抢先体验有何好处?

“We decided to enter Early Access for one simple reason: The Community! Ultimately we´re creating video games for players and that´s why we would like to include the players and their feedback into the development process. We want to incorporate as much feedback as we possibly can, which, we know, is going to be a balance act. We need to maintain the essence and the direction of Shadows while at the same time incorporating as much feedback as we possibly can. We know that this is going to be a balance act – but we are very excited to take this approach!

You now have the unique chance to join the fast growing Heretic Kingdoms community and you can participate in the development with your feedback, ideas and thoughts. We actively moderate and follow the forums to listen to your feedback – both positive and negative – and we will carefully consider your ideas. This is a great opportunity to collaboratively make Shadows the best game it can possibly be!”

这款游戏的抢先体验时期将持续多久?

“We are currently planning to release Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms in 2014, which gives us several months to not only continue development, but to also adjust our game continuously.”

计划中的完整版本和抢先体验版本到底有多少不同?

“Over the course of the Early Access, we will offer several iterations of the game, each getting Shadows closer to the final version. The features that are listed below will therefore be released over the following months and not held back for the final version.

  • 1. Crafting
  • Crafting will allow the players to combine crafting components and broken down loot into new items. Additionally, the players will be able to improve already existing items. This feature is supposed to boost the regular gameplay and at the same time give the player another way of customizing his characters.
  • Full Voice-Over
    The Early Access version will be partially voiced at the beginning. As we progress through the development of Shadows, we will add additional voice-overs and possibly voice-overs in other languages.
  • More heroes with their own subplots and quests
    Currently we only offer 4 playable characters. As we progress through the Early Access we will introduce more and more characters and their stories. This will expand the quest pool considerably and therefore increase the overall game volume.
  • Additional skillsets and items
    Along with every additional character come his unique ability trees. Each hero has multiple skills based on different combat styles. Activating these will often require certain weapons, armor and items which will therefore be updated as well.
  • Almost 50 maps and locations
    We put a lot of work into the locations of Shadows. We want to deliver a detailed and immersive environment that invites the players to take a closer look and enjoy the scenery. We already provide great locations at the beginning of the Early Access, but more environments and sceneries will follow!
  • Editor and development tools
    Not only do we want to create a great game with a catching storyline and a beautiful environment, we would also like to give the players the opportunity to do the same. We plan on including an editor that will allow the creation and modification of dialogs, environment and sceneries.
  • More combat, more bosses, more quests and more skills!
    On top of everything that is planned, we will increase the content that is already offered at the beginning of the Early Access. We will offer two boss fights at the beginning of the Early Access and that will certainly increase significantly. We will add more enemies, more quests and more skills as well as more items. If you like what we are offering you in Early Access, you will love the final game!

抢先体验版本的现状如何?

“The game is in an early state - as possibly Early Access suggests. However, the game is stable, already very beautiful and filled with enough content for the players to experience the world of the Heretic Kingdoms.

Here´s a short summary of everything you will have access to with the first Early Access version:
1. The first chapter is fully playable with two main heroes
2. Partial Voice Over, spoken by famous actor Tom Baker
3. Several hours of the gameplay, with plenty of quests, side quests, items, skills
4. More than 10 locations and maps
5. Fierce combat and fights against the first bosses”

在抢先体验期间和结束之后,游戏价格会有所不同吗?

“The Early Access will offer the players a limited amount of gameplay, as the rest of the content is still in development and will successively be made available to the players. Therefore, the price of this early version will be lower than the final retail price. As the content grows, so will the price rise. Since the Early Access will begin with a 10% discount, it will be the lowest possible price to purchase the game from now on and after the Early Access.”

在开发过程中,你们是如何计划让玩家社区参与进来的?

“Since we have been working behind closed doors on the game, we are initially very interested in feedback on our work. As we continue to develop and get to know the community and their expectations and wishes, we will begin incorporating suitable suggestions. We have already received fan-art, lists of features and player favorites of other games which we use to adjust our development process.

We don’t want to limit ourselves to certain ways of participation. Whatever the player community comes up with, we will try to validate and incorporate in some way.”

