Door Kickers 2: Task Force North

Niche Gamer is back with another batch of recent Early Access release highlights. As always, even if you don’t like buying titles that are still in Early Access, remember to wishlist any games that catch your attention so you’ll be notified when they get a full release.

Here are five Early Access games that might be worth checking out:


Hammerting
Developer: Warpzone Studios
Publisher: Team17 Digital
Platform: Windows PC
Price: $24.99 (Price will increase)

Hammerting

First up this week is Hammerting, a management game about running a dwarven mining colony in the unexplored mountains of Mara.

Dig deeper into the mountain as you expand your colony and search for precious resources. Craft weapons and armor to sell to your allies to aid them in the war against evil on the earth’s surface. Care for the needs of your dwarven colonists, and defend your colony from the malevolent forces that live inside the mountain.

Hammerting will remain in Early Access for between six months and a year.

 

Dysmantle
Developer: 10tons Ltd
Platform: Windows PC
Price: $19.99 (Price may increase)

Dysmantle

Dysmantle is a survival sandbox RPG set after the apocalypse. Emerge from your shelter and carve out a living in a strange new world populated by dangerous creatures. Scavenge for resources, craft useful items and gear, discover lost technologies, and build fortified outposts as you explore the world and try to find traces of other survivors.

Dysmantle will be in Early Access for between three to six months.

 

Door Kickers 2: Task Force North
Developer: KillHouse Games
Platform: Windows PC
Price: $19.99 (Price will increase)

Door Kickers 2: Task Force North

Door Kickers 2: Task Force North is the sequel to KillHouse Games’ hit tactics game from 2014. Command special operations teams on raids across the Middle East in pauseable real-time tactical combat. Task Force North features some new weapons and gear befitting its setting, including RPGs, light machine guns, night vision goggles, and drones.

Door Kickers 2: Task Force North will be in Early Access for around 12 to 16 months.

 

Due Process
Developer: Giant Enemy Crab
Publisher: Annapurna Interactive
Platform: Windows PC
Price: $24.99 (Price may increase)

Due Process

Due Process is a squad-based, asymmetrical multiplayer shooter with procedurally generated maps.

The game features two teams: one being police enforcers with cutting-edge gear and weapons, and the other being rag-tag bands of outlaws trying to defend their position. Due Process places a heavy emphasis on teamwork and tactics, with pre-round planning modes that give the attackers time to study the layout of their target, while the outlaws set up defensive positions.

Due Process will leave Early Access within eight months.

 

Solasta: Crown of the Magister
Developer: Tactical Adventures
Platform: Windows PC
Price: $34.99 (Price will increase)

Solasta: Crown of the Magister

Finally, we come to Solasta: Crown of the Magister, a turn-based RPG based on the SRD 5.1 Ruleset. Explore the countless ancient ruins that populate the world of Solasta with a band of intrepid adventurers.

The highlights of Solasta‘s combat system are its dynamic environments and verticality as your party climbs deeper into dark caverns and forgotten ruins. Bridges can be collapsed, crumbling columns can be pushed over on enemies, and torches allow your party to fend off monsters that are sensitive to light.

Solasta: Crown of the Magister hopes to get a full release within six months.
