Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access gives you the ability to help shape Assault on the Necrospire. Your feedback will directly impact how the game is developed and the direction it goes in. While Assault on the Necrospire is in a playable state, the final floor is still in development and the game may contain bugs. If you would rather play a game that feels totally complete, please wait until further on in the early access period or for the final release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Assault on the Necrospire will be in early access for around 6 months.”

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

“The full version of Assault on the Necrospire will feature the final floor and Necromancer boss fight, as well as additional items, rooms and secrets. It will also be released with an optional hard mode, aimed at players who want an extra challenge. Hard mode will alter gameplay mechanics such as room layouts and AI behaviours, rather than granting enemies flat damage bonuses. Venturing through the Necrospire will grant permanent unlocks so progression can be felt through different runs.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Assault on the Necrospire currently features 8 of the 9 floors, 140 items, 8 unique boss fights and over 100 room layouts. Additional content and features are being added on a regular basis. Whilst great care has been taken to ensure the game is stable, some bugs may still exist.”

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

“The game's price will not change after early access. All early access purchasers will receive the full game automatically upon release.”

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

“With countless combinations of items, spells and relics, community feedback will be hugely important for striking the right level of balance in the game. New features may be introduced or existing ones may be removed depending on the responses from the community. Whatever your thoughts, please get in touch.”

Co-op Multiplayer - 28/2/17

Hi all,

I'm very excited to announce that in addition to the previously announced features, patch 1.2 will also include coop multiplayer. I've been holding off this announcement until I had a working prototype and I'm pleased to say that's now the case. In 1.2 you'll be able to team up with an online partner and venture through the Necrospire together.

Here's a brief FAQ of what to expect:

How many players can be in the same game?
Multiplayer will be limited to 2 players.

How will shops and items work?
Each player will have their own inventory/equipment, but the items that spawn in the Necrospire will be shared. To accommodate this, item spawns will be higher.

Will the difficulty change?
The Necrospire will be toughened up to account for two players.

Can different players be in different rooms?
When a player exits a room, the other player will also exit. Likewise going up a floor will cause both players to ascend.

What happens when a player dies?
If you die, your partner will also suffer the same fate!

Will pickups be shared?
Health globes, fonts etc. will be shared amongst all players.

Closing comments

To connect to another player you'll need to enter their IP address and port. While more involved features such as matchmaking and a server browser would certainly be nice, I feel that it would be too much work at this stage. Depending on the popularity of multiplayer I may revisit this in the future.

While this extra work means that 1.2 will take longer to release, I hope that what it adds to the game will make up for it. It's difficult to give an accurate ETA on this patch but I'll let you know when I have more details.

If you have any thoughts or suggestions, please let me know in the comments.

Patch 1.2 preview - 7/2/17

Hi all,

It's been a couple of weeks since the release of patch 1.1 and I'd like to let you know about what's to come. The next update (patch 1.2) will feature floor 9 and the Necromancer boss fight, along with new items, balance changes and various bug fixes. I've also been working on controller support, however this has proven to be more work than expected due to the mouse code being heavily ingrained. Due to this I can't guarantee if 1.2 will feature controller support, but I'm hopeful that it will make it in.

If you have any thoughts or suggestions, please leave a comment!

About This Game

Assault on the Necrospire is a roguelike with an emphasis on interesting loot and character building. The Necromancer has destroyed the wizard order, leaving only you alive. You must venture through the ever changing Necrospire to bring him to justice.

Discover a wealth of loot
The Necrospire is brimming with loot, granting powerful (and sometimes unusual) effects. Mythical items await those able to reach the highest floors of the Necrospire, bestowing extraordinary abilities.

Define your build
Choose how you want to fight with an inventory system that allows you to change your build on the go.

Harness the power of magic
Equip spell tomes to modify your attacks. Slow your enemies, burn them to a crisp or even freeze them in time. Up to 5 spell tomes can be equipped at once, combining their effects together.

Up the challenge for greater rewards
Enable difficulty modifiers such as double bosses and exploding enemies, making the Necrospire far more dangerous but increasing your chances of finding rarer loot.

Equip ancient relics
Use powerful relics to summon companions to your side, teleport yourself across a room, fire deadly volleys of arrows and much, much more.

Face challenging enemies
Powerful foes await you as you climb the Necrospire. Use your equipment, spells and relics to even the odds.

A new experience each time
Each journey into the Necrospire is randomly generated; no two runs will be the same.
