What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“After over two years of development, I am excited to get Woodland Empire out into the world.

While there are still refinements and additions to be made, the core gameplay is relaxing and fun.

I want to share Woodland Empire with the world and build on the foundation of the game with player feedback.

Woodland Empire early access will be frequently updated. It will have a Beta channel that will have even more frequent updates. Players are encouraged to join the Beta channel.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I will continue to support and update the game long after release, but intensive early-access development will last approximately six months.”

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

“I plan to add more species of flora and fauna, a map creator and other map building tools. I also welcome player feedback for ideas about what to add to the game.

Controller support is also something I am considering adding if there is demand for it.

I will also add more achievements as development progresses.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently represents the full core gameplay and includes many tutorials and scenarios. You can grow your forest with many species of trees and populate it with 7 different types of animals : Wolves, Foxes, Deer, Cardinals, hawks, Squirrels and Bison.

The core gameplay of growing a thriving forest ecosystem is complete with many natural mechanics:

  • Sun - You control how much sun
  • Wind - You can control the wind to influence things like seeds and fire spread.
  • Rain - You can control where rain falls and whether trees live or die
  • Fire can burn and spread across all plants in your forest
  • Diseases - ravage certain plant species
  • Tornadoes - eliminate mature trees and plants
  • Plant reproduction - Keep your forest healthy and it will spread
  • Animal reproduction - Animals reproduce if they are part of a healthy ecosystem

There are 4 scenarios to explore and overcome with different game mechanics. There are also 11 maps you can use for free play.”

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

“I plan on increasing the price of the full, completed game.”

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

“I welcome all feedback on Discord, Steam forums and linked social media accounts. The Steam community has already helped with the Linux version and the Discord community has helped supply ideas for additional species of plans and animals.

My goal for Woodland Empire is to have a community exchanging ideas about woodland ecosystems with many community-driven updates into the future.”
