What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Going with Early Access gives us the opportunity to integrate player insights and suggestions as we continue to develop and refine the game. As a dedicated fan of roguelikes, we are aware of the importance of fine-tuning game balance, and player feedback and ideas will be invaluable in shaping Shogun Showdown.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in Early Access for approximately one year.”

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

“As the game progresses from Early Access to the full version, we plan on expanding the game's content and introducing new game mechanics.
This additional content, which we'll be releasing during regular updates in the early access period, will include new playable characters, attack tiles, skills, enemies, bosses, locations and secrets. We also plan on including more quests, ascension levels, and an extra game mode.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, the Early Access version features three playable characters with unique special abilities and 24 different attack tiles. There are six islands with 11 enemy types and 8 bosses. Game mechanics include tile upgrades and enchantments, in-game shops stocked with skills and potions, as well as quests and challenges to complete. Furthermore, the game incorporates an ascension system for added challenge.”

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

“Price will not change when we leave early access.”

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

“We are eager to hear feedback and suggestions from the community. Do you have a great idea for a new tile? A new skill? A new enemy or boss fight? Did you find a bug? Join the discussion on the Shogun Showdown discord.”
