Beacon is a rogue lite ready to leave anticipated access next month

The monotheistic developer announced that their red-lite entitled Beacon will leave early access and will celebrate a full launch on December 15.

This is what Joe Russell, co-founder and writer at Monotheistic, had to say during the launch:

We worked on Beacon in one form or another for most of our professional life, and, frankly, see this final step happen, it’s a bit like looking at the emptiness of death. At least, in this case, other people can play a game that, in our opinion, went pretty well. It has one thing where you can turn a little into a rotating cosmic octopus. It’s probably better than death, I think.

I am okay. Transforming into a rotating octopus is better than death. Better than a lot, really.

I am always happy to see a game of quality exit at anticipated access. I have not yet had the chance to play Beacon, but I heard good.
