In a labyrinth surrounded by vicious monsters, Explorers must rely on their Lasso to survive! Capture and tame ANY monster to leap, glide, surf, tunnel and websling through a treacherous, patchwork maze. This roguelike/metroidvania seems cute, but it’s a deceptively difficult bullet-hell challenge!

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Patch Quest already contains 10 of the 12 planned zones. Adding the last 2 zones will take us up to version 1.0, along with some new & unique mounts. I've been releasing updates for a while now, and you can see the game's month-by-month progress over the last 3 years on the Patch Quest YouTube channel.

Patch Quest is my passion project. Thanks so much for supporting development! - Lemon”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I'm planning to release content packs for at least a year from launch. But since the game is easy to expand, I could develop for as long as there's a demand from players.”

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

“The key difference will be lots of new mounts and new dungeons. I'll be fleshing out the island of Patchlantis so there's more to explore, discover and tame!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Every feature listed in the "About This" section has already been implemented. The early game is complete, and a placeholder ending has been added. So throughout early access, I'll be fleshing out the mid-game with more zones, mounts and challenges. And once that's done I'll be adding a "true ending".”

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

“The game's base price might increase at the end of early access.”

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

“Please come visit the Patch Quest Community Discord server! It's a public server that you can find easily via Google search, and it's growing all the time.

I run a daily devlog there, so you can keep up to date with development plans You also can suggest additions and changes to the game. I can't promise to implement your suggestions, but I will promise to read and consider them!

I want to make a fun game that loads of people enjoy playing - so your feedback is very important to me.”

About This Game

Patch Quest is a one of a kind roguelike / bullet-hell / metroidvania / monster-taming game!
This delightful yet punishing, beautifully crafted hybrid of game genres will lasso you in with its fast paced gameplay and keep you coming back to expand your monster collection and fight your way through a shuffling, patchwork maze.

Patchlantis is a twisting labyrinth, filled with dangers that can be transformed into your strength. Get your lasso ready to catch any monster of your choice, turning foe into ally! Their skills become yours as you blast a path through this shuffling maze. Unlock gates, open shortcuts and challenge dungeons to venture deeper into the island's underbelly . And perhaps you can even unravel the mystery of why Patchlantis fell…

  • Explore a shuffling patchwork maze where every run feels fresh.
  • Lasso the monsters, collecting them all. Level them up and keep them as pets!
  • Gather ammo fruits and blend them into powerful ammo smoothies.
  • Collect over 200 unique plants and minerals!
  • Earn exploration gadgets that permanently expand your mechanics.
  • Unlock gates and open shortcuts, to reach deeper and more dangerous zones.
  • You’ll need to make use of everything you find to survive out here!

This island is crawling with dangerous monsters. Fortunately, you came prepared with your monster-taming lasso!
You can mount every monster in the game, and each species has a unique set of skills. Some of them can fly, or swim, or leap across hazardous terrain. And all of them can pack a serious punch in combat!

  • Buzzerker can launch itself like a harpoon
  • Sandamander can tunnel underground, to safety
  • Torrentoise has a hard, reflective shell
  • Velostrich has lightning-fast reflexes
  • Triantula can zip around on a silk bungee cord
  • Discover more than 50 monster species, with an even greater variety of subspecies!

As you ride and fight with them you’ll level up your affinity and gain new mount skills.
You can even send your monster back to Base Camp, to keep as a pet. Raise their bond by sprucing up your camp with the right plants, then summon them while exploring the world.

Once home to a lost civilisation, Patchlantis has now been fully reclaimed by nature. Fierce monsters, rugged terrain and booby-trapped ruins are all a fact of life, here. Even the island's patchwork terrain will get shuffled each night by a powerful storm!

The best route through each region will change on every attempt. So expanding and consulting your map will give you the edge. To reach the island's deepest corners, you’ll need to open gates, clear dungeons and unlock shortcuts.

You can draw power from the mystical plants and ruins within the island, giving you buffs that will help you carve your path. And by cataloguing the island's wildlife, you can unlock new gadgets that boost your gameplay options. Every single run will help you get a little bit stronger, until you can face even the toughest beasts and trickiest challenges.

Nobody said the life of an explorer was easy! But by bending the monsters, plants and terrain of Patchlantis to your advantage, you'll have a real shot at charting this long-lost maze.
