Fast. Fluid. Fun. Gather up to 4 friends online and go on a galactic adventure! Embark on a touching tale of friendship and time-travel, find awesome loot, customize your Hunters with deep RPG systems, and experience the next-generation of top-down shooter combat with gorgeous 2.5D visuals! The Relic Hunters universe is also expanding into comics and animated series!
Relic Hunters Legend tells the story of a mysterious time-traveller with no memories and a ragtag band of relic hunters, who join forces to defeat an evil villain who has stolen the past!
In the fantastic sci-fi world of the Relic Hunters, the entire Galaxy is ruled by the Duke Ducan and his Ducan troops. The evil Duke has somehow stolen the past, and tells everyone that he is responsible for everything good that has ever happened - providing legitimacy to his oppressive regime.
Led by Pinkyy and Jimmy, the Relic Hunters travel around the Galaxy looking for ancient ruins and Relics of the old civilization (the “Keepers”), trying to restore the memory of the true past. In Relic Hunters Legend, they will find a new mysterious ally: Seven, who has no memories and the strange ability to travel back and forth through time.
Since Relic Hunters is a persistent online game, our goal is to tell a deep, non-linear, character-driven story across many years, just like a TV series. We already have a rough script for the first Season, and it will flesh out the Universe, present characters new and old, and reach a satisfying conclusion, while still leaving many opportunities open for the next Seasons to pick up the story.
Our story will also be expanded by the comics (which tell the events that happened before Legend) and animated short movies!
By backing this project, you will help us do our part in making Free games fun and honest for everyone. If you don't like Free-to-Play games, this is your opportunity to help us change them, and don't let the bad guys win!
This is a sequel to a 100% free game, with no micro-transactions. We make games because we love them. We want to support the development, and we want our players to be happy.
- Here is the link to our Free-To-Play Manifesto;
- The game will be free after Closed Beta (estimated 2019). If you back us now, you will allow us to stay independent, get super early access, help us shape the game, and win tons of value in the form of exclusive titles/cosmetic rewards and in-game currency;
- Fun and making players happy always comes first. And second. And third.
- There will be absolutely no “Pay-to-Win” or “Pay Wall”. Never. Ever.
- Everything in the game will be achievable by players who don’t spend money.
- There will be options for everyone: those who spend a little, those who spend a lot, and those who spend nothing. You are all Hunters, money won’t change that.
- If you are anxious about deciding how much to spend, there will be a “Premium” option that is balanced to be the optimal experience, with a steady stream of premium currency – don’t stress about enjoying the game, that’s our job!
- We will always be transparent about our intentions, about how our microtransactions work, and why. Communication is key in a relationship, and we want our relationship with you to be long-term.
This is our dream game. It is a mix of our passion for deep and fun co-op combat that will have you shouting with your friends over the microphone; and our love of all things RPG: great characters, story and dialogue, interesting strategic decision when building and equipping your characters, and tons of items to collect and upgrade.
We have never been so excited about a game before! It's going to be a true adventure, and a true sequel to our previous game, Relic Hunters Zero.
Zero was the very definition of a "labor of love" - love for its gameplay, character, style, and fans. We made it 100% free, with open source code and Steam Workshop mods. With over a million dedicated players, glowing reviews, awards, countless mods, fanart galore, and the best fans in the world - Relic Hunters Zero became a success story.
With this new game, Relic Hunters Legend, we want to give our fans what they always wanted: online play, deep RPG systems, and a chance to dive deep into the story of our characters and their world! Come make this dream a reality with us!
There are many more Characters to come on the next campaign updates! Meet the mysterious Seven, the adorable Panzer, and the hug-able Biu.
Our ace is in the sleeve for this project is Raphael Müller - he has quietly become one of the best game composers around, with stunning soundtracks for games such as Chroma Squad, Dungeonland, Star Vikings, Galaxy of Pen & Paper, and a few tracks on Relic Hunters Zero.
This time he is dedicated to a single goal: make Relic Hunters Legend's soundtrack the best he has ever written.
Is he succeeding? Listen to these first tracks and judge by yourself :)
Relic Hunters Legend OST - Take It Back
Relic Hunters Legend OST - Ode To Times That Never Were
With over a decade of games industry experience, Mark has seen it all, working independently and with publishers big and small. He also filled the role of Designer and Producer in Chroma Squad and Dungeonland, and in Relic Hunters Zero he coded the entire game from scratch. Loves games about shooting and/or looting, cooking, playing the guitar and his two rescue cats “Raj” and “Fuça”. His favorite character is Pinkyy - he even has a Pinkyy tattoo!
