What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Releasing into Early Access not only allows the community to help fund the game's development, it's also a great way for us to improve the game through player feedback. We have a clear vision for what Vengeful Rites should play and feel like, but we're a small team of two brothers. Getting the game into the hands of more people and using their insight to further refine the mechanics and overall experience will help us ensure that the final product is as fun and as polished as possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“About 12 months. Polish and bug fixes will be included in frequent updates, with 3 major content updates planned before final release.”

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

“Moving forward we plan to add additional content in the form of 3 new chapters. Each chapter will consist of a new zone with a new dungeon, presenting the player with an additional 2-3 hours of gameplay, new spells, new weapons, new puzzles and new enemies to challenge. Our goal is for the final game to have a playtime of roughly a dozen hours and transport the player to a variety of locations.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently players have access to the first chapter of the game. This includes a tutorial, the starting zone and the first dungeon. Melee combat, archery and magic are all in, as are upgrades in the form of a perk tree, new weapons and weapon modifications. Players can explore the world of Vengeful Rites using sliding locomotion, teleportation and climbing.”

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

“We're currently undecided on this but leaning toward raising the price for final release.”

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

“Player feedback is of the utmost importance here. We'd like to create a game that sets a standard for fun in VRPGs and we can't do that without knowing what that standard should be. We have a good idea of what needs to be done, but the more input we receive the more we can align that vision with what players want. To that end we have a discord set up and will be closely monitoring the Steam forums for any and all player feedback we can find. Specific events to more actively include the community in the development process are planned, as well.”

Patch Notes 11/18/18 and Thank you!

Hello, everyone! We've got another patch for you with some bug fixes and adjustments.

Before I post that stuff, though, we want to take a moment to thank everyone for their feedback and the kind reviews. As of this post we have a score of 100% positive reviews. It's awesome just to have enough reviews to actually have a score, but to have them all be positive is amazing. We're glad you're all enjoying the game and super grateful for all the support and feedback that will help us make it even better! Thank you!

On to the patch notes!

• Corrected a mistake that wouldn't allow LIV to run properly while in the intro/options scene. Now it should work correctly from start to finish. Let's see those MR videos!

• Fixed a bug where enemies would occasionally freeze up in terror after losing aggro on you and refuse to attack again.

• Fixed a bug where previous checkpoints wouldn't always turn off after loading in to a later one, allowing you to backtrack and have your location saved earlier in the dungeon.

• Fixed a bug where the final boss would wait for you to approach before attacking.

• Corrected some missing geometry/collision around the dungeon.

• Added a new attack to the first boss's move set and reworked some of the RNG he has. Also fixed a bug where blasting him with Kinetic Thrust would prevent him from hitting you/the environment with his melee attacks.

• Corrected the tooltip for meteor shards disappearing prematurely if you walked away before completing the prompt.

That's it for now, everyone! Happy adventuring!

A small patch.

We just uploaded a patch that addresses a bug where the spider boss's minions could continue spawning after her death, keeping the player locked in combat until reloading/dying.

In this patch there's also some tweaks to the first boss. We don't want to spoil anything but the intended strategy for defeating him is now a bit easier to pull off.

Additionally, some changes have been made to prevent the use of teleportation while transporting to/from the Isle of the Divines.

Keep the feedback coming, everyone! We appreciate your help in making Vengeful Rites the best it can be. Thanks!
