What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Although the game is not yet finished, several persons asked me to release Rogue Empire in early access.
There are already many many hours of content done but more is coming. Also the game still needs to undergo some feature and polish builds.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in early access for some months. Ideally I hope it to be 2 to 4 months in early access.”

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

“My main milestone for the full version is to have the main campaign finished a 100% (lets say currently at 85%).
Other than that there are the following additions planned along the way:
  • Artifacts
  • An additional gear tier
  • More world map events
  • More enemy types
  • More bosses
  • Additional abilities for all the classes
  • More optional dungeons/story arcs

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Main general features up to this date:
  • At this time there are 7 races and 5 playable classes
  • Eghoss campaign fully playable to the end.
  • Infinite unique challenge dungeon is fully playable!
  • Main campaign complete by 85%.
  • More than 70 different enemies you can encounter.
  • Around 25 abilities for each class.
  • More than 35 usable spells.
  • Around 40 hours of content if you are very good ;)

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

“Yes. EA supporters will be rewarded for supporting Rogue Empire game before it is fully released.

The price will raise when the game get out of EA.”

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

“I love community involvement into features and suggestions. The game at its current state would not have been reached if it wasn't for a very active and supportive community.

You can reach me through the steam game's community hub, social media or discord. I am happy to answer your questions and receive your suggestions.

One thing always to keep in mind is that I do need to prioritize feature development. So some good suggestions might not make to the release.”

New Beta Branch Update 0.9.0-d

IMPORTANT: How to try the beta branch?

Steps to try out the beta branch of the game:
  • In your game library right click on "Rogue Empire -> Properties"
  • In properties select the "Betas" tab
  • On the drop down select the version: beta - Beta testing for next release
This branch has logs enabled to be more verbose so that I get more info from you guys when you sent them to me (this might make it a little more annoying if you get an error).

New Features

  • Added a late game "town".
  • Added the shadow gate.
  • Added several new levels for the main story arc.
  • Added a new boss.
  • Added option to skip leaderboards when dying.
  • Dying is more fun now as you can see your character shatter and its soul fly away. ;)
  • Added several new random encounters on the worldmap.
  • Added a new friendly mid game "town" to the world map with specific merchants.
  • Updated skins of enemies that made little sense to be attacking you ;).

Balance Changes

  • Buffed up human druid starting weapon.
  • In addition to the progressive level dependent XP awarded by enemies, added a baseline xp amount making kills at lower levels feel more relevant. Adjusted the progressive portion of the xp granted accordingly.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed issue where using auto explore near enemies would not use up any energy.
  • Fixed bug where a shield in the offset item slot would count towards armor coverage.

  • Adjusted lightning of the the different map types.

Shadow Dungeon Tile Set preview:

Note: Several changes to the map where made and I am not 100% sure on backwards compatibility regarding the new locations and main quest progress.

I hope you enjoy this update to the beta build! I am sorry for the delays again but I was sick for a little more than a week :(

As always feel free to pop up at discord and discuss with me about whatever you want!

Cheers and happy crawling!

PS: Next update on the beta build is probably the latest before merging it into the default. This includes the "last boss" of the campaign ;)
