What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're at the point where we want to drop a lot of content (new levels, enemies, bosses) into the game in a relatively short amount of time. Since we're just two people, now's the time for us to get as much feedback as possible to help guide that content towards something that's fun an approachable.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to spend no more than three months in Early Access.”

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

“The main additions to the final game will be new levels and bosses. Beyond that, we'd like to add a number of new powerups and enemies to spice things up! We know the music can get monotonous with just one track, so we'll investigate how viable it is to license some more tracks that fit the tone of the game.

The Early Access build just has the survival mode present, so we want fill that out with some of the back story of McRogue - we're just not sure how we want to present that just yet.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is playable, but with just two levels, and six unique enemy types. There are 17 multi-stage powerups that can be found throughout the levels.”

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

“It's possible we will raise the price when McRogue leaves early access, depending on how we feel about the value it provides to our players.”

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

“We would love to get as much feedback as possible from the community in order to shape the final game. Since we're a small, independent studio, we can be very open about the way we approach the development of McRogue. Interact with us via the Steam Community, Twitter, or just email us. We'd like to look into keeping a public roadmap for the game available on Trello so that you can stay informed and give us an idea of where you think we should be spending our time.”

About This Game

It’s time to rage against the machines…

An army of marauding robots travels the universe leaving every world they conquer desolate, polluted and drained of its resources. Only one person stands in their way: McRogue.

Once a prisoner of the robots and permanently disfigured from their grotesque experiments, McRogue used their own technology against them to escape. He’s now ready to turn the tables and use the giant robotic fists fused onto his arms to take revenge and save his planet.

He’s angry… He’s ready for some payback… Are you?

McRogue is a combat exploration game from Snare Games inspired by some of the amazing 2D roguelikes available on Steam. We wanted to mix roguelike elements with approachable melee combat and exploration in a 3D world.
