Vambrace: Cold Soul – “Feature #3” Trailer

Vambrace: Cold Soul – “Feature #3” Trailer

Headup and Devespresso Games invite you to explore the world of Vambrace: Cold Soul in a series of trailers that showcase the roguelike fantasy-adventure’s unique systems. Feature #3 will lay a clear path for the icy overworld of Icenair.

The cursed city is a truly hostile place. Each new room contains randomly generated events, ranging from traps, campsites, valuable treasure, merchants, strange encounters, and enemies. You never know what’s gonna happen next, so stay alert. Also, always keep an eye on your Geist-o-meter, which measures the Ghost Fog and keeps you one step ahead of the danger pursuing you!

The guys from Devespresso Games are listening to the community’s constructive feedback and are eager to bring the game to its best possible form. The latest patch, v1.06, was just released on Steam & GOG. That means the team released a new update for the game every single day!

Perhaps you thought the game was promising, but were initially deterred by its difficulty, balance issues, or design choices. Many players are reporting their experience has completely turned around in less than a week thanks to the updates. Check this list to see if any of your issues were solved:

Rebalancing

  • Character stats have been rebalanced
  • Enemy stats have been rebalanced
  • Combat encounters have been decreased in Neighborhoods
  • The rate at which the Geist-o-meter rises has been decreased and allows more exploration
  • The walking speed in dungeons has been increased
  • All chapters have had their expeditions rebalanced for flow & optimal challenge

New Additions

  • Game Tutorial: It is now accessible anytime from the pause screen.
  • Combat Fast Forward: You can double the speed of combat by holding the Shift button.
  • Recruiting Board: You can now view character stats before you hire them.
  • Relics: You may equip or unequip Relics on your expedition at any time.
  • Shelters: An all-new addition to the game! Shelters now exist between all neighborhoods. This allows you reliable times to access & craft items to replenish your party before moving into the next area. No longer will your expedition fall victim to RNG.
  • Bullion Chips: A new loot drop from enemies featuring Gold, Silver, and Copper bullion chips adds variety to combat encounters. These can be traded to merchants for hellion (money).
  • New Game +: The newest feature allows players to access a basic New Game+ mode to move through chapters faster and unlock costumes and new endings that would have taken many hours to otherwise.
  • Skip Tutorial: Now available.
  • Steam Cloud Saving: Has been implemented

Fixes

  • Various typo fixes.
  • Various quest fixes.

And that is just the beginning. The team is hard at work seeking to implement long-term QOL changes as well.

A Word from the Developer

When we launched Vambrace: Cold Soul, the community was swift in letting us know what we got right, wrong, and could have implemented better. As a small 4-man team, we took this feedback to heart and were equally swift with updates. It was the first time we were able to benefit from mass feedback – of which in-house QA is simply not a substitute.

Over the course of a week, we released a new patch on an almost daily basis. These changes have made Vambrace an entirely new experience for most of our community members. Please check the new features. If you believe that any of them could have drastically improved your experience, we invite you to revisit the game. As always, we are deeply appreciative of your time, and honest feedback! – T.L. Riven

Vambrace: Cold Soul is available on Steam and GoG. The release dates for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are planned for Q3 2019; those versions will contain all PC patches.
