“It's like Thief... with guns!”

Early Access Game

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

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“At New Blood we pride ourselves on building our games WITH our community of players and Gloomwood is no different. Since our initial demo in 2020 we have incorporated player feedback into the development of Gloomwood and aim to continue doing that throughout the rest of the game's development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Gloomwood will remain in Early Access until it is considered both content complete and polished in a state we consider v1.0. There is no estimated time for how long that will take but given the amount of game left to be built and our Early Access track record with games like DUSK, AMID EVIL and ULTRAKILL it will be a year or two at least.”

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

“The full version of Gloomwood will contain every district of the game world as well as every weapon, item, enemy and feature that is not yet in the Early Access version.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of Gloomwood is a very polished introduction to the game that contains the fishery, cliffside caves and mines, cliffs, and lighthouse parts of the game world. All these areas, as well as the visuals, mechanics, items, weapons and enemies present within them, are in a state polished enough for a commercial release.”

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

“Yes. The game will start at an introductory price of $19.99 USD during Early Access and work its way up to $29.99 USD for a v1.0 release. Buy early, save more - taffer.”

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

“We always involve our community in the creation of our games and we invite players to voice feedback on the Steam forums as well as in our Discord server at Discord.gg/NewBlood so that we can incorporate their feedback into our development process.”

About This Game

Gloomwood is a stealth horror FPS that follows your mysterious abduction to a forgotten, twisted Victorian metropolis in the midst of a horrifying transformation. Wield your canesword and take to the shadows as you uncover the accursed mystery hidden within the fog.

The producers of DUSK, AMID EVIL, ULTRAKILL and FAITH bring you a frightening, gothic immersive sim full of haunted streets, dark tunnels and decadent mansions.


  • An intricate, hand-crafted city with freeform exploration - from towering rooftops down to hidden passages, the routes you take and paths you make, are your choice.
  • A detailed stealth and sound system that tracks your light visibility and propagates noise accurately through the world. Tread lightly. Or prepare to get loud.


  • A unique arsenal to meet any situation - a stealthy canesword, six-shot revolver, folding shotgun, hand-placed traps, rope-slinging harpoon rifle and more.
  • In-depth player interactivity, from leaning to eavesdrop, peeking through door cracks, checking the bullets in your firearms and mantling onto ledges.


  • A mob of ghastly denizens and monsters with acute senses, like the sharp-clawed Crowmen and the fearsome, cadaver-seeking Corpse Duster.
  • Gloomwood is full of objects to pick up, throw, climb, smash and use to your advantage.
    There is more to this city than you can possibly imagine...
