What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to build a game we know people will enjoy and the main purpose of the Early Access is precisely this - allowing as many players as possible to play the game and engage in conversation with us, provide feedback and make suggestions. The initial Early Access release will contain the first Act of the game, as well the majority of the game's major features. As development continues we will be rolling out updates with more Acts. It is important that we get community feedback to ensure a smooth, and as close to bug-free experience for our launched version.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Estimating an year of Early Access development.”

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

“The Early Access version release contain the first Act of the game, with most of the core features included. Each next Arc will be released in stages during Early Access until the game is ready for a full official launch. Future plans include overall story expansion, voice acting, more biomes, further improvements to the battle system.

Some of features may change or be completely revamped depending on the feedback received from the community and general game improvements.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Most of the core features of Rising Spire are included in the Early Access version. This includes combat, full dialogues, main and side story arcs, day/night cycle, camping, and the weapon mastery progression system.”

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

“The price will not change when we leave Early Access.”

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

“We have set up multiple channels of communication in order to accommodate as many players as possible. As mentioned before, player feedback stands the base of our Early Access journey, so this communication is invaluable to us!

About This Game

Rising Spire is a turn-based RPG that breathes new life into a long loved genre, putting a fresh twist to the classic turn based combat system, story progression, and exploration, while delivering the feel-good and fun spirit of the ‘90s golden titles.

Born from our love for timeless names such as Final Fantasy and Persona, Rising Spire takes you on an epic journey through the harsh world of Malus - a world that seems keen on rejecting any and all gods. Learn what it takes to survive in these untamed wilds, form unexpected alliances, find the balance between humanity and angelic powers and try to survive the divine army trying to kill you at every step.

Rising Spire ditches the traditional class system in favor of a weapons switch system. As you progress through the game, you unlock new weapons, each with its unique abilities, runes and style of gameplay. Tweak your build and find the best combination of weapons to fit your style and lead you to victory.

You, Atlas, are a Nephilim. Not quite human, not quite Divine, you can walk both worlds the same - you can see a soul and you can also touch it. Use this to your advantage and harness the power of your enemies - store their purified souls inside your amulet and unleash their power to ensure victory in your next battles.

The day and night cycle greatly influences your journey and exploration as the environment adapts to the time of day. Some secrets are only revealed in the moonlight, but take caution - while you may see (and avoid) your enemies during the day, the night brings forth random encounters and powerful enemies!

Malus is a living world with a rich but dark past. While Rising Spire explores the classic JRPG themes of adventure, growth, and friendship, it also gives you a glimpse into darker themes such as loss, betrayal and revenge. Between unexpected twists and heavy subjects, you can also expect silly and lighthearted events to pop up. It is a real world, after all.

The story of Rising Spire is told by those around you, and the relationships you form shape your journey. Each character in Malus is created with a rich and full existence - dreams, fears, quirks and bad days. While you have the liberty to go straight forward and rush to the Spire, the full story can only be uncovered by spending time with those you meet, learning about them, helping them and creating powerful bonds. Complete all Character Arcs for the full experience!
