What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“"Praecantor Lila ~ Bell Spell" is actively in development, but is far enough along for the its base campaign to be able to be completed on all of its difficulties. The game is missing finalised textures, some out-of-gameplay features such as replays and online highscores, and most bonus content such as Achievement integration. The game will be launching in Early Access to provide players with a fuller game experience beyond the demo version, and for player feedback to be taken into consideration when finalising the release edition of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“An early access demo version of the game will be available in January, and an early access paid version of the game should be available Q1 2022. The game is expected to be completed and fully launched no later than Q3 2022.”

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

“Most of the gameplay content has been implemented and currently is utilising placeholder textures and assets. The eventual replacement of the game's visuals with their final versions is the planned primary difference between Early Access and the completed version, but balance, mechanics, and feature changes may be made according to player feedback. Additionally, additional bonus content may be added depending on player feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • The game's main campaign is gameplay-complete.
  • Bonus gameplay content is still being created and tuned.
  • Approximately 40% of the background textures have been implemented.
  • Base images for 8 out of 10 characters have been implemented, and 2 out of those 8 are fully complete.
  • Some major features, such as the Stage Practice mode, are not yet implemented.
  • Full configurations menu, full gamepad support and natively remappable keys (without the need to edit configuration files in Windows) are pending.

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

“The game will be slightly discounted while it is unfinished. Upon completion, the posted store price will increase to its intended value.”

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

“While the game is unfinished, bug reports, balance feedback, and potentially community suggestions/requests as it pertains to configurations for gameplay, accessibility, and cosmetics will be used to enhance the user experience.”

About This Game

Praecantor Lila ~ Bell Spell is the inaugural installment of Lunacy Indeterminate's Praecantors series of bullet hell shoot-em-up titles.
Take on the role of Lilavera Westbrook, a praecantor- or witch, as she embarks on a journey to locate her missing, non-magical human friend, Ellisanne Martyrose.

Players will be tasked with completing the game's campaign in Story Mode or Arcade Mode. The story consists of six stages of increasing challenge, all set and timed to an original score for stages and bosses. In the Story Mode, you approach the stages one-by-one and experience the game's cutscenes and character dialogue, but in Arcade Mode, all breaks in the action are stripped away as you attempt to complete all stages consecutively.

Important to the plot is a strange bell that absorbs magic when rung, which is reflected in the central gameplay mechanics. Ring bells to clear enemy fire and absorb gold and other bells- stacking bells together with lots of gold and bullet deletions will send your score into the stratosphere ... alternatively, leverage their magic-sealing properties to protect yourself!

There are three difficulties in the game, Casual, Original and Super- which range from actively assisting the player with mechanics, to being bitterly, insurmountably difficult. Good luck!
