What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our team is still developing our game Unformed, and we hope players' community can coorperate with us to make it an outstanding soul-like game. Now the fundamental features and rules of Unformed are finished already, including the engine development, battle mechanism and storyline. However, some facotrs like the number of stages, bugs' repairing, design of weapons and skills are still in process, thus we sincerely need the feedback and support from players in order to polish our game to the highest level as it could be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The early access stage would keep about one year to one year and a half, but during the period our team would keep publishing new content, such as new stages, boss fight, weapons and monsters with a stable frequency.”

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

“EA process:
3 weapons
3.5 stages
Full mechanism
Discount price
key clues about storyline
Full version:
At least 8 stages
10 weapons
Clothes-change system
Complete NPC / storyline
More weapon skills”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“· Allow players to create a character to go through 3.5 stages
· During stages, players can leveling up characters, fortifying weapons, buy items.
· Gather pieces of clues, to have a glimpse of the whole story
· Exprience several well-designed and breath-taking bossfights
· Some bugs still existing, we really do apologize for that
· The visual style / design still developing, advice/feedback are welcomed”

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

“We will have a discount during the early access stage, and after the whole game is complete, the price will return to the level that it supposed to have.”

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

“All the players can leave their comments/feedback in Steam Discussion Board. Every single member of our team will read them very carefully, and communicate with players as soon as possible. Meanwhile we will have some online chatting groups in order to talk with players so that we can react to some feedback more instantly.”

About This Game

Unformed is one of the most Souls-like Metroidvania 2D horizontal ARPG. Players will explore the eastern dark world, seeking the astonishing truth behind the unspeakable mysterious events.

Dark Souls series (include Bloodborne and Sekiro) are always our studio's favorite, and developing our own soul-like game has been our target since the studio established. Every single player has his/her own understanding about what the most "soul-like" factors are in games, and our game, Unformed is the our studio's first answer sheet. Perhaps there would be no fancy special effects nor eye-dizzying battles, but we do hope players could experience the tesion of exploring dangerous stages and the accomplishment of beating invincible enemies just like they did in Dark Souls series, and enjoy our spooky eastern myths story.

Our game, Unformed is still in early access stage. In the next one year and a half we will keep polishing the current existing content and publishing new content such as stages / enemies / stories etc. Also we will communicate with players on Steam about our developing plan. If any bugs / mistakes happen in our game, please let us know by leaving comment on Steam, we will react as fast as we can.
