Vagrus - The Riven Realms

Lost Pilgrims Studio have announced the date their post-apocalyptic fantasy RPG Vagrus – The Riven Realms will enter Early Access.

As stated in our second Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition Demo Highlights, the game is a turn-based RPG with branching narratives set in a post-apocalyptic fantasy world. Players lead a caravan of workers and mercenaries, manage their resources, and take on contracts and shipping to survive another day.

The game will be available for $29.99 USD, with a “launch” discount. There are not currently plans to raise the game’s price on its full launch, “but with all the added content and features, it may happen.”

You can find the Early Access announcement trailer below.

You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.

Vagrus is an award-winning roleplaying game with a narrative focus, open-world exploration, and strong elements of strategy. The player takes the role of a vagrus – a caravan leader who strives to survive in a strange and dangerous dark fantasy world by leading a traveling company on all kinds of ventures.


A vast realm is yours to explore, filled with unique locations, strange factions, and a colorful cast of characters. In order to punish the Empire for its sins, the Elder Gods unleashed their power a thousand years ago that ended up devastating the realms. The continent is now a wasteland, riddled with arcane anomalies, swarming with twisted monsters, and haunted by roaming undead even after long centuries of rebuilding.


A large selection of stories make up the game’s narrative in the form of events and quests. The choices you make in these often affect your companions and the world around you. Pick your background from trader, mercenary, or explorer; work for factions, follow rumors and trading opportunities; acquire wealth, gain fame, and discover hidden knowledge.


Engage in turn-based, tactical combat that involves your companions and a large variety of enemies, both humanoid and monstrous. Use a wide range of character skills as well as your own leadership-related abilities to succeed. Positioning and support skills are of paramount importance in these challenging engagements.


Journeys have to be planned and prepared for carefully, lest they end in disaster. Manage your supplies, morale, and your crew’s vigor effectively to survive. Haul cargo and valuables across the wasteland or take it from others. Your crew of workers, fighters, scouts, and slaves have to be managed well to optimize their effectiveness.


Recruit from a wide variety of companions to have them serve in versatile caravan roles, such as scoutmaster, guard captain, treasure hunter, or beast handler. Each companion comes with unique combat skills, background stories, and personal quest lines that can upgrade them further when you complete them.

Vagrus – The Riven Realms enters Early Access July 22nd on Windows PC, Linux, and Mac (all via GOG, and Steam). The game’s free prologue is available now on GOG, and July 10th on Steam. This is the same demo that was available during the Steam Summer Festival.
