What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“When developing games on my own, I often have a narrow perspective, so I wanted to enhance the game content from a broader perspective while getting feedback from the players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The duration of early access will be approximately six months to one year.”

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

“The full version will include more destinations and types of companions for your journey, with the aim of achieving more diverse journeys and in-depth exploration of the world. I will also increase the types of events that occur during the journey.
Elsewhere, I will improve functionality and translation based on feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game cycles and systems described in "ABOUT THIS GAME" have already been completed. It is early access, but enough content has been implemented to imagine and fully enjoy the world.

The current version includes the following content.

  • Seasonal, time and weather systems.
  • 22 cities/towns and ruins
  • 16 different journey friends
  • Over 250 short scenes of everyday life in the desert

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

“The plan is to increase prices when adding new destinations or topics.”

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

“I will keep you all updated on the progress of the development through developer Twitter and Blog. I would also like to receive your feedback through our Community Hub and Mail Form.
