Quite different from stolen valor
Burst2Flame are pleased to announce the release of a new update today that adds an extensive fast-paced Roguelike Mode to Stolen Realm, their innovative, simultaneous turn-based tactical RPG. Praised by the likes of Shroud and Sacriel for the flexibility of its class customization and a design that avoids RPG bloat, Stolen Realm is currently in Early Access and due to release on PC, Switch in 2023.
Stolen Realm’s new Roguelike mode is a fast paced version of the game where you can mix and match builds that are simply not possible in the traditional campaign. After every battle, you gain a level, choose a random skill and a random item from a set of options. Enemies, Bosses and Events are randomized too, making every run unique. Permadeath is the only option, but even if you fail, each run will help towards permanently unlocking new characters and passive skills for your future runs. Harder difficulties await those who desire greater glory. Can you make it through the roguelike gauntlet and conquer the final dragon?
The new update also adds a battle drops system where powerups that include damage bonuses, cooldown reductions and more, will spawn during battle. The update introduces a new public lobby system that allows you to join other people’s games without being their friend on Steam and adds full controller support to the game.
Stolen Realm takes the deep tactical systems of RPGs like Divinity: Original Sin and gives it a unique twist. Simultaneous turns allows all members of the player and enemy team to take their actions at once, creating the kinds of fast-paced encounters you’d typically find in action RPGs, without sacrificing the strategic richness that turn-based RPG fans love.
Stolen Realm features a highly customizable class system that allows you to create traditional RPG classes or break the mold to forge a unique champion of your own. Make a spell-slinging assassin, a priest born of frost, or a shadow-infused knight as you draw from a pool of over 300 possible skills. With over 700 items to loot, each fully customizable with modifiers, there’s even more opportunity to change the way you play: wield Abbadon the Soul Crusher, a mythic mace that raises slain enemies as skeletal warriors to fight for you, or unsheathe the Bloodletter, a cursed sword that grants additional power at the cost of your lifeblood.
