Divinia Chronicles: Relics of Gan-Ti enters early access

Divinia Chronicles
Martin Sander of German developer Team Monkey has written in to announce that 3D over-the-shoulder action RPG Divinia Chronicles: Relics of Gan-Ti (previously covered here) has now been released on Steam Early Access.

The premise, in case you forgot:

A long time ago at the peak of the High Kingdom of Pandura, a group of seers looked into legends of a powerful force believed to be the origin of life; this they called ‘Gan’, though modern peoples know it as ‘Divinia’. The ancients sought to utilize Gan as a weapon; in doing so, their perverse intentions spawned the malignant ‘Gan-Ti’, or ‘anti-life’. Infusing Gan-Ti into artifacts, the godlike High Kings ruled the Panduran Archipelago with an iron fist. Eventually, rebellion arose and the Order of Archkeepers was formed of the most noble warriors to free the people. They managed to capture the relics of Gan-Ti and cast them into the fiery pits of Mt. Suvius near the shores of Oria island. With the evil power of the relics suppressed, the monsters that terrorized the countryside were slain and the old Kings overthrown. Peace had come. As of late, however, rumblings have been heard from Mt. Suvius, and the wise have come to fear an eruption. With a reckless young King having just assumed the throne of Oria, will the powers of Gan-Ti again fall into the hands of the most powerful, or can a new force arise to combat the inevitable?

Here’s the latest trailer:

Sander lists the game’s features as follows:

  • Indie Action-RPG with a story driven campaign, inspired by SNES classics
  • Explore a rich and detailed 3d fantasy world
  • Fast-paced 3rd person combat and magic system
  • Challenging dungeons and puzzles to solve
  • Full game-pad support
  • Original soundtrack
  • Unique, vibrant art-style
  • NO always-online, NO micro-transactions

The game as it now stands features only the first three chapters (one of which is a dungeon and another of which is the prologue). There is clearly still a lot of content left to be made, but the developers are enticing people to buy early by implementing a pricing structure in which the game will cost more and more as it progresses toward completion.

Divinia Chronicles is currently $14.99 on Steam; Windows only.
