What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I have chosen Early Access as I feel that especially with a strategically complex game such as this one, with its deep balancing mechanics, the input of you, the players, is essential to the quality of the game. The earlier I can include valuable feedback by those who dig the concept of the game, the better the final quality will become. I think I am trying to create a very unique game with Cardaclysm, there are only a handful of games where I can draw inspiration from. Hopefully alongside the great community we can create something refreshingly new that lives up to the vision I have in mind.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until it's done :-) Honestly speaking, I am planning to have the full content to be completed by late fall.”

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

“Right now there are only two out of the four bosses in the game. The final version will have all four bosses, more cards, more features (I have many great things in mind which may or may not end up in the game: more possibilities for deck building, more enemies, items, quests, NPCs...). At full release, the game's buyers will receive a full content game worth it's value.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version at EA launch will already include roughly half the content with two bosses, the interdimensional pub, over 150 cards, the inventory and item management, quests, and much more. The game should run fully stable with no major technical issues.”

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

“Yes, the price will be raised to a higher price point at full launch. The lower price of the EA version is also a bit meant as a treat for you players who embark on this great venture with me at an earlier stage :-)”

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

“Besides the usual tech feedback and bug reports, which hopefully won't be too many, I am especially hoping and looking for deck building and card strategies from the players to see where the balancing might be off and to discover "killer decks" and "killer card combos" so I can close these loopholes and keep the game as interesting and fresh over time as possible. For this I am inviting everyone to hop on the game's Discord server or to provide valuable feedback via the Steam forums. I will also give out some exclusive cards here and there which won't be available to regular buyers coming too late to the party :-P”
