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).”

-New Spells: Scorching Flames, Frost Nova & Primal Beam
-Added Right clicking support for buying, selling, looting, equipping, etc.
-Improved camera clipping issues.
-Player can no longer attack friendly units during group combat.
-Various bug fixes and optimizations.

We have also been working hard on a new dungeon area. We are finishing up asset creation and have done some work on the block out design for the dungeon in the engine. We really want to get the new dungeon out (complete with boss) by the end of the year.

Weekly Update 11/6/2014

Ladies and Gentlemen!

It's been another great week for us. The game just keeps growing. This week's update brings in a mechanic that will change everything--weapon and armor affixes! Until we get all of the huge core mechanics implemented, balancing the game is going to be a week-to-week ordeal but we'll keep on top of it. We've also added in some UI tools to help you keep on top of your skills and stats, and a new boss challenge.



Changes:
-Added in Weapon Affxes. (Life-steal, fire damage, etc.)
-Added in Armor Affixes. (+health, +regen, etc.)
-Filled in the stats screen with important info.
-Added in progress bars to next "level" on skills menu (Hold block to show)
-Added in a new boss: Valaran Sergeant.
-Beds now heal you when resting.
-Fixed lag issues during Death Blood boss fight.
-New Armor set: Valaran Elite Set.
-Various bug fixes and balances.

We have some more good stuff planned for next week so keep on eye on our progress. Make sure to keep on top of all our updates.

About This Game

The Memory of Eldurîm is a 3D open-world action RPG set in an original fantasy world.
Terms like "Action RPG" and "Open world" get thrown around a lot these days, so let's be a bit more specific. The Memory of Eldurîm is a 3rd/1st person game where you control a character that lives in an unique fantasy world. The combat is fast paced. You'll have to time your attacks, blocks, and dodges for maximum effectiveness.

From the first second you get in the game you are able to go to any part of the game, granted you are strong enough to take on the enemies that reside there. There will be large cites and small towns, enchanting forests and icy mountain tops, there will be deserts, swamps, jungles, and any of the other biomes we can create.

The game will reward you for your attention to which weapons and spells are strong and effective against which armor and composition types. Certain enemies will be easy with the right load-out but nearly impossible when approached unwisely.

What makes this game special?
We are indie developers with a serious passion for making games. Everything you see here was done by a team of less than 5 people who have put off searching for traditional employment without getting paid all with the hope that the community can understand that we want to make a game for the gamer. We are the first indie company to be approved for an indie license by CryTek to use the powerful CryEngine.

We hear our community. We take your input as to what features get implemented and in what order.

Of course this game will have a fantastic story line, magic, swords, bows, crafting, exploration, homes, mounts, mining, factions, side quests, stealth combat, and all the rest that a game such as this must have. We want to hear what else you think it needs. We want you to be involved in determining the future and the ultimate destiny of The Memory of Eldurîm.

How does leveling work in The Memory of Eldurîm
Instead of hard set levels from 1-99 you will become better at everything you do as you do it. If you hit an enemy with your sword you will immediately become better with swords. You'll even become a bit better at 1-handed weapons, and general combat. You gain health by taking hits and surviving through the damage, and you get more stamina the more you use it. Right now this applies to many aspects of the game, but it is our goal to spread this idea even more.


But won't this eliminate a strong sense of progression? Leveling up feels so good!

We do not want to cheapen the RPG experience in any way. We have added in other aspects of the game that are very discrete. For instance you'll unlock spells and combos the more you use a shard or weapon, and you'll unlock the potential of a weapon the more you use that weapon type. We are still balancing and experimenting with all the finer details but we don't want to rob you of the joy of leveling. We want to add to it in new and exciting ways. As always, we want to hear feedback and new ideas from the community.


An Important Note:

The Memory of Eldurîm is still in the alpha stage of development. This means that the game is not in a complete state and that future updates may delete saved games. It also means that you may encounter bugs, glitches, and exploits that are unintended aspects of the game. It also means, however, that you will be part of a living video game experience. You will see (and even help influence) rapid changes and growth as we develop the game to make it better and better. It is a different experience than buying a game that is already complete and ready for the shelf, but it is very rewarding. Thank you again for supporting us and we hope you really enjoy The Memory of Eldurîm.

Early Access Review
This game is Early Access.

Early Access. Pre-Alpha. I might even go so far as to say its just post-Prototype. This is not simply playing a game, for now it is mainly just testing the game systems and giving feedback and reporting bugs. The main quest only recently got implemented because they ugraded to a newer version of CryEngine, which honestly has made the lighting effects and general graphics of the game much more beautiful than its earlier version.

This game is Early Access.

The game is challenging, enemies hit hard, you have to roll and block. Hacking-and-Slashing will get you dead. There are only 2 spells in the game currently, a heal spell and a light spell, however I believe the developers have said that spells will be receiving attention sometime within the next month.

This game is Early Access.

There are framerate problems and certain things still need to be balanced. Animations are meh. However, they update this game consistently every other week, in fact, its more common for them to provide an update of some sort EVERY week. This is a team of maybe 3 to 5 people and its clear that they are working hard.

This game is Early Access.

Please do not buy this game if you are going to clutter the forums with complaints about how its in an early state. Its advertised as being in an early state, it says Early Access in bright blue all over the reviews and the page. There are features that haven't been implemented yet, such as Co-op.

Please DO buy this game if you want to support an indie developer in making a beautiful, third-person, open-world, Co-op RPG and you want to offer suggestions and feedback.

TL;DR This game is Early Access.

First, let me just say that most other reviews came from a while ago, and dont reflect recent changes, or don't mention the unstable alpha branch that has been updated. With that in mind, please continue.


