What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“After a long development cycle and much consideration, we have decided to go the Early Access route in order to get a complete story into the hands of players who have been following us for a long time. Launching now will allow our followers to take an active role in developing a massive world and give us the flexibility to continually create new content without holding the game back from the community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Though we have been in Early Access for several years now, several major overhauls of the game's primary engine, IDE upgrades, and changes to the main plot of the game will delay full release until an undetermined date. Hopefully from the time of this update (September 2022) we will be less than a year from full release.”

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

“When the game is fully released, our aim is to add non-essential side quest content to the world. We plan to improve the ship combat and boarding systems and add more lore and magic.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, Levantera has rudimentary but working versions of the core game features. Platforming action, overworld ship combat and ship boarding, dialogue-based quest system and quest logs, spellbook and spellcasting abilities, main and sub-weapon swapping, inventory and crew management elements are all present in the current version.
The primary story arc is complete, but there are still bugs, glitches, freezes, and missing pieces. Putting the game into many players hands will help us more effectively identify and fix errors.”

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

“Pricing at full release should be about 20% higher than the Early Access version.”

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

“The community hub will be the primary point of content for players and developers alike. We intend to implement fixes and suggestions as quickly as possible and provide new builds at intervals.”

“A Sea Worthy NES style game...”
Indie Retro News

“Recreating the NES colour palette often results in accurately hideous games. Levantera is an outlier that succeeds in looking the part aesthetically, not just chromatically. It also succeeds in approximating “retro” controls without feeling obstructive or gratuitous.”
