Blackpowder Games releases Betrayer for the PC as a Steam Early Access title

“We are excited to get feedback while there’s still time to react to it and make the game better,” said game designer Craig Hubbard. “There are only six of us, so being able to hear from gamers who are motivated to help us deliver the best possible experience while we’re still in active development will help us prioritize on the fixes and features that will have the biggest impact.”

Betrayer is an eerie first person action adventure game that takes you to the New World at the turn of the 17th century. The game focuses on exploring, unraveling mysteries, collecting loot to spend on better weaponry, and engaging in brutal combat against deadly enemies.

“We deliberately chose to make a game that doesn’t explain everything to you. You’ll find clues about what’s happening and what befell the colony, but it’ll be up to you to put the pieces together. It’s challenging to strike a balance where players are getting just the right amount of information. Too much and you can lose the sense of accomplishment. Too little and it can get frustrating. We’re hoping the community can help us with the fine tuning.”
