Od twórców:

Dlaczego wczesny dostęp?

“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 monthly 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 your 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.”

Ile mniej więcej czasu trwa faza Wczesnego dostępu?

“Folk Tale is expected to be complete at some point during 2016. That said, we love Folk Tale, and we may make it a living game that continues to evolve beyond what we had planned.”

Czym różni się zaplanowana pełna wersja od tej z Wczesnego Dostępu?

“To date, we've prioritized the village building, economy and RTS aspects of the game, and building all the tools that we need to create worlds. That is nearing completion, and much of the team have now moved over to working on the RPG adventuring side of the game. That work involves the addition of storyline, questing, exploration, heroes, factions, and special abilities.

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

Jaki jest obecny stan wersji z Wczesnego Dostępu?

“The village building, economy and RTS aspects are maturing rapidly and provide plenty of challenge with three different maps (Grassland, Swamp and Snow) with varying degrees of difficulty. Editor tools are available for map creation - you can play your own maps and share them with the community in the forums - with plenty of kits and pieces available for world building. The amount of gameplay available is too broad to define, ranging from a few hours at one end of the spectrum, up to those with in excess of 1,000 hours.

For a good look at the current state of Folk Tale, please watch a recent Dev Hangout stream.”

Czy cena gry ulegnie zmianie podczas i po Wczesnym Dostępie?

“Yes. Our price plan was announced when we first launched in Early Access, and the RRP price has already risen once. It will rise once more shortly before launch.”

Jak zamierzacie włączyć społeczność w wasz proces tworzenia?

“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. We also run a weekly or bi-monthly Dev Hangouts live streams where the community can join us to share ideas and follow progress while we play the latest dev builds. And then there are the monthly dev blogs.”

Experimental Build (0.3.3.3)

ALPHA 23c (0.3.3.3)

This is a update to the experimental opt-in build. Following a period of community testing, it will be rolled out to the public alpha.

The primary change is the way we now load assets for faster map loading, and the addition of quest givers.

Where can I get it?

RPG gameplay, a new camera system, cutscene creation tools, and a host of new monsters

Camera System: Orbit And Follow

It's been discussed for a while in the forums, and in Alpha 23 we've overhauled the camera system to orbit around a central point. This is especially important when adventuring with a hero party, where the new camera will follow a selected hero in the center of the screen when in adventuring in dungeons. Hopefully you'll find it more intuitive, and consistent with other games in both RPG and Citybuilding genres. Following community feedback, we've removed hero following when in village maps as the need for free movement is paramount.

Hero System

Our focus for now is firmly on RPG gameplay because it impacts a number of tasks in the coming months. The addition of the hero party UI in the top left of the screen will be instantly familiar to RPG players. Clicking a hero portrait will select that hero, causing the camera to pan to place them in the middle of the screen, and continue to follow them. Placeholder icons to the right of the portraits will soon be replaced with both positive and negative buffs.



Below the portraits are toggle buttons for selection mode and follow. In single hero selection mode, you're commanding that hero alone. Other party members will use their AI to react to what your selected hero is doing. With party selection, you're commanding all four heroes at once. The follow toggle determines whether non-selected heroes will follow your lead hero, or stand still. This is important when working with a thief where you want to scout ahead.

Editor Enhancement: Cutscene Camera

In order to deliver an engaging RPG experience, we first need to enhance the content creation tools. Today, we're adding cutscene creation nodes to Workbench, our visual scripting engine, and camera path tools for creating camera motion. Level designers now have directoral control over how NPC interactions are presented, right from within the Editor.







Editor Enhancement: Quest Givers

Prior to triggering a cutscene, it's likely you'll want to mark an NPC as a quest giver so that a yellow exclamation mark appears over their heads. When used in conjunction with a trigger, the AddQuestGiver node will show the marker, while the RemoveQuestGiver node will, unsurprisingly, hide it.

In time we need to work out a system for interacting with moving NPCs, but for now the first pass implementation is very usable.

Somewhat related, we've modified the Conversation node so that level designers can now optionally specify the character who's portrait should be displayed, an animation to be played (more info on this will follow at a later date), and any loot items to be displayed for example as quest rewards.



Editor Enhancement: Prefabs

Productivity in content creation is important, with many of the Editor enhancements focusing on improving the speed at which new levels can be created. A few months ago we added the terrain generation tool for exterior locations, and marquee selection for quickly selecting multiple objects. This month we're rolling out the prefabs system. A prefab is a combination of props, such as a statue on a mount with a camera collider, or a locked door with a trigger and Workbench script attached. To create one, select your pieces and hit H, naming your prefab. An entry will be created in the prefabs tab of the kit inspector. You can then use it like a normal kit piece, clicking it to insert into your map scene. Prefabs are saved to disk, and so survive across multiple editing sessions.



