It's here! Arcen Games are proud to finally announce the launch of the first Starward Rogue expansion: AuGMENTED. Available now!


This is a bumper content pack for Starward Rogue featuring the following list of goodies:


* A new gold floor with unique challenges and rewards
* 4 new music tracks composed by Pablo Vega and The Overthinkers
* 3 new mechs: The Zephyr, The Paladin, and the Warhog
* 90+ new items
* 30+ new enemies
* 125+ new rooms
* 8 new room obstacles such as the pulse trap and the flamethrower turret
* 10+ challenge rooms (a new room type exclusive to the gold floors)
* 6 new minibosses
* 9 new bosses



We are also introducing Starward Rogue: Gold Edition which is a package deal featuring both the base game and AuGMENTED. Both AuGMENTED and the Gold Edition will also be on 10% discount until January 31.


It's been a lot of work, but AuGMENTED is something we're very proud of over at Arcen Games. Thanks, everybody. Hail to the Hydral! :)




We also wanted to make a special thanks to Windless Zephyr for inspiring the Zephyr mech, and also for providing us with so many episodes of your long-running Starward Rogue series! :)

Is the 10% discount live on steam?  My steam shows full price for both base game and expansion, FYI.   This is in reference to this part of the announcement:  We are also introducing Starward Rogue: Gold Edition which is a package deal featuring both the base game and AuGMENTED. Both AuGMENTED and the Gold Edition will also be on 10% discount until January 31.

It's not live yet for some reason. Everything looks like it's set up correctly, but there seems to be some kind of delay or glitch. Erik is in contact with Valve about it. Hopefully that should be resolved soon.

Just heard from Valve that it's a site wide thing. It shows no discount on things until you get it into your cart for checkout. Then it's fine! Blah.

Congratulations on release! Hopefully I'll be able to shake $7 out of my budget soon enough.

The death screen (where it turns red and slows down) should display "Blame Misery" in huge text.

Though maybe sometimes it should rotate and say "Blame Pepisolo", or "Blame Goldenwolf", etc ;)
