What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Blade of the Netherworld has been a part of our hard work, and now we're ready to share the results of our first phase with you! We look forward to working with players to develop and refine the game in Early Access and in the future! We hope that the addition of the community will help us build the perfect version. We're listening to every player in the community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“First of all, it will depend on the feedback we collect from our players. At present, we plan to launch the official version of the game in 3-5 months. We firmly believe that our games will live up to the time and money invested by our players, and will continue to be fun and enjoyable for everyone to come.”

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

“The core gameplay elements of Blade of the Netherworld itself are already able to provide a complete gaming experience. However, we plan to continue to improve, add and tweak the in-game content during the Early Access phase based on feedback from the community. In addition to this, we will be significantly expanding the gameplay along the way, including new items, new scenarios, and new enemies. This means you'll have new items to collect, new enemies, and new locations to explore. The new items will also allow you to explore more of the game, and we'll be making one or two new game modes based on player feedback”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Check out the 'About this game' section to see what the game has covered so far. We believe that the Early Access version of the game will be able to provide you with a lot of fun for a long time. To ensure this, we will continue to polish and balance the game.”

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

“At the moment, we have no plans to increase the price of the game in the official version, but we also think that if we update the game in a large enough way and have enough content, we will increase the price of the game slightly, and it is reasonable to increase the price after the official version. More importantly, it will allow us to continue to develop the game based on player feedback.”

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

“In our opinion, it is important to gather and listen to the opinions of the player community. We'll continue to collect player feedback through Discord servers, social channels, Steam forums, and dedicated in-game features. We hope that Black and White Sword and White will be a game that players will love and share with their friends, and we hope that more and more players will participate in our game design!”
