What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is a dialogue with the players who participate in the process of creating the game, the team focuses on feedback after each update.
The goal of Early Access is to work with users to create a product that will delight everyone.

In Knock on the coffin lid, the walkthrough for two heroes is already ready, this is enough to form an opinion about the game in Early Access, immerse yourself in the history of the world and experience the pleasure of winning the final battle.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are targeting the Q1 2023, if nothing portends trouble.”

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

“We are not that far from the release.
All game characters are ready and available in the game. In the near future we will completely update the storyline and all the events in the game. And also on the way is an integral DLC - "Milenis Nightmares" Despite the fact that the most stable build is now available, you may still encounter random bugs, missing scenes or art.

In the final version, we plan to add more cutscenes and visual effects, more art, events, and enemies. There is also a full-fledged work on game balance, mechanics and bugs so that you can get a full-fledged, high-quality product.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“- 4 biomes with charismatic inhabitants and complex conflicts
- 70+ events
- 50+ easy and 20+ worthy opponents
- 12 bosses and 3 super boss
- 1 secret superboss
- 450+ cards
- 200+ items (10+ special sets)”

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

“The price will not go up any more.”

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

“Of course these are your bug reports, but the gods of testing keep them. Communication with the audience allows you to soberly assess the balance, get feedback on the quality of a particular component. New ideas and a fresh perspective help to refine the already existing concept and the team's vision of the final product. We look at feedback, suggestions, discussions on Steam, the game's Discord server, and third-party forums.”
