From Press Release:

EDMONTON, Canada. April 20, 2022— Beamdog’s first original title: MythForce which is Inspired by beloved 80s cartoons has launched into early access today as an Epic Games Store exclusive for Windows PCs, priced at $29.99 USD.  MythForce unites colorful swords & sorcery with gripping first-person combat in a roguelite adventure. See the Mythforce gameplay trailer here.

Beamdog recently announced they had entered into an agreement to join the Embracer Group family in an acquisition by publishing heavyweight, Aspyr Media, a wholly owned subsidiary of Embracer’s Saber Interactive operative group.

”Beamdog is a tremendously talented group we’ve admired for a long time. We look forward to seeing them realize their ambition with MythForce while maximizing the long-term potential of an incredible archive of classic games,” said Ted Staloch, Co-Founder of Aspyr. 

The Early Access launch includes four playable heroes for MythForce Episode 1: Bastion of the Beastlord. Wielding legendary weapons and powerful magic, the heroes of MythForce face a series of increasingly difficult challenges as they explore overgrown ruins teeming with cartoon enemies. Players can brave the dungeon alone or join forces with friends in online co-op mode for up to four people.

Heroes level-up as they explore the dungeon, unlocking different perks for each playthrough, as well as special rank upgrades that carry over to new sessions. Procedurally-generated maps with randomized encounters and loot keep each playthrough fresh. In true roguelite fashion, each time players are defeated they have to start over at the beginning, but every playthrough makes them a little stronger.

MythForce is currently available from the Epic Games Store, and Episode 1: Bastion of the Beastlord is playable now. Beamdog will release additional episodes and updates during Early Access, incorporating input from Early Access community members.

“MythForce is a feel-good game that speaks to the kid in us. In Early Access we want to collaborate with players who are excited by our wholesome, 80s vision for MythForce, and build up the best game possible. Community will be key to getting us to 1.0,” said Oster.
