What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Pirates of Gravitae is mostly the work of a solo indie developer. I have focused my efforts on making the core gameplay as enjoyable as I can, and added a good amount of content to keep players busy for a while. However there is a lot more to be done before the game matches the complete vision that I have of it. Early Access will enable me to get invaluable player feedback, to understand what parts of it are resonating with the players and what parts need more time in the oven, which parts to prioritize and which bits are superfluous. My plan is also to grow the team, so that we can deliver all the exciting content and features faster and at an even higher quality.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Currently the plan is to stay in Early Access for about a year. This period may increase depending on future scope changes.”

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

“The final version of the game will have more of everything that is currently in the game:
A longer campaign, more abilities, more collectible bonuses, more enemy types, more mission types, more more more! A story mode is also planned, in order to fully explore the unique flavour of the world of Pirates of Gravitae.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently the game is stable and playable, with a good chunk of content. There are over a dozen abilities and upgrades, over 60 different collectible bonuses, and about a third of the grand campaign.”

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

“The plan is to gradually increase the price as more content is added to the game.”

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

“A well balanced game is critical for a good roguelike. The hope is that the community will provide feedback on a range of different aspects: encounter difficulty, usefulness of various abilities and bonuses, mission variety, general game responsiveness, and more. Understanding how the community interacts with the game will allow us to understand what parts of the development process should be prioritized.”

About This Game

Pirates of Gravitae is an action roguelike game with fast-paced aerial combat. The player commands a gravity-defying pirate ship and her eclectic crew, in a bid to stop a malignant, global trade empire, the Dynamic India Company, the ambitions of which threaten the existence of Earth itself.

  • Run based campaign where every defeat gets you closer to final victory, with persistent ability unlocks and upgrades across runs
  • Wield an energy saber while swinging from a grappling hook, or fire your cannons on full auto while zapping enemies with lightning. Find your own favorite combination from 16 different sailor perks.
  • Balance offensive and defensive capabilities with maneuverability. Combine up to three from 13 different weapons, defensive measures, and maneuvers to find your optimal load-out.
  • Come up with a different build for each run. Equip your sailors with over 60 different randomized loot items.
  • Train your crew for persistent stat upgrades across 8 different stats for your ship
  • Optimize your build to suit your play style: high or low altitude, day or night encounters, strong winds or clear skies. It all makes a difference.
  • Raid treasure galleons, bombard forts from above, dominate the skies!

The year is 1650 and humans have discovered the means to extract Gravitae from ordinary matter, the essence that grounds and binds things to earth itself. The combustion of Gravitae in shipborne engines has enabled massive naval vessels to take to the skies, nimble as birds. New trade routes have been discovered unimpeded by land or ocean, bringing obscene wealth in a short period of time to a select few who control the extraction of this wondrous resource.

The rich and powerful have used Gravitae to levitate the most fertile lands and valuable assets out of the reach of ordinary people. They have built floating towns and cities saturated with comfort and luxury, unburdened by the destruction caused in the extraction of Gravitae.

Driving this massive change is a globe-spanning power unaccountable to any nation: the Dynamic India Company. It is rumored that the two DIC heads, only known as El Jeffe and Il Doge, are plotting to create an entire new world in the heavens for themselves to rule, by combining the stolen riches of the earth and the mass of the moon. Unstopped, this will spell certain and terminal disaster for everyone left on earth.

It is not too late yet.
