What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Since I am only one person, it is very hard for me to find all bugs and balance the game alone. The feedback I get from players is what allows me to polish the game and make it as good as I want it to be.

Furthermore, games like this can be played in so many ways, other players will always find ways to use the mechanics that I never thought of when creating them. Games tend to take on a life of their own, the developers path always changes and, to not get lost, the players themselves need to be heard.

More simply put: To make the game the challening and dynamic experience I dream of making, I will need all the feedback I can get.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It's very hard to tell, but I am hoping no more than sixth months to a year. Update: It has almost been a year and it is still in early access, but almost all the main pieces are in place! =) In another six month, first quater of 2023, 1.0 will perhaps be released.”

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

“This version will have all the foundational mechanics:
- Random generated worlds with different cultures.
- Random generated villagers with different abilities and skills. They will need to eat, sleep and socialize, etc. You will chose their occupations: guard, hunter, fisher, healer, farmer, and more. They will gain experience and improve their skills.
- Day and night cycles and different seasons.
- Building and crafting mechanics.
- Events like hordes of undeads attacking, new people looking to settle or trade, and bandits trying to plunder your village.

The full version will have:
- More of everything: content, biomes, items, enemies, portraits, events, and a travelable world.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“This version will have all the foundational mechanics (Please see the "About this game"-section). However, it will have less content in the following ways: Less biomes, items, enemies and polish in general, and the world will not be travelable.

In its current state the game should still provide you with many hours of enjoyable content, exploration and experiences.”

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

“The price may increase moderately when the game leaves Early access.”

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

“All feedback is very welcome and it will help me iron out bugs, balance the game and also hint me in the right direction, what to focus on more and so forth. I will read and consider all feedback posted here in the community discussions, but a more direct way of reaching me:

Here is a link to my discord where I very much hope to recieve your feedback and perhaps see some lively discussions!

About This Game

A world will be generated. It will contain vast oceans, snow covered mountains and bare deserts. It will be inhabited by different cultures, brutal pirates, noble intellectuals and everything in between. They will all have one thing in common: the struggle to survive in a world overrun by the the undead...

This is a sequel to the game Grim Nights. However, many things will be very different. This game will focus less on tower defense and much more on your villagers and the management of your growing settlement. Villagers will have different skills, backgrounds and relationships. They will eat, sleep, fight and work. Sometimes they will be obedient and other times the grim world will break them and force them to turn on eachother.

PS: The game is very much in development, so this description and the screenshots reflects that.
