    The backer beta for memetic Pillars of Eternity clone Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness has been out for about a year now. Things were pretty quiet for a while after it launched, but a few months ago GrapeOcean began posting Kickstarter updates rather frequently, culminating in last month's announcement that the game had been picked up a small publishing outfit called V Publishing. The Steam page for Black Geyser actually appeared a week ago but for whatever reason it was only formally announced today, along with an Early Access launch date of August 26th. Here's the announcement along with the game's new trailer, now uploaded to YouTube:



    Ho there, adventurers!

    Today's an important milestone for Black Geyser. We've finally released our Steam page, unleashed our latest trailer to show just some of what we've been working on, while also having answers to some prominent community questions. Best of all, we're officially announcing our Early Access date: August 26th, 2021!

    Steam Page

    Our Steam Page took quite some time to get right, but I think it's fair to say we're all incredibly happy with the result. Eagle-eyed fans who were busy searching for it found it well ahead of this announcement, and we're pleased to say feedback has been incredibly positive.

    Not only does it give those new to Black Geyser an overview of the game and what they can come to expect, but it also answers some burning Early Access questions. Just head to the page (you can click below) and look just under the carousel.

    We're keen to gain as much feedback as possible with how it looks, what comparable games you see, and whether you think anything is missing. Just let us know below, or head straight to our Discord. Oh, and don't forget to 'Wishlist' and 'Follow' us!

    Community Q&A
    Our fans recently asked us plenty of questions about the game and while we're still getting answers to a couple that are hardware related, we've answered the vast majority. Check it out here.

    In addition to the community Q&A, there are lots of additional details about the upcoming release in the Early Access FAQ. Be sure to also check out the records of the amusing visit we received from the game's former lead narrative designer back in April.

    Looks like a cheap dime a dozen PoE ripoff. Jesus Christ, just end it.

    Sure looks better than it sounds, but the 3d models do have this cheapo washed up texturing still.

    Oh, it's still kicking? If memory serves they were originally styling themselves as spiritual successors to BG, but then they must've thought a PoE-like look more marketable.

    When my motherboard died last summer, I fully migrated off of Windows. So many games are calling me back.

    It will be better than PoE just because Joshua Eric Sawyer is not involved.

    Not exactly a Herculean feat, since you need real talent to have lore dumps, bland world, abhorrent ruleset, bizarre core systems, cringe companions, all in the same game. Or just not have Soyer as lead.

    Make the Codex Great Again! Grab the Codex by the pussy
    I'm still stuck in the 'whoa what is that name' stage. Seriously what images do they want to conjure up? Explosive diarrhea? BBC? The dead of Black Isle and it's transformation into the shit volcano that is bioware?

    But still cautiously optimistic. Hope it will turn out as good as pathfinder just without the stupid city building

    Never been so misled by a game's title before; just watched the trailer, tissues at the ready, expecting a tsunami of unwanted phallic intrusions into unlucky waifus and what do I find - it's some CRPG shite that looks like it was made in the 90s.
    This is just like the time people told me Day of the Tentacle was a great game, man, what a letdown that was.
