What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Berserk Mode is still in active development, and my goal is to use player feedback to guide Berserk Mode towards being the best game it can be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately 6-12 months.”

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

“My aim is that the full version of the game will be a more cohesive, varied and balanced experience. To achieve this I plan to deliver updates to the game on a monthly basis, which will feature bug fixes, balance changes and additional content. New content could include things like additional weapons, monsters, new environments and additional difficulty modes/ new game+.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early access version of Berserk Mode features the full base game which consists of 11 procedurally generated zones (beat 6 to win), and a progression system featuring unlockable starting equipment where the player can advance up to level 25.”

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

“The plan is to offer a lower price for Early Access, and gradually increase the price as new content and features are added to the game.”

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

“I an inviting community discussion on social media, using Steam community forums, Discord, Reddit, Twitter, and whatever else the community thinks is appropriate.

I will be actively soliciting feedback through these channels to find out what players and enjoying and what they aren't, and use that information to guide my decisions as I add content to and balance the game.

I also aim to add modding as soon as is feasible.”

About This Game

Sometimes to beat the monsters, you have to be the monster. Inspired by classic shooters and modern rogue-likes and -lites, Berserk Mode is an intense run-based shooter with a focus on transformations and high-speed mayhem.

As the Berserker, you must race through deadly fiend-filled zones while your life force drains away. Slaughtering foes restores your health, and builds your
rage to the point that you can transform into mythical beasts - and beyond. Receive curses in exchange for golden rewards, which you can spend on vicious weapons, powerful enchantments and exotic artifacts. Use every advantage at your disposal in this nightmarish challenge that will push your skills - and your humanity, to the very edge.


Race against the clock and bring sudden death to hordes of twisted fiends.


When your bloodlust hits maxes out, transform into legendary beasts to tear your foes apart.


Precious experience expands body and mind. Customise your kit with exotic loadout equipment and Artifacts.


Lose yourself in an ever-changing ode to slaughter. Enter Berserk Mode.

Berserk Mode is inspired by old school shooters from the Duke/Doom era, and modern rogue-like and rogue-lite games that focus on contained play sessions and fun/OP run synergies. Berserk Mode is intended to be a game you can pick up and bash for half an hour to let off some steam, but with enough depth and variety to keep you coming back for more. on the rogue-lite spectrum, I would say it's lighter on meta-progression and more heavily rewards skill and knowledge of the game. Please enjoy your time in Berserk Mode!!
