Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Because your feedback is instrumental in shaping Netherguild's development: For balancing, playtesting, and growing the game throughout early access.

I'm also hoping sales during Early Access could help me splurge out on music (with lots of soundtracks for different areas and fights!) and potentially hiring outside help if / when needed (like improving Netherguild's UI, potentially), but that comes mostly as a bonus.
I'm planning to finish and release Netherguild regardless of Early Access sales.

And finally, I'm a solo developer- so it's a lot more fun for me to develop the game alongside a community of people who are excited about it, rather than alone!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“2-4 years, most likely towards the longer end.”

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

“The full version is planned to have:
  • A complete faction system
  • More classes
  • A whole lot of areas and floors to explore
  • A complete story
I'd also really like to add:
  • One and a half handed / two handed melee weapons
  • Building upgrading system
  • Enemy encyclopedia (so players have to memorize less and can just check instead)

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently Netherguild has 3 floors (/levels) within one zone.
I plan there to be 2-3 zones on early access with 5-7 floors.
Each zone has its own enemies, oddities and loot.”

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

“Yes- the price will go up as more content is added. It might double (or more) on a final release.”

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

“Community feedback will be massively important and will help shape Netherguild.
I'm especially looking forward to player help with these following things:
  • Balancing: Community feedback could help me dispense buffs and nerfs when needed, to ensure Netherguild is hard, yet fun and rewarding.
  • Playtesting: And helping ensure Netherguild is always a smooth, bug-free experience to all players.
  • New Content: Player ideas have and will continue to shape Netherguild's world and playable content- with enemies, floors, abilities, events, classes and oddities.
I always welcome player feedback, via Netherguild's discord, Steam forums and social media.

About This Game

Netherguild is a turn-based tactical roguelite dungeon-crawler, where you command expeditions below the earth in a desperate attempt to cure a strange plague.
Explore, camp, and fight as far as you can before heading back to resupply.
What will you discover underground?

Key Features:




Bonfires:
Construct campfires underground, rest and eat next to them. The food items you consume affect your guild members and the rest of your expedition, with passive effects, permanent changes and more!




Combat:
Learn how to defeat different enemies (and when to flee) in combat. Hitting enemies requires no RNG - so you can depend on your abilities, but watch out for tricky enemies that are immune to your strategy, unfortunate circumstances and surprises!
In Netherguild, combat is another form of resource management- how can you prevent your characters from getting hurt, or receiving harmful debuffs? When is it the right time to use a powerful ability, when should you save it for later?




Underground Events:
Different oddities you find underground will present you with various choices that may affect your expedition and the game world at large.

Additional Features:

  • Roguelite with Persistence: Keep your characters at the end of each expedition (if they survive), level them up and equip them over time.
  • Replay Value: Random equipment, random character backgrounds with different skills and procedurally generated levels every time you descend underground mean that playthroughs feel different every time.
  • Dungeon Crawling Resource Management: Powerful abilities have a limited amount of uses. Your characters have limited inventory space. What is more important? The priceless loot you bring up back to the surface, or the firewood logs that let you descend even deeper?
  • Original Game World: Netherguild may be fantasy, but don't expect it to play by genre conventions at all; No Orcs, no Elves, and no wizards casting fireballs. Expect to find strange biospheres and denizens far underground.
  • Cute Voxel Aesthetics: Contrasted by a story with serious themes, as you face against plague and conspiracy!
  • Solo Developed: I'm always happy to get feedback, suggestions and inspiration from players. You can reach me through various channels such as my twitter, the Netherguild discord and Netherguild Steam forum. If you love Netherguild, dislike something about it, or you have a fantastic idea you think should be added to the game, please let me know! :D
