What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are a small team of developers who are creating a complex game with a number of interconnected and emergent systems. To achieve the best results, it’s important for us to receive early feedback from our community so we could see how players interact with the game’s mechanics. Thanks to this, we shall be able to make timely adjustments based on players’ actions and suggestions, find design weaknesses and set correct priorities. We’ve been using this approach since closed alpha and beta tests and it proved to be very helpful.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate Early Access to take 1.5 - 2 years.”

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

“We always envisioned Stoneshard to be an expansive, ambitious game, so we still have quite a number of new features to introduce. As for now our roadmap includes the following:

  • Constant content updates (new abilities, items, enemies and so on)
  • Expanded global map and new settlements
  • Stealth system
  • Bosses
  • Crafting, cooking and alchemy
  • Caravan system
  • Fully fledged RPG quests
  • Gods and worship
  • Improved AI
  • Story mode
  • Improved optimization and game stability
  • And much more

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The basic gameplay including fighting system, dungeon exploration and character leveling is pretty much in place. The current version of the game includes:

  • 5-6 hours of content (per gaming session)
  • 1 settlement
  • 11x11 tiles global map
  • 2 types of procedurally generated dungeons
  • 4 category of enemies - Brigands, Undead, Vampires & Beasts (~60 in total)
  • 102 abilities
  • 200+ various items
  • Economy
  • Health system
  • Psyche system
  • Procedurally generated quests

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

“Yes, we plan to increase the game’s price as we add new content and mechanics.”

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

“It’s very important for us to have a direct dialogue with our community. To ensure this we have a number of ways to involve players in the development process:
  • Steam discussions
  • Our Discord server
  • Special polls and questionnaires on relevant issues

About This Game



Stoneshard is a challenging turn-based RPG set in an open world. Experience the unforgiving life of a medieval mercenary: travel across the war-torn kingdom, fulfill contracts, fight, mend your wounds and develop your character without any restrictions.

EXPLORE THE RAVAGED LANDS



  • Open World
    War always leaves its mark: villages lie in ruins, dungeons are infested with monsters and old roads are abandoned. Travel across Aldor and learn more about its past.
  • Economy
    The wartime economy is ruthless, but it also presents many opportunities: fulfill contracts, hunt for treasure, trade in a variety of goods and travel the land to earn your fortune.

CHOOSE YOUR PATH



  • Character Development
    Experiment with 100+ abilities and 200+ equipment pieces without any class or level restrictions. Create your very own playstyle!
  • Enemy Variety
    Take part in intense battles against numerous factions. Brigands, abominable cults, the undead - all of them require a unique approach.
  • Tactical Battles
    There is no hand-holding. Only the thoughtful ones shall prevail - plan a few turns ahead, adapt to your surroundings and fully utilize your character’s strengths.

SURVIVE AGAINST THE ODDS



  • Health System
    Master the simple but deep health system: cauterize bleeding wounds, relieve pain with alcohol and drugs, practice bloodletting and heal your maladies with various concoctions.
  • Psyche
    Different in-game situations have a distinct influence on your character’s mental condition. High morale may turn the tide in your favor when fighting even the most hopeless of battles, while low sanity brings panic attacks and paranoia.
  • Permadeath
    Do you like risk? Then try out the Ironman mode, where every decision is irreversible and your character dies once and for all.

PLANNED UPDATES

    New settlements, including three majestic cities. New enemy factions: the mysterious Deep Dwellers and the ruthless Hive. Even more activities, equipment, enemies and abilities.

    Gather your caravan: upgrade it, find new routes and recruit followers - their skills and abilities will surely come in handy. Feeling tired? Return to your camp to hear fresh stories or just rest by the fire.
  • Devotion
    Devote yourself to one of the aspects of the enigmatic deity. But remember: every blessing has
    its price. Are you ready to make a pact?

    To solve the mystery of the Stoneshards, you’ll have to visit dozens of exciting locations, make decisions with long-lasting consequences and slay a number of ferocious bosses.
