Curious? Skeptical? >>> Read reactions from current players! <<<


If you're interested but insist on buying from Steam, provide your email and we'll notify you when that happens! (Some time in 2017; note Cogmind made it through Greenlight in March) This is different from the newsletter--only one email will ever be sent!


Know that Cogmind is currently in beta development, and is therefore not finalized, but is already a very complete experience, and fun!

It could be called 1.0 at this point if you want to compare its polish and content to other early access games, but why stop now if "great" can become "epic"?
For an in-depth overview of Cogmind, see these three pages: 1, 2, 3. Or the abridged version here on Reddit.
See the Innovations page for how Cogmind is pushing the genre forward.
Progress is regularly reported on the forums and via the visual roadmap. (Check out the release history here.)
For an idea of what goes into developing Cogmind, see the latest annual review.
You can also learn more via my interview on Roguelike Radio (a podcast), or my talk at the Roguelike Celebration.

System requirements:

  • OS: Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8 / 10 (we have many players using Linux/OSX without issue, but not natively)
  • CPU: Intel Core2 Duo E6300 @ 1.86GHz / AMD Athlon II Dual-Core M320
  • RAM: 500 MB
  • Video Card: N/A
  • Disk Space: 25 MB
  • Minimum resolution: 1272x720 (Tiles), 800x600 (ASCII) (preview how Cogmind will look on your screen of choice here!)

*CPU is the most limiting factor, and while Cogmind will run on much slower machines, actions may not play out as smoothly. With anything from the last 8 years or so you shouldn't notice any slowdown. Required RAM is the likely maximum for the game itself, excluding that required by your operating system and other background programs you use at the same time.


Final prices may vary by region due to taxes, choosing an option will show the actual price before you buy! (Listed prices do include VAT in EU countries; however, other customers outside the U.S. may be subject to VAT imposed by your local government--the extra cost goes to your government, not Grid Sage Games!)

To learn why Cogmind is not very cheap, I've written lots of words on pricing here.

Also, due to strong demand the in-game item attribution reward and Advanced Tier are sold out and no longer available.
Other 2015-2016 perk tiers have also been permanently removed as Cogmind is mostly complete and we're officially out of alpha!
