Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're looking for final feedback on the quests and gameplay. We want to see what players beyond our current small test pool feel is too difficult, too easy, does and doesn't work in the story, etc.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Early Access is planned to last about 8 weeks. You can take an early look at the game now and help us out by giving us your tips and feedback, or you can wait for the final release, or both!”

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

“The last few chapters will initially be unavailable in Early Access. The final chapters will be added during Early Access in approximately bi-weekly updates. The final chapter will NOT be added to Early Access and will only be available in the release version of the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version is currently playable and very stable. The look and feel of the game are very close to what you can expect for the final release. All but a handful of features are in. Head to the website and view some of the videos in our streamer showcase to get an idea of how the game currently looks and plays!”

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

“We're trying to set it up so that Early Access customers get the "Deluxe" version of the game with the sound track and web comic for the price of the "Standard" version. After Early Access, the "Deluxe" version will cost more.”

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

“The best way to reach us is on the Steam discussion forums or on our Twitter or Facebook pages. The best way to help us out is to post your Let's Play videos with your ideas and commentary on Youtube. We've watched them all so far, literally hundreds! If you do a live stream, let us know ahead of time on Twitter and we'll most likely be there!”

Welcome to the Jungle!

The Forgotten Jungle is now live!

You can finally use the Scroll of Disenchantment to open the old sealed path to the Forgotten Jungle. I won't spoil all the surprises, but you better bring a lot of bug spray!

One of our favorite sidequests is in this area, and it's the "So Many Spiders" challenge!
You think you're good at killing things in Tanzia? Are you the very best, like no one ever was? Then find Ki'olda and give it a try!
We have online leaderboards for this quest, so you can challenge your friends, family and random strangers to it!
And if you want to brag about it, you can check the scores here:

So Many Spiders Online Leaderboards

CapitalVices is the man to beat! Let us know on Twitter if you managed to best him and we'll RT you to our almost 10k followers... You could be a star! XD

This area also features one of the only quests that can be finished using Diplomacy. Can you reach Grog, the leader of the Emuri Camp, without firing a single fireball? A wrong answer means certain death on this quest! (or at least a pretty tough fight). So choose wisely!

Bear Island is Live!

The boat to Bear Island is ready to sail! After completing the main quest at The Lagoon, head to The Docks and catch the boat!

If you visited Bear Island during the beta, it's changed a bit since then. The enemies have some new abilities that make them much tougher to deal with.

Also, don't get hit by the Corrupted Plant's ranged attack, trust me on this! Or at least make sure you didn't eat anything before! ; )

We've also fixed some bugs and implemented some suggestions from players, like the "Sell All" button.

Here's the full changelog:

-add sell all button.
