What the developers say:

“War for the Overworld is currently in a period that we call the “Bedrock Beta” which is exactly as it sounds: the bedrock of the game. We will constantly update the Bedrock Beta with new features, mechanics, content (and bug fixes) until it eventually evolves into the final game!

Once we move into full release, we will probably increase the price. Please provide us positive and negative feedback as we work to develop War For The Overworld. For more information on the Bedrock beta, please visit our beta website!
