What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're out to build the best VR fantasy action game out there. We have a plan set out, and want to engage the players to hear what mechanics are most fun! When you're working with a close-knit community, the magic happens.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until first months of 2017”

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

“The full game will feature procedurally generated levels, each with a few randomized quests along the way. There will be a few unlockable player classes, all with drastically different skillsets. Players will gain upgrades, sidegrades and skins for classes and their equipment as mission rewards. Along the game, players will also collect "memories" - interactive dioramas that will slowly unravel the story of the world of Trickster and lead up to final conclusion.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game includes two game modes - Adventure Mode, with procedurally generated levels and quests to complete - and Wave Attack, to practice your Orc handling skills. Orcs won't give you an easy time. There are about 8 different enemies, each with individual skillset. The sky arena changes randomly every round so you'll have to move around to have the advantage.”

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

“Finished game will have a higher price. Price will increase along the development process with big, game changing updates.”

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

“Update early, update often. Get feedback on experimental features as soon as they're ready to roll out. Expand things that shine the most. Don't waste time on stuff nobody uses. That's how we do things around here.”

U26: The Stormchaser




Greetings Orc Hunters!
In today's update we're bringing you the biggest challenge yet - cross your blade with Ulfric the Stormchaser and win the mighty Staff of Storms. Be careful though - Ulfric is said to be the most powerful orc chieftain in the Broken Lands. His melee prowess, his grasp of ancient magic and unparalleled command over troops on the battlefield all contribute to this reputation.

Good news for all completionists out there - Steam Achievements are now added to Trickster! Grab those internet points and show others your orc hunting expertise.

Good luck and happy hunting!

Scoring three headshots at once, while cutting down a jumping orc mid-flight. Trickster is designed to let you shine. Practice your accuracy and finesse, hunt for the weakpoints and fence the orcish chieftain in this skill oriented fantasy action.




Orcs that come equipped in anything, but a lengthy health bar. Each of them packs a special set of moves and skills. You will need all your wits to escape their abilities and land those headshots. But when you do learn to outsmart them, you'll feel like a true warrior. Because, guess what - you just became one.




Ever been dreaming about flipping burgers in virtual reality? We neither! Unsheathe the magic sword and give orcs hell among the ever changing landscape of burning skies and floating islands. Trickster features procedural level system that lets you visit endlessly different places over three biomes.




Trickster features two different game modes and three difficulty levels, so you can pick what type of fun speaks to you the most.
  • Adventure Mode - Take on the orcs in the procedurally generated levels, with enticing quests to complete.
  • Wave Attack - Defend the portal to your home world from the orcish horde.
