Heroes, prepare your steel for newfound powers: crafting comes to the turn-based tactical RPG and dungeon crawler looter Stolen Realm! Indie studio Burst2Flames announces the release of a new major content update for Stolen Ream, which overhauls the crafting and profession systems, along with adding many quality of life improvements and bug fixes.

The main focus of this update, available today, is a brand new Crafting system that allows you to infuse your weapons with new powers with materials found by fishing, mining and gathering. This system is based on prefix and suffix modifiers: for instance, a Hallowed Longbow of the Titan would give your arrows the highest bonus damage possible, as well as increasing the power of your heals. And that’s not all – you can also now craft Potions at the consumable shops, adding a new layer of exploration and gathering materials during your adventures.
This is all tied with another addition of the latest patch: the new Gathering and Fishing profession nodes, both featuring their own minigames, with which you can get the materials needed for your crafting. These new systems will be an integral part of the game from now on, allowing for full customization of the player characters and taking one step in allowing you to minmax your gear for higher difficulty levels. 
While these two are major additions to the game, this patch also brings forth a bunch of bug fixes and general balance changes such as changes to the drop chance of legendary and mythic gear; the full patch notes can be found here.
Review keys are available, ask us for yours!


Stolen Realm is a mix of turn-based tactical RPG and dungeon crawler looter, where you lead a party of up to 6 heroes in single-player or online coop adventures in a low-poly, high-fantasy world. Wield your weapon of choice, unique skills, and powerful magic as a fighter, thief, ranger or wizard – or create a completely custom character to fit your playstyle, increasing your stats and choosing skills as you level up and loot powerful gear in your adventures. Pick your path between battles, deciding between story events, resource gathering, shops, fights, and treasure rooms, until you get to the final boss of each individual adventure. 

Maybe you prefer being a Shadow Knight, or a spell-slinging assassin? With the game’s multiple systems and flexible customization options you can choose to invest into a single tree or pick and mix between the 8 skill trees to your heart’s content. Utilize a wide array of weaponry from mythical maces to cursed swords that grant you more power at the cost of your own lifeblood.

Decide your strategy considering all the tactical tools at your disposal. Take advantage of your powers and skillset to divide and smash your enemies with brute force, or perhaps sneak through enemy lines to deliver the fatal backstab as you take on your enemies. Put your strategic skills to the test in a fast-paced simultaneous team turn-based combat where every decision matters – either alone, or along with your friends in online co-op dungeon-crawling adventures! 

  • Play solo or with friends in up to 6 player online co-op, allowing you and your friends to wreak havoc amongst your foes
  • Experience thrilling and fast-paced turn-based battles thanks to a simultaneous team turn system
  • Use over 240 skills in 8 distinct skill trees allowing for complete and flexible character customization
  • Navigate hex-based battlefields where positioning is key, due to battle shrines with special effects, exploding barrels and movable crates
  • Find and loot over 500 unique items, fully customizable with modifiers, as you explore a wonderful world full of magic, secrets and unexpected dangers
  • Fight against over 200 types of enemies in battles that will be different every time: thanks to the Enemy Modifications feature, every creature you face on the battlefield will be unique
  • Explore the world to find rewards and treasures… but also more enemies!
  • Pick your path between battles, choosing where to go between story events, resource gathering, shops, fights, and treasure rooms until you get to the final boss of each adventure
  • Adapt the game to your skills: per-character scaling (you can play with 1 or up to 6 heroes) and 5 different difficulty levels
  • Choose between Normal Mode and Hardcore Mode with permadeath if you want a real challenge!
