Stoutheart: Broken Spirits
Stoutheart: Broken Spirits is a deceptively lighthearted 3D roguelike action game, where you are a disembodied spirit granted the ability to possess enemy robots to inherit their unique abilities. Venture through an ever-changing steampunk island, engaging in Souls-inspired combat to defeat the forces of a robotic hivemind and reclaim free will for those it controls.
The game began as a proof-of-concept in a Production Studio class during the Spring semester of 2020, and is developed by Dark Ring Studio. They are a small yet passionate team of RIT upperclassmen formed during the COVID-19 pandemic, consisting of programmers Andrew Brook, Adam Hall, and Ryan Montero alongside artists Raman Mandavia and David Lin. The team aims to release to Steam early access once the game has reached a minimum viable product state, and hopes to continue its growth as a company along the way!
