What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to work directly with our players during the development process because we believe it will improve our game. A genre like rouge-lite can deliver the best experience only if meets certain criteria and players' expectations. Early Access allows players to participate in the development and allows us to experiment/test certain solutions with a live community. We want to learn how people behave, how they play along and do certain things. Your support will be key in making the game a better experience for everyone.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We aim to be in Early Access for about 1 year. This is the time we estimate we need to deliver all the planned content, as well as things our community will ask for. Take a look at our roadmap displayed below with the upcoming feature updates. To stay updated on the release timing of new content updates, be sure to follow our social channels!”

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

“The full version will include significantly more stuff in three key areas:
  • New content: biomes, enemies, bosses, weapons, and items that will enhance gameplay and increase playtime.
  • New functionalities and features: co-op/multiplayer, vendors, a hub location, and additional perks - their role is to make the gameplay more varied and bump up replayability.
  • Technical improvements: bug fixes, polishing audio, VFX and animations.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“From day one, the team put in a lot of effort to try and provide a top-notch rogue-lite experience and a stable build. Right now, Flame Keeper has all core mechanics in place and 2 biomes playable in full.”

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

“Yes, the game will be cheaper in Early Access. We want to reward those players who joined as early adopters, working with us to better the game. Once the final version will be released, we will likely increase the base price of the game for any new players.”

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

“Your feedback is incredibly valuable to us as we strive to make Flame Keeper the best it can be. We encourage you to share anything that is important to you on our Discord server at https://discord.gg/H8edpEMVT7. We will also be gathering feedback and suggestions from the community here on Steam and our social media channels, as well as into our inbox at support@untoldtales.games.”

About This Game

Become Ignis, a special coal tasked with liberating the world of Orbis, recently overrun by forces of darkness. Luckily, it just so happens that you're trained in the art of mortal combat! Learn how to fight, upgrade your abilities, venture through increasingly hostile worlds, and restore the Eternal Flame.

Adapt and take on enemies using a multitude of moves and attacks including punch combos, fiery dashes, wide area-of-effect stomps, and powerful finishers that deal decisive damage. But don't get too reckless - smart stamina usage is essential. Each biome in Flame Keeper is inhabited by unique foes and obstacles of increasing difficulty. Consult the trusty Bestiary as you unlock insight into the strengths and weaknesses of your enemies.

It's not enough to let your fists do the talking. Sometimes... you need a little pick-me-up. Upgrade Ignis to your heart's desire via skills and passive abilities. Collect seeds from defeated enemies to learn new skills and complete specific tasks to receive runes and unlock helpful passive abilities. Mix and match to create tons of different builds!

To restore the Eternal Flame, you must scour each environment for what remains of its energy and transfer it back into each stage's Fire Camp. Here's the twist: the energy you collect also acts as your health. You need to deplete it to charge up each Fire Camp, but you also have to stay healthy to explore ever deeper. Find the right balance and discover your best way to play.

At the start of each level lies Vulpis Village. The Vulpis are friends to a brave charcoal like yourself, so they're happy to provide a service. Here you can rest, enhance abilities, rebuild and upgrade structures thanks to the resources you collect. The village changes along with your progress and opens up all-new gameplay features each time.
