What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are proud to present the game, its ground-breaking story, and emotional intelligence management to all the fans of sci-fi, war games, and narration focused games. We have finalized all the features of the gameplay and now we are transitioning to create and finalize the content for this first episode. We want the players to be able to participate in creating the story and its all development phases, so we're rolling out in Early Access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are estimating to release the full content in Spring 2023, so about a half a year.”

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

“We are planning to add at least the double the content that's releasing now on Early Access, including more troopers and gear to be chosen in mission loadouts, which will create a ton more gameplay and variations to the gameplay scenes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Our Early Access version is already fully feature complete and includes everything described on About the game section, but the full release will have a ton more content. We want to include our player community to development of the story, and give power to the fans to be able to influence the upcoming features and assets of the full release.”

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

“We plan to gradually increase the price when we release new content, assets, and features. The full released game will have a higher price than the Early Access version.”

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

“We will have polls and surveys, ideation competitions, and lot more player engagement during the Early Access period. We are excited for the opportunity to involve the players to participate in creating the next generation of narration focused games! Participate in chatting on our Steam community forums:”

Early Access Development Roadmap


About This Game

In a future where bodies can be healed in minutes, the wounds technology can't conquer are within the mind.

In Destiny’s Sword you’re the commander of a team of skilled troopers - and the only thing that can get in their way is themselves.

Every recruit has their own story to tell, their own reasons for getting involved. Their experiences while under your command will shape their development and affect their performance. As you get to know your squad on and off the battlefield you will explore the full depth of the human condition. Empathy will be your most powerful tool.

We’ve all played the hero. It’s time to be a leader.


The galaxy rests on a knife’s edge. The Galactic Government struggles to maintain control against the growing strength of the powerful corporate syndicate known as the Consortium.

Neither side is prepared for open conflict, but when unrest in a distant world threatens the flow of Lucidium, the mineral that fuels the galaxy, the two sides find their battleground. This natural paradise is called Cypris.

On Cypris players will lead a squadron of soldiers into battle, navigating the effects of their decisions on their troops’ mental and physical well-being.

What at first looks to be a simple fight between good and evil plays out with twists and turns as players learn that the situation is not as clear-cut as it seems.

Discovery, betrayal, advancement, and camaraderie with their squad will lead players to learn the truth of what is happening on Cypris and who is really pulling the strings, forcing everyone to dance to a tune that will topple the current powers and install a new one…

Infinite Character Diversity
Thanks to the living universe created by our Insight Engine character AI system, Destiny’s Sword is filled with infinite, diverse personalities and unprecedented character depth.

Every character’s unique life history, personality and emotions govern and are dynamically shaped by their relationships and their experiences - including your actions and decisions as their commander. For example, if a character suffered trauma in their past they might need more reassurance and support. If they’ve taken multiple losses on the battlefield and are feeling down about themselves you’ll need to help them build up their confidence before they go back into more difficult missions.

The Insight Engine is built on extensive psychological modeling and in collaboration with consultation from real-life war veterans, it allows us to highlight the long-term costs of combat.

Narrative by New York Times Bestselling Author, M. D. Cooper
The game is built on a series of space opera novels, written exclusively for 2Dogs Games by best-selling author M. D. Cooper. Cooper has penned over 80 books including the Aeon 14 series and Lucidium Run, a prequel to Destiny’s Sword.
