Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

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.”

Build 07 Patch Notes

For convenience's sake, I'm going to start calling them builds instead of 0.X.X- and there have been six builds prior to this one

-Blood Bow
-Blood Hammer
-Blood Knife
-Knife animation when stabbing an enemy
-Knife passive: Slices the enemies when you dash through them
-Spear: Very strong on the tip, very weak on the shaft

-Fixed getting blood orbs when using a normal weapon and holding a blood weapon
-Arrows fired by bows are now affected by gravity after a certain range!
-Arrows that collide with walls stay

Due to some situations, the shield weapon and two spells were unable to be finished before the end of the weekend. I'll try to put them in as soon as possible

Patch 0.1.3 10/21/2018

Hello players! This is going to be the last patch before the 0.2 series rolls around. The 0.1 series has been a great time for me to knock out bugs and problems in Abalyte!

-Discord link is now the never-ending discord link
-Options menu allows for windowed mode and full screen mode
-Attacking keys are now also bounded to left,down, and right keys

-Changes to weapon cooldowns!
-Knife cooldown: 25 - > 15 milliseconds
-Hammer cooldown: 100 -> 50 milliseconds
-Sword cooldown: 75 -> 45 milliseconds
-No bow changes (Sorry bow users!)
-Slingshot cooldown: 75 milliseconds -> 45 milliseconds


0.2 series will focus on weapons and grand artifacts! If you guys have any suggestions or ideas for them, feel free to share them on the Discord server!
