In The Arcane Relics™, you are cast into the land of Terradim – a land full of wonder, mystery, & great danger. Assume the role of any type of character you wish in this wacky fantasy-medieval sandbox experience, featuring 4-player split-screen mayhem!

The game features strategic combat where hits can be placed on specific limbs, crippling them, and characters are limited in action via stamina. Armor pieces also slow down the wearer and only protect the limbs that they cover.

The end goal of this project is to make a dynamic fantasy sandbox with hand-crafted environments emphasizing co-op. Of course, the game will be playable in single player as well. The game is currently in a pre-alpha state, very early on, but playable.

I Love this game man,I Just got done playing the demo with a friend and he enjoyed it as well.In its current state its a little wonky and wild but it was quite enjoyable.The whole aspect of sitting down with friends and playing this is glorious.The potential is quite abundant here,It would be even cooler if there were to be mods for it.

Good luck with this wonderful game and to ya'll.

And if you don't mind I'd like to post some suggestions.

More Monsters! - Orcs,Goblins,Trolls?,Dragons?

More Races such as Elves,Dwarves,Orcs

Factions- The Main Kingdom,Possibly the ability to make your own tribe/Kingdom?

The Ability to build a house,Crafting in general

The Armor and weaponry already implemented is glorious,Job Well done.But hows about some warhammers,Halberds,Javelins,Longbows,Shortbows

The town is quite dry,I Know its in early access but eh.The town feels quite dry as of now,Not alot of npcs etc.

The ability to mod the game,I Can barely imagine all that could be made from this game.Like lord of the rings or game of thrones modules.

More Dungeons,The grand arena could use more obstacles within since its quite open,Maybe like deathtraps or ramps!

More Hairstyles,Facial hair.

Thats about it man,I ******* love this game man.The Potential like I said is just tremendous!

We don't mind suggestions. At this point, we plan to keep adding things from our backlog, but we are a small team so time encourages us to prioritize certain tasks/features. Someday, we hope to get many of these done. :) Dragons, for example, will probably be quite a while before getting in, a lower priority. We are working towards having some things moddable, but it's a slow process for us... We're learning as we go. :D

Hopely you keep the splitscreen co-op, do you plan also a PS4 release? If yes with splitscreen co-op as well?

Splitscreen co-op is a core-feature, and will continue to be! :D
We have no plans, as of now, for a PS4 release, but if we do decide to later, we would aim to keep it as a feature.
