What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We chose to launch the game in early access first to further adjust the game mechanics and content by gathering feedback and insights from players. That will help us make the game better. We believe early access will be a good way to reach a bigger player base to get proper data.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We aim to release the full game around Q1 in 2022. We don’t want to lock in the exact release date quite yet, because there’s still a lot to do. Hopefully after the first months of Early Access we can determine the release date more accurately.”

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

“The full version will include more biomes to explore, more loot, items and monsters, quests, several endings and a story. Many of these things will be added during the early access period. We’ll be listening to the community during the early access to find other potential good additions to the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At the start of the Early Access, there will be both single and multiplayer possibility, two biomes to explore, five tools with several upgrades and character customization. If you played the Demo build in June, the early access version has approximately doubled the content from that.”

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

“The early access version is cheaper than the full release. We will be adding more content to the game and therefore the price is likely to go up.”

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

“The main communication platforms are our discord server and the steam community forums. In those places, the community can share their thoughts and report bugs, which the developers will be monitoring actively. You can find the discord invitation link in the community forum’s pinned post.”
