BorderStrain is an 2D ARPG which is developed as a solo indie project. After multiple years in development it has now stepped into Steam Early Access.
BorderStrain is based on a custom game-engine developed in C++ and integrated Steam functionality such as LeaderBoards and Play With Friends.
The game will continue to develop whilst in Early Access and any initial revenue generated will go directly into improving game assets, graphics and features. Due to the limited development budget available we aim to make sure any support given by the player community is returned in form of improved gameplay and finish.
