What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We wish to make the game available for all the interested players in near-complete state to see what aspects of the game they will point out as the ones needing extra polish. As with all early releases, we’d also like to find any errors that may impact the experience. Our game has a large procedurally-generated aspect, which is best verified with the help of active players, so it’s very important for the quality of the end product to let the fans experiment with the gameplay as soon as possible and know their feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The Early Access period will take approximately 6 months.”

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

“During the Early Access phase we intend to polish the interface, add the planned elements (graphical assets, adventures, gameplay mechanics), implement the Steam Workshop mod support and tweak the gameplay balance. To summarize our intentions – we want to make the features we currently have in game the best they can be. This doesn’t mean the game won’t receive support after the 1.0 release. We will bring even more content to the game as completely free updates.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable and mostly feature-complete, both in single player and co-op mode. Most of the basic mechanics, such as building, resource gathering and crafting are fully functional. The main quest and an array of side quests are also fully available. As for content yet to be implemented, some mechanics, adventures and graphical assets are missing. The game is slated to be polished during Early Access phase, so it may include mechanics that need to be tweaked, some stats for characters and items may be unbalanced, some errors may occur and the written texts may include typos as well.”

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

“The game will be most probably priced the same in Early Access and in the final build state, but Early Access version may be subjected to special discounts during the run.”

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

“We intend to follow closely all the comments and discussion on the forums and take those into account whenever possible when making changes and improvements to the game. We’re also ready to participate actively in discussions to ensure the community’s voice will benefit our game in the best way possible.”

About This Game

Thea 2: The Shattering is a follow-up to the successful Thea: The Awakening, which brings the idea of innovative genre hybrid, with elements of turn-based, 4X strategy, survival, RPG and a card game, to entirely new and thoroughly polished level.

The player takes on a role of a deity from the Slavic mythology-inspired pantheon and as such, controls the fate of a small flock of believers struggling for survival. This goal can be achieved in many ways, from diplomacy to war, from exploring to conquering, but any playstyle will surely lead to completely unique adventures thanks to the procedurally generated environments. Rich options, from crafting to town-building system, as well as the co-op multiplayer gameplay, make Thea 2 an ideal choice for tactically minded players, who are up for a challenge.

Key features:

  • Explore rich, procedurally generated and diverse new environments and biomes.
  • Expand your influence in the world, build towns, widen your territories or choose the much tougher path of a nomad.
  • Exterminate your way to victory, battle through the vast array of creatures or simply strive to survive till sunrise.
  • Exploit the many wonders of the land - discover and combine resources, collect materials and craft them into your equipment.
  • Become a deity of Thea and direct your Chosen to victory in a world inspired by Slavic myth and folklore.
  • Play together - co-op mode for up to 3 players allows you to build your pantheon with friends.
  • Choose your playstyle - become a warlord or a diplomat, or simply remain an outsider wandering the world in search of glory.
  • Survive any way you can and choose your challenge style as you resolve conflicts via battle, mental or spiritual challenges.
  • Free DLCs, built-in adventures editor and other modding tools.
