What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“PhilGood has been in development for more than 2 years and still is. 
But I feel it is now complete enough to make it available in early access and involve the community more in the rest of the development process.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I want to give myself enough time to listen to what the community wants from the game and to make sensible decisions. 
As I'm doing all the work alone with the help of my son for the lines of code, I expect the early access period to last at least 24 months.”

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

“The script covers 6 empires (6 ages of mankind) that you’ll discover in the “Council Chamber” when age 1-1/4 will be finished. 
18 infinity bars, new puzzles, even harder than the previous ones, and new gameplays. 
So, you understand we are in the beginning of a new adventure. Therefore, your support is essential as well as your entertainment.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“I have developed PhilGood so far to be a fully playable and convincing game. 
This early access version offers gamers a very good-look at the core gameplay systems, the different types of messages, puzzles and symbols.

This new 0.1.3 Version lasts more than 2 hours according to the difficulty experienced by the puzzles.

This version contains :
• the room «Age 1-1/4» (± 30 minutes minimum),
• the first Empire 1 or Age 1 (± 90 minutes minimum),
• the council chamber (with ATM exchange water),
• the resurrection Bank (2 unlocked rooms – as much time as you want),
• all options,
• a map,
• the inventory.

This version contains also :
• a few ennemies (killer saboteurs, killer sparkles, assault vultures),
• 4 leaks’s puzzles,
• 3 «Lumen»'s puzzles (harder),
• 4 fires to put out,
• several symbols to find,
• different messages,
• and an ancient stone...? To find.

And cherry on the cake, the first 3 infinity bars out of a total of 18 bars for the entire game …”

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

“From Beta version 0.1.3 onwards, there will be a price for early access.
This price will increase at the V1.0 launch.”

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

“I will mainly interact through the Steam discussions, as well with other social media. 
I really want to strive to be as accessible as possible going forward, and cultivate a more open dialogue with players.
Do not hesitate to contact me ...”

About This Game

"Philgood" is a new 2D adventure/puzzle game.
It stages a little character stucked in a white “line”  !
Why did this happen ? How to reach the end of this "line" much more alive than it seems ...

A reflection on the world for gamers who want to see further...!
Behind an apparent simplicity lies a solid scenario, comparing the ideas, the point of views and criticisms of a Greek philosopher about his area (8th century BC), and the various abuses of our contemporary world with its socio-political-economic crises. Which shows there’s nothing new under the sun ... or almost !
A story filled of metaphors, mysteries and discoveries.

An unknown entity sends you to look for the bars of infinity scattered in the different Empires.
The only way for PhilGood to find his loved ones is to accept the challenge and follow the instructions given by this entity.
Fight every enemy, solve every riddle in order to overcome obstacles and get a little closer to the “truth”.
But at every moment, your life hangs by a thread !

Its various gameplay requires reflection, skills, a fighting spirit, water and breath savings, speed and restraint to find clues and hidden messages, and to decode and solve the puzzles.

Another particularity of the game is the system of life reconstruction, especially resurrection in a parallel world, always well linked to the scenario. A system that allows the player never to be blocked while giving more variety.

And a special mention for the original, interesting and even suprising soundtrack !

.... And in the end, you believe you've seen everything, you believe you have all the keys.
And if the Empires were to hide another reality.
What is their true secret...!
