What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I strongly believe that involving the community in the development process is critical to making a game that people want to play, and keep playing.

As I continuously add new content, maintaining game balance is an ongoing challenge. I have a core group of alpha testers who have already provided invaluable feedback, but gathering reviews and input from a larger community will be invaluable.

There are a few design decisions which are currently up in the air, specifically whether to add active skills to the game, or keep it's controls simple. Each direction opens up both opportunity, but also downsides, so getting feedback from the community will help determine the development path.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I'm anticipating approximately 6-months to 1 year of development time until I reach the features appropriate for a full version release.”

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

“The full version is planned to contain the following additions over Early Access:

  • 8+ Character classes
  • 30+ Skill/Buff Items
  • 10+ Levels
  • Endgame system* with leaderboard - Leaderboard DONE
  • Level difficulty mods, making monsters significantly more challenging
  • Skill Modification System - DONE
  • Buff Modification System -DONE
  • Engaging, unique Boss Arenas
  • Cleaner, more consistent UI design
  • Cleaner, more consistent sounds
  • Steam Achievements

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the initial early access release, there are 6 playable character classes, 17+ items, 14 mutations, multiple powerups & item drops, item chests, 3-4 levels, and more.

You begin your journey with a single character unlocked, and as you reach specific goals found in the Codex, you'll unlock more content.

The mutation/mutagen system is fully implemented, and is required to progress far into the current levels. Item modification system is also now implemented.

In each level, monster density, difficulty, and drops will scale over time.

You can expect game balance to require tweaking, and there are inevitably some pretty broken builds.

There is no guarantee that save files will be transferrable to the full release version, but I plan on supporting this if possible.

The base mechanics of the game are fully implemented, and the early access release will likely take a few hours to unlock all of the content.”

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

“Price may increase as full release nears.”

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

“I plan on using community feedback to steer the direction of the builds, as well as balancing skills, items, and characters. I regularly interact with the community and review feedback in the official discord.”
