What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game hasn't reach its true potential, and we believe that players' feedback will improve the process of game development as new features and fixes can be added to the game. We want to understand how the players play the game and want to make the game a better experience for everyone.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The Early Access stage will last about one year, but it can be subject to a variety of factors, so please be patient as development continues.”

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

“We have setup a lot of gameplay and features for the Early Access version, but there are still many features and function are still under development.
In the complete version, more and better content will be introduced, and of course, we will also fix and adjust the problems that find out in the Early Access.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version contains survival, building, farming, and companionship; a main quest route; part of creatures and monsters, and a boss mission.
We know that bugs will appear (and we rely on feedback from players), and our goal is to bring you a really fun and great game, so we'll take any issues that come up in the Early Access seriously and deal with them.”

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

“The price of the game will not change during the Early Access.”

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

“We collect feedback from different players through the Steam community, QQ groups, emails. This will help us to better understand the core needs of the players. We expect the different way players make use of our game's design, which will also help us to improve the content and make the game more fun.”
