What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are a very small team and making a real time strategy game is not easy. So, we want to see whether people are loving this game or not; to decide if we need to invest more time into the game and develop it further beyond the specified goals.

Because Art of Guile focuses on multiplayer gameplay, we want to make further developments while utilizing players' feedback. Also, we are totally aware that Art of Guile has not enough content to call it as a full game. Furthermore, because our testing capacity is limited, early access will help us to make our game fully stable thanks to other players' testing while gaming.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“3-6 months. But it is just a plan.”

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

We are planning to add:
  • One more faction
  • Small campaign
  • Support for more languages (Turkish, French)

    We are planning to improve:

  • AI
  • Pathfinding
  • Automatch and ranking system.

    Also we are trying to make more fun and stable game.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Art of Guile is playable in both multiplayer and singleplayer. The game consists of 1 faction with 6 different maps and 2 distinct game modes. It has AI with 4 diffuculty level. It has also a Map Editor and the game is open to the modding community as it uses mainstream file formats(like PNG) as ingame resources. Art of Guile is mostly stable according to our tests. But some instabilities may occur on different PC specifications.”

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

“We are not planning to change the price during early access. But afterwards, if we manage to achieve our goals, we plan to increase the price.”

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

“Community will report the bugs, make suggestions and we are trying solve these bugs, make Art of Guile more fun game. So we are waiting for all kind of feedback.

Please just write what you think. But please be specific as far as you can.”
