What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“In the last months and years, we had a very good experience with other games in Early Access and the subsequent dialogue with the community and their valuable feedback. So, we want you, the community on board as soon as possible.

With Wild West Dynasty we take the Dynasty franchise’s successful formula of blending different genres like survival, sandbox, roleplaying, exploration, city-builder and story-driven action-adventure and give it a fresh spin.

We are looking forward to learning how you experience our mix of genres. We ask for your honest feedback and would like to incorporate your ideas and suggestions into the further development of the game. This way we would like to improve Wild West Dynasty together with you in the upcoming months. Thank you very much in advance for your support and join us on Discord!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to remain in early access for roughly twelve months. However, this is also depending on your feedback and ideas as well as the progress in our existing development and roadmap plans. We are looking forward to taking on the Wild West together with our community and to an exciting Early Access phase with many ideas, suggestions and feedback.”

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

“Our plan for Wild West Dynasty is to evolve and grow the game in close contact with the community. For the full version we want to include not only quality improvements but also expanded gameplay elements and features. We are aiming to continue and enhance the story. We are striving to grow the map area that the player can freely roam and explore as well as adding more elements that whill entice the exploration. We want to give the players many more side quests. We are planning the optimization of existing elements, balancing our gameplay systems and making sure that everything runs smoothly on a variety of systems and is thoroughly fun to play - regardless of your preferences in the Dynasty franchise.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The EA release candidate will already provide you with content for dozens of hours – depending on your playstyle and personal preferences even longer. Two of the game world’s three biomes are included. You will be experiencing an extensive and dramatic story developed and written by a renowned author. The story will be continued during the Early Access.

The game is quite advanced in its development with most of the core gameplay elements available in this EA stage, including resource gathering, detailed house building and furnishing them with hundreds of items, setting up settlements, assigning tenants etc. The basic reputation and economic systems are implemented. The game has been tested for performance and runs smoothly - yet (depending on your system), problems might occur, which we will of course address.

There can be balancing issues, since the all of the gameplay systems are intricately connected – but optimizing is a major part of our roadmap, which you will be able to find below in the “About the game” section, once the game is released into Early Access.”

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

“While there are no definite plans yet as to the percentage, we will increase the price for Wild West Dynasty for the 1.0 version. With the lower Early Access price, we also want to say 'thank you' to everyone for supporting us in the development.”

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

“Like with other games from us, we are planning to communicate mainly over Discord and our Social Media Channels and are also relying on the feedback to improve the game. There will be dedicated threads on topics like additional ideas, help & support as well as bugs. We invite every player to participate and provide us with feedback, so we can further enhance and optimize the game during the Early Access phase.”
