What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

SAMPHI IS CURRENTLY ON INDEFINITE HIATUS FROM DEVELOPMENT. THANK YOU TO ALL THE PLAYERS WHO SUPPORTED THE GAME OVER LAST FEW YEARS. SEE MY LAST UPDATE FOR AN EXPLANATION

Samphi is an ambitious project. It’s currently made by just me, Dale, in Game Maker Studio, and I’ve been working on it in my spare time for roughly 5 years now! I’ve taken it as far as I can on my own, and now feel the input of players is vital to moving forward.

The story is a big part of the game, but before I get to implementing it I need to ensure the underlying world is solid as can be. With your feedback we’ll get the world to where we need it, then I’ll add the story which I want to tell. :)”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Realistically, 12-18 months depending on the reception. If it's well received and we have a good player-base this time will decrease.”

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

“Apart from being more polished, and with lots more content, the full version will see the introduction of the story mode. It’s something I’m really looking forward to working on more, but the underlying game needs to be solid first.

It will also see the introduction of the Mac and Linux versions of the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Samphi is now in Beta.

For the past ~18 months Samphi has been available in Alpha on various stores. During that time I’ve taken all feedback on-board and moved forward leaps and bounds, including the addition of online multiplayer!”

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

“It will. Once the game reaches its full version, the price will increase a touch. It will always be towards the cheaper end of the price scale though! :)”

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

“In every way possible. Once the game releases, everyone who purchases a copy essentially joins the dev team! I love the communication with people playing my games, so any and all ideas will be addressed directly by myself.”

About This Game

SAMPHI IS CURRENTLY ON INDEFINITE HIATUS FROM DEVELOPMENT. THANK YOU TO ALL THE PLAYERS WHO SUPPORTED THE GAME OVER LAST FEW YEARS. SEE MY LAST UPDATE FOR AN EXPLANATION



Samphi is a fresh randomly-generated survival-RPG, with a shifted focus to skills, world management, and a story mode*. Travel through broken memories of a failing relationship to try and salvage what’s left. How you play is up to you. The world is yours. Your story is waiting.

DISCLAIMER: SAMPHI IS IN EARLY ACCESS. BY PURCHASING NOW YOU ARE NOT PURCHASING A COMPLETE TITLE BUT ARE ACTIVELY SUPPORTING THE PROJECT BY PURCHASING THE PROMISE OF ONE. IN THE MEAN-TIME, THERE MAY BE BUGS AND OTHER ISSUES. YOU KNOW THE DRILL. :)

*The story mode of Samphi will be included in the full release. While in Early Access the game is limited to local and online freeplay.




The story of Samphi is about re-living memories of a failing relationship in a last-ditch attempt to understand and save it. All memories will take place in randomly generated sandbox areas, giving you freedom over how they play. Instead of just carting the player from A to B with fixed dialog, I want you to be able to create your own worlds, play how you want, and ultimately have your own experience. Also, with the addition of RPG features such as character progression, skills, and pets, I hope to really immerse the player into the world they create.



    • Play as either 'Boy' or 'Girl'.
    • Each memory will take place in a randomly generated area.
    • Complete all memories in the timeline, and their associated tasks, to learn the story behind 'boy' & 'girl'.
    • Samphi's story is me sharing my own experience. The loose telling of the story will allow you to add your own significance to the experience.


If that's not your bag there's always freeplay mode!



Since I’m telling my story in a sandbox universe, it only makes sense to open it up and provide a freeplay mode! No goals, no story, just sandbox goodness. Create your own world, live your own story, use your skills to survive, and hone them to master the world around you. The goal isn’t the usual exploration and/or fighting, sure that’s there, but the goal is to establish yourself and build the best world around you.


    Each world is made up of randomly-generated areas. What you do in this world is up to you!Dig, build, gather and create your own world. Don't take too long; things go bump in the night.You have plenty of materials at your disposal so let's see what you can create with them.

    Once you have gathered your materials you are ready to craft.Use what you have gathered to forge new items and equipment to help you build your world.To craft better items and building materials build yourself a crafting bench.

    Now you have your items and a shelter its time for the final step. Food!There're multiple ways in which you can get food including gathering, fishing, and farming.Time to get back to your house, rustle up a campfire and cook your spoils.

    While doing all this you will be gaining experience and be improving your skills.The more you hone your skills the more competent and masterful you'll become.

    Accompanying you throughout your adventure is your own pet.As he/she accompanies you, you’ll find your pet grown stronger alongside you.

Samphi is my entry into one of my favorite genres. I’ve always loved the genre, and play many of the entries in it, but I’ve always wanted a smaller, more intimate experience with more meaning. That’s my goal, and I hope you enjoy Samphi!
