What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access allows for me to engage with the community in the development process. I am now able to make a game the way the community imagined it to be played and improve it up to its maximum potential. I can receive community feedback while people are actively slashing their way through monsters and exploring vast dungeons.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately from 7-10 months, depending on the game's reception. With more feedback, I'll be looking to add much more content, prolonging the Early Access period.”

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

“Along with many new weapons, enemies, and game modes, the full version is set to include what the community suggests. My focus will be on the addition of content and polishing existing content. The feeling of increasing difficulty and progression throughout the dungeons has a lot of areas for improvement before the full version is released.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Shadows in the Darkness in its current state provides hours of playtime with random generation. It is a fully playable game, and Early Access is being used to enhance the experience to its maximum potential.”

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

“The price may change slightly depending on the amount of content added and feedback received.”

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

“The community will guide what is added to Shadows in the Darkness. Players can propose ideas and concepts on the Steam forums or the r/scornz subreddit.”

About This Game

Shadows in the Darkness is an intense, cooperative roguelite, letting players venture down into the depths of mysterious dungeons to eradicate the darkness beneath. Play alone or with your friends to explore random dungeons, collect unique loot, and fight dangerous enemies.


  • Vast randomly generated dungeons
    -Everytime a new game begins, a massive system of 21 floors is generated. Huge libraries, small hallways, and open spaces await in this underground network.
  • Fully functional 4 player co-op or singleplayer
    -Explore the dungeons with friends! Create tactics to distract enemies, manage the various loot found, and dominate the final boss together.
    -This doesn't mean you can't play alone, however. The dungeon difficulty is fully adjustable.
  • 4 intense boss fights
    -As you descend into the dungeons, tough bosses await to stop you in your tracks. Create a plan and figure out how to kill them before they kill you.
  • Dangerous, wandering enemies
    -Fight orcs, goblins, slimes, spiders, and much more in the deeper floors. Enemies wander about, allowing for you to coordinate attacks and ambush to increase your likelihood of survival.
  • Easy to learn, difficult to master
    -There are very few controls to learn throughout the game, but in order to be able to defeat the dungeon, you must learn the enemies, manage your resources, and fight your way to victory.
  • Full physics-based item system
    -Physics-based items allow for a fighting system based on skill.
  • Unique inventory system
    -Inventory does not go by slots, rather it is managed solely on space. Open up your pack, and place items in a fashion that allow for the maximum amount of space to be filled.
    -You have a single holster on your back for weapons allowing for quick access.
  • Lots of loot
    -Find various swords, wands, potions, and scrolls scattered in chests and rooms. There are a wide variety of items to fight with or use but look carefully, as the best might be hidden somewhere in the darkest corners...

Shadows in the Darkness is in Early Access, so please be mindful of all bugs or issues, and leave suggestions in the Steam forums or on the r/scornz subreddit. I'll work my hardest to remove and fix found bugs as soon as possible. Thank you!
