What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Right now Urtuk is already really fun to play and has dozens of hours of content. Early Access allows us to gather important feedback to make the game even better.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're currently estimating that the game would be in Early Access for about a year.”

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

“The full version of Urtuk will be more polished and have more content. Essentially the full version will be a more refined version; there shouldn't be any drastic changes or fundamental differences in core game mechanics.
The full version will have a larger variety of enemies, items, and areas to discover and battle quests. The world of Urtuk will receive more lore in the form of text hints and visual illustrations.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is playable and is polished to a nearly-finished state. The content you can expect in the game is feature complete in terms of what is listed in the section "About This Game". We believe you can play Urtuk for at least 30+ hours before you discover all elements and mechanics. We did put a great deal of effort into "mystery & exploration" for the player.”

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

“Our plan is to release the Early Access version with a lower price, and we'll probably raise the price as we approach the full release.”

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

“We're looking for feedback from players so that we can fix bugs, design issues and so on. We're interested in seeing how the gameplay experience changes as players get better at the game, and adjust the game to our best capability so that the experience stays interesting for both new and more experienced players.
We already have a stable players base, and all our communication is done in Discord and in the Steam forums.

About This Game

  • Procedurally generated survival campaign
  • Extract character upgrades directly from your fallen enemies
  • All graphical assets are hand drawn, from characters, monsters and objects, to the world map and battlefields

Dynamic battles

Ram your enemies into environmental hazards


Off you go!

Characters


Extract skills and traits from fallen enemies and apply them to your units! These custom abilities can totally change a character's role in combat. Extracted abilities include pushing the enemy on a critical hit, retaliating when being hit, avoiding a lethal strike, and performing a lifestealing counterattack against your foe!
Your characters also learn new skills when executing specific actions in battles. Pay attention and be rewarded!

Story


The game world is a place of toil, suffering and darkness. There are no elves, dwarfs, dragons or other classical fantasy creatures. There are some light magical elements, but no overwhelmingly powerful sorcerers either.
Many centuries past, Giants roamed the world, living peacefully alongside humans until the war between the two species left the Giants extinct. Some years ago, a cabal of scientists discovered a process to extract the Life Essence of the ancient Giants from their bones.

This mystical fluid promised to cure many different diseases, mend grievous wounds, and perhaps even halt the aging process. Unfortunately, instead of improving the health of the subject, very often the serum would have the opposite effect, inflicting a mutation or lethal disease. Until the exact nature of this wondrous medicine can be determined, experiments on unwilling subjects continue.

The story begins when the main character, Urtuk, escapes from the Sanatorium, a facility where these experiments are carried out on abducted commoners. Urtuk suffered a severe mutation from his exposure to the Life Essence, and with every passing day his health worsens. Now he wanders the world in search of a cure. Unless he can find a way to counter his evolving mutation, Urtuk must eventually die.
