What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The six stories that are the main contents of the game have already been implemented and are ready to play. However, we have decided that "Early Access" should be described from the following viewpoints.

* We are planning regular updates regarding the expansion of flavor texts and improved visuals, and we also want to adjust the game balance based on user feedback.

* The localization of this work is extremely limited (user interface only), especially because we recognize that it is not appropriate to sing "finished product" to overseas users.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We would like to continue the Early Access period, at least until the English translation and visual improvements of the main contents (six basic stories) are complete. Of course, we will continue to focus on reflecting the requests from users even after the end of early access.

Specifically, we plan to have an early access period of approximately 15 - 20 months.
We aim to complete the Early Access period by the fall of 2022 at the latest.”

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

“Game balance adjustments, convenience updates, and staging enhancements will be the main changes until the final full version release. The text of the main content part will not change from the time of Early Access release, but episodes may be added without notice.

Regarding the scope of localization, we will give priority to the English version first, but we will consider additional localization support depending on the needs.
* However, even if there is a non-English localization, it will be after the full version release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“* Visual Improvements
Visual improvements have been completed for the following stories. (3/6 of the whole)
- Part 1-1. "Rabbit Banquet" (Story of [Emirate of Afghanistan])
- Part 1-2. "Dear Magnolia" (Story of [Russian Empire])
- Part 1-3. "Admitted Fatherland" (Story of [Barakzai Dynasty])

* English Translation
English translation has been completed for the following items. (3/6 of the whole)
- Basic User Interface
- Part 0. "The Great Game" (Tutorial Scenario)
- Part 1-1. "Rabbit Banquet" (Story of [Emirate of Afghanistan])
- Part 1-2. "Dear Magnolia" (Story of [Russian Empire])
- Part 1-3. "Admitted Fatherland" (Story of [Barakzai Dynasty])

These will be updated sequentially with game balance adjustments and system improvements.”

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

“There are no plans to revise the price in the future.”

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

“We would appreciate it if you could comment on your request / report on the Steam bulletin board.
We will give priority to defects > improvement requests > others (adjustment proposals, etc.).
Please note that we cannot answer individual questions.”

About This Game

A historical low fantasy strategy game surrounding the Great Game and Golem technology at the end of the 19th century

Long ago, humankind received special grace in the form of "words."
"ShemHaMephorash", which moves clay dolls and gives them miracles, supported civilization.
In addition, the world called and praised the people who manipulated that special power as "Scribe (Rabbi)."

Over the years, humankind has been devoted to battle, just like historical facts, and rabbis has been deeply involved in battle.
That didn't change during the 1878 Afghanistan's war and The Anglo-Russian Great Game.

■ Game system
This game is a derivative of the strategy game "Vahrentuga", which consists of a turn-based strategy phase and an RTS-style tactical phase set in the Second Anglo-Afghan War that broke out in 1878.

The purpose of the basic game is to expand your territory and use the income from that territory to take advantage of the battle and keep your army alive until the end of the story.
In addition, you must achieve the victory conditions set for each story.

The most important thing in battle is a stable logistics.
Let's prepare the military and domestic affairs suitable for the war situation and steadily grow the power.

Your tactics can easily overturn sometimes inferior situations.
