What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We’ve learnt that when developing VR games, you have to gather feedback from the players as soon as possible. We want to make sure that all the solutions and features we provide are fun to play, add to the immersion and meet the players' expectations. We’re also open to players’ ideas and suggestions for future content updates.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We'll release the full version of The Wizards as soon as we implement all the planned content updates as well as improvements and new features based on players’ feedback. Early Access period shouldn't last longer than 5-6 months.”

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

“We plan to add following features:

  • Free movement - for more details please check out this post
  • New Regions - two exciting story chapters divided into stages, featuring new challenges and enemy types
  • Arcade Mode - endless arena battles on new maps for those who never get enough of spell fighting
  • Master Enchantments - six new powerfull spell upgrades for ultimate wizardry
  • New Fate Cards - additional set of game modifiers that let players experience completely new battles

We also want to implement content based on players’ ideas, be it new spells, new enemies, new challenges etc.

For more details please check this FAQ thread.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable and contains most of the planned mechanics and features, including:

  • Campaign mode with two Regions divided into stages + cutscenes, tutorial, shooting range and the Wizard’s tower.
  • Six basic spells with upgrades for each spell
  • Fate Cards that allow players to modify the rules of the game and gain more points
  • Online leaderboard that allows players to compete with high scores

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

“The final price may change slightly depending on amount of new content and features added during Early Access period.”

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

“Since players’ feedback and ideas are crucial to The Wizards development, we want to encourage them to communicate with us through:

The Wizards Community Hub on Steam
Survey for the players
Forum on the game’s official website
Dedicated Discord server with periodic Q&As with devs
