Following their successful participation in the Steam Next Fest back in February, developer ChillyRoom has announced that their new Roguelite 'Shadow of the Depth' will be launching into early access on Steam on April 23rd, 2024.

With 5 distinct and varied characters to play, navigate the ever-changing world around you and experiment with the immersive combat system which will challenge you to make use of all your abilities.

Check out Shadow of the Depth's release date announcement trailer below for some gameplay!

In Shadow of the Depth, you'll take control of either Arthur, Phyllis, Stephanie, Ginzo, or Arya. Each with their own unique abilities and playstyles for you to master. Over 140 different passive abilities can lead you to create interesting and unique combinations with your character.

Not only that, but each time you play, the levels are randomly generated, this, coupled with the 5 characters and a large amount of passive abilities, means no two playthroughs will be the same, requiring you to stay on your toes if you want to keep alive. Explore this gorgeous, but deadly hand-painted world at your peril!

Shadow of the Depth will be available on Steam in early access starting from April 23rd. It has full controller support and system requirements that the Steam Deck should easily handle, so the game should run well on the Steam Deck, barring any issues with Proton/Linux compatibility.
