What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We think that releasing the game early to the community will help us have a much better full release. Our idea is to continue balancing, adding content and polishing the game with the community's help as much as we can in order to make the best game possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game should be completely finished at some point before the second half of 2017.”

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

“The final version will be better balanced, more polished and have a lot more content. Including a brand new hero, the hunter, with his three own specializations and lots of new equipment to unlock in both the old dungeons and the new one.The new Enchanted Forest dungeon will contain 13 new rooms, all with new items to unlock; raising the amount of available items for each class to 36!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is in a nearly finished state in terms of stability and has a lot of content, enough for more than 40 hours of gameplay.”

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

“We will price it differently in a way that reflects the difference in quality and content. We are however not sure of the final price yet.”

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

“We plan on getting as much feedback from the community as we can. This will help us fine tune the balance of the game and fix any bugs that would otherwise have escaped us. We are also open to suggestions for new ideas!”

Weekly Announcement!

Hi All!

I'm afraid there's no new version this week. We have been working mostly on the new dungeon and there really weren't enough new visible things to justify a version. Instead I've decided to show you some pics and tell you about the stuff we've been working on.

The forest is getting better and more bosses and enemies are being added every week. This new dungeon will have you hunting a powerful and rare beast as you explore a huge enchanted forest. Inside you'll fight against different types of beasts (boars, werewolves, worgs, unique monsters), many faery creatures (treants, sprites, pixies, animated plants), a tribe of forest trolls, the ghosts of a haunted castle and many other things.

Now, to the interesting stuff.
Here's a list of just a few of the new upcoming items:

- Mirror Scrolls: Arcane scrolls that create mirror images and use them to dodge attacks.
- Mist Scrolls: Pyromancy scrolls that make enemies unaware and cool your fire magic down.
- Book of the Dead: A grimoire that lets you raise and control an army of revenants.

- Bag of Tricks: A secondary item that comes with caltrops, bombs, and dust to blind enemies.
- Wolf Claw: A light weapon that is great for chaining attacks and has an unique mechanic.
- Faery Mask: A mask that let's you see those who are invisible and predict their movements.

- Javelins: A light ranged primary weapon that deals extra damage to distant enemies. (makes the old javelin bag item obsolete)
- Oaken Shield: A faeric shield that repairs itself and has a few tricks of its own.
- Hatchet: A secondary weapon for dual wielding fighters.

- Hunting Quiver: Full of poisonous and paralyzing arrows to weaken your enemies for the final shot.
- Faery Companion: An ally that will help you manage your fey magic and deal with your enemies.
- Faery Bow: A magic bow whose arrows only exist in the faery realm.

That is all for now. Have a good week!

“I did rather enjoy [Card Quest]...[the] art style [...] felt right.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“Even in Early Access, Card Quest is worth playing pending you dig single player card games, or just RPG questing. If you’re not into card games, this could very well be the gateway drug you’re looking for.”
Steam Shovelers
