What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“There's still a lot of things I would like to continue to work on and add in the game, and I'd like to do early access so the community can have a hand in influencing the games path. I believe the missing piece to my game is the communities voice, and I look forward to listening to everyone.
Discord :”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I'd like to give a time frame, but realistically I'd like to develop along side the communities input, and maintain flexibility to ensure a good experience for players. Over all I would like to be out of early access within 18 months.”

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

“There will be many differences in UI, game mechanics, and over all balance. Many new spells and items will be added, new areas to explore, and NPC's to talk to, although these will be added during early access aswell, the main difference will be a polished story outlined through questing and better refined mechanics.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All mechanics are in the game, like building, crafting, exploring, spell casting and npc trading/selling. This is a playable beta, with a lot of growing room left for the world design and over all story.”

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

“I currently plan on changing the price once out of early access gradually.”

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

“I'd love to gather feedback and implement any suitable features recommended by the community, to make the game better with every update. The community will be a great influence to the games progression. I can be reached on the games discord @ by email, for all feedback, suggestions or comments! You can now also find me on facebook @”
