Set sail for Rogue Islands!

Developed by Kiaran Ritchie, lead animator at Bioware and Jane Whittaker, author of the best selling Alien Vs Predator and five times winner of the Programmer Of The Year Award, Rogue Islands is a fast-paced action shooter set in a procedural fantasy world. You control a nimble druid that can levitate and cast powerful magic spells. The action is fast and smooth, and the enemies are numerous and relentless.

Each island is a unique and complex 3d sculpture brimming with monsters, temples, forests, mountains, caves and bosses. Massive cliffs rise from the depths. Insane, twisted passages wind their way through valleys and under mountains. No two islands are ever the same as the game challenge evolves around your play style, offering a truly unique experience tailored to you!

The islands are infested with a demonic horde. Spinefish lurk in the watery depths, skeletons march across the hillsides, vile shaman screech and fly overhead, vicious Hell-bats spit fireballs that erupt and ignite the canopy. Nowhere is safe, especially after dark when Ghastly apparitions descend from the stars and inexorably hunt you down.

Gather resources as you enhance your spell book with a range of powerful spells that gives you the edge as you strive to survive. Use Spark Shot to mine blocks from the earth, or get up close and unleash a massive electric Zap; instantly reducing small foes to a smoking heap. If things get out of control, summon a Swarm of wasps to take the heat or protect yourself with a sentient Bolt that defends you against sneak attacks.

Can you find your way through the archipelago of islands for the final showdown with the Lords Of Torment?

Developed by Kiaran Ritchie of Bioware, in association with Jane Whittaker (5 time programmer of the year award winner, author of Alien Vs Predator for the Atari Jaguar et al) and the incredibly talented Keystone team, Rogue Islands takes procedural landscape games to dizzying new heights.

"Rogue Islands, the new game from the mind behind Goldeneye could be the sleeper hit of 2017" - Jordan King, TrustedReviews.com

"Very detailed randomly generated landscapes, combined with fantastic combat and resource gathering. The gameplay is really well thought out and won't leave you bored. Highly Recommended!" - Steam Curator Coldwild Games

Rogue Islands reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Product received for free Rogue Islands-Review in English The Kinship is obvious: Rogue Islands extracts Minecraft's Dumpling style and injects it into a washer-like Rogue-elite shooter with Survival elements that blended from its procedural Compactness Bolts out an astonishing amount of Charm. The Game experienced its Full Release on Steam on September 12, 2017; We tested the Title for you and found that we would rather not put the Word "Clone" in our Mouths. The mental Child of one-time bioware coder Kiaran Ritchie-Founder of Developer Big Fat Alien-has been taken over and completed by Industry legend Jane Whittaker at Keystone Games. And so much is revealed beforehand: You can tell Rogue Islands that Experts here were in The Lead. As a special Comment, it should be added that Publisher Keystone Games wants to give the Majority of the Revenue to a charitable Purpose. This also includes the Purchase of Rogue Islands a few karma points for the Player. But even one or the other ingame achievement attracts the diligent Collector. Rogue Islands is all about Dwarfs, Islands, demonic Invaders and your Task of turning everything to the Good. For this you sail from island to island with your mobile Base, a clotty Steamship, and close sinister demon Portals. The Choice of Mode before The start determines how many Lives you have Available for the Run And how difficult it is to Make more selfable. For in Rogue Islands the Law of Perma Death prevails: After the last Death, your Storage Level is irrevocably reset and you must start over. That's the Rogue-key aspect of this survival shooter. Armed with your upgradable Wand, you are moving to all sorts of colorful Demons, while using impoverished Resources you must counter hunger and withstand all sorts of harmful Environmental Influences. At the End, the Prince of Darkness is personally waiting for you-hopefully you will be well prepared. If Zelda were a Shooter-the Story Rogue Islands doesn't need much History to provide a very entertaining Gaming Experience. For the Motivation is primarily based on a demanding Degree of difficulty and the unconditional Will to persevere from (conditional) Perma Death. Anyone who still needs a Reason to shoot virtual rattlesnake Rips into Pieces with colorful Flashes of light will be presented with a cute zelda 'esque Story in small Cutscenes and Pictures. Since the Full Release, the accompanying Lyrics have even been set to music with a friendly Voice of English. The Story says that a Network of Trees once connected the Islands until demonic portals put an End to the trusted Insular Unity. Now the Piles of earth are infested With devilish Presences and separated by the loader. The bravest of all Gnomes, the Player, now sets out to Exorcise the Demons with his Magic Wand and reunite the Islands. Funny Clue: Removing infested or weak Plants, the so-called Pickling, is called "to rogue" in English. Read MORE: https://survivethis.news/rogue-islands-test-minecraft-roguelike-survival-shooter/
