What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Last Spell is an ambitious game, with a million parameters to keep in mind. Our goal is to make the best roguelite tactical RPG, and to do that, players feedback will be extremely valuable to us. As we will receive them, we’ll be able to collaborate with the players on what they want to see in The Last Spell, and we will keep them in our minds as we move forward with the development cycle.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to keep the game in early access for about a year, but if we want to make the game even more ambitious, this might take longer.”

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

“The full version will enable you to continue playing after the first boss, to reach the end boss, so it should at least double the length of a successful run.

The full version will also contain new maps, new enemies and new difficulty modifiers to make the game a batshit replayable.

We will also make new content depending on community feedback. We have a lot of ideas, but will prioritize what the players find the most impactful to the gameplay. We will surely rework some mechanics, and do a lot of balancing changes.

We want to push new content regularly through the Early Access period to get the most feedback from the community!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All the core features of the game have been implemented and polished. The game is highly playable right now in a satisfactory form.

You can play the first part of the game, which consists of 12 consecutive ingame days + a boss fight. You should be able to reach the boss battle and maybe succeed after a few tentative runs. After that - without spoiling too much - you will be able to try new runs with difficulty modifiers, adding a lot of replayability.”

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

“It’s likely that the game will be priced higher after Early Access.”

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

“Players will be able to communicate any feedback they might have, thanks to “Feature Upvote” and our Discord server. Any feedback that will be brought up by the players will be carefully studied within the team. We will also open a public beta branch, where players will be able to try all the latest changes for the game. Our goal is to make the best roguelite tactical RPG, for and with the players.”

Early Access Roadmap

About This Game



War was rampaging all over the land for decades. In a desperate move to end it all, the mages provoked The Cataclysm. Massive balls of pure magic obliterated nearly everything. A strange purple mist propagated everywhere. They say that those who entered the mist were killed, driven mad, or worse…



Only a few Havens keep up the fight against the hordes of bloodthirsty monsters that come out at night from this damned mist. A few strained heroes protect the walls night after night, until a handful of mages manage to cast The Last Spell and banish all magic from this accursed world. And maybe save us all. Maybe.



The Last Spell is a tactical RPG with roguelite elements. During the days, you’ll have to carefully choose how you will re-build your city and how you’ll position your defenses. Will you prioritize buying a brand new flaming sword, or build a Mana Well to regenerate some priceless Mana after battles?

During night, you’ll have to exterminate all the monsters coming at your walls with a large range of weapons and powers. Level up your heroes, and repeat until the end.





Turn-Based Tactical RPG:

● The whole RPG package: primary stats, secondary stats, skills, perks, traits… and more.
● Build your own classes: upgrade your heroes with stat bonuses and perks. Want to make a canon glass rogue/mage fighting with a gun? Do it!
● Tons of procedurally generated trinkets, armors and weapons, each with their own skillset and playstyle!
● Manage your squad of heroes: they’re strong, but they are few and they have access to limited resources. Healing is rare, so try to find the good balance.

Hordes of Evil:

● Waves of hundreds of enemies to slay, burn, shock and slice! Don’t get overwhelmed.
● Dozens of enemy types with different behaviors, which will get stronger and stronger as you progress.
● Think and adapt: you have to deal with A LOT of enemies, so you want to optimize your damage output with strong AOE attacks. Enemies have various strength and weaknesses that will challenge your wits.



Protect the City:

● Rebuild the city to help you between fights. Get healed, get items, get new heroes. Spend your resources wisely!
● Build up your defenses: walls, traps, towers, catapults… every bit of help is welcomed.
● Protect the circle of magic at all costs! If you lose it, it’s game over.

Roguelite Elements:

● The game is meant to be hard. You will fail… but everytime you do, you’ll grow stronger.
● Procedurally generated Enemy waves, characters, weapons and a ton of unlockables will keep you entertained.
● A full range of difficulty levels to entertain the craziest hardcore players.
