What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access allows us to continue to develop the game with the support and help of our amazing community. While the game is already rich in content and features, we believe that the opportunity to work directly with players and collect feedback is an essential next step before official release. We're looking forward to working with the PC Steam community to achieve that final step and bring new changes to the game over time that will help optimize the experience on the platform.

As the Early Access period progresses, we'll introduce free content updates that bring new features into the game, gameplay optimizations, and more. The community will help play a critical role in shaping the game's progress during this time!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We intend to give the game the time it needs on PC Early Access to optimize the experience on PC, which we estimate could be released within a year depending on feedback. Updates on the game's progress will be shared via our community channels as Early Access progresses.”

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

“Throughout Early Access, we'll introduce free updates with new features, new heroes, and more modes optimized for the PC experience. We'll also be tuning the experience based on player feedback, especially in areas like puzzle combat, controller support, and more.

With the community's help, the official release will be the fully realized Puzzle Quest 3 experience on PC.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Puzzle Quest 3 is launching on Early Access as a free-to-play title with the story fully playable from start to finish across five different classes. The game is rich with various features ready to be played - including PVP, real-time coop, and upcoming live events.

We're launching a fully playable Puzzle Quest experience; however, we want to take the time to flesh out the gameplay and features on PC before heading into our official release. We're looking for ample players to take on as many battles and quests as possible to help us achieve this.”

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

“Puzzle Quest 3 will remain a free-to-play experience throughout Early Access and the official release.”

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

“The Puzzle Quest 3 team utilize a variety of spaces to receive feedback from our community. Both the development and community team frequent our official forums. We use this feedback internally to change, balance, provide quality of life updates, and shape the game into something that works for ourselves and our community.

Additionally, we have monthly developer streams where we will preview updates or changes, plus answer questions from the community.”
