What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As we develop this game, we want constant community engagement! Early access ensures that Fiefdom can get valuable feedback as soon as possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“1-2 years, depending on how much time we're able to put into it with work and school schedules.”

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

“We have a full roadmap published on the community page, but below are some features we plan on adding before full release:
  • Adding depth and variety to existing systems within the game, especially the randomized events.
  • Expanding on the natural world, including hunting and gathering natural resources
  • Adding a military update where you can war with adjacent fiefs for power and resources
  • Adding a magic system that will add special features throughout the game

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“This is very early on in the game's lifespan. We have done some pre-alpha testing before putting it on steam, but we wanted to get it in front of a wider audience as early as possible. For a list of features, please refer to the "About This Game" section below.”

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

“We plan to gradually increase the price every time we drop major content and features. Our goal is to have the price reflect the amount of time, effort, and love we've put in the game at any given point.”

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

“We aim to use the community page to post dev thoughts whenever we get sharable news. We also have a discord and a support email! We want to be constantly talking with our community about feedback and passion for the game. If all goes well, we may start video development logs to allow the community a glimpse into what we're working on.”

About the Developers

We’re a team of 2 lifelong friends from Colorado. One of us has been making games all of his life and the other loves developing deep and enriching stories. Together, we want to create unique and entertaining games refined from community engagement. We aim to carve our own niche in the indie gaming community. We'd love to chat more on our discord server.

Roadmap For the Future

    Keep in mind, Fiefdom is very early in development. So, we are looking to add much more content than what is released right now. Each update will also include a whole host of new events. With each major update, we plan to increase the price a small amount to reflect the time, effort, and love we’ve put into it. Topics for future updates include (but aren’t limited to) the following:
  • Wildlife Update: This will aim to make the area surrounding your fief feel more alive and also make you feel like you can have a more direct impact on the local fauna. Included with this update will also be a weather revamp to make seasons feel more unique. We are already developing this and should be released by the start of Q4 2022!
  • Military Update: This will most likely be the largest of any of the major updates. It will focus on a warring system where you can both invade and get invaded by adjacent kingdoms. Combat simulations and conquering systems will allow you to grow your kingdom at a rapid pace or drive it into the ground. Depending on the depth of the update and the demands of life (we still have real jobs for now), we’re hoping to have this out some time in 2023.
  • Adventure Update: This update will focus on expanding the family tree system that’s already in place by allowing family members to go on adventures to earn glory or disgrace themselves trying. Minigames may also be incorporated within this system to allow for more engaging gameplay during downtime. No estimates for release date yet.
  • Magic Update: This will add a magic system that is intertwined with other aspects of the game, adding more depth and customizability. No estimates for release date yet.
  • Other Areas of Improvement: Control settings, accessibility settings, improving efficiency, resource/population graphs over time, steam achievements, family tree portraits, and more!
