Rogue Spirit, an anime-inspired rogue-lite action game published by 505 Games and developed by Kids With Sticks, a small team of veterans who have worked on a variety of titles, including The Witcher 2, Dying Light, and Hellraid: The Escape, debuts today on Steam in Early Access. The title currently includes six biomes and five procedurally generated levels.
Rogue Spirit is available in Early Access
After thousands of years of relative peace in the Midra Kingdom, the armies of Chaos have broken down the barrier between reality and the spirit world. The Demon King adds new members to his ranks every day, possessing anyone who crosses his path. In a final effort, the monks of the Forgotten Monastery summon the spirit of the Hero who sealed the Demon King last time, the Prince of Midra from generations ago.
In Rogue Spirit, therefore, our task will be to dethrone the Demon King through an intelligent use of the newly found abilities of the Prince’s spirit. Sneak up on enemies in his stealth ghost form, then steal their bodies and use them in battle. Master the weapons, skills and play styles of ten different enemies to adapt to an ever-changing world. Strategically swap bodies on the fly to regain health and stay in the battle, all in an attempt to end the presence of evil that corrupts the earth.
Rogue Spirit Early Access introduces the first six procedurally generated levels within five different biomes, all rendered in stunning 3D art inspired by Studio Ghibli movies like Princess Mononoke and Nausicaä. Explore forests, swamps, villages and more. Discover various secrets and challenge bosses designed to test the prince’s body swapping skills.
It will be possible to unlock permanent upgrades between runs and upgrade dozens of skills and essences that make each game a completely different experience. Rogue Spirit is available now in Early Access on Steam for the price of €19.99 with an additional 10% discount for a limited time, and will be fully launched in 2022.
