Evertried tactical roguelite game gets a day-one launch for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Thanks to the efforts of developer Lunic Games and Danilo Domingues. Which is available now Steam, GOG, and Humble Store.

Evertried is a tactical roguelite where the player ascends through floors of a mysterious tower. Doing so by defeating all enemies in turn-based combat. Each floor presents a unique challenge to be dealt with wits. As well as strategy and clever positioning. In Evertried the player’s actions dictate when enemy units move. In other words, everything moves after you. This makes the game play out as fast as players want. Well, despite still having a turn-based action combat system. Players must also make clever use of attacks, movement, Skills, Dash, Focus, Modifiers and Hazards to clear. Which is true for each floor of enemies and proceed higher in The Tower.

Evertried – Official Launch Trailer (Linux, Mac, Windows PC)

The Tower in Evertried has 50 floors, grouped in 5 Areas. Since each Area has a different visual theme and introduces new types of enemies. The higher the player gets in the Tower, the more complex Floors they will have to clear. Once the player climbs to the 5th floor, they will enter a Store Floor. Where they will also be able to spend Shards acquired from fallen enemies. Doing so in exchange for recovering health, new skills, and modifiers. After the first Store, a new Store will appear every 10 Floors. So the player must plan effectively and take advantage of the healing option. All due to increase their chance of getting to the top.

Every 10 Floors, the player will face a Floor Guardian. This is a boss battle to prove themself before they can proceed to the next area. Players have 3 points of health represented by the Warrior’s mask. Upon losing all of them the Evertried Warrior will dissipate. While appearing at the First Floor to start ascending again. You will also lose the previously acquired powers. It is possible to recover health in a few different ways. The most common being by spending Shards in Store Floors.

Fighting the good fight

In Evertried, alternating between moving, attacking, using the Dash, and Skills is the key to success. As players are the one that decide the pacing of Evertried. The combat can get quite heated…and risky! So there is good reason to play faster, as hitting or defeating enemies can increase the player’s Focus Level. This also shapes the amount Shards the player will receive for defeating enemies. And can even unlock special powers called Modifiers. The Focus Level will be constantly going down when the player is idle or just moving. So there is motivation to keep hitting enemies with attacks or abilities. All due to reset the gauge before it reaches 0. Luring enemies to traps and getting by hazards will also affect the gauge, adding to the strategy.

Moving strategically and attacking is the most important aspect when trying to clear the tower. But sometimes it’s better to just close the gap with a Dash. This is a Evertried mechanic that allows the player to move twice the distance while ignoring collision. Making it great to transverse an obstacle or acquire a better position. Players can also use Skills and Modifiers with abilities and passive effects that can be equipped. All to give them an edge in battle. Skills improve in level through a mastery system and players can acquire more as they proceed in the Tower.

Evertried tactical roguelite game launches on Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Priced at $19.99 USD. Which is available now on Steam, GOG, and Humble Store.
