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.”

U24: The Raging Tides



In this update we take a look on the flow of the battle, to make it more engaging and skill-based.

Previously, when taking too much damage, Players had to retreat and wait to regenerate health. This limited the pace of the engagements and promoted overly cautious play.

This time, we're introducing instant Health Potions and Power Potions that drop from killed enemies during combat. These give the Player constant boost of health and weapon power, as long as he kills enemies efficiently. Let's get on with that steamrolling!

Here are some battle flow improvements we introduced:
  • Health Potions will now drop from monsters when Player is not at full health.
  • Player health regeneration has been reduced and its delay increased.
  • All special weapon powers now recharge in 60 seconds.
  • Power Potions (previously orbs) now drop three times as often and fully recharge special weapon powers.



Grab these in battle to instantly restore your weapon's special powers!


Hotfix 24b Notes
  • Piercer Bow's special power will now have wider area of effect to make hitting enemies easier.
  • Scroll of Conjured Spear now becomes Scroll of Thunder.
  • When the End Portal opens, it will now start attracting stronger and stronger enemies.


Update 24 Notes

New Stuff:
  • Red Shaman Familiars gained new demonic look!
  • Hunter Orcs, Green Shamans, Berserker Orcs and Shield Orcs have all learned new skills for Legendary Difficulty!
  • We're now sporting a brand new loading screen. Fancy!
  • New drop: Instant Health Potions.
  • Healthbars will now display Enemy's name and level.

Other Improvements:
  • Players can now choose degree of Play Area rotation.
  • High-FOV camera is now default desktop view, for those sweet, dynamic game captures.
  • Far away players will now be automatically teleported to the exit portal when its defense starts.
  • Reworked exit portal for better readability and performance.
  • Various VFX effects have been optimized to run better on slower computers
  • Power Orbs now got a new model and charging effect.
  • Fireball scroll will now deals more damage.
  • Max amount of gold Players can have have been increased.
  • New setting added deep in the menu that will stop anyone joining your games ever. We don't want you to find it.
  • Improved lighting in grass levels.
  • Improved permanence on slower PCs.

Bugfixes:
  • Fixed an issue where going through the end portal would sometime result in the game getting stuck. Thanks to UpstartCrowe for reporting this!
  • Fixed an issue where players waving arms would look stationary to other players.
  • Fixed some performance stutters during the mission end portal activation.
  • Epic enemies will no longer spawn right next to the entry portal on Adventure levels.
  • Fixed an issue where spawning epic orc on a Skyship would break it.
  • Arrows will no longer get stuck in the air when hitting enemy projectiles.
  • Fixed an issue where music would not play on client joining a game in progress.
    Berserker Orc will no longer have invincibility for a few seconds after turning red.

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.
