Why Early Access?

“We would like to have players experience as much of the game that has been completed as possible and provide their feedback to help improve the development of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“When all of the chapters are completed and the story reaches its conclusion, the game will be removed from early access. Right now, we plan to be ready to fully release the game in 2 to 2 and a half years.”

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

“We plan to release more chapters which should include more character moments, story, and minigames. We plan for the full version to include the entire story of Friendly Facade.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The first 5 chapters have been completed thus far. You can experience all the gameplay features included in the "About This Game" section. We expect about 10-17 hours of gameplay.”

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

“Yes. The game may gradually raise in price as more content and features are added to it.”

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

About This Game

Friendly Facade is a visual novel with point and click and strategy mini-games incorporated into key story moments to immerse the player in the experience. The game explores how each character's background and strongly held ideals inform their personality, decision-making, and strategy in tense situations. Every character has their own goals and motivations and form a web of interpersonal relationships that intersect and collide with each other to form a rich, nuanced story where not everyone is able to get a happy ending. Inside the peaceful confines of the Isolated Society Study, competition, manipulation, and betrayal run rampant, and this is before the Golding Foundation intervenes, changing the rules of the game, and the fates of those 16 individuals trapped within it, forever...

Can you solve the mystery of the Golding Foundation, and dispel the facades that all 16 characters in this story use to mask their deepest, darkest secrets?

There are currently 5 chapters available to play with more actively in development.