I'd like to mention something that has been gone over in other reviews. Yes, at the time, this game is not complete yet, and it has a ways to go. The official release branch has not been updated since February, and the devs were quiet for many months after that.

However, the dev team has gotten their engine overhaul almost complete, and have begun an unstable alpha build that they've been releasing updates for on Steam quite regularly. With the updates that I'm sure will be soon added to the game, I'm confident this game will be worth the $20, but if you expect a mostly feature complete game, do not play this yet. Buy it, hold on to it, and play it once it's closer to release.

I'll make sure to update this review once sufficient changes are made.

Should you buy The Memory of Eldurim?

Yes

If you love Open-World Adventure games like The Elder Scrolls series or The Witcher series then you'll love The Memory of Eldurim. The game drops you into a village and tells you to go do what you like. So far there are no real quests, except ones that you make yourself. The game's graphics are beautifully realistic, as only the Cry and Frostbite engines can offer, but not to taxing on your computers hardware, meaning my med-tier laptop can handle high settings and still maintain 40 fps. Finally, the alpha state of the game means that anything can change and anything can be added. Maybe the next update will include dragons. Maybe trolls and dwarfs. Or maybe even Tom Hanks. Only time will tell, and I will be spending that time playing this game.

Great game as of so far. I have expirienced a bug where I have to restart my pc to play it, but otherwise it is very fun. I play for hours straight some days (don't know why it doesn't show on steam) becasue it is so addicting trying to find new equiptment and such. I'm am having trouble killing the first boss though. I was mostly done with him, then died in one attack. Great game overall, minimal bugs for what I have played. A brightness setting would be good though.

The game itself is an interesting concept and the leveling system for absolutely everything that you use is interesting and made me want to use all of my stamina just to bring it up a few more points. Now that is the positive side of my review the negitive side and why I am not recomending this game is that the game when I bought it was early access but had absolutly no content and was last updated in 2/14 I am now writing this review a few days away from 9/14 and there has been no content addition, no bug fixing no word nothing that I can find. This is just a twenty dollar mobile scenry walk through with a bit of combat, quest's don't exist and combat barelly goes anywhere

Pretty nice visuals/graphics, combat system is pretty good, but there hasn't been an update to progress for this game for about 7 months now and that makes me wonder if I bought a 1% made game that will never get worked on.

After looking more into it I felt I should write a new review. This game does update, almost daily. You have to change to the beta version in steam, and they don't update the notes on this site.

I feel that is something they should do, or at least redirect people to the actual patch notes so it doesn't look so dead; just seems better for people viewing it for the first time instead of seeing an update months ago.

That being said, it still lacks many features and many things are not there (a lot of items dont even have text), so i can't recommend this unless you just really want to support the devs. It really shouldn't be out yet, even for an early release.

DO NOT BUY THIS... THING!

There's a lesson to be learned when 18,99€ is asked for a pre-alpha Early Access game that is buggy, broken, incomplete and bland, and that's hardly been updated since it's release seven months ago.

I walked straight into their trap those seven months ago and I really wonder why... :I

I've had this game going on 4 months' now.. I guess the developers decided they got enough money from the people that wanted to assist them with the stupid game. Graphics are awesome. Everything else about The Memory of Eldurim is ♥♥♥♥. Don't waste your time, or your money. Borrow it form a friendly site for a demo if you want to test it out.

Early Access Review
This is one of those games that is and never will be finished. Basically, a couple of lazy programmers (if you can even call them that) took the Crysis engine and made the most rudimentary RPG you could ever imagine....there is ONE town. You start in this town...there is NO voice acting, there are no actual items to speak of. There doesn't seem to be any sort of skill tree or leveling system, (at least not that I could find). It's basically a rip off of the Crysis engine and beyond that, a VERY pre-alpha version of a generic role playing game. If you enjoy running around a Cryis-like environment, killing a few monsters with the most crude combat system known to man and generally doing NOTHING else, this game is for you.

It's original release price was 35 dollars...this game isn't even worth trying for free. Avoid it at all costs. It is definitely NOT worth 19 dollars. Mind you this game has been out for about 2 years...and they have not done ONE update to it...this game is a pure money making scheme, and nothing more. The developers should be ashamed of themselves.

Edit: Oct 28th. One of the developers claims they update this game weekly...but there hasn't been one update in months. Be VERY weary of this so called game. Unless they offer it for a dollar or less...do not bother.

Horrible! Doesn't work! Essentially unplayable. Only after they get your money and download the game does the box pop up saying that the game is in alpha testing or something and please give comments to help them out. So you pay for the privaledge of working for them.

Now that the game went through several updates, it is finally starting to feel more playable. Still I don't understand why you can't find the controls in any menu. Those are quite critical to know when you want to play any game. Turning on vsync makes the game run smoother and less heavy.
Compared to how the game was in February, where it certainly wasn't worth 18 €, it is an ok price at its current state.
Let's hope the updates keep coming on a weekly basis instead of the 5 months waiting at the start of the year.

Shall keep this short.
Some nice ideas but feels like a group of friends have thrown a canvas together for testing purposes, not much more as it stands. When you boot the game it does state "this version is a pre-alpha prototype" which pretty much hits the nail on the head but doesn't sound nearly as charming as 'early access' now does it. :)

Fingers crossed this project doesn't get abandoned like lots of other 'early access' releases.
Will definitely be kept installed to see how it progress but for now I would suggest holding off. Unless you have the spare cash and don't mind supporting 'ideas' and not expecting a complete or close-to complete product.

@devs Keep listening to the community and pumping out the patches and content, because it could well turn into something lovely. Got a very risen/gothic vibe about it and I say this in the nicest possible way.

edit: This review was made with the inital version of the game. I have not had the time to go back and see whats been changed yet. afaik progress so far has been more behind the scenes work for future content. I would still advise to wait and see what the team produces in the future.
