Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is a great opportunity to involve the community in helping us build the game. We would like to collect feedback regarding all aspects of the game, including such things as character builds, balancing skills, difficulty and progression. We want to know what we can improve on and what people enjoy and do not enjoy, and we will do our best to make changes accordingly.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate to exit early access by end of Summer, 2024. Keeper's Toll may remain in Early Access longer than expected, and we will do our best to update the community.”

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

“There are currently 4 playable characters (Bogatyr, Necromancer, Ranger and Shadow Monk) out of the 6 available on Full Release. Early Access also has 3 of the levels (Linden Forest, Usvit Depths and Usvit Castle). We plan to release more content as we continue development and reach major milestones. Lots of new features and systems will be added throughout the course of development.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of the Early Access version includes the base structure of the game, but lacks various systems and some of the core content such as character classes and levels. We have character talent trees, lots of different enemy types and bosses to fight, and the Merchant / Item system is in place.

As Keeper's Toll is a work in progress, there will be things that are going to change. There will be bugs. There will be balancing issues. These are things we will be working on as we develop the game. If you want a polished version of the product, Early Access may not be right for you. If you want to join the community and help us build the game, or you acknowledge the shortfalls of the game being a WIP, then we welcome you to join us!”

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

“The game will be priced at a discount during Early Access. We may be raising the price later on, and pricing is currently TBD.”

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

“We plan to involve the community by directly connecting through Steam or through our Discord Server. We also plan on doing some livestreams and consistent content updates. We will also engage with players through our website and/or social media platforms such as Youtube and Twitter.”

About This Game



Arise, fallen hero! Enter Keeper's Toll, an action-packed roguelite set within a retro-infused dark fantasy world that demands skill and courage. Every moment could be your last, but with each setback, you grow stronger. Seize the challenge, overcome daunting foes, and purge a callous world through a methodical genre-bending experience.



Keeper’s Toll places a heavy focus on slow-paced, skill-based gameplay with ARPG elements. Each run allows you to study your enemies and hone your skills while progressing through the main quest. Once you have mastered the basics, Keeper’s Toll introduces unique enemy archetypes, intricate bosses, and fresh mechanics that will challenge any worthy hero.



The complete version of the game will feature 6 unique risen heroes. Currently, there are 4 character classes available to play: Bogatyr, Necromancer, Ranger, and Shadow Monk. Each hero has their own specialized game-defining mechanics, as well as completely unique abilities and progression trees.




Ferocious bosses and cutthroat invaders lie at the heart of Keeper’s Toll and its perilous lands. All of the bosses, mini bosses, and invaders you will encounter feature their own unique battle mechanics and twists on the core gameplay. Overcoming the bosses requires a keen sense of strategy, so strengthen your character with purpose or suffer a swift end to your journey.


Key Features:
  • Unique genre blend between horde survival and souls-like
  • Slow-paced, skill-based gameplay designed to be approached methodically
