Curse of the Dead Gods – Early Access Launch Trailer

The Action Roguelike game contains intense challenges, fast-paced combat, powerful weapons, abilities, and false deities to slay. Your character sought eternal life, untold riches, and god-like powers, which has brought you to this accursed temple. You’ll undertake the quest to survive an onslaught of divine powers and the greed that threatens to consume you. Corruption builds within you as you journey deep into labyrinths with ever-changing traps, pits, and monsters. The curses you are subjected to promise great power, but demand a high price in return.

As part of the Curse of the Dead Gods’ Early access kick-off, players will be able to explore the Jaguar side of the Temple. This part of the temple features nine fighting styles, 10+ standard curses, room variants, and relics to discover. Players will also find unique game mechanics and traps.

Some of the available Curses include:

  • Unstable Corpses – You’ll set your enemies on fire. Upon death, they will explode and hurt everything around them.
  • Golden Skin – Damage that you take will be split between your health and gold pool. You’ll be alive, but not wealthy.
  • Obscure Swiftness – Fuse with the darkness. Fade from reality while performing a dodge roll.
  • Deadly Traps – Spike traps spring rhythmically instead of through pressure application. 

The Steam Early Access page showcases upcoming updates like new temples, traps, enemies, bosses, modes, mechanics, weapons, curses, and more, all developed with feedback from the community.
