What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Here are many things I'd love to fix, change, add and expand.
Some mechanics are not working yet.
Crafters are needed much more work.
While art is ready - I'd love to hear feedback and requests.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“6 months will be enough. Roughly.
EDIT: Took 3 years. But hey - we are at the release!”

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

“The Full version will have 5 acts, 4 sets of heroes.
Crafters going to be more than just an entry - with own items, experience, level, and perks.
One more act(5th), and couple new sets of heroes: Empire and Amazons.
Some sort of PvP - Caravanning & Raiding will be available as well.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, RM is playable, beatable, and quite fun.
4 of 5 acts in game, 2 hero sets are in order.
Music is not in. Sounds missing as well.”

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


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

“I work better when there is feedback.
For me - it is much easy to fix and adapt the game to ppl that are playing it.

I use Steam forums and Discord to communicate with players.

Also, looking for help with translations.”

“Its a great game easy to understand, enjoyable to play and a great time killer.”
5/5 – Marimar Latagan

“First of all let me say: This is a very interesting game. I was a big fan of Sword and Potions, and Sorcery Quest. And it is very nice to see games that have some ideas based on them. Something that would make the experience better is the possibility to change the order of the characters. Keep up the good work :-)”
9/10 – Cristiano Diel

“Amazing game, like Merchant.”
8/10 – Eduardo Miranda
