Thylacine Studios have launched the Kickstarter for Siralim Ultimate, a monster-catching RPG mixed with dungeon crawling and it's been quite a hit. Like with their previous games Siralim 1 / 2 / 3 it will be supporting Linux and they've been very clear on that.

Siralim Ultimate is a monster-catching, dungeon-crawling RPG with a ridiculous amount of depth. Summon over 1000 different creatures and battle your way through randomly generated dungeons to acquire resources, new creatures, and loot.

After launching on Kickstarter yesterday with a $10,000 goal it was hit in just about an hour. Showing that 2D pixel-art games continue to be loved by a lot of people. They're now going through stretch-goals, to add new features when extra funding levels are hit, with the first already done.

Features to expect from it:

  • 1000+ creatures to collect
  • Fuse your creatures together - the offspring inherits its parents’ stats, traits, and even the way they look!
  • Randomly generated dungeons spanning 21 tilesets
  • Customize your castle with thousands of different decorations
  • Engage in strategic 6v6 battles
  • Craft Artifacts and Spell Gems for your creatures
  • Choose a specialization for your character and earn perks that change the way your creatures fight in battle. Will you support your creatures with an army of minions as a Necromancer? Perhaps you'd rather keep them safe and healthy with defensive magic as a Cleric. Or maybe you'd prefer to obliterate your foes with enhanced spells as an Evoker. There are 15 different specializations for you to choose from!
  • Insane amount of post-story content that will keep you engaged for thousands of hours - there's not even a level cap!
  • An ever-changing world that is sure to keep the game feeling fresh even for the most devoted of players

Their current release roadmap puts a full release on Steam in "Early 2021" with Early Access in September / October this year.

You can see the Kickstarter campaign here and the Steam page to wishlist/follow.

Since it has already been funded, we've added it to our dedicated Crowdfunding Page.

Really liked Siralim 1, and 2, and 3...
Also liked the card game Trial of the Gods.

I guess the game will land on Linux only several months after Windows, like the previous games, but well, at least they did land. Also, all were fully playable via WINE/Proton.

I bought the first Siralim thinking that it was going to be like Dragon Warrior Monsters but I was kind of disappointed. I don't like how the enemy monsters only move when you do. I thought that was very annoying and pretty much ruined the game for me. I liked the random encounters of the original Dragon Warrior Monster games a lot better.

Are all of the Siralim games like this?

Yes, they're pretty much turn-based roguelikes.

Darn, well i'll probably give it another try anyway. I loved the old dragon warrior monster games and would love to find another game like it. At least I can still play the old ones on my emulators.
