What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Studio Bravarda is a very small team of 6 and Terra Pulse is our biggest project to date. Having constant feedback will allow us to better polish each area of the game and refine the general game feel, so we felt like we needed the community's support to make this game the best it can be.

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We envision a 1-year journey for Terra Pulse's Early Access, independent on number of sales or any additional resources acquired by our team (ex: publishers or crowdfunding).

We believe this is the most reasonable amount of time for us to receive invaluable feedback from our players and be able to incorporate it to our roadmap to its fullest, while also polishing it to the best possible level.”

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

“For the Early Access version, Terra Pulse will feature:
- Some of the game's different areas that can be partially explored
- Several different gameplay modifiers for the game's combat ("Mutretas")
- A few of the game's bosses
- Half of Lena's unlockable exploration upgrades
- The first half of the game's narrative

The full release of Terra Pulse will feature:
- The whole world of the game, with all areas being fully explorable
- The rest of the combat modifiers
- All of the game's objectives (primary and secondary) and bosses
- The remaining exploration upgrades for Lena
- The second half of the game's narrative and NPCs

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version will have, at launch, Lena's Base Camp and the first four biomes for the player to explore - some of which are not yet in their complete state.

The player will receive most of the different in-game upgrades, including new moves and gameplay modifiers ("Mutretas"), to the point where the majority of Terra Pulse's mechanics will already be in the game during this stage.

Story-wise, players will have access to the first part of the story, only involving these first few areas and the most story-centric NPCs. We intend for players to be able to pick up the game post-Early Access to continue where they stopped.”

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

“Since we're using a model where updates will be less numerous, but more substantial, we also wanted the price to remain the same through all the Early Access.

Once the Early Access ends and we reach version 1.0, the price of Terra Pulse will be raised.

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

We're keeping our eyes and ears very much open for community feedback - whether it be here, or our Discord server - which we intend to carefully take into consideration for polishing and balancing the game.

We're also active on Twitter, Instagram and Reddit, and will continue to use them to engage with our playerbase and post frequent updates.”

About This Game

A city in ruins... a past to be unraveled


Decades after a disaster that disabled most of the planet's electric artifacts and turned nature against civilization, humans are trying to get back on their feet, keeping away from the cities now infested with mutated creatures. You are Lena, one of the Seiva Hunters, individuals that brave the cities of old using a mix of gunblade arts and capoeira to survive the dangers of the Pulse.

After Lena's mother - a Master Hunter - disappears in an expedition, Lena embarks on a journey leading her to one of the only cities which no hunter has ever returned: Rio de Janeiro.

You will explore the ruins of Rio, discovering the memories of a city that holds many scars - even before the disaster - that may help unravel the mistery behind the event that changed humanity's destiny forever: the Terra Pulse.
