Arakion is a group based dungeon crawler RPG game will finally release for Linux, Mac and Windows. Okay, so this is not a full release, but Early Access.
So we reached out to the developers, “Arakion will be launching in 2 or 3 weeks.” Which does not have an official release date, but it’s coming for sure.
Also, for those who do not know. Arakion actually released a Kickstarter back in 2012. Since then we have been keeping in contact. But that’s six years ago. That’s quite a while for dungeon crawler development. But check out the trailer below.
Arakion gameplay pays homage the classics. While adding its own style with fresh mechanics. Lead a band of three heroes through a broken land, ripped apart by unknown forces. Explore a beautiful handcrafted world filled with crumbling dungeons, dense forests, ancient temples and hidden secrets. All while attempting to build a safe-haven from the chaos.
Early Access Release:
“Early access allows two important features. First, and most important, it gives me an opportunity to improve and refine Arakion through your feedback! Second, early access allows an expanded time to release additional chapters and content, in addition, this allows you all to have feedback on every new chunk of content released!”
