Default Black Geyser - Early Access on August 26

June 30th, 2021, 21:00
Black Geyser will become available in Early Access on the 26th of August.

Embrace Greed As CRPG "Black Geyser" Eyes Early Access


Discover how corrupt you are on August 26th, 2021


Oceanside, California, 28 June 2021 - Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness is set in a land plagued by war, pestilence and abductions, where dark gods have brought nothing but venality and greed. Developed by GrapeOcean Technologies and due to be published by V Publishing, it officially enters Early Access on Steam, on August 26th ($19.99 USD).

Inspired by classics such as Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale, Black Geyser features real-time tactical combat with pause, rich storytelling, deep lore and memorable companions, all set in a corrupted fantasy world filled with death and disease.

As a small team, we wanted to create a unique world that had a different tone, but one filled with everything we've come to expect from a CRPG: an epic story, exploration, mystery and plenty of side quests," says David Zakal, Director and Founder of GrapeOcean Technologies.
With over 300,000 words of dialogue and a huge world to explore, Black Geyser invites players to choose their own unique race and class, gather their party, and venture forth into Yerengal to uncover the secrets of their heritage.

The choices you make directly impact the story and its outcome. Whether good or evil, if you veer too far to greed the consequences for you and your party can be severe.
Having increased the size and scope of development since it was successfully backed on Kickstarter in 2018 (receiving more than $100,000) the indie team officially began development in 2015 before turning to crowdfunding.

Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness can be wishlisted on Steam now in preparation for its release into Early Access on August 26th.

Definitely the best looking gameplay footage I've seen of this so far. I'm actually interested now despite how entirely derivative it is.

I think they hit Baldur's gate and Icewind Dale vibe.
Can't wait.

Definitely getting it once it fully releases.
Some of the movement looks a bit clunky, but who cares?
I am already loving the huge bosses and the scenery!

Not planning on buying it but I'm curious how the whole Greed mechanic will work (or not work).

Yeah, if the world and writing turn out well, this certainly looks like a game I'll be picking up.

That looks fairly good. Can't remember whether I backed this or not.
