Independent development studio Predict Edumedia will be releasing Arhaekon, a tactical turn-based roguelike dungeon-crawler game on Steam Early Access in Q2. You are entering a torn world, where an ancient, lost civilization stands witness to the ongoing struggle of two god-like factions: the Arhaekons and the Prospherisors. While the former swore to prevent humanity’s extinction, the latter swore to extinguish it should they attempt to transcend, surpass their condition and upset the balance of the void. The mages, in their quest for power, bring about a cataclysm of unknown origin that destroys half of a distant continent. Black ashen clouds blot out the sun bringing about terrible famine and death.

These events strangely coincide with the uncovering of a Prospherisor’s tomb deep inside a mine. Although uncertain at this point, it seems this entity has the power to invade the minds of humans and take control of them – and by now, we know what their calling is: to awaken their brethren and turn human against human until none remain. A gnostic priest sets to find and awaken an Arhaekon, locked in a similar tomb. Thus, you are awaken and begin your struggle to prevent the extinction of humankind while learning of the new, strange world you awakened upon.  Can you finally turn the balance in favor of the light? Email ImageAll the facts about Arhaekon:Dark fantasy;Roguelike elements including procedural dungeons & loot, units perma-death and more;14 regions with themed dungeons and enemies;Battle-centered turn-based tactical combat gameplay;12 units of 4 classes with unique and highly synergic abilities, experience and tier progression;Corruption System – your units’ health is not your only concern.
