What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I work alone on this game and the development takes time. The game is currently playable and has lot of contents. Early Access allows me to have the players feedback and improve the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“No idea. 3 months, 6 months, 1 year ... That will depend on player feedback.”

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

“The final version offers additional content (new missions, new equipment ...) will be rebalanced and will have fewer bugs.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version is almost full :
– 6 ages from prehistoric age to industrial age.
– 7 playable races.
– 270 items.
– 72 skills.
– 55 buildings.
– 24 resources to collect and transform.
– 20 missions with 6 difficulty levels.
– a skirmish mode to fight up to 8 villages.
– a custom survival mode to fight off unlimited waves of monsters.
– 43 maps.”

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

“No, the price will remain the same.”

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