What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As a small development team, we're pouring our hearts and souls into the creation of this game. We're incredibly passionate about crafting an immersive and exciting experience that will capture your imagination and provide countless hours of fun. We feel it's time to open up the game to a wider audience. We would be delighted to welcome new players to join in and offer their valuable feedback. As we strive to make the best game possible, we could really use all the help we can get. Your support and involvement would mean the world to us.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“If everything goes smoothly with the development process, we anticipate that the game will be ready for its final release in approximately one year. However, this timeline may be subject to change depending on the amount of new content that needs to be added, and the level of balancing and polishing required to achieve our desired level of quality. We're optimistic about meeting our timeline and delivering a great game to our players.”

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

“The full version of the game will feature two brand-new Acts, complete with a host of unique monsters, overworlds, towns, dungeons, bosses, and mini-bosses. In order to ensure that these new additions meet our standards, we will need to devote a significant amount of time and effort to balancing and polishing.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Act 1 of the game is almost fully realized and playable, featuring a wealth of content and key systems that have been carefully designed and implemented. While there is always room for improvement, we're committed to doing our best to make it happen.

Players can expect to encounter an engaging and immersive experience that highlights the game's unique mechanics, along with challenging enemies, rewarding loot, and a variety of environments to explore. We're confident that Act 1 represents an excellent foundation for the rest of the game, and we can't wait for players to dive in and start exploring for themselves.

In the early access version, players can expect to play as one of four unique character classes and explore countless dungeons, engage in challenging miniboss fights, and take on an epic act boss battle. The game will also include upgradable character progress terminals, vendors with various weapon types, a multitude of enemies, and an expansive overworld to explore.

Early access version will give us a chance to fine-tune all aspects of the game and stay up to speed with the needs and wishes of our community. We're committed to taking player feedback seriously and doing our best to incorporate it into the full release. Our goal is to create an exciting and engaging experience that exceeds our players' expectations, and we're excited to work closely with our community to make that happen.”

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

“At this time, we have not made a final decision regarding pricing for the game. While we are still considering our options, we are leaning towards the price staying the same.”

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

“As a small team, we are committed to actively listening to player feedback, engaging in ongoing discussions with our community, and taking steps to address any concerns or issues that arise. To facilitate these conversations, we will be leveraging various communication channels, including Discord and other platforms, to ensure that we remain accessible and responsive to our players' needs. We believe that by working together, we can continue to improve the game and deliver an exceptional experience for all.
