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 early 2021.”

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

“The game currently has 3 of the planned 4 chapters playable. Moving forward we'll be releasing the final chapter which will add multiple hours of gameplay with new enemies, weapons, spells, collectibles, puzzles, bosses and more. We'll also be introducing an arena mode where players can challenge themselves against the various enemies in the game while becoming more skilled in combat as they go. These updates will be released as free content patches so everyone who owns the game will be able to experience them at no additional cost. Additional polish is always being added, as well.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently players have access to approximately 12 hours of content between the first three chapters of the game. This includes a tutorial, three zones and three dungeons. Melee combat, archery and magic are all in, as are upgrades in the form of a perk tree, new weapons (found, crafted or purchased) 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'll very likely be raising the price once we exit early access. The final price is yet to be determined.”

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.”

“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

Inspired by classics of the genre, Vengeful Rites is an adventure RPG designed exclusively for Virtual Reality. The world is being overrun by goblins and monsters and it falls to you to defend the realm of men against their invasion. You've got everything you need to accomplish your task. Your journey awaits...

Main Features Include:

A story of vengeance!
The fallen Serafin, Dragore, returns to slay Abardon, his former brother-in-arms and your master. It falls to you to seek him out and exact your revenge lest the world fall prey to Dragore's pending invasion!

Master your swordsmanship!
Melee enemies are quick to react and to catch you off guard. Master the blade and overcome deadly foes by parrying and cutting them down. No waggling to win here!

Powerful and intuitive magic!
You're not limited to simple swords and've got the power of Serafin magic right at your finger tips! Use intuitive gestures to summon shields, throw fireballs, heal yourself, knock back enemies and more!

Specialize in different combat disciplines!
Acquire Elixirs of the Gods to earn perk points that make you more proficient with swords, bows, magic or any combination of the three. Unlock ultimate perks to dual wield, unlock new powerful spells or gain the ability to imbue your arrows with magical properties! Talk about replayability...

Enchant your swords for greater control of the fight!
Meteorites have crashed all around the world since Dragore's return. Find them and gather their shards to sharpen your blades, enchanting them with the ability to ignite, chill, electrify, steal mana or health! Use the shards that best suit your playstyle!

Solve ancient riddles and puzzles!
There are hidden treasures everywhere. Brawn won't get you everything; you'll need brains to remove the obstacles that would bar your path and uncover ancient treasures long forgotten.

Defeat epic bosses!
Dragore's not the only one you have to worry about! His lieutenants and their soldiers promise to make your task as difficult as possible. Learn their weaknesses and take them down on your quest to save the world and bring Dragore to justice!

Craft your way to victory!
Found a hidden recipe? Bring it to a forge and make yourself a new sword! Defeating a boss earned you a shiny new gem? Use it to make a powerful ring with a passive bonus to better customize your playstyle!

Join the conversation!
You'll come across some talkative characters throughout your adventure. Talk back with speech recognition for more immersive NPC interactions!

Vengeful Rites has been improved so much by our close communication with players. If you'd like to share your thoughts and feedback on the game, please do so by joining our official discord and making your voice heard! You might be surprised how helpful your ideas can be!
