Twin Stick Roguelite Revita Now in Steam Early Access


Solo developer BenStar and Dear Villagers’ twin stick roguelike Revita is now available on Steam Early Access.

This title tasks players with climbing an ominous clock tower in an attempt to reclaim their lost memory. One will be able to trade health for randomized upgrades, and can experience a number of procedurally generated rooms.

The initial Early Access version of the game will feature three biomes, over 150 relics, a customizable station hub, different residents to meet, and more than 30 vanity hats.

Revita – Early Access Launch trailer

According to BenStar aka Benjamin Kiefer, developer of Revita:

[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“After working on the game for four years and a few alpha tests with fans I’m super excited to unleash this love letter for roguelite fans into Steam Early Access. In the game I wanted to combine the best bits of games from my favorite genre, give it a personal touch with a lot of attention to detail and add a gameplay twist that makes the game familiar and fresh at the same time. I hope people will enjoy the gameplay structure that lets you trade health points for extra items and encourage them to constantly weigh up the risks and push their limits.”[/testimonials]

Guillaume Jamet, Head of Publishing for Dear Villagers, added:

[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]”We’ve been secretly supporting BenStar for the last two years and what he’s achieved with Revita is already beyond our expectations. After the great ScourgeBringer from Flying Oak Games, Revita is our new “Pixel Art Action Platformer”, one of the key branches of our editorial line. It combines the best parts of the roguelike genre and oozes with charm and character. The fact that Revita is made by a passionate solo developer really shines through and makes for a unique melancholic gaming experience.”[/testimonials]

The title will retail for $14.99, and will feature a 10% discount until March 9, 2021.
