What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Tales From Hoia Baciu Forest is in early access because it will have multiple parts.
Early access contains the first chapter to introduce you to the story. Feedback helps me understand what people want and what they like and dislike about the game.
As a work in progress, chapters will be released like a tv show, after I complete them.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in early access until the story is over and all chapters will be published.
I estimate 12 months for the game to be completed for a lot of content to be added.”

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

“The full version will contain the whole story, with new mechanics and gameplay. The full version will have all gameplay with all chapters and sidequests. Mechanics like pistols, puzzles, etc.
Future events with thematics.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“It has short gameplay that contains the first chapter. Early access will start with a linear story and simple gameplay with a few things to investigate and to make you wonder about the story and a few mechanics.”

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

“The game will remain free forever.”

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