What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe we have reached the point where we have an enjoyable game but are curious as to what parts of it we should further develop and create more content for, and we believe having community feedback will be very important for this.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning for the game to be in Early Access for six months.”

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

“Here are some features the full version will have:
- An improved combat system with more useable skills and types of units.
- A expanded catalog of wildlife and natural wonders for the player to discover.
- Tools for the players to create their own scenarios.
- Fully developed quests for the different towns with improved narrative and goals.
- More NPCs with interesting dialogs populating the towns.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of NovaMundi: The Spear of Chaquén is a completely playable game, you will be able to experience in full the exploration of the Muisca highlands, traveling to the different towns and making your party stronger while you survive increasingly dangerous battles. We believe completing a single session of the game may take around 2 to 3 hours once you have mastered the game (and of course, you can replay the game indefinitely finding new challenges every time!)

The player can even Save the game!”

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

“As a way to thank you for your support during Early Access, you will acquire the game at a reduced price. We are planning to raise the price by about 50% for the 1.0 release.”

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

“The community can get involved via the Steam forums, the discord channel, and also a tracker for RFEs (Requests for Enhancement) where we keep track of the ideas for improvements and content.”

About This Game

What is NovaMundi?

NovaMundi is an open world procedural exploration game with tactical combat, in which you lead a group of explorers and warriors to traverse the dangerous lands of the Andes in the XVI Century. Build your reputation to recruit people in towns, and barter for supplies to survive and unite your people against a powerful invader.

The many populations of the Muisca territory stand divided and are constantly threatened by the nearby Panche and Muzo people. In this scenario, a run-down group of Spanish explorers has reached their land and seeks to profit from these divisions and conflicts to make alliances and ultimately gain control of it. It's up to your group to unite the Muisca and prepare for the upcoming invasion.

Procedural roguelite in the Andean mountains

NovaMundi uses procedural generation to create a new map every time. Mountains and rivers will make it difficult to travel the lands of the Muisca, no matter how many times you’ve explored them. When your party dies, it’s time to explore again.

On the way, you’ll meet the natives and participate in their struggles, explore caves; holy sites for the Muisca now unpredictable due to the upheaval caused by the Spanish invaders in the land. All this while you fight hunger, disease, beasts, and humans.

Key Features

  • Runs packed with content: Focus on the main quest to unite the Muisca confederation against the European invaders, help the natives in their jobs, explore procedurally generated caves fighting beasts and mythical creatures from the Muisca culture, search for exotic animals from the Andean mountains in the paramos, jungles, and swamps of the region and much more. You’ll need several runs to experience it all!
  • A unique setting: NovaMundi takes place during the Spanish conquest of South America in the XVI century. Meet one of the cultures that originated the legend of “El Dorado”: the Muisca.
  • Perks to tailor your experience: Is the game too hard? Too easy? Maybe you’d like to freshen the experience… NovaMundi has a perk system that allows you to tailor your experience to your wants and needs instead of an arbitrary difficulty system. Maybe you don’t want to play with diseases, or you’d like the challenge of only being able to use one kind of troop, or starting without any gold. Maybe you’re a fan of Andean wildlife and would like to recruit the help of jaguars and spectacled bears. You can do it with perks.
  • Real-time battles with big warbands and big consequences: While combat is not the focus of the game, NovaMundi has a satisfying combat system in which you can battle many different units against big enemy groups. Battle several dozen Muisca warriors of several classes, archers, and beasts against Panche raiders and Spanish invaders. Face archers against melee fighters and protect your frontline using guardians. Each individual is unique; if wounded they will need several days to heal, and if they die… There is no escape from the cold embrace of death.
