Why Early Access?

“Malice & Greed is packed with content and systems, and Early Access gives people the opportunity to give feedback on all of these as the game grows, helping me bring the vision of this game to life in a way that the community can have a direct part in!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Malice & Greed is planned to be in early access until the end of 2023. The game will continue to receive support after entering 1.0 release.”

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

“The final version of the game will feature a significant amount of additional content, and a complete visual overhaul out of beta art stage into a finalized artstyle.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently features 3 full acts of content, including more than 20 bosses, and 3 different Final Bosses. There are more than 20 difficulty levels for players to climb, and 10 different starting builds to use, with over 500 skill cards in total.”

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

“The price will gradually increase as major milestones are reached. These will be announced in advance.”

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

“If you were to fuse Shin Megami Tensei and Slay the Spire, then this would probably be pretty close to the result. The game mechanics themselves are rock solid and enthralling, while the venomous fantasy that it all coagulates into is similarly unforgettable.”

“Malice & Greed is awesome! I love the 'Potential' mana system, I love the weakness and strength system, and I love being able to use the enemies as my own!”