Editor Enhancement: Workbench Scripts On Objects

If you've used Workbench, our visual scripting tool, historically you've had to work on a single worksheet, and performance would start to drop with lots of nodes and wires on screen. In Alpha 23, scripts can now be attached to any object in the map by clicked the 'Add Script' button in the object's inspector window. A cog icon will be added to the object, and a new worksheet created.

Editor Enhancement: Visual Helpers Toggle

In complex maps, clutter in the form of colliders, triggers, and light icons can start to build up and hinder productivity. So we've added a new toggle button to the toolbar so you can show and hide them.

New Assets: Weapons

For a while now a small mountain of assets has been building up and marked as queued for implementation in the roadmap. Equipping weapons onto characters often resulted in the same placeholder weapon being displayed. We've now imported and configured all the outstanding weapons and stats.



New Assets: Characters

A host of new monsters have been added, and all characters now have base stats. Some have become a lot tougher, so we've introduced Willow The Healer. While she's not yet fully configured, her heal is functional and will help your hero party survive.

In time we'll add in monster special abilities (requires animation, particle fx and sound fx) but for now they provide some additional flavour.

A lot of characters now have reaction animations, including hit and dazed. Shocked, feared, and knockdown will come into play as we add in new heroes and abilities.



Experimental vs Public Build

In Alpha 22 we introduced the experimental build, an opt-in beta that active community members can join to help us test early release candidates. It's potentially less stable and more buggy than the public build, but it provides access to the very latest builds with the specific goal of routing out bugs before we publish an update to the main public build.

Some have asked why bother? Well, even though we're in Early Access and bugs are to be expected, the reality is that releasing buggy updates to the entire community can actually cause harm. Having the buffer of an experimental build means better quality stable updates for casual and new players; engages active community members in more of a testing role; and provides level designers with a chance to update their maps ready for the next public release. Everyone benefits.

"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

Notice

Folk Tale contains edgy humor that may be considered inappropriate for children or sensitive audiences. Folk Tale isn't a childrens game. We'd like to encourage parents to undertake due diligence before purchasing and fully understand what Early Access is by reading Steam's Early Access FAQ.

O tej grze

Folk Tale is a fantasy village builder RPG 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.

Rule with tyranny and oppression, or liberalism and justice. Play as a merciless expansionist hell-bent on destruction, or as a gold-hoarding mercantilist who'll sell their own grandmother for a handful of coin. With random events and a dynamic story, Folk Tale really is a game of endless possibilities..

I've been following this game for a long time. I agree with some reviewers that it is much too early in development for how long the game has been available, however, that is not a reason to rate the game such a low score. That has nothing to do with how the game performs or how well you like it if you actually play it. At least half of all scores I've seen was some variation of, "This game still isn't finished, 1/5".

I went ahead and bought this due to some good reviews from people who actually played the game, and I agree that it is a fun makeup. I like the idea of a sandbox-type game like Banished with an RPG element to change things up. Currently as of 8/7/15 there is only a few RPG elements implemented (such as the hero), but more are supposed to be implemented very soon.

The game has a clear road map to finish, and it looks very attainable. The graphics and sound are good so far, and the gameplay on harder settings have a sense of urgency to get things running ASAP before you get attacked by spiders/goblins/other beasties. I look forward to when this game is actually finished, as it should be as good as I originally thought a few years ago. This game is going in a good direction, IMO.

This game has so much potential! For those who don't really have the patience to spend time creating, the gameplay itself has come leaps and bounds since i began playing, with loads of replayability per map. But my main focus isn't on the way the game plays in an immediate sense, but where this game has the potential to go in the next year or so. With a large enough community, and with player-made campaigns and adventures being uploaded I would love to see this game flourish in the same way as Little Big Planet did, regarding the way the community was shaped. Having said that, this game IS early access and there are features that are incomplete at this point. Personally, no regrets. Patience is finally paying off with developers that take pride in what they're making, and are delivering on their promises.

I bought this game because I loved what it showed and I am impressed so far. It keeps impressing me with its wit and its mechanics. While some things still need to be implimented and improved since I bought it I have seen updates that have made it better. Early access is true but the game isn't like other titles where it is broken and buggy, it has yet to crash or freak out on me, it is more stable then some full games. I would reccomend it, if you like games like Tropico and Age of Empires or any RTS city builder then I would give this game a try. 8.5/10

Honestly, the game has some work to be done. But the devs talk all the time and respond to questions and concerns. It's a small team and they all do things outside of this so yes, it takes time. But what they have so far is very nice. Went from preset building areas, to build where ever you want!

Cool consept but very slow development.

Check back in a year and there might acually be enough content to be worth playing.


Update 9/8-15

There is much more to do ingame now. They have added many new features since I last played, and I'm looking forward to acually playing the game, and (hopefully) see more big updates soon.
