What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We care what our players think and feel that the best way to make games is to include them in the development process. We are hoping to build a core, passionate community here on Steam during Early Access that can help us make sure our game is as good as it can be. We truly appreciate the support and feedback we will be given and look forward to collaborating with you!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are hard at work and hope to launch the final game in several months time. We just have to finish the last of the Moon Isles levels and a couple new mechanics related to them, finish the free unlockable Desert Barrens quest pack, polish some art and vfx, localization, and optimize the game's performance to run as well as possible. Your feedback is very important to making sure we get it right!

It is also important to mention that we are a very experienced team and know how to ship quality games. If you would like to know more about the team and company, please visit our website to learn more about the people behind the game - About Us: https://www.greyborn.com/studio/

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

“The following features that will be in the final version of the game include:
  • The final levels of the Moon Isles quest (60 in total)
  • The Desert Barrens quest (unlockable free with Stars and very challenging)
  • New puzzle mechanics and enemy
  • Localization to multiple languages
  • More achievements, trading cards, cloud saves, etc.
  • Performance improvements and visual/audio polish

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“What is in the Early Access version of the game is fairly completed and stable. You can play the first 40 levels of the first quest currently and it has been setup to be able to continue forward as we release the final levels without restarting.”

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

“We currently have a lower price for Early Access. We will be raising the price by at least 33% once the final game ships. Final price is TBD. Now is a great time to buy and save!”

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

“We are very excited to get feedback from the community on how to best balance and polish the game for final release. Greyborn Studios is looking forward to building a community with a close collaborative relationship with our players for years to come. We thank you in advance for your support and interest in our game and company!”