Betu’s track record in game development is flawless: Knights of Pen & Paper, Chroma Squad, Relic Hunters Zero and Galaxy of Pen & Paper. Always working as part of an art team at Behold Studios, with Relic Hunters Legend he has the opportunity to direct the art by himself for the very first time - it’s a very personal project for him, and it shows, with beautiful art that just oozes character. He is also a circus artist who can often be found upside down or hanging from ropes, or skating downhill on Sundays. His favorite character is Jimmy - the first one he designed for Relic Hunters!
Raphael has been Mark’s inseparable partner since they began to make games over 10 years ago. An outright legendary composer and designer, he has worked on a massive list of games that include Dungeonland, Chroma Squad, Relic Hunters Zero and Galaxy of Pen & Paper. This German-born (but Brazilian at heart) composer loves sushi and chocolate, languages and literature, travelling and trekking. His favorite character is Raff, which Betu designed as a “thank you” for being such a sweetheart and working on Relic Hunters Zero for free!
Amazing Friends from Around the World
But the founding trio of Relic Hunters is no longer alone - for Relic Hunters Legend they have recruited the help of super talented friends from all corners of the Earth - coders, artists, marketers, you name it. With your backing, we can keep recruiting these helping hands to make Legend into the game we envision!
Yes, you! By backing on any Founder tier, you will be a part of development. With Chroma Squad and Relic Hunters Zero, we have a track record of developing games with our communities, and they always have come out better for it! We want to have you along for the ride and make a great game together.
Relic Hunters Legend is a very personal game for us. Its predecessor, Relic Hunters Zero, was a labor of love, made available in open source form, unconditionally free. For the first time in their careers, Mark, Betu and Muller created a professional-level game with none of the usual professional-level expectations of success. They just made what they wanted, how they wanted, and the result was Relic Hunters Zero, which amassed over 1 million players and overwhelmingly positive user reviews.
With the sequel, we want to give fans of the first game everything they’ve always wanted: online cooperative play, deeper customization, and a bigger focus on characters and story.
Newcomers to the Relic Hunters series will also find a game that boast a unique artstyle, delicious and fluid controls, an obsessive amount of attention to detail on the 3D combat design, and a touching story with an ensemble of characters that are easy to fall in love with. Come take this journey with us!
Even though Relic Hunters Legend is a commercial game with large-scale ambitions, we want to maintain the free spirit and community-driven energy of Relic Hunters Zero. Mark is already investing all of his savings into this game, but in order for Legend to reach its full potential, it needs more funding.
That’s where Kickstarter comes in. If the campaign is successful, it will allow us to have not only the extra funding that we need to make the game great, but also bring in the super fans and early adopters that will give us input and help us shape the game from an early stage.
If you help us make this Kickstarter succeed, we can stay independent and make the game we all want to play - together!

Risks and challenges
Making a game this big comes with huge challenges, and as industry veterans we are fully aware of this.
We are doing a Kickstarter at this point in time to ensure we have the resources next year to maintain our current momentum. Our focus is to keep our costs as low as possible and to ensure that we can bring this project to the finish line without running out of money. Doing this campaign successfully now will pretty much guarantee that we can get the project to an Early Access state where it becomes sustainable, with the revenue that comes in fuelling additional development.
If we go past (or even WAY past) our goal for this Kickstarter, it will allow us to hire more people and do the game faster and better. We will also be able to postpone monetization for longer, since we won't be needing Early Access revenue to fund the game to completion. We will also be able to pay back our investors at SPCine and stay as independent as possible, with no one but our fans telling us what to do and when.
We also acknowledge that physical rewards can present problems down the road. We are working directly with a team in the US to make sure that all of our rewards are produced and delivered in quality and in time. Shipping from the US will also reduce shipping costs and potential issues. We also chose the rewards very carefully to make sure we reduce the risk of not delivering, delivering late, or end up losing money instead of using it to develop the game.
Ultimately, we are experienced enough in the industry to take the risks seriously, but we also want to ensure our backers that we mean business - this campaign is our baby, as is this game, and we are taking every step extremely seriously. We have a reputation of being honest and of doing all that we can to keep our promises. Like we said on the video: we will respect every single dollar from our backers, because you are believing on this dream just as we do.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
