What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Player feedback is absolutely vital to making a great game. We wanted to create a solid base and then work with the community to make it the best it can be. We feel that Early Access is the best opportunity to get player feedback and test out new content and features. Early Access is also a great way for players to get the game at a cheaper price.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We think it’ll take about a year to complete everything we have planned. Of course, it’ll depend how Early Access goes as we’ll likely get many great ideas internally and from players’ feedback, for new content and features that we didn’t previously think about.”

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

“For Early Access, we’ll have 3 areas, 2 weapons, 12 skills and over 60 relics. For the full version, we’re planning to add a bunch of new weapons and skills, more relics, 2 new areas, new and deeper meta systems, expand the multiplayer experience as well as implementing the final chapters of the story.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of the game is the first 3 areas, complete with as much polish and as little bugs as possible.”

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

“Yes. We’re planning to increase the price at full launch as more content and features will be available.
Of course, those who purchased during Early Access will not be charged extra at full release.”

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

“We’re very active across our social media channels. Steam and Discord are the best ways for players to communicate with us. They’ll be able to ask questions, provide feedback, suggest new features and more. We’ll also be providing regular updates across those channels so players will know what we’re working on and when they can expect to see them.”

About This Game



In this fast-paced action rogue-lite, play as Ember Knights, the last spark of hope of a universe in turmoil. Praxis, the mad sorcerer, has syphoned the life out of the Ember Tree and fled through the Prime Worlds spreading corruption in his path.

In solo or co-op (up to 4 players), use powerful weapons and skills to hack and slash deadly hordes, defeat epic bosses, free the decaying Prime Worlds and restore energy to the Ember Tree!




Legendary warriors, the Ember Knights are skilled in the wielding of more than a dozen weapons and skills… And many more to come during Early Access!
However, the sword doesn’t make the knight… Through action-packed combat rooms, you’ll need to chain your attacks and perfectly time your skills to unleash fiery attacks.
Agile and fearless, use your pace and dodge to outsmart and counter your enemies!




Create unique and deadly builds by unlocking new skills, equipping game-changing relics and looting rare items. From a damage-resistant crowd-controlling swordsman to a poison spreading archer with summons, forge your own build during your runs.

In co-op, coordinate with your friends to set up combos and synergies between your playstyles.




Beasts, specters, sorcerers, and creatures of all sorts… Fight against dozens of unique monsters each with their own unique attacks and behaviors.

Be prepared to face Elites and Champions, they are more resistant and deadlier versions of Praxis’ devoted minions. You will have to adapt your playstyle to each encounter and learn from your mistakes if you wish to succeed.
Be on your guard as many more challenges will arrive throughout Early Access.




The real challenge for the legendary Knights will lie in the epic bosses and their corrupted variations. From the Royal Phalanx to the Plague Bringer, Praxis will summon anything in his power to stop you.

Try different builds, upgrade your Ember Tree and don't fear death. Persistence will be key!
