Ravenswatch is a top-down roguelite action game that combines intense real-time combat with deep gameplay and high replay value.

Developed by the studio behind the widely acclaimed game Curse of the Dead GodsRavenswatch asks those who dare to confront the hordes of Nightmares, which are corrupting the world of Reverie.

Fallen heroes of old folk tales and legends: you are on the verge of a crucial battle against the Nightmare invading and corrupting your world.

Passtech returns with a new formula and game experience that can be played solo or with up to four players in co-op.


When it launches via Steam Early Access on April 6, 2023, Ravenswatch will feature these six playable characters. Only the first chapter will be available to play. The co-op roguelite will feature a total of 10 characters and three chapters when it launches in 2024.

Based on the tale of Little Red Riding Hood, Scarlet made short work of the Big Bad Wolf in Ravenswatch. Like all those suffering from lycanthropy, she transforms according to the day-night cycle, and her skill set changes depending on her form. During the day, she deftly wields two daggers; while night-time brings out her brutality and thirst for blood.

Franz is the Pied Piper of Hamelin. He uses his Nightmares-corrupted instrument to control a swarm of rats. Using his devastating melodies, he can weaken enemies from range while staying out of harm's way.

The famous Goth king Beowulf bonded with a baby dragon while trying to save his people from the Nightmares. Armed with a heavy two-handed sword, he can summon his flying companion to boost his attacks and block the enemy hordes.

Based on the famous Snow Queen fairytale, Nyss has lost her healing powers to the Nightmares. She uses her new killing powers to glide freely around the battlefield, slow enemies and riddle them with ice spikes.

Aladdin is the famous hero of One Thousand and One Nights. As his wife is trapped in the corrupted lamp, Aladdin takes up arms and confronts the Nightmares to lift the curse. He is an agile melee fighter who can grant a wish for wealth, life or death to override the outcome of a fight.

Inspired by siren legends, Melusine is infamous for having drowned many humans. Just when she falls in love with one of them, the Nightmares arrive. As she flees, she realises she is carrying the child of her lover and vows to do anything to save her baby. Wielding a devastating magic orb that can guide her wherever she wants, Melusine fights from range and can dive into the ground to escape enemies.

Key Features:

  • BANISH THE NIGHTMARE FROM YOUR REALM: The Nightmares are spreading within Reverie, corrupting everything in their path. You must hone your skills and find the strength to defeat the creatures of the Nightmare using unique hero abilities inspired by characters from folk tales and legends.
