Tanzia launches on Thursday, April 27th on Steam Early Access!

Early Access roadmap:

  • The first EA build will feature all but the last few chapters.
  • The last chapters will be released during Early Access.
  • We'll do small in-between updates in case of bugs.
  • Players will be able to keep playing after reaching the end of each build, if they want to level up, buy gear or finish sidequests.

About Tanzia

Become the greatest shaman to ever lob a fireball. Retrace the steps of your Akazi ancestors to prevent your island home of Tanzia from being overrun by an ancient evil. Your elders will guide you, but it is up to you to master your skills and live up to your family’s legacy. An old-style RPG made with modern tech and set in a unique world, Tanzia combines elements of favorite classic action-adventure RPGs in an open 3D world full of magic and monsters. 

Tanzia's story design was developed in collaboration with Kevin Saunders (whose previous work includes as a senior designer on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, lead designer on Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer, and project director on Torment: Tides of Numenera).
