What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I'm extremely passionate about making retro stylized games that are not only fun to play, but that have deep, emotional story-lines. Terra is an extension of myself, a projection of me in game form. I grew up getting lost in huge worlds within the RPGs of the golden era and have been in love with classic RPGs ever since.

I want to give the community a chance to enjoy the world of Terra during the development stage. During early access, the game world will be updated constantly, new content and detail will be added on a regular basis. I want to tease you with Terra while it's in development.

I would love the community to help! I'm not asking you to make the game for me, I'll do that part. But jump on board, play Terra, explore, tell me what felt good, what didn't fit. And help me craft a truly nostalgic role playing game.
Your feedback is important to me.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I originally estimated that Terra would be in early access for around 6 months, this has not been the case for the following reason.
The game is now bigger, more content is available and will continue to be added until completion.
Rather than just pulling all the content from the broken c# build. I've remade a lot of the artwork, added new story line branches, new towns etc”

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

“The full version of Terra will feature updated locations, quests, side quests, weapons, equipment, characters, monsters, items etc
Terra is a 2d, 16-bit RPG, but set in a huge almost open world scale. During the early access, the game world will be constantly updated and added to. The final version will use the same graphics, though a lot will be more polished.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Terra is mid beta and pretty much completely stable, a few bugs may occur. Please be patient with me.”

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

“Yes, if you buy Terra during the early access, you will get the full game at release.
The full release will have a slightly higher price, so you'll be saving some money!”

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

“During the early access, the game world will be constantly updated and added to. I would love the community to give me feedback on the world of Terra. Help me shape the world of Terra by letting me know what you love, hate and would love to see added to the world!

I will posting discussions regularly to discuss Terra with the community, you can tell me what you loved, what didn't work. Or just shout at me, whatever you feel like. No swears though.....”
