What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I need all of the community's feedback to create the best version of this game we possibly can! All of the game design, programming, and balance is done by a single person, so every bit of feedback is super helpful!

You've helped me make massive improvements over the last year of Early Access that wouldn't have been possible on my own.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“There are plans for a significant expansion to the story, characters, and worldbuilding to really flesh out the world of the game.

Right now, I'm working on a huge improvement to boss mechanics, and tying those into story elements that are coming. I update the game frequently, usually a major update every month, and many micro-updates throughout the week.

I expect everything I've got planned to take at least until the end of 2023.”

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

“I make very large / experimental changes to the game at a rapid pace, with a large focus on streamlining things that are over complicated, and redesigning systems if they aren't making the game more enjoyable. Rather than having a specific roadmap, I adjust my plans quickly based on what people playing the game are experiencing.

Things to expect:
- Significant Visual / Audio / Polish / Performance improvements (All game art is currently Beta Art)
- More lore & dialogue
- More items, skills, units, and bosses
- Additional postgame content and unlocks”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable through all 3 acts, and into the final boss area with 3 different final bosses.

-20+ bosses and 80+ enemies that can be used on your team
- 3 Final Bosses.
- 11 Customizable starter builds
- 500+ Skills
- 24 Customizable Difficulty Options”

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

“The price will increase when the game leaves early access.”

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

“I read all the feedback in every review, and in Discord. Improving people's experience of the game is very important to me!

Balance suggestions, ideas for new content and features, and all other types of discussion are welcome!”

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