Cultivate alliances...or the opposite.
Change the game through the forums. We listen to your input because we believe that you, like us, deserve to be heard. One day, you might tell your friends about how your comment changed the magic system. As proof, you might show them the relic you received in thanks. A communal development strategy should be exciting for all.
Explore an expansive and intricate world. The CRYENGINE makes for some stunning visual scenes. Experience them through your travels across this new world--its sleepy forests, blistering deserts, glittering tundra, submarine ruins, and more.
Seek the Memory of Eldurim. Everyone is missing something, but most cannot remember what it is. It is their only hope against darkness. Seek the Tree of Light on your quest to save the world, rule it, or destroy it.
Count on RPG essentials. We didn’t discard the strengths of the Open World, RPG genre, we simply took them as our starting point. The vision detailed above (that you can add to on the forums) stands on solid RPG essentials. For example, of course your character can level up, but not through a cliche system.

Heres a few things to think about if you're on the fence about this one.

The Devs on this game are active, they actually reply to you're coments, and suggestions ( often just hours after you're original post ), and they don't avoid, nor come up with excuses.
Its a comprehensive fix, and the elaboration is there.
Now this is pretty significant when you're talking about an ER game from my personal experience.

The updates are regular, I've had this game for only 3 months and yep, you guessed it, 3 updates ( one of them game changing, and new items and spells to boot ).

The actual gameplay is already fun, whether you're talking about leveling up you're blade skill ( swordblood I think ) by hitting things repeatedly, or zapping a stone golem from a distance to level you're stormblood skill, the action is quick and frenetic, and more importantly it works.

The magic sytem is fresh, and unique, its called Icor, look it up in the forums because I'm not going to ramble on about it here, suffice it to say, if you're sick of watching you're mana bar refill, you should take notice.

The visuals are quite nice, we have realtime shadows, full day/night cycles, fog in the graveyard, and when you overdraw on the magic ( see icor ), I realy appreciate the route these guys are taking, it may not be groundbreaking, but again it works.

Now this game isn't finished, and it shows.
There are void spots, some places are empty, most NPC's just feel like placeholders, yadda yadda yadda.
Its EA so all this stuff will go away, but its there.

Also You might want to double check you're system specs to the recomended.
If you have a gaming pc, and you know whats in it then I'm preaching to the choir here.
But if you don't know what a 3d card is, do not buy this game !
Do some research, please, you will save yourself some frustration, and you'll lean something as well.

With all this, I am recomending this game as an Early Release to my friends, and anyone who is interested.
I'm not saying you should get it, but if you do, and you can run it you wont be disappointed ( unless you just want to complain about stuff ).
It pretty much does what it says, and what you'de expect it to do as an Early Release.
Pluss its got some cool gameplay which is saying alot for any game nowadays.
I'm glad I got it, and I'm going to watch it grow ( and it is growing ), its a different game from then till now, and I'm quite pleased with my purchase, and the progress.

Against my better judgement, and at the risk of sounding a bit over enthusiatic, I have to again pont to the gameplay on this one, so if you don't want to hear me rambling on skip this one.

That feeling you got when you found something in a game that scared the crap out of you, and then it just utterly destroys you, then you get to respawn and either a) try it again, or b) maybe do something new ( which could take days ).
Now, thats a pretty big incentive to play any game on its own, but when its fun ( game play ), and you dont mind ( visuals, stuff to do, places to go ), well to me thats important, and should be noted.
This game already has that, and theres not that much stuff in this game.
This is a big deal on finished games, and I realy hope I get to see a whole world to run around in.
If these guy's make it big, this game could be fantastic.
And with time ( as with any game ), who knows where the public will take it.

So there you have it, I'de say good, not great......yet.
Just make sure you're pc can run it first please.

Early Access Review
You'll notice a lot of the negative reviews are from a while ago and don't really reflect what this game has evolved into. The devs have really been hitting the updates hard and the game has made tremendous strides. The graphics alone are breathtaking and the combat and gameplay are really starting to come along. Currently, there is a lot to do and explore in the game and it's fun to just lose yourself in the beautiful world they created. I honestly see great potential in this game as it moves forward and I'm excited to see what each new updated brings.

What's great about this early access games is the devs are really involved. They update the game regularly and take feedback from the community. Just go to the discussions and you see the devs interacting with the players and taking their suggestions and implementing some of them in the game. I don't get the feeling that this is some fly-by-night group, and they seem to care about their product. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase and I highly recommend this game to open world RPG enthusiasts.

