What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“There is a lot of content and features I plan to add to the game. The game will be released in an Early Access state with multiple content updates before the final release. During this time, my ear is open to the community, your feedback and suggestions.

As a rogue-lite, this game benefits from early access in that it can be fully playable in an earlier stage of development while content updates can maintain interest.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in Early Access for 1 year. I plan to launch into Early Access in 2021, with a closed alpha build available now for playtesters.”

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

“The full version will be much more refined, polished and include more content. Gameplay won't fundamentally change, although the final version will have a much greater diversity of biomes, units, technology, animals and interactive systems.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state is a rough slice of gameplay just to get an idea of what the game will be and show the vision of the future product. I recommend NOT purchasing the game at this point, unless you're planning on being a beta tester.”

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

“No, at this point in development, the price will remain the same throughout the lifecycle of the game.”

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

“I'm specifically entering Early Access to get feedback from players so that I can fix bugs and optimize gameplay and design clarity. I'm interested to see how we can together grow the game into something that will remain interesting to existing players and newcomers to the game.

About This Game

Kainga is ancient village builder set in a fantasy world full of surprises. Adaptation is key where weather events, massive beasts or other tribes can easily erase you from history. Every time you play, your village's culture, technology, and look will be different depending on your surroundings, environment, climate, altitude and the resources available to you. Design a unique town with every play-through.

At the center of your town is your "Thinker". This slow, weak, leader guides your clan, discovers new technology and must be protected at all costs! The Thinker uses energy to come up with technology that will help your town advance, and in return, the people must host festivals to recharge his energy.

  • Create A Unique Culture
  • Adapt to Your Surroundings
  • Train Units and Tame Beasts
  • Defend Against Raids
  • Acquire new knowledge for future runs

This is a Strategy Roguelite: Death is permanent and a looming threat, but the lessons you learn, and the technology you discover and Thinkers you rescue will allow you to get further on your next adventure.

Kainga is being developed by myself, Erik, a solo developer.
