What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Early Access is an opportunity for players to get access to the game earlier while allowing me to add content, polish and improve the experience based on player feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Early Access could take around an year depending on how development goes, but most of the planned improvements will be implemented in the first three months.”

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

“I plan the following improvements to RogueVerse Dungeon during Early Access:
  • Full keyboard and controller support
  • Additional Achievements
  • More detailed Statistics
  • Game difficulty option

Depending on the player feedback I may decide to add more game content, additional levels, or new game-modes with separate hi-score leaderboards. I'd love to add new player characters to choose from at the beginning of the game, each with different abilities - for example an axe throwing skill for the fighter class (a barbarian maybe?) was tried and it worked perfectly. More special rare enemies, items, events and places to visit like an additional shop or a blacksmith will be considered as well.

I also plan to contact my awesome music composer Niilo Takalainen from Finland to order more game music - this however has a financial aspect and may not happen in the first months of release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“RogueVerse Dungeon is fully playable with already implemented Leaderboards and Cloud systems. Please refer to the Features list in the About this game section to get an idea of the current state. Because the game is oriented towards high replay-ability and a competitive hi-score leaderboard, the improvements during Early Access will be concentrated around those aspects.
A demo of the game concept was released online in 2016 and the play-through data of hundreds thousands of players was used to crystallize on the core mechanic: the simple but interesting and quite intriguing battle engine. You can try Dungeon Screener demo on my website, check External Links section.”

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

“Price is expected to remain the same, but may increase slightly depending on final game content.”

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

“I am encouraging players to provide me with their detailed feedback. I will activate a Discord Server upon release where we will be able to discuss various aspects of the game directly. Thank you in advance!”

About This Game

RogueVerse Dungeon is a 2D tactical turn-based dungeon crawler, suitable for all ages.
The archetypal RPG elements like unit classes, exploration, monster encounters and looting are widely formalized in order to provide a quick and smooth gameplay. A full playthrough takes around 2 hours for an advanced player. Combats - the core mechanic of the game present a series of small tactical challenges - player needs to take rational decisions when confronting various types of enemies, and use a logical approach in traversing through the five stages of increasing difficulty. The random generated levels and the tight hi-score system promise high replayability, as well as strong competition for the top ranks in the leaderboard. Multiple hi-score entries are allowed per player, with each record providing insightful information and statistics about the playthrough taken.

  • Unique tactical battle system.
  • Tutorial highlighting the important battle mechanics.
  • 5 random generated stages of increasing difficulty and size.
  • 42 different enemies. 24 of them can be summoned to fight on the player side.
  • 64+ cards to open - they work like achievements, but some of the cards can be used in-game as well. For example enemies are summoned by obtaining their card first.
  • 50+ items and collectibles. There is no inventory - best items are equipped automatically.
  • Linear experience/level-up system. Skills and abilities gained on level-up are predefined.
  • Tavern in each stage where player can buy weapons/accessories and save game progress.
  • Extensive scoring system, encouraging the player to master best optimal play-through.
  • Multiple hi-score records per player allowed. Score entries provide detailed statistics.

RogueVerse Kingdom is under attack by evil forces rushing from the Shadows, led by the Dungeon Lord himself. The king of RogueVerse has gathered a party of four heroes to embark on a crucial task. They must descend into the Underground city of Shadows to find and engage the Dungeon Lord in his domain. Lead a Knight, Ranger, Cleric and Wizard into the depths of a tough and crowded network of dark caves, deep chasms and dangerous dungeons, but beware! There are no health potions in this role playing game, however there is plenty of beverages to drink at the tavern. Cheers!
