What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Since its Kickstarter, Edge of Eternity underwent through a lot of changes. As the scope of the project widened, also did our needs. As a result, we have hired a few more talented hands to help us deliver the project we envisioned. Edge of Eternity became even grander.

One notorious example of this is the Voice Acting : it wasn't our intention to dub the game at first, but as the storyline unfolded, we began eyeing each others like "wouldn't this scene be far more epic if it was voiced ?" - "Yes, it would." So we began expanding on that field, for outstanding results we can't wait to share with you.

As we conduct the remaining of our development within the boundaries we've set, we are still tempted to expand some additional features that would greatly overhaul the whole experience. Opening the game now to Early Access would help us unlock enough budget to add an additional layer of polish into the game, and insure it will be the best game we can possibly deliver.

Also having players giving us actual feedback about the game would help us immensely in nudging the game in the right direction. There is a certain amount of fine-tuning that heavily depends on individual feedbacks, and we feel that inviting the players into it is a desirable direction. The other reason why we are looking forward to collaborate with our community is the modding. We intend to make Edge of Eternity fully customizable and allow the players to plunge their hands right into it and experiment their own things. For that matter we intend to release a Modkit for Edge of Eternity in the next months for players to tinker with it.

This Modkit will need - just like the rest of the game - feedbacks from you. We have several guys on our team who were modders themselves and who deeply value modding as a practice and feel it has a real added value to a game.

In short, we need as much feedback as we can gather, and we think actual players are the best persons to know what they like or not.

For all of those reasons, we felt that Early Access is a sound choice, especially considering our actual state of the development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Though we're making progress we can't precisely pinpoint how much time we need to output the final product. You have heard that a lot, we wager, but we prefer to be upfront on that rather than give an inconsiderate answer.”

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

“Though many of the game core features are already implemented, most of the written storyline hasn't been yet. As the Early Access unfolds, so will Edge of Eternity's story (not unlike an anime season, actually.) On regular basis, new chapters of the story will be unlocked, allowing you to continue the story.

In between these new chapters, you will still have access to the game's open-world, where you can accomplish side-quests, explore, find interesting nooks and crannies et experiment different builds with your characters.

During the Early Access, much of the game will evolve. The additions will be numerous, from new spells, monsters, loot, to larger one : new region to explore, new side-quests, etc. For instance, the actual introduction to the game is not the final one. Another example : at some point of the development, a Coliseum will open in the game, and with it, you'll be able to tackle great challenges and explore the many deep aspects of Edge of Eternity combat system.

As you can see, we have many things in the wraps for the months to come, and we are excited to share this new step of our adventure with you.
We sincerely hope that you will enjoy playing Edge of Eternity’s Early Access!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At the beginning of the Early Access, the game will include from 10 to 20 hours of content (depending if you are a completionist or not.) As far as the development is concerned this is the emerged part of the iceberg.

We are further than that when it comes to sheer content (storyline, assets, cities, environment, quests, etc.) but these parts are still lacking the proper polish to be playable right away. We have a time schedule that includes the release the new content every two months - three for the meatiest updates.”

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

“For now our intend is to have a fixed price for Early Access, and a different price on release.”

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

“We think that Early Access makes a game a living thing. It has been proved again and again, all games are ultimately better with an Early Access : players and devs talk with each other, the game evolves in real-time. The history of its development in not a thing to be hidden behind curtains, it becomes a public thing - a group endeavour.

For instance we might be releasing some kind of seasonal content - or suggest some WIP ideas, some quests, some events that won’t necessarily be in the final game. These kind of one-thing content - and how you respond to it - will allow us to have a better understanding of what is fun, what could be improved and what kind of additions would be awesome for Edge of Eternity.

But again one of the biggest reason of the early access remains the feedback. The game, as well as its modkit - the Eternal Forge - will greatly evolve during the development. To that purpose we will need every feedback we can get. Whether they are about the general feeling of the game, the difficulty, the features, the combats, the design, the storyline or the Eternal Forge, we will need them.

And this is why we need you. Edge of Eternity is not only our RPG, it is also yours.”

Early Access Coming December 5th - The work done so far

Not much time left before the Early Access. Our hearts are pounding with excitement - with a few ectopic beat here and there - at the perspective of the release.

But before we get ahead of ourselves, let's take a few moments to go back in time. Let us drop that controller down, take a hot cup of cocoa... and reminisce.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wq-rXsVQFY

It was February, 15th 2015. That day, we launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to raise additional funds for Edge of Eternity - the feedback and participation of our 4,045 backers was nothing short of amazing.

We were already determined to make Edge of Eternity awesome, but the Kickstarter community kicked up our ambitions even higher. This wasn't just "a J-RPG made by a few fans of the genre" anymore: thanks to the resonating success of this crowdfunding, it became something greater.

It was a love letter to the genre, yes, but also much more. It was not just "our" project anymore, it became something... else, something bigger than what we envisioned. The funds were a big help, of course, but the support we got, the kind words, the remarks, and the interest were what pushed us forward the most.

So we began working on it, iterating, improving the game, the gameplay, the story...

And...

The characters,


The environment,


The creatures,


The combat system


And pretty much everything.

When we look back at it, the amount of work accomplished is daunting. If we had been confronted with the final product several years back, we don't know if (and how) we could’ve pull it off.

But this is not about patting ourselves on the back: we're not there yet. And there is still a lot of work to do. It's been almost four years since the Kickstarter, and now we will begin the Early Access period. We are confident that, with the help of the community, we will be able to improve the game to new heights - more than we did during these past years.

It will be a new stage of development, one that will be made hand-in-hand with the players - and this is probably what we're looking forward the most.

On more down-to-earth news, we must also announce that we are postponing the Early Access date to December the 5th. We are going through the last stretch of polishing and want to insure that the game - even though it is still in EA - will be as enjoyable as it can be.
