Beamdog has announced MythForce, a new original first-person fantasy roguelite game for PC.
MythForce is being released in early access for Windows PC exclusively via the Epic Games Store on April 20th. The starting build of the game will include four playable heroes in its first “episode”, titled “Bastion of the Beastlord.” Further episodes and content will be added to the game during its early access run.
“I’m beyond excited to finally show off our team’s original work,” said Trent Oster, Beamdog CEO. “MythForce is pure, unadulterated fun— right out of the Saturday mornings of my childhood. With a simple yet satisfying game loop, it’s a big departure from the RPG classics we’re known for, but the Beamdog DNA is evident if you know where to look.”
Here’s the game’s intro and some gameplay:
Here’s a rundown on the game:
Saturday Mornings Are Back!
Inspired by beloved 80s cartoons, MythForce unites swords & sorcery with gripping 1st-person combat in a roguelite adventure fit for Saturday mornings. Brave the dungeon alone or join forces with friends to take on an ever-changing Castle of Evil!
Become a cartoon hero in a bodacious 80s fantasy world. Scratch that nostalgic itch with wholesome fun that’s easy to pick up and play (but tough to master).
In true rogue-lite fashion, each time you’re defeated, you’ll have to start over at the beginning— but every playthrough makes you a little stronger.
Level up as you explore the dungeon, uncovering magical artifacts and upgrades to make you say “I HAVE THE POWER!”
These courageous champions are all that stand between Eldryth and the tyranny of the vampire lord, Deadalus. Will our heroes prevail against the many malevolent minions, tricks, and traps in his ever-changing dungeon?
