What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“From early on in development, we provided a public alpha demo that we iterated with players on based on their feedback. Through Steam Early Access, we'll be able to continue this trend of iteration to a greater effect. We hope to continue this collaborative process of development with the community to ultimately make a great game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We don't want to promise a specific date, but it'll be released as soon as we think it's ready. Until then, Vagante will be in Early Access.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of the game will feature much more content, including new areas, items, monsters, and bosses.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current build of Vagante is fully playable, and features enough content for many hours of gameplay. However, we still consider the game to be in alpha state. This means everything is subject to change, that we're continuously iterating on what works and what doesn't. Additionally, the game may still have some bugs or quirks that we've yet to work out.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The release price may be more expensive than early access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Just like we've been doing since our first public alpha, we encourage players to contact us with feedback. Additionally, we're active on the forums, and hope to participate in discussion with the players.”

Halloween Update - Build 53

Today’s update includes a Halloween event, as well as a handful of larger changes that I’d like to take a moment to talk about.

Players can now jump while attacking with light weapons
If you’ve ever been in the situation where you’ve had a sword but found yourself struggling to hit a bat in a narrow corridor, this change may make sense to you. While experienced players could deal with most of these maneuverability constraints, we’ve found that combat feels more intuitive when allowing for jumping while attacking. This change only applies to lighter weapons however, so you won’t be able to jump while swinging a heavy axe.

Increased attack range of unarmed attacks and CQC weapons
Playing Wildling could be frustrating sometimes, due to the very short attack range of fist attacks. Increasing the based attack range of fists increases the viability of fist weapons, and incentivizes Wildling trees besides Animal.

Increased base damage of bowsUsing a bow tended to not feel great, due to their low impact and high investment of drawing a string. Increasing the damage of bows increases the satisfaction of getting a fully charged hit. 

Added a new lunging attack to SlimesWe’ve also changed the behavior of Slimes (again). The rules for when slimes are able to deal contact damage felt a little unintuitive, especially for newer players. We’ve simplified slime contact damage to two cases: when slimes fall on your head, and when slimes do their new lunging attack.

As always, we appreciate your feedback. If you have any suggestions, bug reports, or even complaints, please us know on our official forums. Thanks for your continued support.

  • Added Forest Temple to online multiplayer
  • Added new broken shrine particles
  • Players can now jump while attacking with light weapons
