What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Black Geyser is a vast and complex roleplaying game in development by a small indie team, the game is designed to immerse the player in a medieval fantasy world infested by greed. Designing the world takes time, but we also want to open the world to players to gain valuable feedback on what systems do and don’t work.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We aim to release the full version of Black Geyser in Q1 2022. The exact release date may change depending on the feedback we receive from players.”

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

“The final version of Black Geyser will include the full playable story of the game, alongside additional quests and companions to access. We hope to add more story content and polish to the game and expand on some of the already existing game systems, such as crafting and skills. We are aiming to have these items broken down into two phases:

EA Phase 2

  • Northern areas
  • Backer rewards: custom spells, random encounters, items, plants
  • Temple system
  • Optimizations and performance enhancements
  • Chapter 3 of main quest

EA Phase 3 (Full Game Launch)

  • Stronghold System
  • Desert Areas
  • Improved item mechanics
  • Full greed system
  • Pets
  • Optimizations and performance enhancements
  • Deeper roleplay options in quests
  • New item types
  • Improvements to character models
  • Visual improvements
  • Chapter 4 (final chapter) of the main quest

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The scope of Black Geyser has increased since we first arrived on Kickstarter. Based on fan feedback, it has increased in scope, with a larger world and more features. The Early Access version will be a fully playable roleplaying game with most in-game areas, and some of the main story. The introduction area and first two chapters of the game will be playable on Early Access' launch, with two more still in the making. Most in-game systems such as combat, skills, spells and crafting are finished and in the balancing and polishing stage.”

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

“We are planning to offer the game at a lower price while in Early Access.”

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

“We are looking forward to receiving feedback from our players on our Steam Forums and reviews, as well as on our Discord server. We will be implementing changes to content and balancing based on the feedback from the community in an effort to make the best experience possible for our players. We believe that player feedback is critical to the success of the game and we plan to fully integrate suggestions and fixes based on what you tell us!”

About This Game


Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness. Explore a land plagued by war, pestilence and mysterious abductions, and uncover the hidden legacy of your birth. Recruit powerful allies to your cause; achieve your goals through sorcery, stealth, a silver tongue or brute force; and discover the truth of the Black Geyser.

Developed by a small indie team and inspired by cRPG classics like Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale, Black Geyser features challenging real time tactical combat with pause, deep lore and memorable companions, all set in a sprawling, unique fantasy world.




Black Geyser is set in Yerengal, a world where dark gods have brought nothing but venality and greed.

For centuries, the Devil-god Rothgor has spread fear and terror, waging war upon the mortal races. Eventually banished, the nation of Isilmerald has enjoyed a time of peace and prosperity. Yet discontent has begun to fester once more, and a bloody civil war is brewing between the capital Isilbright and the wealthy mining town of Deron-Guld.





Choose from 5 playable races (Human, Dwarf, Elf, Feldegug and Rillow) and 13 unique classes from 4 class groups (Priest, Outlaw, Warrior, and Wizard).





Watch combat play out in real time with the option to pause the action and issue new orders when needed. Control the battlefield using dozens of spells and skills, all while customising your party with a wide range of weapons, armors and items.
