What the developers have to say:

Dethroned! is still under development and somewhat rough around the edges here and there. However, we continue to improve the game on a regular basis with new features, content updates and bug fixes. You can help us! Play the game and tell us what you think! We will be making frequent balance and gameplay updates based on community feedback and suggestions.

Currently we have the core gameplay with a variety of heroes done. Other big features coming next (not necessarily in this order) are new heroes, new maps, a lightweight quest system and cosmetic add-ons for heroes (think hats!). In addition we will be polishing the game itself, creating new items and generally balancing things for a better game experience.

You can play Dethroned! right away for free. We also offer a special Early Access pack for a limited time that unlocks all current heroes plus all the paid future content, including all the heroes that we will ever add!”

To the players of Dethroned!

Despite our best efforts we couldn’t secure financing for continuing the development of Dethroned!

Because of this we’re in the process of removing the Supporter Pack DLC from the store. In addition all the payment options in the game itself will be made non-functional during the next few days.

We thank the community for the great support Dethroned! got during it’s run on Steam, especially everyone who gave to the development as customers, players and commentators.

Servers running the game will be kept up until money runs out.

Q&A

Q: Will there be any more updates, like heroes, to the game?
A: No, unless we get funding for that.

Q: How long will the servers be up?
A: Unknown, several weeks is an educated guess.

Q: What happens when the servers go down?
A: Bearded server guy is working on a dedicated server software so those who want can run the server themselves. Release date for this is unknown.

Q: Will there be an option to host a game inside the Dethroned! client itself?
A: Probably no, this would be a much larger undertaking than making a dedicated server software.

Q: Will the game be open sourced if there’s no funding for it?
A: Probably not, for a variety of reasons (like the usage of third-party toolkits).

Q: Is there an upside?
A: Well, if you want to be the best ever player of Dethroned! like, forever, now is your definite chance!

Game is incomplete and development has been discontinued since June 2014. Not sure why it's still allowed to be up under the Early Access label.

Early Access Review
Don't play it. Even for free. Even 5 minutes. Why? Let me tell you why.
First of all. Devs are thinking only about money from this game, they confirmed it here:
http://steamcommunity.com/games/269390/announcements/detail/1621609200223087905
"Q: Will there be any more updates, like heroes, to the game?
A: No, unless we get funding for that. "

They will not add anything to this game untill they will not earn money on it... It's most pure "♥♥♥♥ you!" said to the players and fans as it's possible. We all know - games must earn money to make them alive, but devs didn't released their game, just did only the outline of the game and are thinking only about $$$$$$$$$$$$$ from it. The game is not made ​​for the players, only to earn money on it and abandon it after a few months.
Second thing. You can't connect using Steam since weeks. They are ♥♥♥♥ing on this problem.
Q: How long will the servers be up?
A: Unknown, several weeks is an educated guess.

This game is made for a while. You know - one month, than it can be dead or kicked into trash bin. That's how devs are thinking about it. Do not let them be disappointed. Don't play it. Game will be dead faster than it's planed to be.
