What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is nearly 70% percent finished, but still missing some key elements, especially the English version thanks to a large number of our contents(Yeah, we struggled with it for years), plus some images and storylines might change drastically during this period, so we decide to go EA instead of the full release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Well...I know we have been doing this for years, and we will try our best to finish it as soon as possible.”

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

1. Potential new factions and characters(yeah, more content!)
2. Storyline revision
3. Special Chapters
4. Translation for other Languages other than Chinese

1. Multiplayer
2. Alternative Artstyle for characters
3. Extra Things to collect

1. Savefile might be lost due to refactoring the saving system
2. Some fundamental mechanisms might be changed or removed during the development”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have 9 playable factions with their own campaigns so far and might add more in the near future.

We are currently focused on the translation of our old content first, plus refactoring some old scripts to make them more flexible for development, which usually takes a month or two to do so.”

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

“Might be, depending on how many new contents were added, but we will try to keep it affordable for the majority.”

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

“We usually release our development blogs on our Facebook page, and since we have a Twitter account now, we will post our progress there as well.
Dev blogs usually will be released on Saturday(GMT+8).

Another way to give us feedback is through the discord group, and some characters are based on our community's ideas.

We might plan to open a page on itch.io as well, once the English version is done.”

About This Game

"Church Era" is a fast-paced worker-placement strategy game set in a medieval fantasy land Tigris.
The gameplay includes elements such as worker placement, construction, card mechanics, and regional control.

The rule is simple: Place your units to fulfill an area's requirement to acquire it and gain scores called "Faith". You can control an area through Preaching(neutral areas) or Attacking(areas controlled by the opponent).

A regular battle takes around 12 turns. At the end of the last round, the player with the most Faith Points wins(A tie will be counted as losing).
Or, if you prefer to eliminate your enemy entirely, you can destroy their base and claim your triumph.

Discover interesting combos between heroes and factions' special abilities and the power behind miracle cards, which lead you to your glory and expand your collection.

The story began with the founder of The Raniki Empire, Raniki I, who tried to overthrow the local church but learned his lesson the hard way. Many years later, a great empire was established and lasted for hundreds of years.

But can it last forever? What might happen later on? And what might happen in other regions?
As a strategist and historian, hired by the Greenwood family, you are eager to know the answer to your sandbox scenarios.
And maybe help Aili, the sister of Mary, the leader of the Greenwood family, to organize the Encyclopedia of Flowers and Plants along your journey.

Are you ready to give this medieval adventure a try? Let's go!
