What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We wanted to offer Metaverse Keeper through Steam’s Early Access program in order to get our players involved as soon as possible. We love the idea of having our community play and provide feedback that we can immediately use to improve the game.

Through the development of Metaverse Keeper, we plan to engage with our community to make sure our game is as fun as possible! Feedback given during these early stages will help shape future development as we head toward full release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The current plan is for Early Access to last about 3-6 months. During this stage of development, we will be making regular updates to features, content, and bug fixes.”

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

“The full version will have more:
  • Monsters and challenging bosses
  • Weapons, items, and Chip combinations
  • Metaverse agents to choose from
  • Game options, modes, and unlockable content
  • Network and online gameplay and server optimization

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, there are five different levels, four playable agents, support for more than 100 types of weapons and items, and over 160 different Chips to upgrade and customize your agents. We’ll be constantly tweaking and updating these features throughout Early Access, so stay tuned for announcements about new content!”

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

“The final price for full release hasn’t been determined yet, so you may see adjustments as we add more features and content.”

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

“We are incredibly grateful for any feedback from our community and will be actively adjusting our development plan based on what our players have to say. There are several ways our players can get in touch with us, and we’ll be posting and responding on our Twitter, Facebook, Discord, and Steam forum channels. We’re particularly interested in suggestions and ideas for future content, bug reports, and ways we can improve our online mode.”

Update Plan




Dear players,

Metaverse Keeper has been out for more than a week now. During this time we have received a lot of feedback and optimization suggestions from the players. We are very grateful to all friends who care and support Metaverse Keeper. Because of you, we believe that this game will only get better with time.

Since the EA release, we have introduced several updates to the game based on feedback provided by the players. These adjustments include: appropriately reduced difficulty of the game, optimized early-game experience, optimized server-side code, number of fixes aimed at disconnection-reconnection problems. You can give Metaverse Keeper another try to see if it will give you a better experience.

Right now we are working on several updates to the game.

We plan to balance the game's difficulty and controls in the initial adjusting phase. For example:

- Add difficulty options;
- Optimize the resource allocation in the multiplayer mode.
- Allow enabling/disabling of aim-assist.


We plan to introduce some game-related balance in the second phase. For example:

- Add multi-directional attacks;
- Decrease cooldown of the Evade abilities;
- Optimize variety of monsters simultaneously present in the same rooms.


At the same time we're working on:

- Continuous optimization of resource acquisition and related content in multiplayer;
- Continuous optimization of local and online co-ops.


Since some of the above adjustments will involve working with a lot of numbers related to weapons, chips and monster, it will take us some time to balance them out properly.

At the same time, we hope to maintain close communication and interaction with the players during the balancing process. We're planning to open a new beta branch of the game and invite you to participate in the internal beta tests, for those who would love to experience the latest updates first-hand. We will appreciate all kind of feedback.

We were pleasantly surprised by the number of people that play Metaverse Keeper together with friends. If you don't have someone to play the game together with, please consider joining the official discord to enjoy the wonders of cooperation.

About This Game

EXPLORE THE EVER-CHANGING BASTION




Four heroes from four different universes, each with their own special skills, have been called upon by the mysterious government of the Metaverse.

Long ago, a great cataclysm shook reality and created the Metaverse and its Bastion – a vast and mysterious ship drifting across space-time. Our heroes will board the Bastion with one goal in mind: uncover the secrets behind the cataclysm, stop the Boss, and bring balance back to the Metaverse.

Harnessing the power of their space-time abilities, death becomes a minor setback as our heroes will return again and again until this great evil is defeated. But death has a cost; the chaotic nature of the Metaverse will change the very Bastion itself – and no two attempts will ever be the same.

PLAY WITH FRIENDS AT YOUR HOME – OR EACH IN DIFFERENT UNIVERSES!




Join a band of friends and save the Metaverse together! Metaverse Keeper has both local and online co-op – so you can play together no matter where you are ... whether you're sitting on the same couch or each in your own Universe!

BACKSTORY: THE BIRTH OF THE METAVERSE




Eons ago, in another time and another reality, the civilization of planet Noah was the oldest and most advanced in the universe – so advanced that there came a time where technology allowed the planet's inhabitants to communicate across the space-time continuum ... and see into the future. With the blueprint of the entire Universe laid bare before them, they discovered that Noah was doomed – destined to disappear in a catastrophic event in the distant future.

It was then that a hero emerged. Harnessing the collective scientific knowledge of Noah, he claimed he could save the planet – even if it cost him his life. He bent space-time to his will – harnessing the might of these technological marvels – only to cause an even larger catastrophe. The specifics of his deeds, and even his own name, have long been forgotten – but Noah was saved. However, the question remained: At what cost?

Space-time had twisted in on itself. Stars, planets, and civilizations across the entire history of the Universe tangled together in a chaotic weave – creating the Metaverse. As an ever-changing mixture of what was, what is and what will (or could!) be, the Metaverse is a strange and dangerous place.

However, the so-called hero seemed to have his own mysterious reasons for causing this cataclysm. Since his sudden disappearance, and now ominous return, he became known as the enemy of the entire Metaverse.

He became The Boss.

TODAY: MEET OUR HEROES


Now the Metaverse is in peril again. The Boss is back and threatens to destroy all that’s left of reality. The united government of the Metaverse has called upon new heroes to challenge the looming darkness – and hopefully, restore balance to reality.

Four heroes have answered the call. Veterans of countless cosmic-level conflicts, these four have saved their own planets time after time. All bring their own unique combat style, skills, and talents to bear in their attempt to save the entirety of existence.

WONG: THE PROGRAMMER




A genius hacker who combines tech-savviness and serious hand-to-hand combat skills, Wong’s special skill is the Matrix Shuttle – allowing him to pass through enemies while also dealing damage. Through the use of Chips, he can increase his total health, stamina or damage.

ZOE: THE BOMBER GIRL




As a demolition expert, Zoe is knowledgeable about (and happy to use) everything and anything that goes BOOM! Her special skill is the Rocket Leap, which allows her to dodge attacks in a powerful leap and deal damage with both takeoff and landing. With Chips, she can increase the number of bombs she carries and their damage – and she regains HP when defeating enemies with a bomb.

BROOKS: THE ROCK STAR




Don’t be fooled, Brooks is more than just a pretty face and an angelic voice. Wielding the power of "rock 'n' roll" itself, his special skill provides Brooks a dodge with 3 charges that refill over time. He can use Chips to summon extra healing orbs when picking up Hearts of Life, exchange Stamina for HP, and increase his max Stamina or critical damage.

HOWARD: THE ASTRONAUT




Howard is a veteran explorer and scientist who has spent his life charting the strange corners of the Metaverse. With his special skill, he can teleport forward and generate two portal gates that he can travel between for a short period of time. He can use Chips to summon energy orbs in different situations, increase their damage, and restore shield points.

BUT… WHAT ARE THESE CHIPS?




Chips are remnants from the old Universe – ancient Noah technology that survived the cataclysm. No one knows exactly how they work – only that each grants different powers. With the energy gathered by discovering new rooms, players can purchase them from Chip Machines and use them to equip various passive effects – or customize their weapons to create more powerful builds that can adapt to different battles, enemies, and bosses. Alternatively, Chips can be used to power a character’s special talents.
