What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“While we develop the next entry in the Stronghold series, a few folk at Firefly Studios have been taking a peek underground at a different kind of strategy game! MetaMorph: Dungeon Creatures retains some of our DNA in its fast-paced hero switching and tactical combat, however the action genre is still new to us. Our aim is to make a fun, thinking man’s dungeon crawler with the help of the community who have been playing our games for 15 years, but also new players who enjoy trying out games that are still in development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“While we have an update plan for MetaMorph this will likely change depending on community feedback and the development of each free update. We will leave Early Access once we're happy with the variety of characters, levels and enemies, with additional content a possibility after full release.”

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

“The full version of MetaMorph is planned to feature an expanded roster of heroes to choose from, levels to liberate and hideous creatures to slay! As the number of characters grows new levels will offer additional layers of challenge, with new enemy types and traps pushing your hero switching, cooldown management and combat skills to the limit.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is largely stable with some minor bugs and areas where we intend to add polish. There are currently four heroes to select, upgrade and morph between across more than 80 levels. The Rabbit (Normal Type), Ogre (Ice), Nymph (Fire) and Rat Man (Poison) give players different elements to experiment with and crush their enemies, along with a host of powers to acquire and level up. This version of MetaMorph is intended to offer a good chunk of the core gameplay with some extra content planned in the form more levels, an expanded team of playable heroes, unique abilities and enemy types.”

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

“Pricing for the final version of MetaMorph will be announced close to full release and will be higher than the game’s pricing during Early Access.”

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

“We’ll be paying close attention to feedback from players, using this to inform combat and level design. Updates on the current state of development and new features will be communicated with vlogs, trailers, Steam community posts and in the forums. We’d also urge players to follow us on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube for direct communication and quick answers about the game! Our aim is to keep players informed in return for their valued feedback on new content and features.”

About This Game

From the creators of the critically acclaimed Stronghold!

MetaMorph: Dungeon Creatures is a tactical dungeon crawler which draws heavy inspiration from ARPG such as Gauntlet, Magicka and Diablo.

  • EXPLORE a web of trap filled, monster infested lairs as you work your way deeper underground.
  • MASTER tactical combat, elemental powers and character switching to escape a brutal fate.
  • TRICK your enemies by turning the dungeon’s saw blades, bombs and boulders against them!
  • MORPH between powerful spirit forms, shapeshifting to counter and crush enemy hordes.
  • CONQUER the dungeon by finding and defeating each Lord of Death once and for all.

Plan your attack and lure enemies into the path of heavy boulders, flying saw blades, bombs and whatever else the dungeon throws at you! Select your hero loadout, upgrade their elemental abilities and morph between them at will as you explore each death-infested lair. Charge into enemies as the lightning fast Rabbit, crush them with the monstrous Ogre and burn whatever remains with the Nymph’s Inferno!

Customise your team of heroes for each level and transform between them to survive! Freeze poisonous creatures in their tracks, melt ice elementals into the dungeon floor or simply cleave them in two with a well-timed Sword Flurry. Experiment with new morphs as you conquer a series of increasingly challenging lairs, collecting and upgrading the powers of fallen heroes as you descend ever deeper into the dungeon that claimed them.
