What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to communicate with users and receive lots of feedback in order to polish up the final product. We had an early access for Touhou Luna Nights, which was very successful, so we would like to try the same process this time as well.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This title is a completely solo project, from the graphics and music to the programming, so there is currently no exact timeline for when the game will be completed. However the developer is aiming to have it completed within 1~2 years.
It may take some time, but the goal is to bring you a polished title with a beautifully realized Gensokyo, all of your favorite Touhou characters and truly entertaining features.”

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

“The full release will have all the boss stages. The level design has also been adjusted and has been designed taking the whole game into account. The early access version was designed to allow quick access to battles and exploration.

We are planning for there to be 6 stages in total. Release will be after we have developed the final stage and boss and the game can be cleared normally.

Based on user feedback we are planning the following updates:

・Additional playable characters.
・Around 10 additional close combat skills.
・Adjustments to ranged attacks.
・A new EXP. system allowing players to choose which stats to increase.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“While the full game will have 6 stages, the current early access version is just the first stage. The other 5 stages will have new game mechanics, enemies and a complete cast of bosses.

Currently the only playable character is the main character Suika. We are planning to add other characters to the roster so players can choose their favorite to play with. There are also plans to add new moves to use in combat and an experience point system that can be used to raise a character’s stats.

The early access version gives access to a lot of skills from the start in order for users to have an idea on what kind of skills are available. In the full release skills will be unlocked and upgraded gradually as you progress through the game.”

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

“Taking into account the volume of additional content compared to the early access version, the price is likely to be set at 1.5~2 times the current price.”

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

“Using the community hub, we are sounding out what the general opinion is on Steam. Periodically we will collect user comments and requests in English, Japanese and Simplified Chinese and send them as feedback to the developer.”