Early Access Review
This game looks better than some triple A games currently out, which is kind of saying something for an indie group. It reminds me of Skyrim with the feel of farcry. I could see this being a game where after you gain an intimate knowledge of the layout of the terrain it gains a sort of nostalgic quality. Maybe because it has this appeal to kind of wander around and explore, AND since its more vibrant than Skyrim it has a minimal copypasta feel to it.

The combat mechanics are a good mix of RPG and action elements. And I'm happy to see this game has an asymetrical magic system that is different from the typical kind of system where players get a fire spell and an ice spell and the only difference is the color. My main qualm with a lot of other games with action and RPG elements is that they usually tend to gravitate to RPG or Action, whereas here we see a true blending. The formula looks like it has deeper potential than even Skyrim or Oblivion. In fact its like they took the best lessons from Skyrim and Dark Souls and are blending them in a hardcore fashion.

Clearly it looks far from finished though which isn't a bad thing (because its obviously already beautiful), it means there is a lot of room for growth. I think its worthing buying as is, and definately worth buying just to see what it becomes.

One last thought to expand on my first comment: Most indie games sacrifice great graphics in favor of faster development cycles and thoroughly fleshed out game mechanics. Almost all 2d platformers, Minecraft, terraria, Don't Starve, FTL: Faster than light etc. are some examples. Therefore I have to give major props to this team for attempting to sacrifice nothing for a great gaming experience. Its a huge challenge. I develop software professionaly too in a non-game industry and I'm aware that a lot of triple A games will have entire teams of guys dedicated to graphics alone, teams probably larger than this entire dev team who also is doing all the different aspects involved in coding a game not just the graphics. It means too that since they have accomplished so much already I can see that they have majorly invested themselves in finishing. Now or later this game is going to be a finished bomb-shell and people are going to wonder how it snuck up on them.

This is already a great game and all indications show it will only get better. Progression is very natural. This is not a game that will hold your hand. Combat and magic systems are well founded. Updates are regular.

I have been playing this game since the earliest alpha testing. The best part of this game is to see how far it has come. Its obvious that Liminial Games is commited to continually updating and improving their game. The environment is beautiful, which makes it enjoyable to explore every aspect of the map. The combat system keeps on improving and they keep adding more spells and items. I also like that there is no traditional leveling system. The only way to improve a skill is to use it. They more you use each skill the better your character becomes at it. This is a game you want to get early because it just keeps getting better!

NOTE: The majority of all the negative reviews were written before a lot of the newer content was added into the game, and as such DOES NOT reflect the games current status. While it is to be expected, and apparently many didn’t get the memo, that an early access game is not the same as pre-purchasing one. It’s a different yet rewarding and enjoyable experience to be part of. Plus, the devs are awesome and always willing to answer your questions or receive any feedback you might have for them here in the forums or over at their weekly twitch stream. I've really enjoyed playing the game: interacting with the devs and other supporters, and you could too.

When thinking about whether or not you want to purchase this game, keep in mind the following:

  • Do you hate paying for DLC and would rather enjoy free content updates in a game? Check!

  • Are you like me who wants to explore and conquer a gorgeous and ever growing open world universe? Check!

  • Isn't it great when the Devs actually respond to your feedback on the forums? Check!

  • Would YOU like to help shape an Open World RPG universe? Check!

  • Isn't it satisfying when your play style wasn't given the short end of the stick? Check!

  • Do you enjoy games with deep combat systems which gives you a real sense of dynamism and strategy? Check!

  • Would you like it if no effort you put into your character will be wasted? Whatever you do will improve some aspect about you! Check!

The following features are currently being developed:
  • Want to be take part in guilds to earn the top title to wield influence over others? Check!

  • Want to be part of a modding community for the game? Check!

  • Do you like crafting and mining to create new and exciting equipment? Check!

  • Want a multiplayer experience where you can play alongside or against your friends and other players? Check!

  • This and so much more is just waiting for your support!

My time with The Memory of Eldurim has been a satisfying and rewarding early access game experience that would satisfy any serious gamer with a patient eye for epic role-playing games. It’s obvious that the team at Liminal Games are passionate and talented developers who are committed to making this game the absolute best it can be. Their commitment to this game is proven by the frequent quality updates like this: improving upon already existing features; adding in new and exciting ones; updating their placeholder animations with professionally created ones; and also by adding new HUGE and beautiful areas to explore and conquer. It’s always exciting to see what future updates will bring us!

