What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“"This is Dylan- your Dungeon Master and Creative Director of NerdzGarage.
Our adventure has been arduous, however, our group of creatives has appreciated the hours in the dungeon of ROLL FOR INITIATIVE.
We believe the game is ready to be playtested by all of you.

We love hearing ideas and discussing the possible features in the game.
While RFI already feels like a complete game there are many defining features yet to be added and the current content represents an introductory stage to a larger, more open, and varied setting. Most features will make an appearance in both games bringing the scope of RFI far beyond what it may appear to be now.
Grab a seat and ROLL FOR INITIATIVE!"”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“"We plan to be in early access for one year. Of course, this may change depending on the feedback of the community."”

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

“"We plan to expand on all features, including:
• Fully voiced story
• Ten plus levels
• Multiple classes to play- Cleric, Barbarian, Warlock, and more
• A wide variety of magical spells
• Multiple unique Boss Encounters
• An array of melee and ranged weapons to choose from
• Customizable dice
• Multiple enemies from popular tabletop adventures\and more."”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“"This is the earliest playable version of a Gane Design Master's program project.
• Two Levels
• Two prototype player classes
• One prototype boss encounter
Being a small team, we put in choices that we thought players would enjoy playing. This means your feedback and suggestion will make a big difference."”

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

“"Yes. The game is currently free for those who support it early. The price will increase upon release."”

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

“" We plan to share feedback on Discord, emails, Social Media, and our Steam community. These suggestions will help build a better dungeon.
We want to thank everyone for their support of Roll for Initiative!"”
