What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Here is a list of the main reasons that led us to release the game in early access:
  • Creating an RPG with a captivating story and deep characters requires time and care. Early access allows us to develop the world of Alvara at our own pace, taking your feedback into account and refining the narrative experience.
  • The main mechanics of the game, typical of an RPG, are already in place and offer you rich and engaging gameplay. However, the player's experience is essential, and your feedback allows us to enhance the gameplay.
  • The world of Alvara is vast and filled with mysteries. Early access allows you to start exploring this world and become familiar with its inhabitants, its history, and its secrets. However, your feedback will help us improve the exploration of the world, clarify points that are still obscure, and ultimately offer the best possible gaming experience.
  • As an early access player, you have the opportunity to share your impressions and suggestions with us. Your feedback is invaluable and will help us shape the final version of the game, which is essential for us in developing such a game!

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

The final version of Alvara is currently scheduled for 2025.

However, it is important to note that this date is an estimate and is subject to change. Developing a video game is a complex process, and many factors can influence the final release date.
We are committed to regularly communicating with our community and keeping you informed about the progress of development. You can follow our progress on the game's Discord. https://discord.gg/pN9cJtGS5V.”

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

“The final version of Alvara will offer a much more complete and immersive experience compared to the early access version, in several key areas:
  • The final version will reveal the entire story of Alvara, its twists, secrets, and conclusion. You will discover the fate of the characters and the intricacies of the Alvara universe.
  • New cutscenes, dialogues, and narrative elements will enrich the story and immerse you even deeper into the game's universe.
  • A better-paced progression: The story progression will be refined to offer a smoother and more captivating narrative experience.
  • Existing game mechanics will be polished and balanced to provide a more fluid and rewarding experience.
  • The game's difficulty will be adjusted to offer a challenging but accessible experience for all players.
  • New areas will be added to the game map, significantly increasing the exploration area and the variety of environments.
  • New characters, side quests, items, and secrets will be hidden throughout the game world to provide a richer and more immersive experience.
  • The game's graphics and sound environment will be refined to offer a better visual and auditory experience.
  • The final version will benefit from meticulous bug fixes and technical optimizations to provide a more stable and smooth gaming experience.
  • We have taken into account the feedback and suggestions from players throughout the early access and will continue to do so to shape the final version of Alvara.
In summary, the final version of Alvara will offer a much more complete, immersive, and polished experience than the early access version. We are excited to share the fruits of our labor with you and let you experience the full adventure of Alvara!”

Note that the version is written in French and that the translation, despite all the efforts we make, may not meet your expectations. If you can, play the game in French, otherwise, feel free to join our Discord to participate in the translation of the game!

While the final version promises an even more complete and immersive experience, early access already offers you an excellent preview of what Alvara will be.

Feel free to join us on Steam and share your impressions!”

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

“Yes, the price of Alvara will gradually increase during early access.
Here’s why:
  • Continuous development: The early access price of Alvara reflects the current content and features available in the game. As we add new environments, characters, game mechanics, and story chapters, the overall value of the game increases.
  • Transparency and fairness: We want players who join the adventure in early access to be rewarded for their support and contribution to the game’s development. Therefore, they will benefit from a more advantageous price compared to those who purchase the game after its official release.
  • A complete and rich game: The final version of Alvara will offer a much more complete and rich gaming experience than the early access version, with dozens of hours of content to explore.
We are confident that the final price of Alvara will faithfully reflect the value of the complete gaming experience we offer.”

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

“Community involvement has been at the heart of Alvara’s development since the beginning of our journey. We believe that player feedback and suggestions are essential to creating a game that meets their expectations and offers a unique gaming experience.
Here are some concrete examples of our community involvement:
  • Regular playtests: We regularly organize playtests to allow players to test new game features and share their impressions with us.
  • Accessible beta version: A beta version of the game is available, allowing players to explore a more advanced version of the game and help us identify the final bugs and issues before the official release.
  • Active Discord server: We have a dedicated Alvara Discord server where players can discuss the game, share their ideas and suggestions, and receive help from our team and other players. https://discord.gg/pN9cJtGS5V
  • Transparent communication: We regularly communicate with the community about the progress of development, new game features, and upcoming events.
Community involvement is a fundamental pillar of our development philosophy. We are convinced that by working closely with players, we can create an exceptional game that meets their expectations and immerses them in an unforgettable adventure.

Feel free to join our community on Discord and share your ideas and suggestions with us.”

About This Game

STORY


Immerse yourself in Alvara, a forgotten land at the heart of the Vat, the infinite universe. This RPG with mechanics inspired by the classics of the genre offers an innovative narrative experience and an immersive system of choices. Every decision you make will shape Alvara's destiny and influence her story.

Forge your own adventure in this rich, captivating world, where every choice has real, tangible consequences. Explore varied environments, meet fascinating characters and make crucial decisions that will determine Alvara's fate.

You are Zoltae, an orphaned warrior from Bazzya. Your tormented past and uncertain future plunge you into an epic quest where every choice will determine the fate of Alvara, the lost land. Will you save Alvara from the darkness that threatens it, or doom its inhabitants to a bleak future?

Discover how your past and future are intimately linked to the history of Alvara, and influence the world in which you live.
