Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness Release Date Announced

GrapeOcean Technologies launched Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness, their take on an isometric party-based fantasy RPG, into early access last year. And according to this recent Steam announcement, this Baldur’s Gate-inspired project should be getting a full release in about a month, on March 17, 2022.

With that in mind, here’s a quick overview of the game’s early access journey:

Ho there, adventurers!

Since Black Geyser released into Early Access in August 2021, we’ve been blown away by the sheer amount of feedback and support we’ve received. We knew that the game wasn’t quite where we wanted it to be, and we wanted to work hard and use this time to refine our vision.

In total, we’ve delivered over 19 huge updates. From significant improvements to loading times, all new quest chapters, to a fully reworked tutorial and fresh zones: explore the northern frozen harbour of Freynagar, separated from the city by a huge ice dome, or take a trip to Amanuel’s Hoard, the seaside fort owned by the greediest man in history.

We’ve also delivered Linux and Mac Support, a full rebalance for casters, implemented improved boss mechanics and delivered major improvements to its combat and damage scaling. We’re not finished, and with our launch date agreed as March 17, 2022, we’ve still more to do in the coming weeks!

We wanted to thank everyone who has been on this journey with us, and we can’t wait for you to dive into the full release as we get over the finish line. In the coming days, we’ll be releasing more information on what’s on the horizon, as well as some blog posts giving any new players greater insight into the world we’ve been creating and our all-new launch trailer.
