What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We'll launch the game on Early Access to let our players have fun as soon as possible. We also want to develop the game with our players' feedback and suggestions. We want to take this path with players so that the game will reach a much better place at the end.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The plan is to release the full game within 4 months. This is the timeline we decided on to add all the features we planned in the beginning and make it an even better game.”

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

“There'll be lots of content added to the game with the full version even though the Early Access contains lots of fun. We plan to add more exploration elements, boss fights, new rewarding features to expanding borders and a lot more content!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All the gameplay is completed with all the details and fun! You can bring peasants to your camp, train them to become military or utility units, craft walls/towers to defend from the evil, hunt for the gold, automate gold income by building farms, automate peasant recruiting, assault the enemy and lots more! There'll be more content in the future and we'll shape the game around players' feedback.”

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

“The price will increase once the full version is released. We want to show our appreciation to those players who support us from day 1. Thanks a lot!”

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

“We listen to every feedback from players. We have an official Discord server where we discuss the game with our players. We also constantly check Steam discussions. Players can give us feedback and suggestions via these options. Since we're going to launch early, we expect our players to report all kinds of bugs, and give us brilliant ideas that'll shape the game. We want to develop the game with our players.”
