Solasta Early Access available NOW on Steam!

Solasta Early Access available NOW on Steam!

That's it folks,

We've finally made it to Steam Early Access! It's hard to imagine that it's been barely a year since the end of our Kickstarter Campaign, isn't it? The game has changed so much since the first Demo we released that it feels like an eternity. I even begin to tell you how happy we are to finally be able to not only show, but even put the game in your hands at last. Alright let's cut this intro short - apologies but no feline friends for this time!


Get Solasta Early Access on Steam now!

This one is for everyone who missed our Kickstarter and repeatedly asked us if we could have a late backer option - you can now buy the game on Steam! We're celebrating the release with a -15% launch Discount for the week, and will appear in the very relevant upcoming Steam Festival - The Digital Tabletop Fest

If you're not familiar with Early Access, getting the game on Steam now will also give you the final game at launch (you won't need to buy it twice) - however keep in mind that save files will likely not be compatible. 

Also... You played and enjoyed Solasta? Help us out by leaving an honest review on Steam! The gods of Steam Algorithms are finicky, and the more reviews we have the better off we'll be!


Early Access Launch Trailer is out!

New monsters? New environments? New spells? LORE? To celebrate our Early Access Launch, here is a brand new trailer for everyone to enjoy! 


Solasta Supporter Pack DLC

Kickstarter Backers, make sure to redeem your Supporter Pack Key to enjoy some high resolution Concept Art of Solasta (as well as some Digital Dice Customization when 1.0 releases). For the others, if you love Solasta so much that you want to further support the studio after buying the game, head to the DLC Page!


Share your Feedback & Suggestions!

A large part of Early Access is about you - our community - and how you can help us shape the game into what you really want Solasta to be. As such, we ask you not to be shy - if there are bugs you'd like to see squashed, features you'd like to get implemented or tweaks you'd like to see added, come and tell us! Our Official Forums are here for that.

Dev Update #22 - Less than 2 weeks before Early Access

Dev Update #22 - Less than 2 weeks before Early Access

Hey there folks,

As we're in our last sprint towards Early Access release, today's Dev Update is going to be much lighter than usual! Still, do keep reading as there is plenty of information you may want to have for our release day. And of course, cat pic! 

Hope you saved your work, cat splat incoming


Dice for the Dice Gods!

Just dropping it again if case you missed it last week, the Dice Preview video is here and you should definitely watch it if you haven't already! Don't worry this one is short compared to the previous ones: In and out, 3-minute adventure. 


Solasta Early Access Previews available!

Since the beginning of this week, we've been showing bits and pieces of our Early Access to journalists and game websites - so keep an eye out for new information about our game that was never revealed yet! Here are two articles that are already out:


Steam Autumn Game Festival

We're back with the Ruins of Telema Demo for one final time during the Steam Autumn Game Festival. If you haven't already, make sure you play Telema before it gets forever retired when our Early Access goes live. It's almost time to say goodbye to Violet, Garrad, Vigdis and Rhuad! Farewell heroes, Hector shall probably never be saved.

I can't believe it's already been more than a year since this demo was released. Hopefully we shall go back to Telema one day!


Backers, be prepared!

As we announced in our latest Kickstarter Update, we will be sending Early Access Steam Keys towards end of next week. Here is all the important information:

  • We will post a new Kickstarter Update after sending the keys, so you won't have to wonder if you missed something or not.
  • The game will unlock on Tuesday October 20th at 2 am PDT / 5 am EDT / 11 am CEST - the hour may yet change. 
  • The Steam Keys will be sent by mail through CrowdOx, so make sure to check your junk folder if you can't find anything after we post our Kickstarter Update next week!
    • If you didn't receive any mail, you can also find your key on your CrowdOx Survey URL, which was sent to you last year in November ("Pledge Confirmation")
    • Forgot what your URL was? You can get it back here: https://app.crowdox.com/retrieve/tacticaladventures/solasta-crown-of-the-magister 
    • Tried it already but it's not working out? Contact us directly at contact@tactical-adventures.com with your Kickstarter Name, Real Name, Kickstarter Email and Pledge Level (note that due to being busy with release, it may take some time for us to answer - so only use that mail as last recourse)


Supporter Pack - Unlocked for free to all Kickstarter Backers!

As with many other Steam games, Solasta will be sporting a Supporter Pack when Early Access releases for those who want to further support us financially. This package will contain a few goodies: a high resolution concept art pack, with some additional dice customization and dice VFX available when the full 1.0 version launches. Reminder that buying this pack is first and foremost to show support for the game and the studio, the goodies are absolutely non-essential to get the full game experience of Solasta. 

  • If you are a Kickstarter Backer, you will automatically receive a Steam Key for the Supporter Pack around the same time you get your Solasta Early Access Key, there is no need for you to buy it again - we'd rather you leave us a review and talk to about the game online. You supported us plenty a year ago, so the goodies are on us!
  • Note that the Supporter Pack is different from the Kickstarter Edition, which remains exclusive to Kickstarter Backers at Tier $40+. The Kickstarter Edition bonus content will be unlocked when the full 1.0 version launches in 2021. 

