Stoneshard Early Access Release Trailer

Taking nods from classic turn based RPGs of the past. Stoneshard adds challenging twists to the mix. Including a simple, yet unique, health system. So that players have to mend their physical wounds but their mental state too. Likewise, wounds and broken bones you can treat with a plethora of potions and salves. But mental fortitude, or weakness, can result in either rushes of adrenaline. Which can also aid in Stoneshard battle. Or maybe panic attacks at the least opportune times.

While the world of Aldor is full of dangers. Adventuring heroes have complete freedom. So they can evolve and grow their characters with more than 200 unique skills and 400 items. All without class or level restrictions. While building a damage dealing tank or magic wielding mage. Simply anything in between right from the start. Making every single Stoneshard playthrough completely unique. For the truly brave, the game’s Ironman mode adds permadeath. And the constant risk of complete and total defeat.

Stoneshard is available on Steam Early Access. Now with support for both Linux and Windows PC.
