What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is mainly developed by one person, which means getting feedback early, is very important in making it the best experience it can be. The core gameplay loop that has been developed over various betas has been finished now. The game now features enough content and runs stable enough to release it to a broader audience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The current plan is to stay in early access until all features that are planned have been developed. Since the start of early access, a lot of new features have already been announced that we never thought we would add, like Multiplayer for example. This is why we can't give a perfect estimate and will need to adjust the release date of the full version once more features have finished development. Furthermore, since this is a roguelite game, there are endless possibilities content wise. We have a lot of ideas that we want to realize which may take a considerable amount of time. We expect to have most of the content finished around June 2024.”

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

“There are a lot of things that still on the todo list, which have not yet been implemented into the game which include:
  • More dungeons and more alternate paths
  • More items, achievements,enemies,bosses,journal pages and general gameplay mechanics
  • A hardmode that makes the game significantly harder for all players that want a real challenge
  • A true final boss with epilogue lore
  • Daily runs with a leaderboard
  • Better documentation on the modding tools and more modding capabilities
  • General polish and replayability improvements

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Please refer to the "About This" section for more details.”

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

“There are no plans to increase the price of the game after the early access phase.”

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

“We listen to all feedback the community has about the game to improve our development process.

Players that want to leave feedback, suggest new features, or report bugs are always welcome.
The best places to do this is on the Steam Community hub or the official ADVR Discord at:”

About This Game

Grab your gear and delve into the dungeons of this rogue-lite dungeon crawler, Ancient Dungeon VR, and uncover its secrets.

The Ancient Dungeon is known throughout the land; a place of malice and danger to all but a few brave souls. These men and women - adventurers, explorers, even scholars - enter the dungeon in pursuit of legendary fortunes and objects of immense power, all believing themselves more capable than those who have gone before...but few return.

You would follow them? So be it, but take care: the dungeon will twist and shift behind as you pass, confounding any escape. To survive, you must find a way through, for there is no way back. Fight through hordes of different monsters with your sword, throwing knife, or crossbow, and collect tons of different powerups along the way to improve them and change their behaviour. Every dungeon you visit is procedurally generated, which means, each run is different from the last one! Do you have what it takes to find out what lies below?

Randomly Generated Dungeons

All dungeons you encounter in your playthrough are randomly generated and filled with traps, secrets, semi-bosses and tons of different kinds of loot. The deeper you go the more dangerous the environment and the enemies will get. There are differently themed dungeons that you'll encounter, for example the Overgrown Gatehouse, that features a lot of vegetation and plant based enemies or the Forgotten Library, where magical creatures reside.

Upgrade your character and aid the research of The Grand Library

  • Unlock and upgrade new dungeon features by interacting with The Acolyte at base camp
  • Unlock and upgrade new weapon features by interacting with The Blacksmith
  • Complete the Item Compendium by collecting every single pickup contained in the dungeon
  • Reveal the true history of The Ancient Dungeon by searching the dungeon for long-lost writings and histories
  • Complete specific tasks in The Ancient Dungeon to aid the research of The Grand Library

Coop Multiplayer with up to 4 players!

Tons of different item upgrades:

Collect and unlock over 100 different upgrades, ranging from simple helper upgrades, such as companion wisps to gamechanging upgrades such as exploding, homing, throwing knives. Create crazy item synergies if you know what you are doing!

An interactable world

Use the environment to your advantage, cut your way through grass realistically, destroy pots and throw or drink potions.

Tons of different enemies!

During your runs you will encounter tons of different enemies, many unique to their respective dungeon type. Encounter wights, slimes, skeletons, wisps, flying skulls, champion enemies and more! The combat in game is physics based, which means your melee and ranged strikes feel extremely satisfying.
