What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I have been developing and improving Pocket Rogues for almost six years alone. A huge number of ideas have been brought life in that time, and even more content is in the works. Thus far, game development has focused on depth rather than length; new gameplay techniques were added, and old ones were polished, while the plot additions have waited in the wings. The game will not be considered complete until the final points, such as plot, have become part of its production history.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It is planned to complete all key (plot) content no later than in 12-15 months.”

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

  • First of all, the game will be passed from the beginning to the final titles: new locations will consistently continue the journey of the heroes to the depths of the dungeons and to solving the evil events comprehending the world of the game.
  • It is planned to introduce some multiplayer features in the game (but without the need for a permanent link to the online mode).
  • At least 2 new elite classes, as well as sets of primary and secondary weapons for them will be added.
  • A lot of new used items, generated interactive objects, new manually created locations, as well as additional NPCs and full-fledged plot tasks are planned to be added.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, Pocket Rogues is fully functional game, and it can provide dozens of hours of game playing (thanks largely to generated locations and the abundance of powerleveling of both your own Fortress and individual characters)

There are as follows in the game:
  • 6 classes of characters, each of which has 9 unique skills and his/her own set of primary and secondary weapons;
  • More than 30 upgradeable buildings in the Guild Fortress, which are designed to enhance the power of all of your characters or discover new game playing features;
  • 7 full-fledged locations, each with its own rules of generation, unique creatures and loot;
  • Special generated properties for gears and most enemies;
  • Many additional activities, such as generated daily tasks, achievements, collection of gear recipes, the purchase of pets and mercenaries, as well as special locations, such as the Treasury, which can sometimes be found when moving between floors.

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

“It is planned to gradually increase the price as far as new content and features are added. After the release, the new content will continue to be issued for some time, but the price will remain to be fixed.”

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

“For quite a long period of time, the game has a Russian-speaking and English-speaking groups in social networks, as well as topics on Reddit and 4pda forums. Polls are regularly carried out in the groups, and all news with regard to updates are published there. The community is actively involved in the development by offering their ideas and concepts, as well as reporting on emerging issues for their timely elimination. A development cycle consisting of a major update every 2-3 months and about 3-4 fixes with edits of stability and balance between them has already been well established.”

About This Game

Pocket Rogues brings old school Action-RPG flavor to the Roguelike genre. Here you must fight your way through hordes of monsters, explore unique and randomly generated locations, upgrade your guild fortress, and develop heroes of ever-increasing might if you hope to discover the lost secrets of a mysterious dungeon.

Pocket Rogues contains many different dungeons, each with its own unique loot and monsters. A wide variety of classes and dozens of specializations allow you to take alternative approaches to the game’s numerous boss battles, and each will test your skill in a new way.

“For many centuries, a dark dungeon has called to hapless travelers, whispering secrets and promising priceless treasure. None who enter have ever returned, and rumor says that each met an unspeakable fate at the hands of a true Evil. These gloomy legends, of course, only entice new adventurers to try their luck in the depths, eager for glory, fame, and riches beyond imagination. What are you waiting for? It’s time to become one of them!”