It's great to know that these guys are serious about delivering us the best experience possible. You know that you're getting your moneys worth when you buy this game, and the piece of mind that they'll continue to pump out great content as they have been!

Or in the words of Bryan, a developer of MOE:

"We don't have any reason to right now [stop developing] we have every reason to continue." (hear for yourself)

I highly recommend you support this great game now and not wait to buy it!

I havven't played much of this game yet. At first I was a bit skeptical, that is, when I bought the game a few months ago, there were a lot of bugs and the game didn't have a lot of updates. Then many great updates started coming out and the game started to improve siginificantly. It is obvious that the developers are working really hard to make this an epic game, and, from what I see, they are actually doing it. The game has been through some major improvements, and the developers don't stop, frequent updates and improvements have made this a must have. I'd recommend this to anyone, mainly because the developers are putting so much hard work into making this game awesome. Thanks a lot for doing this!

well... you can't get naked in this game!
let it be that this is coming from a person who never approved or even liked the idea of Early Access and only purchased 2 early access games proven to have a good hard working dev teams behind them - the Long Dark, the Forest - while never played them, this game fits in my simple concept of supporting a Dev Team. the game has potentials supported by constant updates and I'm hoping to see it done, God knows we need more Action RPG games..
if you here to play the game I will say it's too early for that, though I enjoyed the environment and the charming Ambient Lighting the game in whole it reeks of unflushed mechanics and lacks more features than it delivers.
but it's 20$ to support the Game, so make a decision,

right now
hurry up I'm waiting :P

I feel like I've played long enough to give a fair review now. So, here's my thoughts.

First of all: The environment. The mountain, towering up from the earth, and the temple on top. The bridge, spanning from said mountain to the archives on the other side - and of course, the newly added Archive itself. It's just stunning to look at. I've been staring at the environment far longer than I usually do in games. I hope to see many locations as beautiful as this with future patches.

The graphics are superb, too. Nothing to complain about there. The sounds are a bit generic, but as far as I know, devs are implementing sounds as the development progresses. The sounds will surely be better once the game is released.

What about gameplay? The combat is.. well. It's hard. It's fun and tactical, but it's hard. But then, I usually suck at combat in these types of games unfortunately. A suggestion: difficulty slider.
I have only tried magic on occasion, and never in fact tried fighting using it. There's an illumination spell which I fairly often use, and the magic system is pretty interesting. Instead of mana, you have something called Ikhor. Pile up enough of it, and you die. You gain Ikhor by using spells. It's like mana in most games - but instead of just running out of mana, you'd die. You also collect shards, which contain certain spells. There are equipped on your arms/gloves and makes you able to use said spells. Quite an interesting concept, and it works too.

As it is right now, you just resurrect at nearest bed/camp when you die. You don't lose anything(as far as I know), and that's just good for me, since I die like 10 times everytime I play the game.

Overall, I think this game is worth the 19 euro they ask for it. I won't give a score at this time since it's so early in development. I do recommend it if you like games like Skyrim, ie open-world RPGs.

Sorry if this review is muddy or something, I've been awake far too long. It should, though, get most of my points through.

Wow, impressive for only an EA game. The visuals are phenomenal and has really solid game-play. I didn't encounter any major bugs at all. You can tell it's a really well done game when playing. I was able to fight with swords, axes, maces, and a spear. I hear bows are going to be part of the game in the near future. If you like to be a mage, there were plenty of really cool spells to choose from with a really unique and interesting way to manage your mana that I haven't seen before. So far it's looking really great, and I haven't even seen or done everything yet!

If you like like oblivion or skyrim, this game could easily be the next big RPG!

So fun! Keep the updates coming!

I'm definitely going to keep playing this one, you should too :)

A couple of important points...

-Amazingly responsive devs and frequent updates, this really is Early Access done right.

-If you like use-based progress systems this is one of the very few options out there... Helps that it's also a great game for its stage of development and on a very promising path for the future.

I have owned this game for a while, but have hardly played it because my video card was not sufficient enough to make the game enjoyable. I upgraded my video card and the game has also been updated. Now it runs smoothly and looks beautiful.

I have not played too far into the story, but so far the game play is excellent. It is a cryengine game and it shows. The graphics are beautiful, the action silky smooth.

At this point, I would say that if you are a fan of the elder scrolls games or the Gothic series of games, this game is worthy of your attention. The only question left in my mind is not "will this be a good game when finished?" Instead the only question I am left with is will this game be merely very good when finished? Or will it be an indie classic? The potential is there.
