What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I chose early access because this is the stage of development at which I have already implemented all the main mechanics, but for the further development of the game I need the help of the community. Since I work alone, in order to make important decisions on the further development of the game and how successful these decisions are, I need the opinion of the community, which can guide me for better development of the game. Helping the community to balance artifacts, abilities and weapons is the main reason why I chose early access. In the future, even more characters and mechanics related to artifacts and weapons will appear in the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Over the next six months, I plan to release a major update every 2-3 months, after three such updates the game will be released from early access.”

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

“In the early access version, 3 characters, 30 weapons, 135 ability upgrades, 25 artifacts and 3 boss and enemy locations are available. During the time that the game will be in early access, I plan to add new characters, weapons for them, new mechanics related to artifacts and new locations with bosses and enemies.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All the main mechanics are ready, 3 locations with enemy bosses and traps, 3 character classes, their abilities and ability upgrades, weapons (10 varieties for each), 25 artifacts that are placed in abilities and their interactions with abilities.”

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

“No, the price will remain the same”

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

“The help of the community is a very important element in the development of the game, I will try to read and take into account all the advice, criticism and comments. Bugs, game balance and tips for further development of the game are the most important things the game community can help me with. You can contact me in the discord channel in it you will find communication channels in order to
to share your thoughts on the game, or perhaps interesting ideas that will bring more features to the game. I regularly read reviews and discussions to keep up to date with what players think about Still be a Human.”

About This Game

Still be a Human is an action roguelike with an emphasis on building artifact combinations. By choosing one of the characters, you descend from the top of the Tower of Shadows, on your way you will meet many enemies, the unique abilities of each of the heroes will help to fight them, and by placing the found artifacts in the abilities you will not leave a chance for the Cult of Shadows.

4 characters:
  • Warrior - a melee master armed with a sword. Crushes enemies with piercing lunges, as if a whirlwind spins its sword and attracts distant enemies with a harpoon, leaving them no chance in a fight face to face.

  • The Ink Assassin is an agile and deadly master of throwing weapons. Shurikens, throwing daggers, and smoke bombs, combined with ink clones, allow him to dispatch enemies without them even touching him.

  • Mage - a great wizard who conquered the elements of the elements. Elemental combinations create fiery tornadoes, ice beams, lightning bolts and more. Competent combinations of different abilities will easily destroy even the strongest enemies.

  • Gunslinger -  is a master of handling a pistol, or even two, different types of ammunition, bombs and grenades.  Combine different types of ammunition with abilities to give them additional properties.

30 types of weapons:
A sword forged from volcanic magma, the blows of which create fiery explosions, a shuriken that creates copies of itself when it hits an enemy, or maybe a staff that releases a lot of bouncing beams?
Who knows what might come in handy for the hero on his difficult journey from the top of the Tower of Shadows.

25 Artifacts:
Abandoned and forgotten artifacts in the depths of the Tower, once they were objects of worship. Capable of creating black holes, fireballs, or healing badly wounded warriors, they were lost and forgotten for years to come. But who knows, maybe they will help you on your journey.

6 Feature Stones:
Ordinary stones under the mysterious influence of the Tower received their unique properties. Survive a fatal blow, run away from a crowd of enemies, improve your skills with weapons, these fancy stones will help in all this, you just need to find the right one.

135 Ability Upgrades:
In the process of descending from the top of the tower, the heroes are forced to improve their skills in exterminating enemies. The warrior, having sharpened the harpoon, will be able to pierce the enemies by pulling them all at once to him. The Ink Killer will tie multiple smoke bombs together to hit a lot more enemies. Having perfectly mastered the elements of the elements, the Mage creates several whirlwinds while simultaneously grinding the enemies caught between them.

In the depths of the Tower, numerous, disfigured shadows of the Cult are waiting for you, once being people and even heroes, having become unwitting inhabitants of the Tower, they have completely lost their human appearance.

Six cultists who sacrificed their bodies long ago to gain immortality as Shadows. But to complete the ritual, they lack the last, wandering shadow, which must find its own way, come to the Tower itself and give its life.
