What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to launch the game under Early Access to gather feedback from the community and build the best game experience possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate that the game will stay in Early Access for about 6 months.”

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

“We expect the final game to have all the features of the early access version plus a more balanced and polished experience as well as extra content. We expect to add a few more levels to the final version and a new game mode.

In general terms, we expect an additional hour of playable content to be featured in the final version.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is in early access, however the gameplay mechanics have been polished to a final product stage and the character designs and character mechanics that are already present in the game are considered final for those characters. Nonetheless, there is room for improvement based on feedback. Now where the 'early' keyword really matters is in the quantity of content and player progression as well as the polishing of multiple systems.

In the current version you can:
  • Play two different game modes. Story Mode and Survival. Both with four unique levels to put your skills to test.
  • Fight three types of enemies with unique abilities.
  • Experience a frenetic sense of combat that allows you to express your play style with four distinct magics.
  • Master Revnar´s abilities as a Guardian of Einar.
  • Listen to the complete soundtrack, based on folk and nordic music.

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

“No. Nerthus: Einar´s Fate is a free product to showcase the abilities of the development team as game developers.”

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

“We expect to gather feedback from the community directly from the Steam page, and also from our social networks, and incorporate that feedback into the final product, specially in terms of how the game feels and plays.”

About This Game

In a world ruled by magic and legends, the Varoa Viss, an ancient order of mystic guardians, ensured that the balance was maintained. But one fateful day the unimaginable happened, someone stole the heart of Nerthus, breaking the balance and corrupting all of Einar's creatures.

You will play as Revnar, one of the most venerable guardians of the order and your mission will be to find and return the heart to its sacred place. On your way, you will fight against the once peaceful creatures that are now plunged into chaos and violence, traveling through the land of Einar and its fantastic sceneries, purifying the corruption and restoring balance to the world.

In the current version you can:
  • Play the Story Mode through the first four levels of the game.
  • Play those same levels in Survival Mode, facing relentless hordes and multiple missions every game.
  • Experience a frenetic sense of combat that allows you to express your playstyle with four distinct elemental magic runes.
