What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want Laysara to be a great game and during alpha playtests we learned that getting feedback from players is absolutely essential for achieving that. Internal testing can only get you so far, only by interacting with real players can we fully understand what areas of our game need improvement.

Also, going for a full launch right away is somewhat scary :) The Early Access period will allow us to address issues that we, as a micro indie studio, might have missed and polish the game to the best of our abilities before releasing the 1.0 version.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to be in Early Access for around 6 - 12 months.”

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

“Our plan is for the full version to feature a campaign mode, a few additional end-game features, more maps and tons of tweaks, improvements and quality-of-life changes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version allows for building multiple towns on different mountains and features all the most important game mechanics, such as a complex transportation system, avalanches and weather breakdowns, and raising the Summit Temples. The game has gone through a few playtesting stages already, so it should be an enjoyable experience without any obvious defects and game-breaking bugs, but rather a room for improvement here and there.”

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

“The price will probably go up slightly when we reach the 1.0 launch.”

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

“We are reading every single message from our players both on Steam forums and our Discord server, as players’ feedback is invaluable to us. We will continue to encourage players to share their insights with us and we will act upon them because, in the end, we’re making this game for the players, not ourselves.”

About This Game

Laysara: Summit Kingdom is a challenging city builder which tasks you with creating a new home for your people forced out of the lowlands. During a campaign or sandbox playthrough, you will establish multiple towns, each on a unique mountain with its own traits. All your towns co-exist in symbiosis, creating a trading network, which you can then adjust to your needs by revisiting already developed settlements. The Kingdom of Laysara has to be rebuilt!

BUILD ON A MOUNTAIN



Each mountain comes with a new set of challenges. Mounts differ in shapes, vegetation zone layouts, resource availability and weather conditions. Sometimes you will have plenty of room for farming in green lowlands, sometimes you will need to rely on breeding and extracting valuable minerals from regions dangerously close to peak glaciers. If you find yourself in dire need of a certain resource, you can always try to establish a trading route with another town.

DEAL WITH AVALANCHES



One of the ever-present dangers you will have to deal with are mighty avalanches. You can’t stop them, but you can take precautions and be prepared. Afforest the key areas to create natural barriers, build artificial ones to redirect rushing masses of snow, or trigger the avalanche early, while it’s still manageable. Create a deliberate and reliable strategy and you might even be able to use the power of snow to your advantage; fail to do so and find your city buried and devastated!

CRAFT A TRANSPORT NETWORK



So, transporting goods is easy, right? Well, not if your destination lies on the other side of the mountain, a few hundred meters higher, behind cliffs, ridges, canyons and rivers. You will need to create a vast, complex transport network consisting of roads, bridges and shafts to ensure reliable delivery chains. As demand for resources will grow alongside the town’s population, always look for opportunities to optimise your transportation network, be it by building paved roads, using more advanced lifting constructions, or aiding your carriers with glamorous yaks.

RAISE A SUMMIT TEMPLE



If you manage to endure all mountain dangers, build a network of efficient production chains and satisfy all needs of your people, there is only one more thing to be done: conquering the mountain peak! To succeed in this great endeavour you’ll need to reach the summit and establish safe routes for your carriers to bring in enormous amounts of building resources, but beware! Weather at this height is as deadly as ever. The final effect is well worth the effort though, as raising the summit temple is an act of total triumph of human courage (and your logistics skills!) over the elements.

Final note: the game is a pure city building experience solely focused on the economy, resource management and surviving despite the inhospitable environment. Therefore, the game doesn’t feature combat or any other military aspects.
