What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

PLEASE NOTE: THE EARLY ACCESS IS NOW CLOSED AS WE PREPARE FOR FULL RELEASE.

We first brought Games of Glory to the Steam early access community in May of last year. It was a great experience for us that allowed us to learn a lot about the strengths and weaknesses of the game we had spent two years developing.

Since then, we have taken into account all of the reviews and feedback that we have seen and have been working on a brand new version of the game that we hope to present to you soon! Lot's will have changed, you can read more about it in our most recent announcement.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The early access has now been closed as we prepare for full release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“[UPDATED JULY 2016] Coming soon you can expect to see a major overhaul that includes:
  • Major changes to the control scheme
  • All-new weapons system
  • Increased game speed
  • New characters
  • Graphical overhaul including
  • -- Upgraded to Unity 5 for much better graphics
  • -- Retexturing of all existing characters
  • -- Redesigned maps
  • -- All new user interface (ingame + out of game)


Please check out our full Update FAQ for more information!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game is and will be free to play. We believe current DLC packages are cheap and will likely be more expensive in the future.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Many of the changes we have made to game have been implementing community ideas. We are always happy to chat in the Steam forums or elsewhere (like by email -- get in touch at contact[at]lightbulbcrew.fr !).

We plan to continue to develop the game with the community at its core. A future game mode, for example, will give our players a direct impact on the future of the universe.”

Early Access Closing on Monday Nov. 7th to Prepare for Full Release to Come


Finally, we are in the homestretch of bugfixing and polishing as we prepare to release the new Games of Glory! Please be sure and subscribe for more updates!

Dear Steam community,

I have a quick announcement on behalf of the LBC team:

3 ½ years ago we started working on Games of Glory, with the idea to develop the game in close communication with prospective players. Through our alpha releases and event participations we found a community of players that believed in Games of Glory, just as much as we did. Blinded by the positive reactions at events, we rushed to release it as an early access title on Steam.

Our early access launch was an incredible learning experience, but we quickly realized that it was premature. Technical issues made the experience negative with a lot of players that seemed to be AFK, while they in fact wanted to play. Despite this we had decent reviews, and those that got through the issues were quite positive. We also received a lot of feedback, in-game, on Steam, in reviews, in forums etc. We made a list of EVERY piece of feedback and decided how to treat it. We also realized that we needed to improve overall quality significantly. We went back to the drawing board and redid the game, recreating many parts of the game from scratch.

Now finally we near the release of the new and improved Games of Glory. We want to deliver a great experience to all those that have tried out Games of Glory, and also get as many as possible as excited about the games as we are. First however, we need to take down the current Steam version as it is not at all representative of what the new version will be. It is the same reason why we have removed old images and forums and relaunched our website.

Please subscribe to follow us, and reach out to us with any comments or questions either here in the comments.

Finally, check out a few before-and-after sneak peeks:




Thank you!

Natco
