What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We strongly believe in positive influence of community's feedback on game development process.

Communication with the players and their involvement will help us focus on the most important and fun aspects of the game to make the whole experience better and more refined.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Taking into account the amount of remaining work and the future feedback that may affect our schedule we expect to stay in early access from 6 to 12 months.”

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

“We want to polish and expand the existing modes. Add more enemies, weapons, upgrades, new challenges and bosses. Create a wide variety of "Maze" levels and arenas for the "Summoning mode".”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Upon release in Eearly Access:

  • Maze Mode- a rogue-lite mode with the ever-changing layout of the Maze, upgrades and weapons. To have better control over the level generation we design level plans by hand.

  • The Summoning Mode - an endless arena mode that offers quick, adrenaline-infused runs that will challenge your skill and reflexes. It all spiced up with random upgrades and power-ups.

  • Fluid and responsive movement system that gives a high degree of traversal freedom from the get go. Double jumps and dashes that can be later upgraded and infused with special traits.

  • Over 100 upgrades that can drastically change the playstyle

  • Powerful power-ups that may help you win the hardest of the battles

  • 3 arenas in The Summoning Mode.

  • 2 formidable bosses

  • Over 10 types of enemies

  • Combos system

  • 8 unique magic weapons, each with two distinct fire modes


You can try the demo of the Summoning mode right now.”

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

“If the game outgrows all our original plans and ideas the price might be increased in the future.”

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

“We will pay close attention to the community's feedback on the steam forums and in our discord in order to incorporate the most interesting ideas and improvements suggested by the community.

Please, bear in mind that there are certain limits and constraints that can make implementation of some suggestions imposible.”

Demo Updated (ver.0.05a Build 1232)

Hey all,

There are not many changes in this update, but they're very important as they change the flow of the game.

The first and the most important is the re-balance of base and bonus damage. Basically all enemies in the game have a more prominent weakness to certain type of the Mist ( ammo) you use against them. Many of them can be killed in one shot if use the right Mist. At the same time the base damage was nerfed, making some of the weapons less useful in some situations.

Ammo drops are more frequent now and are tied to the type of weapon and the Mist it uses. It doesn't mean much in the context of the demo as it has only 4 weapons. But later, as the number of shooty things grows it will give more freedom in the loadouts. For example you'll be able to equip two or more similar class weapons like shot guns simultaneously.

To make every run more interesting we buffed all the card trophies.

We'll post a bigger update about the progress we've made with the second mode very soon.


Stay tuned!

Progress Update #2

Those of you who've played the demo might have noticed another mode called the MAZE and this is what we've been working on for a while now.


The MAZE is a mega structure that changes every time a mist hunters enters it. The goal is to get to the mysterious power source that holds the MAZE together and destroy it. But it won't be easy. Every time you die you'll be thrown back to the MAZE's doorstep.


Drawing inspiration from games like Hexen, Heretic and Quake, we wanted our levels to have a similar labyrinth-like structure. So, we've started with a toolset that would allow us to create open semi-procedural levels with secrets, key locked doors and monster closets.


This is how it works. We design a number of level chunks, place enemies, pick-ups and secrets in those chunks. Then we create templates, basically make a diagram of how those chunks should be put together. Usually, in other games of this genre this step is giving out to the algorithms, but this approach gives less control over the flow of the level.

There is just a handful of level chunks, so I just put them arbitrary together to show how a most primitive template is being made.

This is how it looks in the editor, when a level is being generated using the template.

And how it looks in the game

This method takes more effort and manual work, but I think the end result is well worth it.


Along with the toolset, we're also working on the MAZE's first world and its boss. Yes, there are going to be bosses.
And this the first one you'll have to face in the MAZE.

The Lord Gizzard - the king of void looters and Feru Mist junkies.

I don't want to give away his attacks, I'll only say that he has more then one phase.


Stay tuned for more news.

About This Game






Mist Hunter - is a blistering fast, rogue-lite action shooter inspired by Hexen and Heretic. Fluid movement, strange magic weapons, less procedural more hand-crafted.

A young, reckless Mist Hunter strives to become the greatest hunter in the galaxy. He travels between worlds on the orders of The Iron Council to fight the Mist-corrupted creatures and followers of The Immortal Warlock R'axa.









After a devastating battle The Immortal Warlock R’axa has finally been defeated. The survived Mist Hunters have managed to imprison the weakened Warlock in a pocket dimension and stop his deadly crusade.

However, the Warlock’s legacy lives on. Scattered throughout the galaxy, HIS most faithful adepts relentlessly seek ways of bringing their Master back into our world.
