What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Abalyte is in Early Access- the developer plans to create much more content and add many features to the game: online co-op, shared screen & controller support, PVP...

Players that wish to participate in the development process can pitch in their ideas and support- the craziness or chaos of the game will know no bounds.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“1-2 years”

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

“The full version will include more than 300 weapons to choose from, 150+ spells, and 100+ grand artifacts, each with its own unique purpose. The worlds will be randomly generated as well as item randomization to ensure full replay-ability.

The game will be balanced based on the 4-player experience, but players can challenge themselves and attempt a death-wish single player run if they desire.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of Abalyte has three levels and one boss level. The levels' orders are randomized.
Abalyte also has a selection of six weapons to choose from, allowing the player to wield two of his or her weapons of choice.”

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

“The game will have a price tag after the official launch.”

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

“The community will be able to participate in strawpolls that decide the next major gameplay update.
Patrons will be able to participate in the development of certain items and gameplay mechanics by commenting or voting.”

Looking for team members / helpers!

Hey guys, Purple here yet again.
Now that I've got a lot of the fundamentals and systems laid out, I'm going to start looking to create more content. The content could come by a lot faster with a few team members and helpers, so now I'm looking out for some team members!

Potential Team Member Roles:

-Concept Art Artist
-Level Designer
-Sound Designer

Volunteer work:

-Person who compiles a list of bugs and suggestions

If you're a bored person who has not much to do at home or school, a student who would like something to put on your resume, or a person who would like to develop a game, please contact me on the Abalyte Discord server or email me at purplestudios.abalyte@gmail.com! Payment, if necessary, can be settled and will come when Abalyte becomes a fully fledged game with a price tag.

Build 08 Patch Notes - MAJOR UPDATE

Here it is everyone! The major update that's going to forge a path for even more updates in the future!

- Portals
- Levers
- New room based gameplay system (This is a big change, one sentence doesn't do enough credit for the system)
- Equipping weapons now utilizes the E and Q buttons instead of the menu
- New tutorial room
- New options room
- New save system
- Additional dialogue from the final boss
- New forest theme from Audio Insurgency, a music producing group! Let's hope they'll be with us for a long way!
- You can now find the shopkeeper sitting in his little stall on the right side of the hub. He doesn't sell anything, but he gives some pretty good yet generic advice.

- Removed Main menu
- Fixed monitor flickering white when changing from level to level
- Dash now no longer gives invulnerability frames (unreliably)
- Dash speed boost from 3 to 4.5
- Spawns have a chance to drop a chest (Farming for an optimal setup is now encouraged)

More content coming very soon and fast.
