What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The feedback from releasing the free demo of Luck be a Landlord proved to be invaluable to the development and balance of the game. Releasing the game as an Early Access title will allow for even more feedback, helping to make the game even better as it's developed!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The plan is to release a full version of Luck be a Landlord some time in 20212022. An exact release date will be announced once development is close to completion.”

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

“The features and content planned to be added before exiting Early Access include, but aren't limited to...

  • At least 100 more unique slot machine symbols
  • At least 100 more unique obtainable items
  • An endless mode
  • User Interface improvements
  • Customizable keyboard shortcuts
  • Controller/Gamepad support
  • Steam achievements

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access build of Luck be a Landlord already has enough content to allow for several hours of gameplay. Since runs of the game are randomly generated, the high amount of symbols and items means no two runs will ever be exactly the same! The current Early Access build has 100+ symbols and 70+ items that can be found and used in a single run of the game.”

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

“The price of Luck be a Landlord will gradually increase as more content and features are added to the Early Access version.”

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

“Every piece of feedback is read and taken into account for how to make the game better. Many features were added to the game due to community suggestions! The best place to leave feedback, ask questions, etc. is the game's official discord. Dan (The programmer, designer, and artist of Luck be a Landlord) will always respond to any messages left for him there.”
