What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Klei has used Early Access for all of our games since Don't Starve started back in 2012. We strongly believe that developing a game with the help of an audience leads to a better game!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We don't have a concrete launch date picked out, but we are expecting development to take somewhere around 6-12 months. This may change as we incorporate player feedback - we don't believe in shipping games until we are happy with them!”

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

“The full version will have a third playable character and campaign. The existing campaigns will get more quest variation and card content, and the card balance will be refined. Our officially supported localisations will launch with 1.0.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the current game, you can play through two complete character campaigns, and an early version of a quick-play brawl mode for one of the characters. There are 15 levels of unlockable difficulty, and more than 600 unique cards to learn across two distinct card battle modes. Beating the two campaigns for the first time on the easiest difficulty settings takes most players about 10 hours.”

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

“We are planning to raise the price this summer, to reflect the growing size of the game. Thanks for supporting us early!”

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

“Within the game players can press F8 at any time to send us feedback with screenshots, logs, and saves attached. We have been using this system, and our forums at https://forums.kleientertainment.com throughout the alpha period to engage directly with our players.”

About This Game


Griftlands is a deck-building rogue-like where you fight and negotiate your way through a broken-down sci-fi world. Every decision is important, be it the jobs you take, the friends you make, or the cards you collect. Death comes quickly, but each play offers new situations and strategies to explore.

At this stage of development you can play as Sal or Rook, with a third character and campaign in development. Sal is an adventurer out for profit and revenge. Rook is an aging spy working his own agenda. Expect regular updates, including new cards, quests and characters as we work on the game with community feedback!

Battle Challenging Bosses

Test your combat decks against powerful foes with unique mechanics and attacks.

Build a Team - or Buy One!

Hire mercenaries, find pets, or impose upon your friends to accomplish your goals.

Master Hundreds of Cards

Each character has unique negotiation and combat decks to draft from. Get powerful item cards from fallen foes, or as rewards.

Decisions Matter

Killing foes may incur the wrath of their friends, but sparing them leaves a dangerous piece on the board. Choose wisely, everyone remembers everything you do!

Welcome to Havaria

Each playable character's story takes place in a unique environment, with different factions and locations to explore and exploit.

Explore A Broken-Down Sci-Fi World

The world of Havaria is a harsh place, full of harsher denizens. Explore lush, hand-illustrated environments full of people who want to kill you.

Playing Politics For Keeps

Each character has a factional allegiance and an opinion of you. Play politics between rivals, and try to capture the most powerful social boons. But watch out -- doublecross the wrong person, and you'll be subject to their bane!

Outwit or Overpower

Overcome obstacles with the power of your fists - or your words. You'll need to pick your cards and play them right if you're going to survive. Build two decks simultaneously, balancing the tradeoffs of each.


Learn from each attempted run through the various stories of the Griftlands. Encounter different combinations of enemies, quests, and events every time you play. Your fate is determined by your choices, and by fate.
