What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe that ROGUE SHIFT already has a lot to offer players, given that the majority of features and a large proportion of the content is already complete.

We think Early Access will be a great way to further build our community and we have confidence that the community in turn will help refine the game to its full potential.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to remain in Early Access no longer than 6 months.”

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

“After the Early Access release date, the majority of the remaining work relates to content, which is approximately 60% complete. Among other things, we plan to add the following to the full version:

- Chapter 3 of Story mode (Chapters 1 and 2 are done).
- One additional map for Doomed mode.
- One additional map for Escape mode.
- More enemy types.
- More weapon types.
- Probably more things that remain unforeseen!

Compared to the initial Early Access release, the final version will also be better balanced, more stable and more refined.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Approximately 90% of the core gameplay features are done. The game is very nearly feature-complete.

Approximately 60% of the content is done. The Early Access release includes all gameplay modes. It includes including Story mode chapters 1 and 2, Doomed mode (one map) and Escape modes (one map). It includes up to 4-player co-op for Doomed and Escape modes.

Gameplay balance is reasonable, but will be tuned aggressively during Early Access.”

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

“The price of the game will not change when we leave Early Access. We do not foresee any changes in the price for at least 12 months after the initial full release, excluding of course Discounts that will apply at various times.”

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

“Our main source of feedback and engagement is our Discord server. Most of the typical social media channels will also be available, including Twitter and Facebook. We want players to provide feedback and report bugs where it is most convenient.

We hope to get feedback from everyone about what they want to see, and where we can improve. Our game simply won't be half as good if we don’t listen to your feedback, and that starts with making sure we are as accessible as possible.”

About This Game

INTRODUCTION


ROGUE SHIFT is a high-intensity top-down shooter with rogue-lite elements and character progression, set on a harsh planet that will test your will to survive. To stay alive, you will pit yourself against hordes of relentless enemies in an unforgiving, hostile environment.

Level up, unlock perks, gain psionic abilities and find weapons to become progressively more powerful as you attempt to stay one step ahead of the enemy.

ROGUE SHIFT can be played using a keyboard & mouse, or as a twin-stick shooter using any compatible controller (XBox, PlayStation or generic equivalents).

STORY

When your dropship is shot down by supposedly friendly defences, you find yourself isolated. Your oxygen is running low, dangerous creatures lurk, and hazardous environments separate you from the nearest outpost. Before you can even think about finding answers, your immediate concern is just to survive the first five minutes.

FEATURE SUMMARY

  • Survive insanely intense battles against relentless enemy hordes.
  • Explore, loot and shop to build up your arsenal of psionics (powers) and weapons.
  • Level up and unlock perks to boost your character over time in a manner that suits your play-style.
  • Three distinct gameplay modes, all with online scoreboards.
  • Some modes include online co-op up to 4 players.

GAMEPLAY MODES

STORY: A single-player story mode with rogue-lite elements and character progression, spanning 3 chapters.

Advance through increasingly harder zones as you build up your arsenal of weapons and psionics to stay one step ahead of the enemy. You have one life. If you die, you must restart the chapter from the beginning. Complete a chapter without dying to unlock the next chapter. Gain XP and level up to unlock perks. You don't lose your perks when you die. Gain a slight edge with each run.

DOOMED: Survive against progressively harder waves of enemies for as long as you can.

Start with a standard base character with fast progression. Unlock one perk for each enemy wave you survive. Use shops and search for loot to rapidly build up your arsenal of weapons and psionics.

ESCAPE: Battle your way through waves of enemies to reach the exit.

Start with a standard base character with fast progression. Unlock one perk for each area you clear before you move on to the next area. Use shops and search for loot to rapidly build up your arsenal of weapons and psionics.
