Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Roll Player is based on a popular board game. While our game implements all the rules of the original board game, we feel that the game isn't complete without an online multiplayer component. Our goal is to make the game available as Early Access while we develop and test online multiplayer.

We would also like to improve interface and animations. Roll Player is a strategy / puzzle with a lot of information available at any given time and it has been challenging to present it in a smooth and intuitive way. Feedback on how intuitive the interface is and what areas should be improved would be most helpful.

Big thanks to our community and everyone contributing!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“8 months”

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

“Full game will have cross platform online multiplayer with the ability to create both public and private online games or join the existing ones.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The original idea was to make sure that Early Access players can start and finish a game of Roll Player. The game was released in Early Access with ability to play solo mode or local multiplayer with friends (on the same device or with Steam Remote Play). In the meantime we received a lot of feedback from our community and implemented the ability to play against 5 levels of AI, track your best heroes and various stats, and added a lot of visual and UX improvements. We are now back on track and focusing on online multiplayer.”

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

“Price will not change when we leave Early Access but we plan to continue developing the game after the release.”

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

“We have a discord channel (https://discord.gg/TbApr3WMnD) where we chat with community about the game, receive feedback and bug reports, notify them with updates and talk about our future plans.”
