“What do you get if you combine classic Diablo with Vampire Survivors? Well one developer decided to show you with an unholy combination in Halls of Torment. Absolutely awesome. Plays great!”

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Even though the core gameplay of Halls of Torment appears to be simple, there’s a lot going on in its underlying design. We want the game to provide a genuine depth in character builds and meta progression. The game contains rpg elements that make this kind of depth possible: character stats, items, monsters, quests, abilities, you name it. With so many moving parts we require the continuous feedback of a larger player base to make it the best game experience it can be. For us this is only possible in an Early Access environment.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Update: Because of the big support and trust we were able to allocate more resources into the game than originally intended, expanding the planned content and therefore we are needing longer for the Early Access than 6 months. Our current estimate to work on the game between 12-18 months, so the game should release in 2024.”

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

“Our intention is to increase the replayability in the final version, specifically by an increased number of player characters, stages, quests, and items. This would also include unique and bespoke mechanics for specific characters and items. We want to provide a longer meta progression, improve balancing based on playtests and player feedback and polish the experience overall.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core mechanics and the general structure of the game are pretty much finished. There are two playable stages with four bosses each and a maximum duration of 30 minutes per run. We currently have an initial roster of four player characters, approximately 40 items, and a moderately sized collection of initial character abilities and traits. Players can already complete quests and unlock gated content.”

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

“After Early Access the price may increase depending on the content that has been added to the final version.”

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

“We want to be in touch with our players throughout the entire development. We have an active Discord server which we moderate personally and on which our community is discussing the current version of the game. We always have our eyes on the Steam forums where we read every post and try to gather as much feedback as possible.”
