Curator Review

By Indiegames Inside August 31, 2022

“Sehr unterhaltsames, kurzweiliges Action-Roguelike in Pixelart, in dem man in einer Arena Horden von Monstern tötet, neue Zaubersprüche & Verbesserungen erlangt und sich dann erneut dem Kampf stellt.”

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“While the game is feature complete (barring several bonus systems and content planned for free updates post-release), balance is something that needs to be dialed in to ensure the game is a fair, challenging, and enjoyable experience. Balancing a game with a variety of spells, perks, enemies and bosses is difficult to do as a solo developer so I need your feedback!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Originally, I planned to be in Early Acess for only 1-3 months. However, I have chosen to extend it until the end of 2023 at the latest in order to include more features and content, such as controller support, multiple player characters, unique challenge modifiers, and more.”

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

“The full version will have more content (spells, emblems, enemies, etc.) and more quality of life features based on community feedback. I also aim to have the game be better balanced such that it is a challenging but fair experience.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is stable, feature complete, and has a good amount of content to support hours of playtime. Please refer to the "About This" section for all the features that are currently in the game.”

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

“I originally planned not to increase the price when the game leaves early access, but since I have invested much more time and energy in the game, I am considering a modest increased from $3 to $5.”

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

“There is a link to my discord server here on the store page and within the game itself. I encourage you to give your feedback there (or through the Steam community hub) regarding game balance, quality of life features and anything else that you feel would improve Neophyte!”
