What the developers have to say:

Dethroned! is still under development and somewhat rough around the edges here and there. However, we continue to improve the game on a regular basis with new features, content updates and bug fixes. You can help us! Play the game and tell us what you think! We will be making frequent balance and gameplay updates based on community feedback and suggestions.

Currently we have the core gameplay with a variety of heroes done. Other big features coming next (not necessarily in this order) are new heroes, new maps, a lightweight quest system and cosmetic add-ons for heroes (think hats!). In addition we will be polishing the game itself, creating new items and generally balancing things for a better game experience.

You can play Dethroned! right away for free. We also offer a special Early Access pack for a limited time that unlocks all current heroes plus all the paid future content, including all the heroes that we will ever add!”

To the players of Dethroned!

June 24th, 2014

Despite our best efforts we couldn’t secure financing for continuing the development of Dethroned!

Because of this we’re in the process of removing the Supporter Pack DLC from the store. In addition all the payment options in the game itself will be made non-functional during the next few days.

We thank the community for the great support Dethroned! got during it’s run on Steam, especially everyone who gave to the development as customers, players and commentators.

Servers running the game will be kept up until money runs out.


Q: Will there be any more updates, like heroes, to the game?
A: No, unless we get funding for that.

Q: How long will the servers be up?
A: Unknown, several weeks is an educated guess.

Q: What happens when the servers go down?
A: Bearded server guy is working on a dedicated server software so those who want can run the server themselves. Release date for this is unknown.

Q: Will there be an option to host a game inside the Dethroned! client itself?
A: Probably no, this would be a much larger undertaking than making a dedicated server software.

Q: Will the game be open sourced if there’s no funding for it?
A: Probably not, for a variety of reasons (like the usage of third-party toolkits).

Q: Is there an upside?
A: Well, if you want to be the best ever player of Dethroned! like, forever, now is your definite chance!

Patch 1.0.10 is now live - now with Alchemist for DLC owners!

April 4th, 2014

Patch 1.0.10 is live! Here's what's in it:

- NEW HERO: ALCHEMIST is now available to DLC owners! The alchemist is a hero that combines three ingredients to make potions, then throws them at the ground for friends or foes to pick up. Although alchemists' base damage is low, they have a lot of room for creative play by using all the potion combinations wisely!

- Matchmaking is back to 1v1! Having team games as the default mode didn't produce desired results so we're rolling back! The matchmaker should still make better matchups than the old 1v1 matchmaking. Team games are still of course available in custom games.

- Speed potion has been significantly buffed.

- Fixed some issues with joining games that lead to game getting stuck in loading screen.

Very interesting game. Theres moba element, also mixed with w3 castle fight elements and with capturing stuff idea. Theres immprovement day after day, so lags, bugs, neverending wait time and many other things are forgiven! This game has big potential. I hope, creators will lead it to the end. according to other free to play games 9/10.

You get to play as a battle-bear that can summon a duck to do battle. If that doesn't make this a good game, then you must be an elitist preteen devoid of any sense of humor and/or fun.

Early Access Review
Dethroned is an action RTS with a very unique and nice art style. It reminds me of the Warcraft 3/ Airmech games where you would control a champion and move him around while you build units. You essentially go around, capturing points, last hitting enemy creep waves, and generate gold to generate more/better creeps. Once enough creeps reach your enemies base/u capture various torches, the enemies tickets(think fortress health) will go down. Get them down to 0 and you win. Great idea, but somewhat rough execution. The mouse panning for the game could use some polishing for as the time of writing, mouse panning is extremely stiff and clunky. This needs to be fixed because one will need to be constantly switching between hero and panning around the map to collect gold from ur gold mines or building more/upgrading buildings on the map. Also, unit mapping and collision is not quite fleshed out yet and could still use some work. All in all however, this is a great game and would recommend to anyone who is looking for a new action RTS to dig into, granted if they are willing to put up with a bit of pre-release clunkiness.

Edit: Rating 8/10

Early Access Review
Simply put , Dethroned is an amazing game. It combines elements of MOBA and RTS so beautifully, with one of the most intriguing, motivating + at the same time simple item systems. Everything about this game is fantastic. There isn't even an option to spend real money on the items either as of right now, so no p2w. The basic concept of it is incredibly innovative and will give the player an experience like no other. Although when you get into it it may feel a little rough, give this game a chance it won't let you down. The VAST majority of anything you may dislike at the beginning or any bugs you encounter will be fixed, because this game is in very early beta right now. I've been playing for maybe a week and most of the issues I had at first ran into have already been fixed. The staff puts out patches at an unbelievable rate, I have seen 3 patches within just this last week.

Tl;Dr This game is amazing, and it is in EARLY BETA so huge potential ( patches 2-3 times a week too )

Early Access Review

Well, as much as i like this game, i can't get over the fact that it is buggy. Sure, its early access, and i know that this game is new, but its not really a stable game right now. I do however like the game, nice idea and all, not too many servers, but the game is just fresh, you can see that they actually spent time in this game. So i actually recommend it. But only AFTER the early access (Maybe the Alpha / Beta stage of the game) But, overall, nice game, besides the stability issues that basicly break the game, as for me, after 6 minutes, it crashes. Every time, but hey, early access people. things are bound to change.
As for now, a 6.5/10, just for the idea, the gameplay, although the controls are horrible (for mac users, for pc, in my opinion, its great.)
