What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game tries to integrate match 3 mechanics into combat. This requires player feedback for balancing. We want to make plenty of different ability combinations for combat that matter, and for that we'll need your help.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Depending on the feedback amount from community, the game is going to be in early access for 3-12 months.”

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

“We intend to add more characters and expand the amount of abilities / levels / enemies.

The overall aim of early access is to add more content based on community feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Early Access version has polished effects and 4 playable characters that join your group as you progress. There are approximately 2 hours of content.

The EA version has:
- 30 rooms
- 53 abilities (not all unique)
- 4 unique mercenaries
- 37 enemies (14 unique, including enviromentals)”

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

“This will depend on the amount of content added. We intend to increase the price gradually if the game stays in early access for more than 6 months. For now, the price stays as it is, but players are going to be warned in advance about the possible changes.”

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

“Community is invited to leave their feedback on Steam forums or on our own social media channels (links in the game).”
