Arhaekon is now available on Steam Early Access

The indie game studio Predict Edumedia has released Arhaekon, into Steam Early Access. If you’re into tactical turn-based roguelike dungeon-crawlers set in a grim, dark fantasy world, then you’d better sit down because this one’s got your name written all over it.

Arhaekon is the kind of game that takes inspiration from Warhammer 40k, Path of Exile, Darkest Dungeon, and Disciples 2. Picture this: you’re binding warriors, battling through corruption, scavenging treasures, and trying to piece together a world that’s pretty much on life support.

Arhaekon features 14 distinct regions with its own theme and enemies, 12 unique unit types for strategic combat, and a corruption system. It’s like walking a tightrope with weights on your ankles, you gotta be on your toes, and if that wasn’t enough, you’ve got complex unit and resource management to deal with, so talk about a test of skill.

What’s remarkable is the game’s procedural music, a currency system that keeps you on your toes, crafting, camp management, and punishing decision-making that could make or break your expedition. They’re also throwing in community-driven development, so your feedback matters.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
