What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Instead of dropping a finished game at your feet and expecting you to take it or leave it, we believe in building our games organically with you. By that, we mean we want to come up with the master concept and early iterations of the game, and we also want you to be a part of our decision making process as we introduce more content and features to the game. After all, we are building a game for you, so we think you should be involved. Early Access will allow us to achieve this collaborative effort.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“While we aim to complete the full base game experience within the next 12 months, we will make it a point to only ensure that we leave Early Access after delivering a fully realized product that is nothing short of the vision we have for the game.”

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

“In this version, we have the first Act unlocked, 6 heroes, 500 passive and active skill cards and 200 unique items to play with.

We aim to have four fully fleshed out Acts that will be released incrementally as we develop the game, with each Act bringing fresh environments, more unique cards and items, deadly new enemies, features and more.

We plan to add between 10-16 more heroes into the roster, with each hero having their own skill paths and cards.

Outside of the campaign, we also aim to add a PVP mode, an Endless mode and leaderboards in the future.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“This is a early iteration of the game. You will be able to play the following :

  • One complete Act, with randomly generated node-based maps and dungeons to explore. Full game will have four Acts.
  • 6 playable heroes. Full game will have 10-16 more.
  • Access to over a 500 passive and active skill cards. Full game will have thousands more.
  • An extensive skill grid system that lets you customize how your heroes mature.
  • Over 200 items for you to discover, equip and enchant. Full game will have a lot more, including legendary relics and cursed items that bless and curse you at the same time.
  • A crafting system that lets you customize the attributes of your weapons and trinkets.

As we believe in an organic way of building the game, we also welcome input and feedback from you to help shape Gordian Quest into the kind of game you want to play.”

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

“It is highly likely that we will be increasing the price of the game during and after Early Access to justify the increasing amount of work and resources invested into the game. We sincerely hope that you will consider supporting us at this stage to lock in on the EA discounted price and build Gordian Quest together with us by providing feedback and ideas.”

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

“We love engaging our fans. It's been a tradition for us to consult and discuss ideas with them since we began the journey as game developers years ago. We believe in building games that you want to play, hence your opinions matter to us. While we are responsible for coming up with the core concepts and master plan for the game, you can play a vital role in bringing about changes and new elements.

A sinister curse corrupts the land. Darkness reigns. Monsters roam. Scoundrels loot. Cowards flee. Heroes emerge.

Lead heroes on an adventure to save what’s left of this fallen world and destroy the root of evil abound. Will you fall at the claws of your enemies or the consequences of your poor decisions? Your Gordian Quest is about to begin.

Gordian Quest is an epic RPG inspired by old-school classics like Ultima and Wizardry, using modern gaming concepts like deckbuilding and turn-based strategic combat. You will form parties of heroes whom you will have to lead and manage on grueling missions. Help them forge bonds and discover new skills among them. Be fearless and unwavering as you work to unravel the curses laid upon the lands and defeat the ultimate evil at the heart of it all.

***A list of Early Access features include***


  • One Act - The Early Access version features one Act, providing 5-6 hours of playtime per playthrough.
  • Six heroes - At the moment, players can choose from six different heroes each with their own unique class, skills, and playstyle to form a party of three and bring to adventure. At launch, there is a swordhand, a cleric, a ranger, a scoundrel, a druid and a spellbinder.
  • Hundreds of skills - The heroes have a combined total of close to 500 passive and active skills that can be deployed during turn-based battles, allowing players to discover and formulate their favorite combos.
  • Train and equip heroes - Heroes can be upgraded, trained and equipped with a large selection of weapons, armor and enchanted trinkets to enhance their abilities.
  • High replayability - Procedurally generated maps and dungeons and randomized hero skills make each playthrough different from the last.
  • Various difficulty levels - Take on hardcore mode for a teeth-gritting permadeath experience, or play more casually where death is only a setback.
  • Loot galore - Gather items and relics throughout your journey to boost your heroes’ abilities. In the future, you will also encounter mysterious items that can bless your heroes but also cripple them with a curse at the same time.
  • Carryover rewards and progression system - Get rewarded the more you play. Progressing in Acts with each hero lets them start off with a bit more resources, items, or even granting the ability to modify their starting decks.

***Additional features and content planned for the full version***


  • Three more Acts - The completed game will feature four fully fleshed out Acts to explore - each with new heroes, skills, quests, relics, items and NPCs to discover. Each Act will introduce new gameplay mechanics that expand on and enrich the base game experience.
  • More heroes - Encounter more heroes from all over the realm and form new party combos and relationships. We are anticipating adding at least 10-16 more heroes.
  • Relationship system - Future development will introduce a unique system where bonds of friendship, rivalry, mentorship or even love among the heroes in the party can be uncovered to unlock secret combo abilities.
  • Shape the course of your adventure - Align yourself with different factions, embark on side quests and eventually shape the course of your adventure with critical decisions.
  • Endless mode - This special mode makes the game a perpetual adventure and allows you to keep on questing, slaying more monsters and collecting more heroes, skills, relics and weapons.
  • PVP mode - Engage in skirmish fights with other players using your preferred mix of heroes and skills.
