What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The VR platform is still in its infancy, and developers are still figuring out the works when it comes to game mechanics and general user experience. Some people feel nauseated when moving about, others do not, and hardware has yet to meet an industry standard. We get it. But we also get that players are hungry for something with more substance. We want to provide this, and being in Early Access allows us to get unfiltered feedback from you, the community, and use that to tweak the game’s direction and improve the overall experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We don’t expect Early Access to last more than 9-12 months.”

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

“The full launch version of Karnage Chronicles will feature two extra classes, additional content including numerous monster types, additional RPG elements with player progression, hand-crafted Steam Trading Cards, a full range of Steam Achievements, and full 1-4 player co-op (with friendly fire, so watch your back).”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable. There will be bugs in need of fixing and optimization to be done, and some features and play areas have not yet been added, but overall we believe that the current state of the game is a decent representation of the finished product.”

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

“Pricing of the final launch version of Karnage Chronicles is yet to be decided. We're likely to raise the price during Early Access to reflect that the game is closer to a finished state, but the overall Early Access price will be lower than the final launch version.”

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

“We want feedback! Both the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly will help us improve the game. What aspect of the game do you find enjoyable, what do you dislike, and what bugs are you encountering? We want to know everything so we can improve the experience.”

Trading Cards, Backgrounds and 8-bit Emoticons



Art should be shared and what better way is there than to share it through Steam Trading Cards? Today, we introduce our first series of trading cards, and they contain quite a few sneak peaks of what’s to come in future updates.

Multiplayer – getting close!

Dear Community, first of all a big thank you for your patience.

Since patch #11 we have been working late getting multiplayer ready (2-4 player co-op, including possibility for a little bit of PvP action for those who enjoy this). There is still a fair bit of work left but we are creeping closer to the point where brave souls who would like to participate in early testing can do so. We envision three stages to the rollout:

Stage 1 - closed testing on our Steam Test Branch. Invites only. It will be a buggy experience with latency issues.
Stage 2 - open testing on our Steam Test Branch. Anyone can join. Less buggy than stage 1 and some unresolved latency issues.
Stage 3 - update live version with multiplayer. Should be loads of fun with few remaining issues. Crossing fingers.

Hope to see you join us for a bit of multiplayer fun, with «friendly fire» turned on :steammocking:

You can follow the progress of multiplayer on this forum on Steam and at the same time apply for access to Stage 1; https://steamcommunity.com/app/611160/discussions/4/

And here’s a link to a first impression Youtube video made by Stage 1 - Early Testers playing co-op this weekend; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=868yImh-FVI&feature=youtu.be


Cheers,
The Trolls

“Karnage Chronicles is a very ambitious title that lets you choose between several types of locomotion, takes full advantage of a unique inventory system, makes use of refreshing combat mechanics and much more!”
Nathie

“It's really good! [...] The ambiance of the levels were perfect, the character design was interesting, they had voiced parts that actually made sense, they told a story, and the two different modes that you could play as was totally unique and didn't feel like the same thing at all.”
CryMor Gaming

“I am absolutely blown away by this. The graphics are gorgeous, the combat is really good, the audio, the atmosphere, I mean, this thing got it all. And it's still in Early Access.”

About This Game

Every five thousand years the planets align and create a rift in the fabric of cosmos. It’s prior to such an event that this story unfolds. Play as a Murkwraith, an undying knight barred from Death’s domain, and cursed to eternal servitude for sins committed eons ago. Experience a rich story that takes you on a perilous journey through dark dungeons filled with monsters, traps, puzzles, treasure and more.

  • Karnage Chronicles is designed from ground up to fully immerse you in the magic of VR.
  • Choose between several types of locomotion by accessing settings in-game. On top of this we fully support Virtuix Omni for a truly immersive experience.
  • Take full advantage of an inventory system made specifically for VR.
  • Unparalleled anti-wiggle system for close quarter combat. In this game you cannot tickle your enemies to death as the velocity of your swing defines the damage you do to your enemies.
  • Customizable weapon presets allow for quick switching between weapons in combat, and there are quickslots for easy access to consumables like potions and food.
  • Parry incoming attacks with your weapon or block them with a shield. Take full advantage of room-scale VR to dodge and sidestep arrows or magic hurled at you from afar.
  • Random loot and hidden treasure awaits. Collect coins, find trash items to sell or random gear to wear.
  • Drop items for safekeeping in your very own room. Visit a shop run by an Imp where you can spend your hard-earned coins to upgrade your gear. Solve quests and gain magical rewards in return.
  • Play as an archer or a warrior, with more classes to come.

Go forth and claim your place among the heroes of legend, Murkwraith.
