After being in Beta since January, it's good to see them push it out for everyone. The developer sent us over keys quite some time ago for this one and I did manage to do some early testing. It's actually really quite fun, graphically gorgeous too!


  • Classic turn-based combat inspired by the console RPG greats, with a unique overcharge mana system and incredible Battle Bursts.
  • Beautiful, randomly-generated dungeons loaded with traps, puzzles, secrets and loot.
  • Explore an overworld peppered with hidden dungeons, rare bosses and randomly appearing friends and foes. 
  • Action oriented, randomly-generated dungeons loaded with traps, puzzles and secrets. Use each hero's unique dungeon skills to survive
  • Build your adventuring party by choosing three of six available heroes from the classic Battle Chasers comic series, each with unique abilities, perks, items and dungeon skills
  • Dive into the deep crafting system, using the unique ingredient-overloading system to create epic items!

You can grab it from Humble Store or from Steam directly. I've been told the Linux build is heading to GOG too, no ETA on that just yet.

On Steam at £9.99 this weekend so I've picked it up. Played about 3 hours so far and am very impressed at what is probably my first 'RPG' of this genre. Graphics are gorgeous and the mechanics seem easy to understand at the moment.

One strange thing is that I was originally intending to play with my Logitech F710 but could not successfully redefine the left stick and D-pad via Steam. For some reason left-stick up still produced the D-pad up action.

Still, it seems easier to play with keyboard and mouse anyway :-)
