What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Even though I have a good idea of what makes Of Blades & Tails and what doesn't, it's very important for me to listen to player feedback. Since development began in January 2021, I've been involving players in the development. At first, of course, only family and friends, but already in October of the same year I released an early demo and got a lot of constructive feedback. A next important step was to publish the demo on Steam and participate in the Steam Next Fest.

All these events and the large number of players have contributed to the fact that today the game is already in a state of which I am extremely proud.
I want to use the Early Access phase to keep up this feedback and continue to work closely with the community to make Of Blades & Tails an accessible and enjoyable turn-based action RPG.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I expect the game to remain in Early Access for about one year. But that also depends on player feedback.”

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

“First of all, the main story of the game will only be available in its entirety in the full version. Currently, there is only a teaser of this story in the form of its prelude quest and I assume that this will remain the case until the end of the Early Access phase.

Beyond that, there are of course more features planned to be added in the coming months. The following list is only an excerpt:
- More talents like Stealth and Summoning
- Reworked enemy behavior
- More faction content (Mages Guild, Adventurers Guild, etc.)
- Additional side activities
- World map expansion incl. more dungeons, legendary rewards, secrets, etc.
- Steam Achievements
- ...”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version already includes all the important core features of the game and enough content for about 6-10 hours for one playthrough. This depends on how much of the game world you actually want to explore and what secrets you want to uncover.

The game also already invites you to try out different play styles.

The Early Access release version in numbers:
- 10 talents
- 48 abilities
- 10 quests
- 3 armor classes
- Countless equipment items
- 9 legendary items
- 30+ enemy types
- 14 unique locations
- 5 dungeons
- 2 major settlements
- 15+ unique NPCs
- 2 difficulty modes: Relaxed, Adventure”

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

“The price of the full release version probably gets increased.”

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

“Your feedback is important to further improve and balance the game. It will also influence what features or additional content will be implemented next.

There are several ways to submit feedback:

- Our Discord server: https://discord.gg/u6KdzUDwyV
- Feedback form in the game: Shown when exiting via the main menu.
- Steam discussions”

About This Game



A turn-based RPG that is action-oriented but rewards a thoughtful approach. Discover a fantastic land populated by different animal tribes.
You play Reik, a clever member of the tribe of foxes. A chain of unfortunate events involves you in a quest of vital importance to all the peace-loving creatures of the realm. You will have to leave your home village and explore the world to become strong enough to stand up to evil. (In other words: There will be a main storyline but it's still in the making!)



The gameplay is inspired by classic Hack & Slays like Diablo and turn-based RPGs like Tales of Maj'Eyal or Stoneshard. However there is no permadeath in this game. Your progress is always saved once you enter a new area.
The lore is inspired by the classic point & click adventure Inherit the Earth.



As you explore the land, you'll gain experience and unlock new abilities. Not all inhabitants will be friendly to you. Some will help you with information, others are only interested in trading, and still others will get in your way.
Improve your equipment and collect useful resources in the environment to have a decisive advantage in battle.



  • Turn-based Combat that allows for quick action or strategic planning
  • An Open World with lots of places to discover
