What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“It is a game with a lot of moving parts and balancing is key in a game like Acaratus. We need the players help to do real testing and giving us feedback in multiplayer/skirmish. We want to make this game one of the better turn-based tactics games out there. The singleplayer campaign will be released as we work on it during early access”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It depends on the development and player feedback, but we are targeting to finish up the campaign, balancing and additional assets within 12 months.”

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

“Some of this will depend of course on the feedback and data we get from Early Access.
That being said we are planning on adding the full single player campaign with the 3 acts with additional battle levels, random side quests, attachments and cards.

Additionally we are continuing work on our balancing and unit customization in order to bring more fun unit creations to the players.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version is still very early beta, what that means that features are in but not perfect so dont expect a finished game. It will include a multiplayer and skirmish mode (bot fight) and a tutorial with a sample of the singleplayer campaign in it to start with. We are still tweaking the features, adding new levels and additional attachments for units and we would be really happy to get the community involved and help shape this to something awesome!”

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

“Price will be lower than the early access version.”

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

“Community is important for us. We are going to be heavily involved in the steam discussion forums. We will host some streams on our official twitch channel and have latest news through steam, twitter and facebook.”

Patchnotes 1.0.0 preview

I do not know where to start on this since there have been so many major changes compared to 0.9.3

I can start by saying that the end boss is not included and multiplayer is still disabled but a lot of new content has been added to the campaign.

CAMPAIGN

  • Act 3 added together with changes for all acts.

  • Enemy encounters now have fixed values and only the harder difficulties have slight increases of enemy spawns each week.

  • A complete re balance of all enemy encounters.

  • Added a composition system with a set of fixed units that we randomly add to the world for each encounter, this makes the encounters less random but we can have some interesting combinations of units.

  • Almost all the maps have been edited in some way or another and a lot of new ones added.

  • A lot of new story nodes added with improved dialogues and more special fights.

  • New unique items added a long with some new traits.

GENERAL
  • More items rewarded to commanders in skirmish mode, create a new one to get them.

  • Tons of issues have been fixed, but there are still some more that needs to be fixed.

More news and updates will come shortly.
