What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Roses and Gems is being released in early access so that it might be refined as a single player experience, before multiplayer is introduced and the game is released. There's no point in fully developing a game, then having to make major changes afterwards when you could fix mistakes before they arise.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game is planned to be in early access until the final part of the content is done and multiplayer is functional. This is expected to take two to three months.”

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

“The full version is planned to have more content and multiplayer added. Hopefully, with the help of early access, the gameplay will be better off as well.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, Roses and Gems is a playable (bar a few bugs) single player game. It has many ways to build traps, it has five enemy types, an underground area to explore, an excessive amount of difficulties and a 'final' boss. Currently there is no way to win the game, this may or may not be changed in a later update or final release, depending on how players feel about it.”

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

“After early access, the price will see an increase of roughly 50%.”

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

“Other than bug reporting and stress testing the game on different systems, I hope to have the community suggesting new content to be added to the game, as well as helping with making the gameplay more enjoyable.”

About This Game

Roses and Gems is a game all about avoiding the inevitable, Death. Build up your fort, castle, or small shack and wait for night time where horrid 'harmless' critters come,destroy your home, and kill you. Then start all over again! As you get better at making traps and fighting, you'll survive longer. Will you dig underground for better materials, or just stick with wood and stone constructs? Will you prioritise trading, or having a flawless defense system? In the end you'll die either way, your home destroyed and demolished, but what you do until then is up to you!

Fighting not your thing? Build traps! Traps not your thing? Slash and bash your way through enemies and show those silly intellectual trap builders what true power is! In the end, you have two goals, protect yourself and the machine. Legend says if the machine is destroyed, the world will explode! Kinda sucks that legends are always true, doesn't it?
