Dodge and weave through enemy fire while claiming kills of your own. Combat is fast with a huge variety of weaponry and ship mods to both outgun and outsmart your opponents
  • Your Ship, Your Character, Your Choice: Fly, paint, and customize 60+ different ships. Outfit your build with 500+ pieces of ship equipment. Level up your character the way you want with a deep skill tree. Unleash your own brand of peace or mayhem on the galaxy in true sandbox fashion
  • Every Star A Story: 40+ different factions to meet, all with their own alliances, goals, cultures, and preferences. Pursue the main quest or discover hidden stories and questionable motives in 45+ unique sidequests

Captivating "Against the Storm" Immerses Players in City - Building Allure

Polish Devs Claim "Best Design" Honor

At Indie Game Award 2024, the captivating city-builder Against the Storm claimed the coveted "Best Design" honor. This roguelite colony simulation, crafted by the Polish development team Eremite Games in collaboration with publisher Hooded Horse, seamlessly blends dark fantasy elements with addictive city-building gameplay. Since its release, the game has not only maintained an overwhelmingly positive reception on the STEAM but has also garnered playful remarks from numerous fans, who jokingly suggest enabling the in-game "playtime warning" feature is a must – a heartwarming reminder that hints at the developers' confidence: Against the Storm is a game that will undoubtedly keep gamers hooked once they start playing!"

Dream Chasers ! Mobile Game Devs Boldly Pursue Indie Ambitions with Against the Storm

During Taipei Game Show 2024, the publisher Hooded Horse made a special appearance to represent the developers in receiving the award. They also shared the fascinating backstory of the team, praising Eremite Games not only for their unwavering commitment to quality during development but also for their dedication to addressing gamer feedback and diligently improving pain points, even proactively investigating negative reviews. Hooded Horse commended them as an exemplary team offering exceptional "after-sales service."

Interestingly, Eremite Games was formed by a group of seasoned mobile game developers who maintained close connections while pursuing their respective careers in the industry. Despite their accomplishments, they harbored a smoldering aspiration to develop an engaging PC game. Determinedly turning their dream into action, in November 2019, team member Michał penned the first line of code for Against the Storm, officially marking Eremite Games' transition into full-time inde game developer. The initial planning phase alone spanned nearly three years, but their meticulous efforts paid off, successfully delivered a game that the developers themselves yearned to play.

Intricate Design Fuels Long-Term Against the Storm Allure

As developers who are also avid players themselves, the Eremite Games team understands that while city-building games are undoubtedly engaging initially, gamers often find themselves drifting away after the first 2-3 hours, mirroring a relationship exiting the honeymoon phase when challenges diminish and growth stagnates. Consequently, during development, they relentlessly pursued a diverse array of gameplay elements, seamlessly blending roguelike features into the experience. Their goal was to sustain an enthralling, honeymoon-esque allure that would captivate players’ long-term interest.

Despite the plethora of existing city-building titles on the market, Eremite Games sought inspiration from their personal encounters with Blizzard Entertainment games and classic hand-drawn Disney animations during their formative years. This inspired them to forge a distinctive dark fantasy art style, replete with vibrant colors, intricately sculpted species, and imaginative objects. To maintain a harmonious balance amidst the complexity, the team strived for the "perfect fusion of familiarity and novelty." Whenever designing a new species, members would first identify a core concept from various proposals and then expand upon the artistic vision, gradually shaping the foundational outlines encompassing culture, specialties, attire, and architecture. They meticulously ensured each element resonated with the overarching world, ultimately crafting the vast and visually captivating realm of Against the Storm.

"The team is truly elated by this experience!" Eremite Games emphasized that the competition featured numerous exceptional contenders, making their triumph with "Against the Storm" – a project that began as a modest side endeavor – all the more remarkable in the face of such fierce rivalry. To see their humble beginnings blossom into a mature, widely beloved masterpiece, even clinching the prestigious "Best Game Design" award, feels utterly surreal.

Looking ahead, the team reveals that during the game's early access period, they maintained a cadence of releasing new content updates every two weeks. However, following the 1.0 release, they plan to moderate the pace slightly, though assuring that Against the Storm will not be abandoned. On the contrary, Eremite Games is actively considering supplementing the continuous free updates with their first paid DLC offering. Tantalizingly, they hint, "This could potentially include brandnew playable species, so players should stay tuned!"

As a skilled thief, Kay’s antics catch the attention of Sliro, the leader of a new, foreboding criminal syndicate Zerek Besh. After Sliro places a bounty on Kay’s head, Kay and Nix are offered their one shot at freedom - pull off one of the greatest heists of all time. Kay and Nix will need to navigate the underworld across the galaxy, building their reputation with legendary criminal organizations including the Pyke Syndicate, the Hutt Cartel, the Ashiga Clan** and Crimson Dawn to earn the support they need to finish the job.

In search of true freedom, the resourceful Kay and Nix will journey through the underworld and across the Outer Rim, taking on jobs from syndicates, facing off against intimidating foes, avoiding oppressive Imperial rule and recruiting a skilled outlaw crew in order to pull off one of the greatest heists the galaxy has ever seen,” shared Julian Gerighty, Creative Director.

Kay and Nix will travel across the galaxy to gain the right resources and crew for the ultimate heist. In their journey, they’ll travel across distinct locations, both iconic and new: Canto Bight, Kijimi, Tatooine, Akiva, and the windswept savannah of Toshara**. Along the way, Kay will explore bustling cities and cantinas, race across sprawling outdoor landscapes on her speeder, and pilot her ship the Trailblazer through the wilds of space. When things go awry, the Trailblazer will also help them chase, evade and attack to gain the upper hand in thrilling dogfights with the Empire and other foes.

Super Fantasy Kingdom bids farewell to MVP original demo

160,000 wishlists later, the roguelite city builder’s original prototype hands in its badge and rides off into the sunset

April 5, 2024 – Hooded Horse and Feryaz Beer today bid farewell to a true hero – the original prototype for roguelite city-building game Super Fantasy Kingdom. It is being retired as the developer shifts focus towards main game development, including a new and improved demo that will debut later this year.

Thrown together as a proof of concept in less than a month, the original demo debuted alongside Super Fantasy Kingdom itself during TactiCon 2023, earning over 85,000 wishlists in the first three months alone. Throughout 2023, the prototype was updated over 100 times with new experimental mechanics such as a faith skill tree, new characters, reworked performance, and more. Super Fantasy Kingdom has earned over 160,000 wishlists to date, all thanks to the prototype that could.

The game is now officially in pre-alpha, with regular playtests and updates that take it in exciting new directions – slowly, the original demo is becoming less representative of the final vision. Players can stay up to date on the game’s development via the official Discord and Twitter accounts.

Super Fantasy Kingdom will be coming to early access on PC via Steam Early Access in 2024.
