What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have always wanted to make the best roguelite we can and it implies working with a community of players willing to help us. From our game development studio point of view, continuous improvement is something we truly believe in and it is a philosophy that we continuously keep while developing our games. This is the main reason we chose Steam’s Early Access model: it will allow us to develop the best possible version of Cryptical Path!

Thanks to your feedback, we plan to improve every existing aspect of the game while adding new content up until 1.0 release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It will depend on the players' feedback, we already have quite a lot of content planned for the first few months but we want the Early Access to be the opportunity for the community to influence the direction of the game's development. It should last between 6 and 12 months.”

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

“We want the upcoming full version to pack in a ton more stuff, including loads of new items and a bunch of new enemies to face off against. On the story side of things, the goal is to complete the narrative experience. If everything goes according to plan, you can expect the full version to be a lot bigger in terms of content compared to the first Early Access version.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At the moment, no build is currently available but Cryptical Path's core features, such as battles, room construction and item unlocking will be there.”

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

“Right now, things aren't set in stone, but our plan is to raise the price when we launch the 1.0 version. That's because the game will have a whole lot more to offer compared to when it first hit Early Access. We believe that the price should match the experience players will get from the game.”

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

“We are committed to fostering strong connections between the community and our development team, striving to gather an extensive array of written feedback. To achieve this, we are taking multiple steps. We will establish Discord servers and social media channels dedicated to facilitating easy communication. Additionally, within the game itself, we will implement a feedback button, ensuring a seamless feedback-giving process.”

About This Game

Sick of other rogue-lites where random generation feels like a joke? Well, welcome to Cryptical Path, where the tables are turned! Forget the capricious whims of procedural dungeons, here, you are the master Architect.

Cryptical Path is not just another rogue-lite, it pioneers a new genre as the first rogue-builder, allowing you to express your creativity through thousands of possibilities. Forge your path through meticulously chosen rooms, sculpting an adventure that reflects your distinctive style and strategy!

Escape the ominous depths of the Hexium, a prison forged by your own hands to confine malevolent souls. Unravel the mysteries of your creation and navigate treacherous landscape, where every shadow conceals a potential threat, and every step forward brings you closer to the wrath of those you have condemned to an eternity of darkness.

  • Rogue-builder: The ability to carve your dungeon, increasing the replayability and the control you have in each and every run.
  • Immersive world: Explore a 2D side-scroller within beautifully crafted 3D environments.
  • Fast paced action: Embody the Architect, a dynamic character that can dodge, dash and slash in the blink of an eye!
