Wat de ontwikkelaars zeggen:

Waarom vroegtijdige toegang?

“Folk Tale is an Early Access game, meaning that is has been released while in development for players to contribute feedback and help drive the final game. Bugs should be expected, and content - while very playable - is incomplete and still being worked on.

Folk Tale has an established track record of regular patches that include new mechanics, content, and bug fixes, and our community rate us as one of the most transparent and open developers in Early Access. If you want to invest your heart into a game and a team of developers who listens and more importantly responds, Folk Tale is for you.

We're in the Early Access program because community involvement matters. We believe it's the future of game development, and the best way to ensure we deliver a high quality bug free game that's fun to play.

For more information, please visit the Folk Tale Website.”

Hoelang blijft dit spel ongeveer in vroegtijdige toegang?

“Folk Tale will be completed in 2017.”

Hoe gaat de volledige versie verschillen van de versie met vroegtijdige toegang?

“More content mostly as we're rapidly becoming feature complete.

Please feel free to take a closer look at the Development Roadmap.”

Wat is de huidige staat van de versie met vroegtijdige toegang?

“The videos at the top of the store page are a good reflection of the state of the game and will be updated every few months. Most of the mechanics are implemented, and we're focused on rolling out more content and fixing bugs.”

Zal de game anders geprijsd worden tijdens en na vroegtijdige toegang?

“It's likely that the final price on completion will be higher.”

Hoe zijn jullie van plan de community te betrekken in het ontwikkelproces?

“We've been in Early Access long enough to build a reputation for dedication to community engagement. You'll find us discussing posts and answering questions in the community forums on a daily basis.”

21 oktober

Experimental (


The primary changes include partial language support for German and Russian, Act II from start to finish for the Grublins (first pass), the Toadkin boss and behemoth battles, a new dungeon and several new critters.

Where can I get it?
Experimental Build:

What's new?
Player: Act II Grublin storyline now playable in entirety as a first-pass
Player: Bla’tu (Toadkin leader) boss battle encounter
Player: Mighty Rhog (Toadkin Behemoth) boss battle encounter
UI: Some layout reformatted to better support translated labels
UI: Settings: Game: Language setting added with partial support for German and Russian*
Maps: Campaign: Sunken Depths added (accessible from Bla’tu’s Temple)
Maps: Campaign: Bountiful Bog: Dr Murp’s added
Maps: Campaign: Shirebrook: Crabs added to shoreline
Maps: Sandbox: Stinking Swamp: Kobold group near the kobold village now spawns less often
Editor: Workbench: Added Buff node to apply buffs to characters (needs json file lookup)
Editor: Workbench: Added CharacterScale node
Assets: Terrains: Swamp Ruins: Statue Trap - see notes
Assets: Characters: Mighty Rhog: Run removed, he was moving stupidly fast, abilities added
Assets: Characters: Grassland Animals: Added cave and gladiator crabs
Assets: Characters: Swamp Animals: Added scorpion
Assets: Characters: Grassland Animals: Added cave crab and gladiator crab
Assets: Characters: Piranha: Added environmental (non-attackable) hazard; needs some bug fixes
Assets: Characters: Toadkin: Blotch: Updated to use a warhammer
Assets: Props: Characters: Toadkin: Bla’tu Shield static character added for instantiation via Workbench
Assets: Systems: Systems: Added sparkles (used to highlight things of interest)
Assets: Loot: Added 9 trinkets (Gladefolk: Cocoon, Magic Mushrooms, Wood Imp Wing, Toadkin: Amber Insect, Obsidian Tusk, Toad Carving, Withering Dead: Bottled Eye, Ritual Urn, Wishbone)
Assets: Loot: Added 7 new keys (Cult Of Pyros Key, Dwarven Key, Glacian Key, Gladefolk Key, Grublin Key, Toadkin Key, Order Of The Fang Key)
Fix: Opening world map would clear world specific files which would trigger all json files to be reloaded, breaking a lot of things
Fix: Characters with Auto AI disabled will no longer engage with the enemy without being provoked or other allies are fighting nearby
Fix: Tweaked animation blending at end of an attack order to prevent units gliding
Fix: Effects on abilities sometimes lost the information about which ability was being used
Fix: Nara can no longer be attacked while in her cocoon
Fix: AI now queries for nearby targets directly instead of relying on the combat system to keep an up to date list (which it sometimes didn't, e.g when the character was of type CharacterStatic such as a destructible column)
Fix: Swamp Ruins Kit: some doors weren’t working properly
Fix: Added support for male/female variants of last names (required for language support)
Fix: Characters were being initialized completely in the editor which could prevent them from using up to date info (e.g health/names/etc.)
Fix: Inventory items are now loaded synchronously when a location loads instead of asynchronously as that could cause some lag when the loot system needed to be initialized
Fix: Added wider dialog header image to support longer character names due to translation
Fix: Prevented damage text greater than 4999 appearing, which only happens in code cheats

Known Issues
  • Lilith is overpowered
  • Borgle is underpowered
  • Any level designers that have used Bla’tu will need to re-insert him into their map

Developer Comments
* Partial language support has been added for German and Russian. It’s ‘partial’ because only labels that are unlikely to change have been translated. Quest text is subject to change, and has therefore not been translated. Both languages were selected because of their character sets. Special thanks go out to Nori for the German translation and Psytoshgen for Russian.

