What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Making the game available since its early stages has been vital to its development. Feedback received from players was priceless. Now I feel that KeeperRL is ready to be shown to a wider audience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“For at least one year, maybe more.”

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

“The full version will be more stable and polished, and more complete in every aspect. Maps will be larger, monsters more intelligent, and loot more plentiful.

Individual games will last much longer.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“It's very playable, and stable enough to work for most players. A single game will give you up to two hours of fun. And you won't win on your first try :)

There are still some bugs though, and the game is incomplete in many ways.”

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

“The price will stay the same.”

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

“I've already involved the community by taking feature requests and openly discussing the game's design.”

KeeperRL Alpha22 is released!

KeeperRL Alpha22 is out! The update features a dedicated tutorial, as well as many technical and gameplay improvements. Check out the changelog below for details.

If you would like to continue with your saved game from Alpha21, you can opt-in into the "Alpha21 save compatibility" BETA branch under the game's properties in Library. Make sure to opt-out of the branch to go back to Alpha22 when you're done!




Gameplay changes:

  • Dedicated tutorial mode that teaches the game's basic features and controls.
  • Saving and loading times, as well as save files sizes, decreased 2-3 times.
  • Portals are available as a building, instead of a spell. They don't time out.
  • All resource values, except mana, are deflated 5 times. (everything costs less, you extract less).
  • Team members are woken up and untied when given a "go-to" order.
  • Creatures will not give healing items to wounded friends who already have means of healing themselves.
  • Ownership of an item by a minion is assumed when player equips the item in control mode.
UI changes:
  • Added setting to disable vertical sync, which may solve some framerate issues.
  • New, nicer research menu.
  • Added descriptions to keeper-adventurer menu.
  • Changed highlighting of various buttons and tab icons.
  • Clicking on controlled creature skips turn.
  • Added a simple movement animation of creatures when destroying objects, digging, and cutting trees.
  • Window "close" button is highlighted.
  • Swapped storage colors. Equipment is now blue, resources green.
Bug fixes:
  • Fixed UI crash when changing minion's task.
  • Fix drowning of flying creatures that enter deep water that is in forbidden zone.
  • Fixed mouse navigation to enemies that are far away when in control mode.
  • Fixed crash in item pick up menu.
  • Made message boards work even if statistics gathering is not enabled in the settings.
  • Fixed movement animation glitch when using mouse and being interrupted by enemy.
  • Fix UI crashes involving workshops and minion equipment menu.
  • Fixed tooltips in workshop menu.
  • Fix scrolling inventory in control mode.

About This Game

KeeperRL is an ambitious dungeon simulator with roguelike and RPG elements. Take the role of an evil wizard and study the methods of black magic. Equip your minions and explore the world, murder innocent villagers and burn their homes. Build your dungeon, lay traps and prepare for an assault of angry heroes.

When you control your minions the game changes into a classic roguelike, with turn-based and very tactical combat. You can also play as an adventurer and assault dungeons made by you or other players.

Dungeon management

You will dig deep into the mountain and build dozens of rooms, corridors and traps. Your minions will train and produce weapons and armor. Prisoners will be tortured. You will research new technologies like alchemy, beast mutation and sorcery.

Roguelike mechanics

The world is simulated on a very detailed level. Creatures use equipment and consumable items. There are dozens of special items, spells, attributes and special attacks. You can cut off heads and limbs and blind or poison your enemies. If you're not careful with fire, you can burn an entire forest or even your own dungeon.

Large, procedurally generated maps

In your neighborhood you'll find castles, villages, other dungeons and special locations. Slay heroes, dragons and witches for their loot. Every game you play will be different.

Online map sharing

Download dungeons made by other players and explore them as an adventurer.
