What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is 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. Beyond that, Early Access helps us to fund development of the game as we make it. We're currently working on the game full time and sales in Early Access will help make sure we can continue to do that until the game is finished.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect to exit Early Access in summer 2021.”

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

“The game is now content complete, with the campaign fully playable from beginning to end. Before exiting early access we'd like to polish up certain points of contention for the player such as the tutorial and implement a means of using fast travel. Beyond that, we intend to add more story elements such as lore books to read and add general polish and bug fixes where necessary.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is content complete. It's fundamentally the full game, just missing some polish that we'd like to add before exiting early access.”

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

“We're not considering raising the price at this time. We feel the current price offers a good value for the content the game provides.”

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.”

“This game is phenomenal. I love it!”

“Vengeful Rites VR is by far the best adventure game in VR at the moment! The amount of gameplay this title has is insane!”

“A must-buy if you enjoy this genre. I'm really surprised that it was made by such a small team but still managed this level of quality.”

About This Game

VR has been around for several years now, but everywhere we look we still mostly find short "experiences" with little content and even less depth. Vengeful Rites aims to change that by bringing a proper adventure to VR. Your journey through the game will take you across different locales and dungeons as you fend off vicious enemies, search for hidden treasures, solve a variety of puzzles, defeat epic bosses and more. You'll use swords, bows, magic and your wits to overcome the many challenges that await. You'll master new techniques, improve your stats and skills, learn new spells and upgrade your gear with purchased, found and crafted weapons and rings. Your journey to the Otherworld will be fraught with peril from the beginning, but with the myriad tools at your disposal, you'll have all you need to dispatch your would-be dispatchers. Adventure awaits!

Smooth/Teleportation locomotion supported.

The Story
The Serafin Brotherhood has stood as a shield to protect mankind from the likes of goblins and monsters since time immemorial, but its days of glory are long behind it. When Dragore, a disgraced member returns to slay your mentor, you're left as the final Serafin and the only one who can avenge your fallen master while putting an end to Dragore's plan to overrun the world with Others.

The Combat
As a Serafin, you're not limited to a single means of dealing with your enemies. You've got swords, bows and magic all available to you to use as you see fit.

Swords

Waggle to win doesn't exist in Vengeful Rites. Sword strikes require you to swing like you mean it, and enemies won't roll over without a fight. Sword fights require you to constantly shift between defending yourself with well timed parries and taking your opportunities to land strikes when you can.

Magic

As a Serafin, you're capable of conjuring magic directly into your hands. By mastering the different disciplines of magic: Destruction, Protection, Restoration and Kinesis, you can handle anything Dragore and his minions throw at you. With intuitive gestures and multiple spells in each discipline, conjuring magic has never felt more natural and reactive.

Archery

Bows can be the deadliest tool in your arsenal, but they require the most skill. With a well placed headshot, especially if you find your arrow on fire, you can deal huge amounts of damage to any unsuspecting enemies you might encounter.


The Customization
Throughout your journey you'll unlock perks to specialize in the different disciplines of combat. Classes are not a thing in Vengeful Rites, and while you'll be expected to use all the tools given to you, having a focus on swords, bows or magic will help you handle the many challenges you'll face with more of an emphasis on your preferred playstyle. With enough specialization, you can unlock devastating abilities to take full advantage of your chosen focus--like powerful two handed spells or the ability to imbue your arrows with magic!

Equipment plays a role, too. Meteor shards can be used to enchant swords with useful abilities like lifesteal or lightning. Scepters can be substituted for swords for the more magically inclined to have some additional ranged attacks and better mana management. Crafted rings give options to refine certain abilities or modify how you handle different situations.

Difficulty settings will keep things as straightforward or as challenging as you like and can be changed on the fly as necessary.

Basically what I'm saying is that replayability is a thing.

Your wits are your best weapon!
All throughout your adventure you'll come across obstacles that can't be overcome with brute force alone. You'll need to figure out how to solve puzzles, bypass obstacles and capitalize on the vulnerabilities of the many bosses you'll encounter.


Join the conversation!
It's not all doom and gloom. You'll encounter a few friendly faces in your travels, as well. With voice recognition, you can speak back to them for extra immersion.
