What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We planned early access right from the beginning of the development. Early access allows us to gain feedback from players to improve the gameplay. Based on this feedback, as well as our own ideas, we will continually develop and update the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning to leave the early access before the end of 2022.”

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

“We have tons of ideas for new content like expeditions to foreign lands, fights against wild beasts, new equip, new maps, voice output and much more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The fundamentals of most of the key features are already implemented and the game is to a decent extent optimized. For a list of the content currently implemented, see the "About this" section below. But please keep in mind that some features like fights against animals are still in the proof-of-concept phase and we've to continuously keep adding content to improve the quality of the game. Additionally, the game needs a lot of polish and the balancing process has only just begun.”

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price after early access.”

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

“We would be grateful if players would contact us via e-mail or via our discord channel and suggest their ideas for improving the game experience or report the bugs found.”
