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?

“We have been developing Grim Tranquility for 2 years with a core group of developers. We are excited to start showing the world what we have been working on.

Unlike many AAA studios, we do not have an external publisher. So we want to ensure there is time to incorporate feedback the community has into our game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Currently we are hoping for a Q4 release, but the amount (and focal points) of community feedback may increase that.

Our hope is to take the time needed to bring the game we have been working on to the world and have it be something people are excited to experience.”

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

“The Early Access build -- upon the initial release -- is approximately 25% of the full game experience. The first world, Garden of Wolves, is the first content we want people to experience. We are hard at work on finishing the later levels, but want to get some initial feedback and critique so that we know the areas people are most interested in.

Later features that we plan to show in future builds:

- 3 more full worlds, each with their own biome, aliens, and unique effects.
- A complete alien bestiary (comprised of new art & descriptions for all aliens in the game)
- Complete VO for all main narrative stories, as well as some side quests.
- A more robust moonlighting (side quest) system featuring deeper stories that tie back into the main narrative & a player's progress through it
- Many more skills & abilities for later levels (15+)
- Social Assist: This is our semi-multiplayer feature, which allows players to help out others asynchronously. You may be asked to help in the Intergalactic War by donating credits or gear. This may help NPCs, but may also go to other players. Similarly, you will be able to proactively ask for help yourself and receive it in the future.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The entire first chapter, Garden of Wolves, is available for play today.
A player will see our Chapter Select screen, so you can see the upcoming levels; in future releases these will be available once a player has completed Garden of Wolves at least once.

There are 5 unique mission types available, as well as settlements where you can upgrade your gear, pick up or turn in moonlighting quests, recruit new heroes to replace those who have fallen, and try your luck with our Social Assist feature (though it is based on randomness and not yet multiplayer)”

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

“The game will gradually increase as we ship new content and feature.
There is no plan for this price increase; we believe it will be at least 6 months before we would consider this.”

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

“We interact with our community typically via our social media channels, our discord, or the Poorly Timed Games reddit. We know how players wish to interact with devs can vary, so we try to provide a number of options.

Our community team monitors our social channels daily and we plan to schedule regular updates so that the Community understands both the current state of the game, our medium term goals, and remaining large features and their status.”

About This Game


After centuries of environmental exploitation, the Earth is all but destroyed… its resources depleted… its climate uninhabitable. Humankind has used the last available resources to search for a home in a new world that may be harsher than even Earth was.

Grim Tranquility is a sci-fi-themed roguelite, tactics-based RPG where you explore alien worlds and battle vicious enemies in your quest to establish the first human settlement in space. Will humanity finally learn from their past mistakes or are they doomed to repeat the avoidable tragedies of their ancestors?

Key Features

Master The Alien Battlefield: Leap into battle utilizing proven tactical RPG mechanics to strategize movement, capture map objectives, and unleash special attacks on hostile alien enemies.

Fight The Power: Rebel against a corrupt empire and take out selfish leaders in high-stakes boss fights - or replace them.

Build Your Own Team: Every run choose a team from 3 original classes.

Gain Political Benefits: Secure valuable buff effects for your party by bribing alien officials - or just take them by force in the roguelite cycle.

Experience A Different Battle Every Time: Procedurally generated levels deliver a different tactical challenge in every playthrough.

Take on Side Quests: Even heroes need side gigs! Take on Moonlight Missions to earn money, weapons, and to learn more about the people who need your help.

Enjoy Heroic Voices: Feel the diverse characters come to life through renowned vocal talents including Steve Blum (Shazam!, Mortal Kombat series), Ray Chase (Final Fantasy XIV, Evangelion, Nier: Automata), Misty Lee (Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Just Cause 4), Darin De Paul (Mortal Kombat Legend: Scorpion’s Revenge, The Outer Worlds), and Alexandra Gray (Empire, Transparent).
