What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I strongly believe that developing a game together with it's community will enhance the quality of the end-product. From the start Yoren has been a passion project, making improvements and adding content based on the communities needs, ideas and wishes. Because Yoren's development team contains of only one developer who does both designing, modeling and programming getting this community feedback is incredible. Early access will incorporate this principle.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“What currently takes up most of the development time is creating the individual dungeons. Each dungeon & boss is hand-crafted in order to give each dungeon a unique feeling. The aim is to release atleast 10 dungeons before release, which will probably take about a year to complete.”

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

“The aim is to release up to 10 different dungeons, a ton of different crafting recipes, spells and runes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the current phase of development Yoren has implemented a dungeon map, an open world exploration area, sandbox practice field, multiple runes, spells, and creatures. All of this content is still highly experimental and is being further developed and updated each day. Please keep in mind that stuttering, crashes and all kinds of miscellaneous issues are to be expected. Currently a majority of gesture runes and spells are completed, with enemy AI and a handful of custom maps in the implementation phase.”

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

“Currently the game's price is set to gradually increase as more new content and features get released.”

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

“Yoren has an active Reddit and Discord community where players are encouraged to share their ideas and experiences with both other community members and the game's developer.”

About This Game

The world of Yoren

The world of Yoren is is a dangerous place filled with mystical creatures, witches and ghouls. You are a lone bounty hunter collecting runes to become the strongest mage of Yoren.

Your journey starts at your hideout deep within Yoren's icy mountains. Here you can safely practice your magic against the dummies in the practice field, or craft potions and wands at your very own forge.

Yoren is currently in early access, this means that some parts of the game are still undergoing development. Currently the game mainly serves as an experimental magic sandbox. Bugs, glitches and performance issues are to be expected.

Before you start looting and exploring the fallen kingdoms and dungeons of Yoren looking for special artifacts and runes you've got to be prepared for anything or anyone crossing your path. All around the world of Yoren are crystals growing. Perfect for brewing potions, or crafting wands. Discover new recipes, ingredients and spells along the way.

Combat, spell casting & runes

Yoren uses cutting-edge VR technology for spell casting. Draw rune shape gestures to select and cast spells, each with their own individual sign and ability. Yoren aims to make use of the newest VR technology, such as the pressure sensitivity in the Valve Knuckles controllers. No button pressing, just squeeze lightly in the controller to activate your spell.

Dungeons & fallen kingdoms

After you've brewed your potions, it's time to enter the dungeon. In Yoren there are several dungeons and fallen kingdoms. In these areas you can collect area-specific loot, and encounter it's boss. With each dungeon or kingdom you beat, you learn a new rune. Each rune has it's own element for example water, fire and blood. Each element has it's own advantages. Some may be more focused on healing, whilst others are far more aggressive depending on your play style.
