What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I would like a lot of player feedback with suggestions for spells and game mechanics so we can develop the game together. I will also be supporting this game for a long time with many free updates. Early Access will let the community know that this isn't a game that is going to be released and abandoned. They can get used to seeing multiple updates influenced by their feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Roughly 12 months of Early Access.”

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

“I plan to have 3 Worlds/Levels in the Early Access build and shoot for a total of 30 spells. In the full release of the game I plan to have 5 Worlds/Levels with a total of 100 spells. Each world will contain several boss encounters, puzzles, and dungeons to explore. The feedback I receive from Early Access will help to determine how large each world should be and how much content it should contain. Ideally the full release will be twice the size of the Early Access.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently there are 3 Worlds with 3 Bosses in this build. There are a total of 30 spells which you can find.”

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

“The Early Access price will be half of what the full game release price will be.”

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

“The point of Early Access will be to gain feedback from the community and adjust my game accordingly. I have a Youtube channel, Steam's forums, and a twitter receive feedback.”