很高兴赶上一款Early Access游戏的中文首评,这个号游戏时间比较短,因为是用小号开家庭共享玩的,不要在意这些细节。
这款游戏还是比较要创意的,可控角色可以在恶魔和傀儡之间切换(可控制多个傀儡),于是便有了两个不同的视角,就像一个世界的正负两面,生人的世界与鬼魂的世界。不同的视角角色能力不同,所处的环境不同,所遇到的怪物不同,可接到的任务不同。当在世界的阴面被敌人围攻,切换到阳面或许就可以溜之大吉,当在时间的阳面无路可走,切换到阴面或许就能柳暗花明。经常在不同的视角间切换,往往会发现新的东西。
游戏没有魔法值的设定,技能释放有CD但是不消耗能量。杀死敌人会得到灵魂之力,可用作回血和复活。
游戏中恶魔跟傀儡的结合出于相互利用,却又作为矛盾统一的整体相互影响,游戏里做了相应的暗示,这大概跟结局的走向有关。
游戏里有不少中国元素,佛像烛台,飞檐斗拱,音乐也会让中国玩家感到亲切。第一章到达索尔城,又是一股浓郁的西域风情。
缺点也是相当多的。
作为Early Access,进入游戏首先感受到的就是优化差,走路都是一卡一卡的。
其次就是打击感差,下载汉化的时候顺便在三大妈论坛溜了一圈,看到有人评论“说打击感差的是因为你没选战士”,于是我选了战士。至少在我看来,战士的打击感,只能说很牵强,我不禁想如果我选了猎人会怎样……
再次就是一些细节问题,还是有待修正的。比如机关,一般正常游戏的机关有开有闭,趁机关不启动的时候迅速通过貌似是基本的常识。但是这游戏的机关自带100%命中buff,也就是说只能硬抗。
体验内容只有第一章,我并没有完成全部的第一章内容。因为遇到无解bug,取篆刻钥匙的时候傀儡死亡又没有魂力复活,而前面的机关恶魔状态又无法通过,于是被卡住无法继续进行,后面应该就是最后的boss了。平行世界设定虽有创意,但是带来的bug与问题很多,作者还是需要下功夫多多完善。

PLEASE READ FULL REVIEW BEFORE JUST LOOKING AT MY RECOMMENDATION!

Honestly, from the little I've played of this so far, I'm thoroughly intrigued as to where the game will go. I can't say it's the most original feeling experience as it is basically a "Diablo clone" (as much as I hate to use that term), but it does enough of its own thing to warrant my time, I think. Besides, if you're going to go for a style of game play, you could do a whole hell of a lot worse than iterating on solid design to begin with.

PLEASE REMEMBER THIS IS AN EARLY ACCESS GAME! If you're wanting to try this game to see what it's about, maybe watch a YouTube video or something first as I can't recommend the game for $26.99 as is. That being said, if you're like me and are able to look past some major game flaws with an open mind while being a fan of the genre, this isn't the worst purchase on Steam.

As is, I would recommend having a decent rig for playing, since there are currently no options to "tune down" any of the graphic settings beside resolution to work well for lower end machines and even on my high-mid machine it chugs like a beast due to lack of optimization (that will surely come much later). I streamed my first impressions of the game and I feel like that was a mistake and may have made the game look much more choppy than it actually was, but I feel like the most I got at any point in time playing was 25-30fps. It isn't unplayable, but added to the sluggish movement feel and kinda janky item pickup, some parts felt more arduous than they will when I can tweak the settings to make sure I get my full 60fps minimum.

TL;DR Don't be silly and think you'll get an objectively "good" product right now for the price, but there is enough in here to show glimpses of a future solid title.

P.S. Shameless video play plug and to the devs, I'm sorry my streaming made the game look like it performs worse than it actually does :-(

Overall, in just the short time I've had to play it, I would recommend this as a game. Yes, it is Early Acess (pre-alpha), combat feels a little slugish, same for picking up items, art work (for what ive seen) has been awesome, sound track has been engaging, need click+hold attacking. On the upside, switching between members is fun, seeing both the light/shadow sides and being able to level both seperate is a great thing to have. In its current state, I'd give it a 7/10, but I strongly believe it will only get better from here.

Heretic Kingdoms: Shadows
Early Access Gameplay

Played it for a bit but this game really surprised me. Kinda slow paced hack-and-slash which is refreshing after the Diablo's and Torchlights of this world. You also play as 2 characters, one Deamon and the character it has ressurected which is an interesting twist to the good old party system. Switching characters changes the surroundigs to an alternate world or the 'real' world, each with it's own enemies and physics. You can use your souls to ressurrect your character if it dies, which is quite fun mechanic. You lose health quite easily, and if you are near dead you hear your heartbeat go faster and faster until you die and are ressurected again. So dying isn't a big problem which is kinda cool.

Graphics are good, sound is excellent and animations are fine. Had a fun time until now, so I can recommend this game.

excellent Diablo type, but a lovely diabolical twist of having a Demon who can gain puppets, and change on the fly, to fight what you couldent see before. hit box off and on sometimes, same with hold and hit, but when I got to the end off Act 1 I wanted more, so started the ranger, and hope the full game is released soon. I see good possibilities with this one.
