What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Light Apprentice is a unique experience in which you play a comic book, and we would like it to play really nicely on desktop. The game is entirely playable now, but we would like to do some improvements on usability, UI, balancing, bug fixing etc. We'd like to use your feedback to provide you a polished experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate something between 3-6 months, but it may be sooner.”

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

“The final version will have improvements based on the players' feedback. I'd prefer to surprise you with new features rather then promising and not being able to deliver, because sometimes I can change my mind halfway or circumstances change and make the feature impossible to be implemented. So please, if you have a request or suggestion, I'd really love to hear from you in the forums. The time is now while the game is in Early Access.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“A completely playable build with full controller support and HD graphics.”

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

“Price may change when we leave Early Access.”

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

“We would like to deliver the best content possible to our audience. We would like to summon players to leave us feedback in the form of reviews or in the forums, as we'll do our best to address any issues or implement any possible improvements.”

Update #2 - Graphics update, Quests map and bug fixes

The second update just went live on Steam, taking Light Apprentice to the next level, preparing it for the launch and setting the grounds for Volume 2.


The first thing that pops to the eyes is the new Quests map. Now you can navigate through the world and play around on your favorite locations of Ethenia.

Nate will be there to guide you, or rather to be thrown around by you! Try it out and let us know what you think.

Here are some pics of the development of this feature -- Nate at his best.


We also squished so many bugs! Thank you everyone who contributed with suggestions and pointing them out. We love Early Access for that. And with your help, we want to squish the last ones before the final release. It’s very important that you help us at this stage, so please write us on the forums or privately if you find anything.


The graphics were improved in basically every scene and Quest since the first launch on Early Access and the game starts to differ quite a bit from its mobile version now, so you should really check it out if you haven’t. You’ll probably have a much different impression!


This week we had this lovely fanart by srinya, thank you so much! It's cute and gave us a good laugh!


Don’t forget to leave us a review and a comment on Steam, it’s really really helpful for us! And of course, please help spread the word about Light Apprentice to your loved ones.

Have a great week, everyone!

Update #1 + Steam cards

Hi, everyone!
Here's the first update of Light Apprentice!

Update notes
- Fixed the bug in which your potions would not be saved after a challenge (battle)
- Rebalancing and new levels of difficulty: Normal and Hard (the previous only level has become the Easy one). We hope you'll enjoy each of them!
- Mouse wheel/up on controller to scroll up, in case you missed any immediate comic part(s)
- Adventure mode cursor easier to navigate with controller
- Sometimes he game would break later on your second save. Not anymore
- Various bug fixes and graphic improvements in chapters 2, 3 and 4

Early Access
We like Early Access because it allows us to develop with the community. Thanks to you, we were able to i.e. identify the biggest bug on the list (potions not being saved if you die in a challenge), and I hope it will make it better for you. We also made the Quests button more obvious, so you'll hopefully click there and understand that's where you can get more potions if you run out of them. There was much more fixed, but I'm trying to keep it short :)

We hear you, but...
With that being said, I have heard a few of you and feel obliged to tell you that there is still no auto save or save wherever you want feature, and there probably won't be one. The current save system is a design choice, and until we are able to change the core system of the game (it would take a lot of time and resources and would extrapolate out budget and time frame), it can't be changed. But we can insert more checkpoints if it would make it better. We would like to hear what you think on this, so we know how to best address the problem (and if it really is a problem, most importantly).

Regardless, I'd like to say a big thank you to the community for the support so far, with your fanarts, your screenshots, comments, and specially for sharing it with your friends. Light Apprentice is a love project and it has come a long way, and we surely appreciate you for welcoming the game on Steam so warmly.

Steam cards

They're here! From now on you can access Light Apprentice Steam Cards, Backgrounds, Badges and Emoticons, all in one single swoop. Bear in mind that the cards were voted by you, the community, so they are the most awesome they could be.

We have been busy with some really cool stuff, and we can't wait to show them to you. I'm making a devlog post for that. For now, the best way to keep up to date is to follow us on:

@iggynore - follow the creator and get to know when he's streaming some behing the scenes content
@lightapprentice - the more official account, with updates about the game and news
Hit us up!
Facebook: mainly funny and commemorative pictures, sporadic updates

Once again, thank you all and we hope you enjoy this update! Please don't hesitate to tell us if you find any bugs or anything too weird in the game. With your help, Light Apprentice will be a great game the whole world will be able to play!
