The Game Is Done!
  • Fixing a few remaining bugs.
  • Balancing the game difficulty.
  • General polishing of the game.

We are also preparing the PR for the release in cooperation with pros in the field, which is, really, a new experience for us. We want to make sure everyone who might like our game will get to know about it — this is something you can help us with by sharing information about us.

There is a lot of organizational stuff that has still to be taken care of and since there are just 4 of us in the team + some help from external contributors, we ask for your patience. We are aware that we are hugely behind schedule, but we are planning to release the game ASAP, and September looks like a promising estimation.

To sweeten the waiting, we have prepared a couple of wallpapers that you can use to decorate your desktop in the meantime.

Description
Release date: Spring 2017

Vaporum is a grid-based, single-player & single-character dungeon crawler game seen from the first person perspective in an original steampunk setting. Inspired by old-school games like Dungeon Master I and II, the Eye of the Beholder series, and the most recent Legend of Grimrock I and II.


  • First person real-time combat
  • Puzzles and level-wide objectives
  • Gadget-based RPG system
  • Lots of exploration, loot, and character customization
  • Mysterious storyline filled with secrets
  • Fully voiced main characters
  • Immersive steampunk setting



Combat in Vaporum takes place in real time. Each enemy type has a distinctive set of strengths and weaknesses, and various kinds of attacks and defense mechanisms, so you have to employ different tactics to beat each one.

Weapons differ from each other not only by damage and icon image, but each weapon type has a certain unique bonus or behavior other weapons don't. This adds more depth and thought when choosing what weapons to equip.

You will find many types of gadgets: direct attacks, area attacks, offensive & defensive buffs... While these gadgets are powerful, they also drain your energy, and some enemies are immune to certain types of attacks. So you will have to figure out the best way to deal with every encounter the game throws at you.



Most mechanics in Vaporum are very simple. However, combining these mechanics creates intriguing puzzles and level-wide objectives where you have to use both your wits and reflexes. While most puzzles and riddles are contained in a single room, progression objectives can span an entire level or even multiple levels.



Instead of increasing the abilities of your human character, you will improve an exo-rig that you find early in the game.

The character progression system combines a "you are what you wear" aspect with a long-term development of your exo-rig. The gadget-based system allows you to equip various gadgets to help you define your own playstyle. Because gadgets are items, you can change your loadout at any time, giving you a great deal of flexibility to deal with various situations.

On the other hand, as your exo-rig becomes more powerful by absorbing energy from destroyed enemies, you get to unlock useful circuits on it, gaining significant permanent attribute bonuses and passive skills.

These two approaches result in a ton of customization, all at your will.



Stranded on a small islet in the middle of an ocean, you enter a gigantic mechanical tower. Nothing makes sense to you, but it is all strangely familiar...

If you want to get into the backstory and uncover the mysteries of the tower, you can delve right into it by reading all the notes you can find. Don't worry, though, you can safely ignore all the text. All major story points are told by the main characters and they are fully voiced!

There are many optional areas in the game that you can choose to explore. They usually present some form of additional challenge, but come with a reward too! The tower is riddled with secret passages that contain unique items and notes of its inhabitants, giving you an insight into their lives and events that precede your arrival.



“Even in pre-alpha, Vaporum is looking great, and I could easily see myself pouring hours into an intriguing title like this.” — Destructoid

“Like Grimrock But Steampunk? Yes Please: Vaporum” — Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“The puzzle elements are pretty colorful. Graphics are very well done, and, as you can see, it is a dungeon crawler with a strong steampunk impression!” — 4Gamer[www.4gamer.net]

“The game looks really good and plays smooth. I wanna play the whole thing!” — Antti Tiihonen, Co-Creator of Legend of Grimrock & Steven Seagal of Game Industry at Reboot Develop 2017

“oooOOOooohhh!! :D” — Markus "Notch" Persson

Can't find this in the Steam client. Store search give no result and the Greenlight area has now been removed from the Steam client. Can't wishlist or buy the game on Steam. You might want to change that, if you can.

I'd love to see Vaporum on Linux!

Steampunk Grimrock
I loved Grimrock 1 and 2 and this looks promising as well.
Looking forward to it.