Both Bla’tu and Rhog battles make use of the new tagging system. Destructible Column 01 are tagged with ‘blatu_column’. As they are destroyed, falling debris will start landing on his magic shield. Statue Trap 01 are tagged with ‘blatu_statue’ and can be activated by Bla’tu’s magic to begin releasing fireballs. Finally, in the center of the room is a point tagged with ‘blatu_mortar’. This is used as the central point for when debris starts falling in the room, which the player must then avoid.

Rhog uses points tagged with ‘rhog_spawner’ to notify where whirlpools and piranha will spawn, and ‘rhog_scorpion’ where the scorpions emerge.

Experimental (


The primary changes focus on code optimization, bug fixes, and further development of the campaign. For CPU bound machines (usually PC’s with high end graphics cards) we’re seeing a significant frame rate boost in large-population villages. We’re also opening up the next campaign act, with an in-game warning that it’s only really for a look around, and not for playing. Currently only the Grublin faction storyline is being worked on.

Where can I get it?
Experimental Build:

What's new?
Player: Campaign Act II is now partly accessible
Player: Heroes: Borgle’s abilities fleshed out
Maps: Campaign: Bountiful Bog: Grublin campaign extended inc. further level design
Maps: Campaign: Bla’tu’s Palace: Grublin campaign extended
Maps: Campaign: Shirebrook: You can now travel to the Bountiful Bog via a road sign near the starting point
Maps: Campaign: Desecrated Cathedral: Sewing machines are now malfunctioning as per the story, and Brom’s machine fixing has been part implemented (still needs his animation importing)
Editor: Workbench: Added AllWithTag and FirstWithTag nodes
Editor: Mordrich can now teleport to points tagged with mordrich_teleport to avoid jumping out of a room
Assets: Audio: Added magic missile release sounds for all magic types
Assets: Audio: Added some missing inventory item move sounds
Assets: Props: Replaced Quarterstaff placeholder textures with final textures
Assets: Props: Bones: Added Skeleton Interactible for scripting in Workbench using WorkPointTrigger
Assets: Props: Human: Added Journal Interactible for scripting in Workbench using WorkPointTrigger
Assets: Dungeons: Mordrich’s Factory: Skeleton sewing points can now be scripted via Workbench
Assets: Terrains: Swamp Ruins: Added a destructible column
Assets: Inventory: Updated icons for quarterstaffs
Assets: Inventory: Added icons for runestones (not implemented yet)
Assets: Inventory: Updated icon for grublin claws (not implemented yet)
Optimization: Increased thread count on pathfinding to avoid it crashing; could cause workers to stop moving
Optimization: Moved tile handling code (inc. grass generation) to run after rendering has completed
Optimization: Improved fast filtering of objects
Optimization: Pathfinding distance check for buildings and resources is now non-blocking
Optimization: OrderWorkPoint was running the work point filter more times than necessary
Fix: Enemies would sometimes not start to attack the unit that was attacking them using a ranged attack
Fix: Line Of Sight code was breaking pathfinding, ranged units could shoot through doors
Fix: Line Of Sight was causing units to not move to attack if they had a valid path but no line of sight
Fix: Bugs in balancing code that made difficulty increase way too quickly
Fix: Centaur portrait image is now correct
Fix: Updated Gregory's bash range to reflect what the ui indicator was showing
Fix: Workbench: LoopSlow node now correctly emits the index property; good for timers
Fix: World Editor: World Kit is now showing correctly
Fix: Assets: Doors have been updated to prevent characters getting too close and breaking line of sight
Fix: Prevented workers from trying to work with resources that often cause orders to fail, spamming log
Fix: Fishing Hut navmesh needed adjusting
Fix: Monastery attack points weren’t working

Known Issues
  • When using the world map, if you click back into the location where you currently are, resources will become decoupled and show zero on the top bar.

Developer Comments
We’ve spent a fair bit of time optimizing the code for larger villages where performance was dropping. While population is uncapped, there is always going to be a point where this happens, but now it should happen a fair bit later.

"Folk Tale looks like a marvelously ambitious fantasy city-builder – featuring fully explorable building/dungeon interiors and an adventure-focused RPG component – with some admirably silly humor to boot."
Rock Paper Shotgun

"Folk Tale has some interesting ideas and a sense of humour."
PC Gamer

"Folk Tale is the game we always wanted...a sandbox citybuilder simulation with RPG elements blended in. Probably the best Greenlight game to date"
- Original Curators Group

Over dit spel

Folk Tale is a fantasy village builder ARPG game in which you lead a ragtag band of peasants in growing a thriving market town, while dastardly minions plot your downfall! Recruit heroes and head out into the wilds to fight back against evil. Or, you know, to get sweet sweet loot. Either or.

Players are comparing Folk Tale with Warcraft 3, The Settlers, Banished, The Guild 2, Majesty 2 and Black and White 2. Folk Tale is not a pure play role-playing game such as Pillars Of Eternity, and adopts more of a MOBA approach to hero abilities than a CRPG.

would i advice anyone to buy this game?

at this

with some further development progress......YES!
as of right now its more of a technical demo to show of the mechanics and style of the gameplay.

the in-build ability to modify game characters and models as you like is very cool indeed and the humor is there too

but as far as ive seen it still needs more depth
so give the dev team some time to give it some more TLC and it'll be an okay game

deze game kan ik met recht zeggen dat het een uitstekend idee is om te kopen als je van rpg en city building houd. zoals het al zegt is de game echt een mengel moes maar in mijn ogen is hij echt perfect als ze hem her en der nog updaten.

ik speel op de minimum specs en soms als je te veel ineenkeer aan het doen ben slaat hij wel eens af de game dan.
