What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“By trying out Deck Defenders during Early Access, you'll not only get to play the game before it's finished, but you'll also be able to shape its development by providing feedback and suggestions. This is a great opportunity to be a part of the game's creation and to make it the best it can be.

If you're excited about Deck Defenders and want to be a part of its development, we encourage you to try the game now and join us on this journey. We can't wait to hear your feedback and to make Deck Defenders the best it can be!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning a full release in Q1 or Q2 of 2023.”

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

“Some of the things we still want to add are:
  • A playback system that will allow players to review their matches and analyze their gameplay
  • A dynamic server system instead of a group of static servers
  • More PvE features for players who aren't as interested in PvP matches
  • More types of cosmetics like card skins, stats on the versus screen, and many more
  • Game balance needs a lot of work
  • A social system and the ability to duel someone
  • More steam integration (Achievements, cards, inviting people to games)
  • User-interface overhaul (many menus are still placeholders)
  • Implement missing sounds and more variety in music

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of Deck Defenders is fully playable, with a wide variety of cards and engaging gameplay. However, there may be occasional bugs or other issues, and some features are still in development. We'll be constantly updating the game based on your feedback, so please let us know if you encounter any issues or have suggestions for improvements.”

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

“The game will always be free to play.”

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

“We will be keeping an eye on the discussion board, the Discord, YouTube and other forums looking at all the feedback and making adjustments to the game based on what we see.

We also are planning a lot of community involvement with card ideas and designs.”
