What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“It’s important for me to receive feedback from community, as it helps with setting correct priorities and making necessary adjustments and fixes.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“My current goal is to get the game out of Early Access within 2-3 years. I firmly believe that together with you we can create a great game.”

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

“I plan to improve and fill the game based on community feedback. In addition, here are plans to expand the world with new areas that will include more resources, enemies and bosses, which in turn means more recipes for crafting, items, weapons and armor.
There are also plans to add a settlement that will need to be rebuilt and will house many different NPCs that you can trade with and complete their quests.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At this stage, the mechanics of farming, building a base, trading, a combat system and several bosses have been implemented. The game also has several regions to explore.”

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

“Yes, the price will be gradually increased as i fill the game with new content and mechanics.”
