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, extended story and as well as extra content.

We plan to add at least one additional level to include new enemies, items and bosses. We hope to include new abilities for Uros that will allow him to reach the domain of the god of nightmares to have a final fight and lock him up forever.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is in an ALPHA and early access state right now, however the gameplay mechanics have been implemented to an advanced stage, and the character designs and character mechanics that are already present in the game are considered final for those characters. There is room for improvement based on feedback. Now where the 'early' keyword really matters is in quantity of content and player progression as well as polishing of systems such as UI and visual feedback.

The game currently features:
  • Travel through the world of nightmares with a metroidvania experience with a total of 5 levels with a different theme in each one.
  • Manage to rescue the souls trapped in the world of nightmares and close the portal that connects to the real world.
  • Fight against 13 types of enemies.
  • Master Uros with new abilities that allow you to advance through the levels.
  • Fight the first two bosses of the game. Lisovik, the Torturer and Strogobor, God of Nightmares.
  • Experience a fluid sensation of movement that allows you to enjoy frenetic action.
  • Listen to a complete dark and epic soundtrack inspired by the Slavic culture.

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

“No. Uros: a Trip Through the Shadows 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.”
