What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to make The Slormancer the best game it can be, and we know that working with our community and listening to players' suggestions during Early Access will be key to achieve this.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Since The Slormancer is our very first game and since there are only two of us, it is difficult to accurately estimate how long Early Access will last.

The Slormancer will be released as a final version when we feel the game is complete and polished, which may take some time. We have a lot of content that we still want to add and new features. Not to mention what needs to be tweaked or modified during Early Access.

But expect approximately two years.”

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

“The final version of The Slormancer will feature a complete adventure and rich end-game content. We plan to extend the bestiary with new enemy types and new bosses. New Legendary items, skills, and Achievements will also be introduced.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Players can already play 3 complete classes up to level 40 (out of 100), as well as access the first two tiers (out of 7) of the general skill tree of the game and allocate skill points for their class. More than 30 (out of 120) Slorm Reapers, which are unique weapons, are available to each class, as well as their primordial version.

Players can also find all types of equipment in the game, with dozens of different stats, as well as materials for the upgrade and crafting systems, which are also already present. 80 Legendary items, with unique effects, are also available (and we plan to add many, many more of those).

Most of the game's features are also integrated: dialogues, cinematics, non-player characters, combat, tutorials, the possibility to play with the mouse, the keyboard or the controller, everything is there.

Nevertheless, players will only have access to one act of the story (out of 5) for now, which represents an experience of a few hours. Endgame content is present but also limited, as is the diversity of environments and the variety of enemies.
These are very important points for us and will be our priority during the first phases of Early Access.

However, the gameplay loop is complete: Players can now embark on an adventure, defeat monsters, find loot, level up, improve their skills, and start again, increasing the difficulty if they wish to.

Despite our best efforts, the game probably still has some bugs. Also, skills, items and enemies most likely lack proper balancing.”

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

“We expect to increase the price of the game by an undetermined amount when it comes out of Early Access.”

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

“Since our first demo, we've made it a point to listen to all the relevant feedback from our players, which has already helped The Slormancer move in the right direction.
Players will be able to provide feedback on our Discord (https://discord.com/invite/tkYxSuB), our Reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/Slormancer/), or our Steam Community Page (https://steamcommunity.com/app/1104280/discussions/) where we will strive to be both accessible and receptive.”

KEY FEATURES

Warning: Some features listed below are not yet available in the current version of Early Access and will be added later on.

  • An irrational story!
    You were born with absolutely no skill whatsoever, and yet you find a way to be the last hope of the realm as the enigmatic Slormancer and his incompetent underling try to conquer the world once again. How great. But like your grandfather once told you: "You might not have the talent but you have the will."
  • Three unique Classes
    Unlock and master more than 200 unique Abilities, Upgrades and Passives for every class. Each active Ability has its own skill tree, allowing you to create unique combinations.
  • Harness the power of your Ancestral Legacy
    Choose your Legacy and inherit ancient powers among more than 150 Element-related Skills and Passives in the Ancestral Skill Tree.
    Master Fire and summon powerful elementals, use Ice to freeze your foes, convoke Thunder and create massive storms, embrace the power of Light or make one with Shadow, it's up to you!
  • Unique Weapons
    120 unique and game-changing weapons available for every class. Each Slorm Reaper is a unique and priceless weapon that you can loot during your adventure. Once found, wield it to benefit from its powerful effect, level it up, and eventually evolve it to a greater form.
  • Endless quest for Epic Loot!
    Find and collect normal, magic, rare and epic items with completely random properties but also shiny legendary items with more than 80 unique affixes.
    Then enhance them with an infinite upgrade system!
  • Collect and Progress
    Unlock Skills, Upgrades and Ancestral Abilities, find epic items, and collect Slorm Reapers to create deadly combinations that suit your own play style!
    The Slormancer is all about Collection and Progression so you can switch at any point between any skills you’ve previously unlocked, Slorm Reapers and items you’ve previously found, even between the 3 classes of the game! This unique Flexibility allows you to swap between different combinations and play styles in the blink of an eye, whenever you feel like it.
  • Procedural Adventures!
    Defeat lots of unique monsters, elites and bosses with more than 40 different affixes through procedurally generated adventures and hunt down The Slormancer’s Warlords through 7 different upgradable environments. There are always things to do and monsters to kill! And it's always different!
