Hey there folks,

This is it. A little more than a year and a half after our Kickstarter and 7 months of Early Access, we're finally there - Solasta 1.0 is now available on PC. Now the only question that remains is... Are you ready?

We wouldn't be there today without our feline moral support squad

Solasta 1.0 - Available now!


Solasta is finally 100% content complete and ready to be enjoyed by everyone out there. You will be able to play the entire main campaign as well as experience all the sidequests we've prepared for you!

Here is what you can expect from Solasta 1.0:

  • A full epic campaign that will take you from level 1 to 10
  • A large amount of sidequests to enrich and gear up your party
  • Several new and exotic environments filled with dangerous monsters
  • A full orchestral upgrade of Solasta's Original Soundtrack
  • Many improvements requested by the community
  • Less bugs, more stability, better performance
  • A sizeable update to the Dungeon Maker (still in beta) with 3 completely new environments, new monsters and new gadgets that we'll go into more details below

The 1.0 version is compatible with saves from the March Spring Update, however we do recommend to start fresh to ensure you get the final launch experience of Solasta!


Get Solasta in your favorite store!

Solasta is now out, and available on multiple different platforms. Choose your favorite!


Dungeon Maker Update - Stronghold, Lava Caves & Elven Palace

With the 1.0 launch of Solasta, the Dungeon Maker has also received a significant update! Stronghold, Lava Caves and Elven Palace will now join the sides of Necropolis, increasing the number of available environments in the Dungeon Maker to four! Each environment has very different visuals, mood and props available, making them unique in their own right. Just take a look below!

Stronghold - Library

Lava Caves - Mine Tunnel

Elven Palace - Dining Hall

We have also added quite a few new features, such as inner walls to break existing rooms into smaller rooms, activator gadgets to remotely trigger other gadgets such as doors or monster spawns, a key / lock system to allow doors and chests to be opened with specific items, huge and gargantuan monster spawners...

If you want to learn more about all of that, just head to the Dungeon Maker Guide!


Solasta Orchestral Soundtrack up for grabs!

Loved the music? The Original Solasta Soundtrack composed Maxime Hervé, containing 23 tracks (MP3/FLAC) from the game, is now available both on Steam and other platforms!

For you collectors out there, our audio partner G4F Records are also going to open pre-orders for the Solasta Vinyl on their website: https://www.g4f-records.com/en/shop/


Kickstarter Backers - How to access your Rewards?

Alright, you've got some free time, drinks and snacks at hand - how do you make sure you have your in-game rewards once your start your campaign?


Q: I didn't even receive my Steam / GOG Key of the game. Where can I find it?

A: You should have received a CrowdOx email long ago with your login information. Just log into CrowdOx and you'll be able to find all your rewards there: https://portal.crowdox.com/digital


Q: I can't find my CrowdOx email / information. What do I do now?

A: No worries! You can simply request a new mail by entering your Kickstarter email address over there: https://app.crowdox.com/retrieve/tacticaladventures/solasta-crown-of-the-magister


Q: I'm trying to add the key on Steam, but I'm getting a message saying I need the game already installed?

A: That's very likely because you're trying to install a DLC before you've installed the game. Make sure you start by adding the game key on Steam before adding the DLC keys.


Q: How do I get my in-game Kickstarter Items to appear in-game and where can I find them?

Depending on your Backer Tier, you will receive keys for the following DLCs (cumulative):

  • Kickstarter Backer Items DLC (18€+ backers): Contains the Early Bird, Dwarven Bread, Six League Boots, The One Ring & Spoon of Discord items.
  • Digital Kickstarter Content DLC (36€+ backers): Contains the Everlasting Torch item & Special VFX for the Burning Hands & Sacred Flame spells.
  • Loaded Dice Package DLC (58€+ backers): Contains the Loaded Dice item

You will need to install those DLCs first, and then go to Caer Cyflen. There will be a chest located next to the Monument of the Dead near the Legacy Council, the items will be in there. This should also work on existing saves, not just fresh runs!


Q: Some of these items are not magical / don't do anything?

A: Don't forget to identify them! If you don't have a wizard, Hugo Requer can help you (he's located in the marketplace, close to the tavern)


Q: I'm seeing two Burning Hands & two Sacred Flame icons when choosing my spells?

A: That's normal! You can choose between the Kickstarter version or the regular version of the spell. They both do the same thing, but the visuals will be different.


Q: What about the other digital rewards?

A: So, originally we wanted to have all the digital rewards at launch, but with the amount of work we had to prepare the 1.0 launch we preferred not to rush out them out. The digital rewards available at launch are:

  • The In-Game Kickstarter Items and VFX
  • The Supporter Pack Dices (if you're a backer you received a free Steam key of the Supporter DLC)
  • The Digital Orchestral Soundtrack (Steam Soundtrack, FLAC & mp3 format)

The digital rewards we'll work on releasing in the coming weeks:

  • The Solasta Digital World Map (psd & png format)
  • The Dev Documents
  • The Solasta Tabletop Sourcebook PDF

For the Solasta Tabletop Sourcebook, we will give you an update later on it with the rest of the other Kickstarter Physical Goods. Thank you for your patience!


Q: What about the physical rewards?

We'll give you an update in the coming weeks about the Kickstarter Physical Rewards (Vinyl / Adventure Box / Sourcebook). Originally we had intended for them to be sent within 3 months of the 1.0 release, but with the current COVID situation it may take a bit longer - though worry not, we're getting there (we'll release more pictures & info in the next update).

---------------------------

Alright folks, that's all for now! Go and enjoy the game, and thanks again for all your support. If you run into any bugs, please inform us on Steam, Discord or our forums!

Having a spot of trouble finding the keys for Kickstarter Backer Items DLC, Digital Kickstarter Content DLC, and Loaded Dice Package DLC.

I backed at €76, but crowdox only shows that I should have the game (steam and GoG), the Supporter pack, and the forum reward...


EDIT: Woke up to a mail with keys for my missing DLC

Same but for the lesser reward, so should get the basic kickstarter backer (Early Bird Backer Items DLC) but just showing as "supporter" pack etc as above

Wow, way to go team! You guys are distinguished by actually meeting your timeline, an event rare these days, you just didn't blame the pandemic. Glad you realized and adapted to overcome the extra burdens the pandemic brought and through proper flexible planning and execution succeeded! Well Done!!

Are you changing how the community should report bugs or desired 'adjustments'? Could you put up a new post on the most effective way we can feed you suspected bugs and game-play issues please?


Reading is Fundamental, and makes RPG's more fun too!!

I put the keys into steam however the dice are not there. Also does anyone know how to use the dwarven bread. It does not appear to be consumable and doesn't go in any of the gear slots.

Are the €45+ in-game backer rewards available for the GOG-version as well? Because I only received a GOG Supporter Edition key.

Anyone have a clue when the Sorcerer comes out? I'd rather wait a little more and run a campaign with one than restart it after a day. Cheers everyone and enjoy the game!

Today's announcement states that backer rewards are individual DLCs (not visible in the Steam store of course).  Check if you have any DLC.  Sorry if you have already done this: it is just not clear in your message.  If you do not have them, try to check your past backer emails.  Those emails should also state to whom you should write if it is not working for you. 

Sorcerer, as has been stated since forever, is a future DLC

I purchased the early version of the game almost as soon as it came out, but didn't pay enough attention to the whole 36€+ backers thing.  What qualifies you as a backer?  I hate steam, and have been wishing I waited for GOG and got it there.
