What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Releasing Castle of Alchemists early access allows us to involve players, gather feedback, and make necessary adjustments before full release. Helps us create the best possible experience by fine-tuning systems, making updates, collaborating with players, and keeping their feedback in mind throughout development. Ultimately, the goal is to create the best game possible with the help of our community.

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Castle of Alchemists will be in early access for at least 4 months, but the duration may be longer depending on player feedback and the amount of content in the final game. Our goal is to release the game before the end of 2023.

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

“When we release in Early Access, all the listed features will be working, but the game may be slightly rough, buggy or unbalanced. But throughout the early access period, we will be incorporating additional content and features influenced by community and player feedback.

In the full release, we plan to add;
  • More Weapons
  • More Gears
  • More Upgrades
  • More Traps
  • More Towers
  • More Maps

These additions will be based on feedback and suggestions from our community, to ensure that we are delivering the best possible experience for our players. Our goal is to create a fun and enjoyable game that our community will love.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of the Early Access version is that the core systems and features are working and there is 10+ hours of gameplay. Most of the planned core features of the game have been implemented and are available for players to experience.

While we may decide to expand the game further, all the features described in the "about" section are working in-game now, some just needing refinement to be considered release-ready. We will continue to work on refining and polishing the game based on feedback from our community to deliver the best possible experience.”

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

“The game will be discounted less frequently and at a lower percentage as the full release approaches. The pricing will probably not change after the full release.

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

“We welcome and value player feedback as it plays a crucial role in shaping the game.

Our players can share their thoughts and suggestions through various channels such as joining our official Discord server, leaving feedback on our Steam forums or reaching out to us on social media. We are dedicated to listening to our community and incorporating their feedback into the game's development.”

About This Game

Forged by battle,
Perfected by alchemy,
First of his kind,
Last line of our defence,
Bellator di Alchemia.

Castle of Alchemists is an action-RPG and tower defence hybrid where you take on the role of Bellator, an alchemically enhanced super soldier and fight against relentless hordes of enemies from other worlds.
Craft items with randomised abilities that only a super soldier can wield, lay down deadly traps and build towers, mutate and advance to your perfection.
Crush hordes of enemies as you reclaim the castle from the invaders piece by piece. If they come by the thousands, by the thousands they shall fall.

  • Battle and defeat thousands of invaders from different factions with unique abilities, from a selection of more than 2 dozens of enemies.
  • Craft an arsenal of weapons and items with randomised properties.
  • Mutate and hone your skills through detailed skill trees.
  • Number of traps and towers, each with a range of variants.
  • Apply more than 10 conditions to enemies—slow them, stun them, burn them, freeze them, and more.
  • Utilise synergies to quickly dispatch enemies: put metal traps struck by electric, set ablaze oils, or electrify acid puddles to spread explosive poisonous gases.
  • Advance through levels set in diverse locations; the mines beneath the castle, the bustling forges of engineering, and silent lecture halls devoid of alchemists.
  • Face bosses in special arenas, never-ending hordes in endless levels, or the challenges in increased difficulty mode for greater rewards.

We are a two-person team working on this game with all our power. We are open to your feedback and want to develop this game with you to its best. Join our discord to give instant feedback and be notified about the game updates!
