What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have a pretty clear idea of what we want Blightbound to be: a fast paced co-op game with a dark, grim aesthetic. It’s meant to be challenging yet accessible, easy to play but rewarding to master.

Early Access allows us to achieve those goals. By taking feedback, discussing changes, and using everyone’s experiences with the game, we can develop Blightbound to be the best version of itself.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We’re expecting the game to be in Early Access for a year, roughly. This naturally will change should the need arise, but we think it’s a fairly accurate estimate!”

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

“The combat systems, meta progression, and challenging content will all be far more polished and engrossing, encouraging players to play a variety of heroes. We’re planning to greatly increase the number of heroes, increase the number of playable levels and include optional difficulty challenges. We’ll add more challenging rooms for combat and puzzles, more bosses, more items and improve online functionality.

There will be localizations for a huge number of languages, more story content, and a more robust progression system, with more artisans and shops to recruit and build in the refuge to better reflect a player’s progress”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“There is a solid online functionality with couch co-op and online multiplayer and/or a combination of both at once, 9 available heroes from 3 different classes. There are tons of items and a notoriety system that encourages players to play together for longer, thereby increasing rewards. All the heroes are fully voiced and animated, and there are 6 hand crafted levels.”

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

“There is no final decision on price increase but the price may increase during Early Access as more content and features are added.”

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

“The development team at Ronimo plans on playing the game with our community often, taking in feedback directly via the Steam forums, Discord and social media. There will also be a specific form for community members to submit extensive concerns, queries, and comments to us directly in a way we can measure and easily parse.”

About This Game

The world lies in peril. Decades ago, a band of legendary warriors slayed the dreaded Shadow Titan after a long and ferocious struggle, but their celebration was short-lived. The Shadow Titan’s true intentions revealed themselves when from his broken husk flowed the Blight; a corrupting fog that alters any living creature exposed to its evil.

Blightbound is a multiplayer dungeon crawler that tasks three heroes to venture down from their mountain refuge to face the abominations of the Blight - a mysterious and corrupting fog that enshrouds the land.

Explore handcrafted dungeons, fight a terrifying cadre of mystical and monstrous enemies, grab valuable loot and recover fallen heroes to expand your roster of available warriors. Each player will fulfill a specific role on the team - warrior, assassin, or mage - to overcome colossal bosses and solve clever puzzles.

Can you collect and complete all the challenges, and conquer the Blight once and for all?

FEATURES


  • Blightbound is an ever expanding game with new dungeons to explore, new heroes to recover and use, and new loot to retrieve with planned free updates for the community.

  • Collect unique heroes, each with their own skill set, passive abilities, and fully narrated story to complete.

  • Hundreds of unique items to loot and craft to improve each hero and alter their repertoire of attacks and abilities.

  • Build out your refuge atop the mountain by recruiting new artisans to craft more items, fulfill bounties, and training your heroes.

  • Battle through three distinct lands, each with several dungeons to conquer, including the eerie Gravemark, the oppressive Underhold, and precarious Blood Ridge.

  • Distinct class roles that reward team play and powerful ultimate abilites that charge from fulfilling your role. Block damage as a warrior, interrupt enemies as an assassin or heal your allies as a mage.

  • Stunning mix of hand-painted characters and realtime 3D models and lighting effects.
