What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe we need to involve the community in the development of the game, and what better way is there than to put Tainted Fate into your hands.
We've been working on Tainted Fate so long, we're not sure we clearly see the areas of the game we need to improve the most. That's where you come in. Based on player feedback we'll tweak and improve the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Two to six months.”

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

“It will be more polished. We're planning more modes (challenge arenas, new game+, endless mode), more replay value, Steam achievements, less bugs, better performance, better visuals, animations and sounds. The boss fights will be enlarged in scope and have multiple tiers. Especially the final boss fight in which we plan to invest a lot of time. Today's games often have anticlimactic endings and we want to fix that by having an epic boss fight that's practically a whole level for itself.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version has the full story campaign. There are lots of bugs, the AI is not at a level we're satisfied with, we need to do a final performance optimization pass so we can target lower end hardware than in early access.
We need to balance the game for the player to truly have the option to untangle any situation in his way (chaos, stealth, mixed). We also need to tweak the difficulty curve to be fun but still challenging to the player.”

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

“Based on player feedback, we may raise the price for the full release of the game.”

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

“We're not a big publisher who will stay silent after we throw the game into the player's hands. We're a small indie team that's not afraid to reply to your reviews and criticisms and, most importantly, take them into account and improve the game based on them.”

About This Game

BE THE HORROR

Massacre those who wish to orchestrate your destiny. Dismember any living being. Spawn your minions to aid you in your quest for blood.

DEMONIC ABILITIES

Grab enemies and tear their limbs off. Spawn your minions to take the heat off you or spawn critters that blow up on contact. Teleport into enemies for an instant kill. Throw explosive objects into crowds of enemies. Slow down time for extra precision while dismembering enemies or throwing objects. Mix and match abilities for wild combos resulting in a spectacle of blood and flying body parts.

NO HUD


VR games should have a minimal HUD with as little text and as few numbers as possible sticking to your face. That's why Tainted Fate has no HUD at all. The ability you have selected is visible through your hands. The colors fade as you take more damage. Haptic feedback, visual and audio cues help immerse you into the world of Tainted Fate.

EPIC BOSS FIGHTS


Bosses the size of a building? Check. Multiple ways to defeat them? Check. Gain their abilities after the fight? Check. Chop off their heads, jump down their neck, make a stew out of their guts and exit through their poop hole? Check.

PLETHORA OF LOCOMOTION AND GRAPHICS OPTIONS

You are new to VR or get sick easily? Use teleportation. You're a VR veteran and want free walking for smooth locomotion? We got you covered. You don't want to turn around in the real world and want to play sitting in a sofa like our lazy developers? Use the front facing mode. Depending on whether you use a Rift, Vive or Windows MR headset, the game dynamically changes the tutorials and in-game images to correspond to your headset and chosen locomotion system.

Have a beast of a PC and want all the SSAOs and dynamic shadows and blooms so strong your eyes melt from all the glow? Still got you covered. Want to play at a rock solid 90fps on your sensibly built rig or laptop? Turn them graphics down, son.

ENGAGING STORY


Tainted Fate does not take itself too seriously. It's a game in which you are a demon that yells inappropriate one liners at his enemies, but don't be deceived by the shallowness of the protagonist. The story and characters have depth. You are Decarabia. A demon with almost nothing to lose. Even your body has been taken away by the higher-ups. Left with nothing but your hands, you will use them to gain back your powers and get revenge on those who have wronged you on your path of carnage.

NOT YOUR GRANDMA'S INDIE GAME

We're an indie team. We can do things developers who have publishers can't. In Tainted Fate you will experience chopping off people's heads in guillotines, fountains of blood pouring out of dismembered limbs, swearing, offensive dry humor, inappropriate jokes...
