What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We’ve been inviting players to playtest The Lost Village since we finished our Demo development in 2020. This Chinese ancient city-builders and Roguelike game aren’t exactly an established genre, and your voice helps us decide what works and what doesn’t. Thanks to that feedback, the core of the game is here, it’s fun to play, and we want to make it available for everyone.

We will update our first English Version in 1 month

We will now be adding more content ahead of the full release, and Early Access players will help us choose where to go next. During that time, The Lost Village will still have that work-in-progress to let everyone see our sincerity.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect the Early Access to last at least a year. While we have ideas for what needs to be done before the full release, players’ feedback affects that and we’re ready to put in additional time”

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

“The Lost Village has been evolving based on what players want and that remains the plan for Early Access development. The players’ suggestions dictate the specifics of what we add next.

Whether that means additional special events, treasures, KongFu Skills. Becides, we are developing more Skins of villagers, more buildings and resources.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Now we have all core mechanics are here but may require further iterations. That includes architecture, 3 beautiful Village maps, 100+ Kongfu skills, 20+ different event maps in illusion, and countless random weapons for palyers to use in Roguelike challenge.

The basic experience of players can be guaranteed between each level, but we will continue to expand our game content in the future.”

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

“We plan to increase the price after Early Access. There might be seasonal discounts during Early Access, including a launch discount for early adopters.”

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

“Before releasing major updates, we test the new content on The Lost Village’s experimental branch, open to all players. We read all feedback on all our channels, including Weibo, BiliBili, QQ Group 737593573 where we hang out with the community every day. For the bugs, we’ve got an in-game crash reporting tool and there’s a public bug tracker.”
