Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness is leaving Steam Early Access
This dark old-school RPG created by a small indie team draws its inspiration from classics like Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale.
GrapeOcean Technologies and V Publishing announced today that Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness, their successful Kickstarter project, will be released on PC via Steam and GOG next month. Since August 2021, Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness has enjoyed a highly successful Early Access phase, with over 20 significant updates.
The game enables players to explore a unique and wide fantasy world, where they may choose from five distinct races and 13 different classes to create their own heroes. Players will have to recruit individuals with distinct personalities and traverse a nation plagued by civil war and a strange curse, thanks to a unique greed system that affects those around them.
A successful Early Access phase
The game offers hard real-time tactical combat with pause, over 300,000 lines of dialogue, complex narrative, and memorable characters with influences from classics in the genre. Thanks to user feedback, the development team has taken full advantage of the game’s time in Early Access to enhance several areas.
There are new quest chapters, a totally reworked tutorial, and new zones, as well as major improvements in loading times. Support for Linux and Mac has also been added, as well as a complete rebalancing for launchers, enhanced boss dynamics, and considerable changes to combat and damage scaling.
On March 17, Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness launches for $24.99 on PC via Steam and GOG.
