What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Soulash 2 is a massive and complex project born from a one-man's lifelong passion for gaming. I've rebuilt the first game from the ground up with new design fundaments of massive scale, sandbox features, and procedural content to allow players to experience the game as they like and forge their own stories within the world's constraints.

Because Soulash development alongside players' feedback has worked so well for the game during its EA, I would like to continue the next chapter of this incredible journey with the players to adjust my vision for the game to match their expectations.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The EA is planned for 1 year, possibly longer if there's an opportunity to expand the game beyond the planned scope.”

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

“During early access, my main focus will be to work on the mid to endgame mechanics around conquest and settlement management, adding strategy elements to enhance the conquest theme with tools to deal with the scale of the world.

I will also continue adding more details to the world, new skills, major races, enemies, items, and features.

You will find the current Roadmap here: https://steamcommunity.com/games/2399160/announcements/detail/3960420041410120012”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of the game revolves around the Adventuring loop - discovering and raiding procedural locations, acquiring new valuables to sell and resources to use in crafting, and interacting with NPCs in settlements. It also has procedural world generation with history simulation that revolves around settlements but doesn't focus on creating individual personalities for each NPC.

The game has 6 major races implemented, with procedural portraits, settlements, unique buildings, resources, and items.

There are 11 different world biomes, with procedural locations unique per biome.

Aside from combat, skill progression, and exploration, the EA has fully functional crafting, building, and trading.

The game will be updated often, and paired with the game's complexity, especially around procedural generation, bugs may be a frequent occurrence during early access.

Modding Tools are available with Steam Workshop integration.”

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

“The price will increase as the game grows.”

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

“I'm active on the game's Discord channel to discuss the game, receive feedback, or help with issues. I lurk around on the Steam Community to understand how players feel about different parts of the game, but I try to avoid getting into conversations there if I'm not needed so players have a place to share their opinions more freely.

I believe in honest and open communication, I respond to feedback after enough players have the opportunity to voice their opinions. Soulash 2 is a niche game built with limited resources, and I can't promise that the game will be developed past the full release, but I can promise a year of development since the beginning of EA. Because of the open world and sandbox mechanics, the potential is to keep expanding the game with entirely new playstyles and world interactions for many years if the release succeeds.

If there's an interest in modding, I'll keep expanding the capabilities of the editors during EA, so players have more opportunities to be even more creative and share their content with others on Steam Workshop.

If you want to help make this game incredible, please join us on Discord and check the FAQ there.”

About This Game

In a realm where gods have perished, a new era of strife has dawned. Seize power, forge legendary artifacts, conquer the world, and ascend to the divine throne in Soulash 2!

Immerse yourself in an innovative blend of sandbox, roleplaying, and traditional roguelike genres. Conquer an expansive fantasy world, embark on daring expeditions to challenge formidable beings, craft extraordinary artifacts, amass a fortune as a merchant or thief, feed the starving population as a farmer, or construct a monumental pyramid amidst the desert sands.

Conquer the World


Each world in Soulash 2 is procedurally generated, complete with a simulated history. Generate unique settlements shaped by trade routes, character lifecycles, resource extraction, food consumption, occupations, wages, and the triumphs and tragedies of war - all before you etch your own legacy into their annals.

Forge Your Destiny


While conquest and destruction lie at the heart of the game, your fate remains unwritten. Soulash 2's skill-based progression system empowers you to unlock new abilities and actions through diverse activities, paving the way for unique possibilities. Embrace your inner explorer, artisan, architect, pyromancer, warrior, or forge your own path by combining different skills.

Master the Art of Crafting


Soulash 2's innovative crafting system lets you create items with your chosen resources. Recipes feature slots of different types that can be fitted with unique magical ingredients, bestowing items with unparalleled properties that amplify character customization.

Build Your Legacy


Elevate your dominion with an array of diverse structures: construct a humble hut nestled within a verdant forest, erect a majestic temple to garner adoration, command from a mighty castle atop rolling hills, raise an ice-encrusted tower amidst the frosty tundra, or unleash your sinister influence through a foreboding black pyramid in a sun-scorched desert. Alternatively, seize existing dwellings and reshape them, effortlessly molding the world to your dark desires.

Embrace Mortality - Or Defy It


Select from three distinct modes to suit your playstyle:

High Fantasy Mode: You suffer penalties upon death but resurrect in the nearest friendly location. This mode is for those who prefer that the world revolves around them.
Dark Fantasy Mode: Experience true loss as death erases your character but leaves the world and your creations intact. You may continue influencing the world as a new character.
Hardcore Mode: Face the unforgiving roguelike experience with permadeath that annihilates your character and the world - no meta progression, no mercy.
