We are pleased to release a new alpha build of ScourgeBringer!
We have implemented many balance changes to items, shop, World 1, the altars, the skill tree, and the Super Fury (special ability). We’ve implemented, improved and fixed many quality of life features within the game as well.
All of these changes are based on the feedback you’ve given us over at the Discord and we can’t thank you enough for taking the time to write out your thoughts on the game.
We also added Steam rich presence support which is a cool neat feature.
We are now off to work on the next step of our game: early access!
You can see our roadmap here.
Feel free to access the Alpha through our Discord server.
Your feedback on previous alphas have been tremendously valuable, so please keep them coming!
