What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have wanted to incorporate player feedback into our game from very early on in our development process. Based on the feedback that we have received during the 5 years of development, the game has always steered to a better direction.

With Steam Early Access, we want to expand our player base and receive a lot more feedback and ideas to make the game an even more fun experience for the fans of rogue-lite genre.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning to keep the game in Early Access until December 2019. The game is already fully playable from start to finish, but there are still some additions and improvements we still wish to make before we drop the Early Access label.”

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

“There will be some additional monsters, balance updates and performance improvements.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is now content complete and has all planned features:

  • 14 procedurally generated stages of challenging gameplay
  • Two tough mini-boss to beat
  • Two challenging World Bosses to conquer
  • Fully destructible environments
  • Local co-op up to 4 players
  • 40 items to boost your character with
  • 40+ unique enemies to fight
  • 4 playable characters with different skill sets
  • 70+ Perks across all playable characters
  • Five difficulty levels
  • 25 Achievements to unlock
  • Full controller support with rebindable controls

Exploring perk choices with all characters, unlocking all items and trying them out should take the player several hours. Mastering the game and beating it with harder difficulty settings will probably take even longer.”

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

“There are currently no plans to raise the price when the game leaves early access.”

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

“We want to work with our fans and community to improve many aspects of our game:

Balancing:
We want Gerty to have an intense, tough but fair gameplay. If you feel like something in the game is taking the fun out of the experience, we would like to know! We want to tackle balancing from both ends, where the content feels too easy or too punishing.

Suggestions and ideas:
We would like to hear ideas how the game can be improved. We also encourage community to tell if they especially like some content and don't want it changed. We currently have more ideas for almost all systems in the game, but letting us know what kind of content you would like to see more helps us prioritize what we add to the game sooner rather than later.

Stomping them bugs:
As a small development team, we don't have enough resources to test our game with many hardware configurations and operating system versions, and there will be some configurations with issues. Sometimes issues may rise from our own mistakes. We want all players to be able to enjoy the game and reporting bugs and fixing those bugs is a priority for us.

Testing the second world:
With the second world now fully playable we want to gather feedback and to make the it even more fun to play.”

“A very promising game that takes many pre-existing concepts in the roguelite genre, and puts it’s own unique spin on them to produce something truly different.”

“Well differentiated enemies, lots of unlockable upgrades, challenges, and a few different character classes round out a highly playable, polished, and strangely refreshing shooter.”

About This Game



You are a member of an elite mercenary group. A mining colony of critical importance has become under attack by a hostile alien force. Armed to the teeth and equipped with your trusty laser-diggers, you must fight your way to the depths of the planet, find the source of the alien threat and eliminate it. Will you make it out alive?

Gerty is a top-down rogue-lite twin-stick shooter with fully destructible environment. Carve your own path through replayable procedurally generated levels and create tactically advantageous situations to eliminate the alien threat in intense, tough but fair, action packed gameplay. Mine Juice crystals to upgrade your gear, discover alien structures, and eliminate the source of the alien threat in singleplayer or local co-op mode.

Features:

  • Test your mettle in skill based combat and try to avoid clutches of permanent death. Adjust the level of challenge to your liking with 5 difficulty levels and advanced settings.
  • Choose between 4 different characters all with unique skills and style of play. Further customize your character during your run with perks and purchasable gear.
  • Explore collapsed Juice mines that are teeming with alien life and structures. Interact with abandoned infrastructure, alien runes and altars.
  • Unlock new gear and characters with each tightly packed run. Ramp up the difficulty and brave the dangers once again!