Our environment concept art make for great wallpapers and can easily be used in your pen and paper sessions

Need some inspiration for your character's new magic weapon? Our Solastan weapons are available in high resolution as well!


That's it for today! Thank you for reading, and don't hesitate to drop by our Forums or our Discord Server.

Dev Update Video: Dice System Preview

Dev Update Video: Dice System Preview

Hey there folks, 
I honestly didn't think I'd manage to sneak in a Video Dev Diary so close to our Early Access launch, but turns out that one doesn't need sleep to survive when you ace those Constitution Saving Throws! And in case you didn't manage to succeed your Intelligence (Insight) check, I was just kidding. Crunch bad mmm'kay? Anyway today is a bit of a shorter video, but I think all of you dice lovers out there will be very much interested in it!

Enjoy! There probably won't be another Video Dev Diary for a while as we'll be focusing on our Early Access Launch for the foreseeable future (but don't worry, it will come back at some point).

Dev Update #21 - Onwards, towards Early Access!

Dev Update #21 - Onwards, towards Early Access!

Hey there folks,

Now that you all have a date to look forward to, it's time for us to dash towards the first checkpoint (the final goal being v1.0 release in 2021 of course). Early Access has been announced, and we're here to deliver! We've been hard at work creating Solasta: Crown of the Magister's campaign, but we've also been working out the issues from our Kickstarter Demo days - camera, facial animations, bugs and quality of life galore. And of course, we'll continue to do so all throughout our Early Access! But before we start today's Dev Update...

I'm pretty sure our 3D Programmer rolled a Beast Master in his previous life, here is a hedgehog from his garden


Solasta coming to Steam Early Access October 20th 2020!

To all of you out there who rolled 1 in Intelligence (Investigation), you may want to know that Solasta is coming to Steam Early Access on October 20th 2020 (that's a bit more than one month). As a reminder, every Kickstarter Backer whose rewards included the game (Tier $18 and above) will receive an Early Access Key, and non-backers will finally be able to buy the game as well!

We updated our Steam Page with an Early Access FAQ where you can read more about our plans and what's included in Solasta's Early Access


Ask Us Anything on Discord - Thursday September 17th!

As Early Access is coming right around the corner, we'll be hosting an AMA on our official Discord server on Thursday!

Starting at 5 am PDT / 8 am EDT / 2 pm CEST, I will be online (with the rest of the team not so far away) for a few hours to answer any question you may have on Discord. Not there during those hours? Worry not, the AMA Channel will be open for the rest of the day so ask away and we'll pick back up the next morning! In order to avoid missing out on the information that will be shared, I will be compiling the questions & answers in a separate channel where only devs can talk.

Got a question? Fire away (with advantage on your roll)! 

Once the AMA is over, I will also be putting up a recap in our Forums so that those who couldn't make it don't miss out on some juicy tidbits! Don't be shy, drop by and say hello^^


Death is not the End

For most unfortunate adventurers who meet their fate at the hands of undead foes, death is a blessing more than a curse - as it is highly likely that damned will join the swelling ranks of the Undead. From the lowly skeleton to the elite Wight, all of them were once living breathing beings!

Dread Brood Concept Art

Flesh Brood Concept Art

Blood Brood Concept Art

Wight Armor 3D Model - we're trying to see if we can make the armor work on player characters as well!


More Art for the Art Gods

While there are plenty of stuff we would love to show you, we have to keep spoilers to a minimum as we still want you to discover Solasta on your own during Early Access (and later in the full release as well). Still, here is a selection of Concept Art and in-game screenshots!

Ruined mansions are pretty great... Say, how much do you think that painting is worth?

While traveling in the wild, you suddenly hear rustling! Roll 2d4 - 5 starving wolves jump from the bushes, roll initiative!

More Work In Progress Spell Icons, including Healing Push-Ups, because sport is good for your health (this one is getting reworked)


The Return of the Bloopers

Getting closer to Early Access means we're starting to squash bugs left and right... which means bloopers are back on the menu, and boy do they look spicy!

Implementing new faces means breaking the older ones, now they look like they just got hit by a Bestow Curse (CHA)

Abort, abort! Cutscene broke, cutscene broke!


That's it for today! Thank you for reading, and don't hesitate to drop by our Forums or our Discord Server.

Our Team

The founder, Mathieu Girard, was co-founder of Amplitude Studios. For Tactical Adventures, he has gathered a team of experienced industry veterans, all with experience from major publishers or indie studios.

Brought together by our shared expertise and passionate about making games, we plan to remain a small studio of 15 to 20 people, efficient and focused on creating great games with powerful narratives.

We are all big fans of board games and tabletop role playing games, and the objective of Tactical Adventures is to design a unique experience on computers and consoles. Supported by experienced partners, we are a united and ambitious team.

Our Mission

Our goal is to recreate the feel of a tabletop RPG onscreen, through the faithful adaptation of rules and universes.

While computer RPGs have existed for almost 40 years, the technology has progressed, new forms of interaction have been invented, and Tactical Adventures has created some critical evolutions in computer RPG mechanics, which will bring the interactive experience as close to that of a tabletop RPG as possible.

Want to join us ?

There are no current openings, but if you are really talented at what you do and you would like to join us, feel free to contact us !
