What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We launched with Early Access to allow us to continue improving Wildermyth while allowing the community to be able to jump in and play. We felt the game was already fun, nearly complete, and reasonably polished, but to make Wildermyth the best game it could possibly be, we knew hearing player feedback while the game is still in active development would be incredibly valuable. Now that we are approaching our official launch, we want to thank every single person that has played the game so far -- and hope you continue to enjoy telling your own stories in Wildermyth.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We first launched in Early Access in November 2019, and we are currently on track to launch our full version of Wildermyth in or around June 2021.”

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

“We’ve been hard at work making improvements to game mechanics, polishing the user interface, and expanding the game’s core content. Some players have already seen a few of the major updates over the past few months, but here are some of the big changes from when we launched Early Access to the 1.0 launch:
  • 6 full campaigns
  • Robust generic campaigns and capstone fights
  • Steam achievements
  • Multiplayer support
  • Full controller support
  • Chinese translation
  • Many more events
  • More monsters
  • More weapons
  • More transformations
  • Expanded and improved overland gameplay
  • Greatly improved modding tools
  • Tons of bug fixes, features, and balance tweaks
  • Performance, robustness, and compatibility improvements

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“With our official 1.0 launch looming, Wildermyth is in a “near-final” state. Everything in the "About this" section works right now:
  • Randomly generated heroes with histories, personalities, and appearances
  • Heroes age, develop relationships, can be maimed, may die or retire, and their kids can join
  • Over a dozen transformations for your heroes
  • A handful of pets you can acquire along the way
  • Over 200 weapons, and tons of other equippable items that are visible on your character
  • 5 monster groups, each with 9+ individual monsters
  • 40+ class abilities across the three classes (Warrior, Hunter, Mystic)
  • Rich tactical combat including walling, flanking, stunts, cover, and other mechanics
  • Unique magic based on "Interfusing" with scenery to affect the world
  • Hero abilities, transformations, and relationships all affect combat
  • Procedurally generated combat maps
  • 4 difficulty levels
  • Lots of procedural storytelling content that develops your heroes between fights
  • Four overarching stories ("villains").
  • Strategic overland map and gameplay (scouting, defending, traveling)
  • Mortal Choices when a hero goes to zero hp
  • Legacy System to bring back your favorite heroes in the next game.

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

“To reflect the scope of Wildermyth and the extended time the team has dedicated to its development during Early Access, the game will be priced at $25 for our official launch. Due to Steam requirements, we’ll actually need to make this change one month prior to our official launch. We’re biased but we feel it’s worth every penny!”

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

“We've been very engaged with our community. We've been taking bug reports and suggestions, and several of our largest features (villains, weapons rework) are in direct response to that feedback. Player feedback and communication is extremely important to us! We'll continue to be available here on Steam, on Discord, via in-game bug reporting tools, or on social media to take any and all feedback - both during Early Access and afterwards.”

Reviews

“Your characters age, they grow, and have stories of their own. They can die, too. They fall in love, they have kids, they chase dreams and make terrible decisions... It’s those subplots, and the chaos and chance of battle and your own colliding decisions that will make them people to you, not just a collection of traits and numbers.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“The entire feel of the combat is hugely satisfying and compelling... The papercraft art style is a joy to behold.”
Save or Quit

“Even in it’s early state the game is a lively and instantly likable journey into a new land, with a nicely tactical battle system and a unique magic system that looks to offer a good amount of versatility... it sinks its hooks into the brain fairly quickly and doesn’t want to let go.”

About This Game

Wildermyth is a character-driven, procedurally-generated tactical RPG, designed to help you tell your wildest stories. Like the best tabletop roleplaying experiences, Wildermyth gives you choices and answers your every decision with consequences that drive your characters forward.

Lead a band of heroes as they grow from reluctant farmers into unique, legendary fighters. Combat unexpected threats and strange monsters across interactive battlefields. Unravel mysteries and share pensive moments in an ever-new fantasy setting that blends hard truths and sacrifice with humor and personal storytelling.

Where does your myth lead? Come help us uncover it!


  • Reminiscent of tabletop roleplaying, unique heroes are born in unique settings every game. They age, transform, fall in love, disagree, and make harrowing sacrifices.
  • Each hero brings their own organic history and personality with them, but your choices and combat skills are what decide their paths and outcomes.
  • All heroes die someday… but you get to hold on to your favorites. Reintroduce them in the next adventure, and over many lifetimes the myths you make will form your own legendary pantheon.



    An Imaginative Papercraft World
    The Yondering Lands, where the game is set, is a richly layered world populated with hand-painted 2D characters and scenery. We’ve paid loving attention to breaking molds and exploring new ideas: no orcs, elves, or goblins here—but watch out for the telepathic insect-dragons and the clockwork undead.

    Extreme Character Depth
    Each of your heroes has their own unique generated history, personality, and appearance, and will form relationships with your other heroes. All of these elements change and develop over the course of a playthrough, as characters age, encounter mysteries, and overcome challenges.



    Choices That Matter
    Your hero may choose to trust the enigmatic wolf god, leading to a hair-raising change in their appearance and combat abilities. Or they may pursue a romance with a fellow hero, giving each of them a shared buff and more story opportunities. Encounters and events have permanent, character-defining effects, letting you craft the arc of each character.

    A New Approach to Death
    Did your favorite character get one-shotted by a tentacled horror-bear? Choose to let a hero "fall back" with a maiming that will lead to some transformative new paths in their legend, or let them go out in a blaze of glory to be remembered for generations to come.



    Deep and Creative Tactical Combat
    Combat in Wildermyth emphasizes teamwork and careful positioning, as well as imaginative use of your evolving capabilities and surroundings. Walling and Flanking mechanics provide clear but conflicting incentives, while mystical interfusion lets you remake the battlefield with explosive magic. Multiple difficulty levels mean you can get as intense as you want to.

    Endless Replayability
    Pick and choose from a huge bank of combat abilities as your heroes level up in each playthrough, and decide whether you prefer offensive or defensive tactics, brute strength, stealth, or magically flinging fire from a nearby lamp into your enemies' faces. Procedural generation gives you new heroes, new enemies, new story events, and new maps every time you play.



    A Custom Pantheon of Legends
    You’ll have the freedom to customize hero appearances, names, histories, and more. As time passes, heroes grow old and may retire, or else might fall in combat—and yes, some will survive all the way to the end. You can add your favorite heroes to a roster of legends and call on them again in later playthroughs. Build your own mythologies and share the awe-inspiring might of your heroes with others.
