Colossus Teaser Trailer

11 months ago News 0 comments
Wanderlust Adventures Alpha


To show our appreciation for all your help in making Wanderlust Adventures one of the Top 100 Indies of 2014, we've created a little teaser trailer showing off a short trip through the Temple of King Ra'Bak and a face-off against the colossal Temple Guardian boss! <3

As you can hear by the sound effects present in our Teaser, Power Up Audio (of Crypt of the Necrodancer and Towerfall: Ascension) have done an incredible job for us! You can find them at

Music by Chris Christodoulou (of Risk of Rain) :


Wanderlust Adventures is now nearing Beta! We hope to meet an Early 2015 PC/Steam launch deadline, so the coming months of work/debugging will be crucial for us. During the Beta, we will be inviting a small number of fans (and Twitch streamers) to help us 'work out the kinks', in order to polish the experience into virtual perfection. Also, during this time we will be adding some more event/quest content into the game ~ to take advantage of the procedural generation we've implemented into the engine.

This should be fun!

Hey! Nice to see a comment, we don't update this page as often as we do our reflect page (because of the whole new authentication required on this site), but I just wanted to let you know that it is very possible that you will see a release by June this year!

Thanks for the support!

Rated everything + to cancel out the person who rated everything -.

Great to see a hell of a lot more chapters, would definitely be worth cash. I think a 4 v 4 deathmatch would also be a pretty cool thing to have and would add a competitive side to it.

I had stumbled onto the demo many months ago and thoroughly enjoyed playing this wonderful game. I could go on for quite a while, but I'll attempt to keep this as short as possible.

You can see the extensive features listed above, but the best thing this game offers, I feel, is the amount of user skill required to play effectively. All classes (please note you also have free reign over skill builds per class- resets come at no cost)have a distinct feel and must be played with different mindsets. However, everyone who plays regardless of style or class, must always remain cognizant of what exactly the enemies are doing and the best ways to avoid damage while clearing the screen. It sounds very simple in theory, but games have gotten away from this for a long time now, and it's extremely refreshing to see one come back to it.

I could get into specifics (item, boss, skill, and story systems to name a few), but I -strongly- recommend downloading the demo, familiarizing yourself with the extremely short pdf manual it comes with, and experiencing this very well polished 'old-school' action rpg for yourself. Hopefully, you can convince some friends to join you as the co-op is where this game really shines.

I would like to ask a few questions about the final release myself though.
-How will networking be handled? As of now, using reflect games, it requires all character data to remain client side, will this change? Also, will there be permanent dedicated servers?
-Will trading be implemented? The corollary being, will player shops/stalls be possible?

Thank you very much d2king10, you were amazingly kind and helpful when I ran into you last night; especially when you shared the location of the secret boss :). I wish you and your small team the best; and if this game does come with a price tag, it's more than worth it considering the astounding quality.

Thank you for your kind words, we have tried hard to make Wanderlust a game that not only we enjoy, but the players will too. It was our focus from the beginning to make a coop game that required player skill and team work over everything else.

K, now to answer some of your questions:

-How will networking be handled? As of now, using reflect games, it requires all character data to remain client side, will this change?
Also, will there be permanent dedicated servers?

*As it is now, reflect is a service ran by someone else (Marty), so any additional features we want added to reflect (like character hosting and permanent dedicated servers), have to be ran through him and he has to code them. Ideally, we would love it if we could have everything stored on reflect (and maybe this will happen one day), but permanent dedicated servers would be a bit more challenging because of money issues (having to buy and run the server). At the moment, anyone can run a dedicated server if they successfully host one game, we did this to prevent players who don't have their ports forwarded from hosting dedicated games.

-Will trading be implemented? The corollary being, will player shops/stalls be possible?

*We have a pretty awesome idea for a player "trading" system, but I don't think it will make it into Wanderlust. One being, that with a trading system, hackers have a way bigger impact on other players experience, because as of right now if a hacker was hacking his game, it would mostly affect his own character and no body elses, but implement a trading system, and then orange and purple items are seen everywhere.

Wanderlust is getting close to a full game release, but if the game gets popular enough, we would, without a doubt, make additional features and support for the game (possibly a sweet trading system, additional chapters, holiday themed chapters, additional game modes, etc)

Thanks again for trying the game out, tell all your friends ;)

Seems fun! I've downloaded the demo and also the .exe and resource file, but every time I try to start it, it freezes. What's wrong? Btw, I use Vista, so it shouldn't be any trouble according to the readme?

Are you running it from the start.exe? Have you tried waiting to see if it isn't just loading the files? It could be a number of things, try deleting the resource file/exe and re-downloading it from the start.exe file. Let me know if any of these fixed it, otherwise I will message Matt, the programmer, and ask him about it.

This game is pretty amazing and not something seen too often nowadays. It's pretty hard and throws you right into the action, but it's still completely possible. The pass/fail system on normal difficulty really allows you to better yourself for next time in order to get that 100% to truly advance to the next level. The game play itself is smooth and there's hardly a dull moment. The ending of normal difficulty is fantastic, made me want to play through again on epic. Epic difficulty itself is a…
