What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The main reason why we're opting to launch the game in Early Access is to develop the rest of the game with as much player feedback as possible.

Our team strongly believes that gathering and analyzing player feedback is a crucial pillar when it comes to game development. By starting off our game in Early Access we wish to communicate with our player base and hopefully shape the game in the most enjoyable, fun and exciting game as possible.

We also can’t address the issue of bugs and technical problems in the game. While we promise that we will try our absolute best to deliver a flawless experience, the fact is developing and maintaining a “bug-less” game is nearly impossible. We know that it’s a lot to ask our players, but we would appreciate it tremendously if you guys can help us by reporting bugs that you encounter during gameplay.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to release the full game within 2021. That being said, the game will only stay in Early Access for around 6 months. We’re expecting these couple of months that the game will be in Early Access to be crucial to the final outcome of the game.”

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

“We already have a lot planned for the game’s official release. 1.0 will feature 4 different playable characters, a complete end to the game’s story, more playable in-game contents, a more robust permanent upgrade system and achievements. These are the things that we’re already planning on working on. The list of development agendas can become larger or altered during the course of Early Access if both our team and the majority of the player base agrees upon the addition or change.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • 4 beautifully designed chapters.
  • 4 formidable bosses located at the end of each chapter.
  • 3 completely unique weapons: Destroyer (blade), Inquisitor (axe), Evil Hunter (rifle)
  • 45+ elemental core upgrades that consists of 3 elements: Fire, Ice, and Electricity.
  • 50+ gear items.
  • 25+ weapon transformations.
  • ...and of course, a permanent character & weapon upgrade system.

On top of this, we will constantly update the game during Early Access and keep you posted on upcoming development news/updates.”

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

“Of course. We’re planning to increase the price of the game during the official launch of the game. That being said, those that support us by participating in the game’s Early Access period will continue to keep the game at the game’s Early Access price even after the 1.0 launch. Of course there’s the added benefit of communicating with us and shaping the game in its early stages.”

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

“We have an official Discord server where we can talk about the game and share feedback. We plan on using the server as the main communication method but we also do have an official Twitter account and support email as well!”
