Soulblight roguelike coming soon to Kickstarter

soulblight roguelike coming soon to kickstarter linux mac windows games steam

Soulblight is a top­down roguelike coming to Kickstarter crowdfunding very soon. Since the games built around the literal meaning of RPG. While also coming to Linux, Mac and Windows. It is only fitting to share the news, since the games been Greenlit on Steam.
So instead of XP grinding, gameplay introduces a unique Taint System (nice naming convention). While travelling through the shattered reality of the Sanctuary. Players will receive personality traits based on your choices. So these will then be the main source of your strength. To harness them, you will have to act accordingly. While becoming an alcoholic means that you will be rewarded for getting drunk. Yet from that point being sober might prove to be unbearable.

On the face of this wretched world there is a gaping wound. The Sanctuary, once glorious, now forsaken, hides secrets of forgotten machinery. Magical matter is born there when space­time ripples and loses its meaning. Yet…at the heart of it all is an anomaly. A tree shrouded in a mystical liquid. Luring those brave enough with its promises of greatness. Do you dare seek its power? Do you wish to drink from the Soulblight?

Soulblight Features:

  • A unique Taint System designed to encourage role playing.
  • Tons of weapons, armor, and utility items.
  • Dynamic and tactical combat build around stamina management and distance control.
  • Optional stealth approach that complements fighting.
  • Randomly generated, visually breathtaking levels.
  • High difficulty level emphasized by permadeath mechanics.
  • Gameplay­-driven narrative.

The Idea Behind Soulblight:
So most RPGs are in a strange place right now. Pretty much every game with a levelling mechanic calls itself an RPG. We all play those games travelling through awesome worlds and maxing out our stats. While grinding XP at every opportunity. But over the years this has become more mundane than enchanting. Hence Soulblight, which is already listed on Steam, due to release in January 2018.

So the Kickstarter campaign for Soulblight is coming soon. While Linux, Mac and Windows are not listed in the crowdfunding page. There is plenty of information further explain the games unique take on the genre.

PlayWay will be launching Soulblight on Kickstarter August 17th.

Including strong monster raising and multiplayer features. So #ReLegend is the co-op adventure developers Magnus #Games have been craving. Along long while before they began development almost two years ago.

So the story begins with the player washed ashore on the island of Vokka. Since you have been a chance at a brand new life. The soil is fertile, the land is teeming with wildlife. While the locals seem friendly enough.

The first few days in Re:Legend might consist of planting a few crops to live on. While trading part of that harvest with the villagers. To eventually gain enough resources to build a comfortable home. While going about your business, discover what makes Vokka Island unique. Hence the presence of numerous monster-like creatures called Magnus. By taming and befriending wild Magnus like the adorable Momochi and Draconewt. This new world will truly open up to you. From helping you in a wealth of activities to carrying you across the island. Since the loyal Magnus are the key to a prosperous life. Similar to Stardew Valley yet still more RPG based exploration.

Hi Todd,

We’re currently using Unity to develop the game. And we believe porting the game to Linux will not be an issue. So it will probably be supported. 🙂

Re:Legend was unveiled in April through the Square Enix Collective. Since then it became one of the best supported projects. While obtaining the highest ratio of “Yes” replies, finishing at 99%.
