Ragnorium launches into Steam Early Access

Developer Vitali Kirpu (Pixel Piracy) and publisher Devolver Digital have released Ragnorium, a challenging ‘planet recolonization simulator’ spanning eons of time into Steam Early Access.

Ragnorium tasks players with leading a small group of cloned colonists on their pioneering journey into the harsh outer reaches of space, building a self-sustaining society while attempting to survive an oncoming Holy Crusade.

The Steam Early Access launch introduces players to the base game loop of creating cloned colonists, preparing the dropships with cargo, and building out a base-level colony with a wide variety of materials and equipment from the first era of technology. Over time, new eras of technology will be added bringing new materials and equipment into the fold.

Ragnorium had been quietly available in ‘Earliest Access’ on Steam and only accessible through a direct link and not searchable on Steam. This two month run in a private release window allowed a few thousand players to test and provide feedback for updates to visuals, sound design, UI, and overall presentation before today’s debut to the wider Steam audience.

The launch into Steam Early Access marks the beginning of a content roadmap that will include more colonist types, planet maps, items, resources, characters and boss encounters. Developer Vitali Kirpu’s iterative design process lets Ragnorium benefit from rapid feedback and guidance from the community about the overall direction of the game and its mechanics - something that helped produce significant changes in the private Earliest Access phase.

Moon Kid & Devolver Digital launch eye-popping adventure Witcheye on Switch & PC!

After a smarmy knight and wizard steal her spell ingredients, a mild-mannered witch who transforms into a flying eyeball of vengeance sets off on a treacherous journey in Witcheye, the old-school platform adventure from the team behind viral hit The Great Gastsby for NES, now available on Nintendo Switch and PC!

Released last summer on Apple Arcade, Witcheye uses a fantastically innovative touch & motion control system that gives players unparalleled control over the hero's...eyeball...on her colourful adventure. Now with Joycon integration, players can bounce off of enemies and dodge hazards in six vibrant worlds using a variety of control options.

You'll guide the witch through 50+ levels, each containing something completely unique: tricky new enemies, mysterious new environments, and puzzling new secrets. These elements are brought to life with colourful, clean pixel art and a lively, head-bobbing original soundtrack.

Designer Peter Malamud Smith was the co-creator (with Charlie Hoey) of the viral hit The Great Gatsby For NES, and creator of the well-received mobile action puzzlers Satellina and Satellina Zero.

Our actions against scammers and an apology

Devolver Digital recently took action against scammers, refunding and revoking a series of Steam keys that were purchased via fallguys.com at a great discount by resellers and others who exploited regional prices in Argentina.

We made a mistake which resulted in the cancellation of legitimate keys purchased by our community and we apologize unreservedly for our unfortunate error.

Our team also recently adjusted the price in Argentina independent of this issue as the price Fall Guys launched at within the region was incorrect, leaving those who had their game revoked unable to re-purchase at its original price.

Those who have been affected may recover their copy of the game by sending an email to [email protected] with their details and email address used in the purchase.

Thank you for your support and apologies for the inconvenience. We promise to do better moving forward and we will take care of all of the community that was affected. ❤️

Cometimos un error que resultó en la cancelación de claves legítimas compradas por nuestra comunidad. Asi que, nos disculpamos sin reservas por nuestro error.

Nuestro equipo también ajustó recientemente el precio en Argentina independientemente de este problema, ya que el precio bajo el cual Fall Guys lanzó dentro de la región era incorrecto, lo que dejó a aquellos a los que se les reembolso el juego sin poder volver a comprar por el precio original.

Los afectados pueden recuperar su copia enviando un correo electrónico a [email protected] con sus datos y la dirección de correo electrónico utilizada en la compra.

Gladiatorial VR Sim 'GORN' Leaves the Shackles of PC for PlayStation VR

- Blood, Dirt, and Nipples in Glorious VR -

Independent developer Free Lives (Broforce, Genital Jousting) and virtual game publisher Devolver Digital (also Broforce, Genital Jousting) are thrilled to celebrate the launch of VR sensation GORN for PlayStation VR!

GORN is a ludicrously violent VR gladiator simulator featuring a unique, fully physics driven combat engine where combatants creatively execute their most violent colosseum fantasies in virtual reality. The acclaimed VR game entered Early Access in 2017 to high praise and huge success despite players' propensity to smash screens and tear down light fixtures in the heat of battle. One player even dislocated their knee cap. Damage to personal property notwithstanding, GORN went on to become one of the top ten VR games in sales and user reviews on Steam!

Free Lives spent over two years adding everything from new weapons and opponents to a custom language within the GORN universe. That last one is a joke that frankly just got out of hand until they had a full language and a five-track hip-hop EP in said language. And now it’s on PlayStation VR!

“What we do in VR echoes in eternity,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.

For more information on GORN visit gornvr.com and follow @Free_Lives on Twitter. Also, buy GORN because if you don’t what was the point of all this work?

Multiplayer Dungeon Crawler Blightbound Will Vanquish Evil in 2020

- Eldritch Monsters Await Heroic Trios in Action-Packed Online Co-Op -

Fearless developer Ronimo Games (Awesomenauts) and their trusty sidekicks Devolver Digital (Fall Guys, GRIS) have emerged from the mist to announce Blightbound, a dark and stylish multiplayer dungeon crawler that will battle its way onto Steam Early Access later this year blightbound.com.

The world lies in peril. Decades ago, a band of legendary warriors slayed the dreaded Shadow Titan after a long and ferocious struggle, but their celebration was short-lived. The Shadow Titan’s true intentions revealed themselves when from his broken husk flowed the Blight; a corrupting fog that alters any living creature exposed to its evil.

Blightbound is an online & local multiplayer dungeon crawler that tasks three heroes to venture down from their mountain refuge to face the abominations of the Blight - a mysterious and corrupting fog that enshrouds the land.

Explore handcrafted dungeons, fight a terrifying cadre of mystical and monstrous enemies, grab valuable loot, and recover fallen heroes to expand your roster of available warriors. Each player will fulfill a specific role on the team - warrior, assassin, or mage - to overcome colossal bosses and solve clever puzzles.

Can you collect and complete all the challenges, and conquer the Blight once and for all?


Features

  • Blightbound is an ever-expanding game with new dungeons to explore, new heroes to recover and use, and new loot to retrieve with planned free updates for the community.
  • Collect over 20 unique heroes, each with their own skill set, passive abilities, and fully narrated story to complete.
  • Hundreds of unique items to loot and craft to improve each hero and alter their repertoire of attacks and abilities.
  • Build out your refuge atop the mountain by recruiting new artisans to craft more items, fulfilling bounties, and training your heroes.
  • Battle through three distinct lands, each with several dungeons to conquer, including the eerie Gravemark, the oppressive Underhold, and precarious Blood Ridge.
  • Distinct class roles that reward team play and powerful ultimate abilities that charge from fulfilling your role. Block damage as a warrior, interrupt enemies as an assassin or heal your allies as a mage.
  • A stunning mix of hand-painted characters and real time 3D models and lighting effects.

Blightbound developer Robin Meijer is the latest guest on The Devolver Digital Forkcast, the soon to be award-winning podcast from your third favourite indie game publisher. Visit forkcast.devolverdigital.com or subscribe via Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher or wherever else you get podcasts.

The game is bound for Steam Early Access this summer.
