What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We've worked on Going Medieval for some time already and, while we feel that it's playable and fun (even in its current version), there are still advanced mechanics and systems missing for it to become a fully-rounded experience. By offering the game to a larger audience before its completion, we can receive essential feedback to help us balance out the experience and make the final game the best it can possibly be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“In order to create and refine the features that we have planned for the final version of Going Medieval, we anticipate it being in Early Access for at least a year.”

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

“We have a lot planned for Going Medieval during the Early Access period, and will be sharing a full roadmap of features that will be added to the game soon.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game has the following systems implemented: building and crafting, combat and defence mechanics, villager behaviour and personalities, resource management, flora and fauna simulation, and production systems.”

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

“The game will be fully rounded, with a lot more content by the time it is released. As such, there will be a slight increase in the price.”

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

“Player feedback is the most important reason why we are releasing our game in Early Access! Please join us on the Going Medieval Discord to let us know what you think of the game and help us shape it during development. You can also leave feedback on the Going Medieval Twitter page, or via the Steam Community hub right here.”

About This Game


In the world of Going Medieval, dark age society is on its knees. At the end of the 14th century, 95% of the global population has perished due to rampant plague.

Eventually, survivors emerge from society’s ashes, and it’s now up to you to help them settle in a dangerous new land reclaimed by nature. Build your people a home, help shape their lives, and protect them from animals, bandits, and other dangers in a lawless post-calamity age.


Design, build and expand your settlement from a small wooden hut into a colossal stone castle. With simple-to-use 3D terrain tools you can create the perfect stronghold, from winding underground caverns to sprawling multi-story forts.


This harsh new world is rife with external threats, but you can give your colonists the upper hand in battle by building impenetrable defences and traps. Research, craft and equip weapons and gear so that they can fight back against unrelenting waves of attackers.


Your colonists have more than just raids to contend with. They need protection from starvation and the elements, so it’s essential to stock up on supplies and build shelter to keep them fed and warm. Maintain your villagers’ emotional states, as their moods are affected if their needs and wants aren’t met.


Grow the population of your settlement by helping out strangers in dangerous situations, or by taking in like-minded travellers. Your villagers have personal histories and agendas, and you can get to know them by observing their behaviour and relationships with others.
