What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I want to use Early Access as a tool to get the best feedback from players. It is often the players who have the best ideas for what should or should not be in a game. I want to involve the players as much as I can.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until we have a finished game. When I'm happy with it and the fans are happy with it.”

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

“SÆLIG currently is not feature complete and there is still a lot of stuff to add over the course of early access. As the game is in active development everything is subject to change, and some things may not be added at all.

The main features that I would like to add before the game is complete:
  • Many maps which are unlocked and changed based on the current state of war
  • New mission types (trading, assassinations, rescues, sabotage)
  • More end-game content
  • Viking raids and war events
  • Adventures and lots to discover
  • Perks

There has also been talk about some kind of multiplayer, but I cannot promise this.

I recommend only buying the game if you’re interested in playing it in its current state. Hopefully you’ll find lots to love.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

Currently you can do all of the following:
  • Choose between four maps to play on
  • Create a character
  • Buy and build houses and businesses
  • Upgrade and manage buildings
  • Produce goods
  • Form relationships
  • Get married
  • Have children
  • Commit crimes
  • Trade goods
  • Explore in first person
  • Do basic trade missions
  • Apply for different positions of power
  • Buy land and develop it into different buildings
  • Get jobs at any of the businesses, including graveyard and learning hall
  • Learn skills and get better at things as you do them
  • Go hunting

Some of the current features and mechanics are yet to be fully fleshed out and will slowly change as the game develops.”

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

“The early access price will be lower than the final price.”

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

“I want the community to help decide on new features, and how some things should work. A small test group was able to help shape the game in a massive way. I want to continue this with a larger community.”

About This Game


(Old English: blessed, fortunate, prosperous, happy)


880 A.D.
England.

SÆLIG is a game that blends together elements of simulation, strategy, RPG, and business management. Centred around the life of you and your family, you must try to survive and bring wealth and prosperity to your household. Set in Dark Ages England, you will enter the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Wessex during a time of turmoil where you will choose your path and do what you must to make your mark on the world around you, for generations to come.



There are many different ways you can approach the game, and ways you can play, including the following:
  • Start the game as an Employee, Travelling Trader, Landlord, Business Owner, Beggar, or just start with a house and some gold.
  • No matter how you start you can make your own path.
  • Find love, start a family and begin your dynasty.
  • Become an Abbot and run the church, or a guard captain and be above the law.
  • Get a job and go to work every day for a handful of coins.
  • Become a gravedigger and make your wage sending off the dead. Or maybe you want to be work at the Learning Hall and look after the village children.
  • Forage for supplies and sell them to market.
  • Trade between markets.
  • Buy huts and houses and rent them out.
  • Buy and run businesses to supply the town with much needed goods.
  • Buy land and develop it into new buildings to help the town grow.
  • Destroy the economy, start fires, hoard food, and watch the world burn.
  • Become a bit of a thug and steal your way to riches.

Some other key features
  • A living, breathing world, where each character is trying to survive and prosper.
  • Each character has their own life from start to finish and has the potential to shape the world around them, just like you.
  • Live through several generations – when you die, you can continue as one of your children.
  • Dynamic seasons and weather that affects the world around you.
  • Lots of different types of buildings to, build, purchase, and upgrade.
  • Fires and diseases have the potential to not only decimate your home, but also towns and villages all over the map.
  • Living economy - nothing simply exists, everything is made and consumed by the population.
  • A knowledge system where most actions can be improved on by doing them.

SÆLIG is a hobby project and is currently in Early Access, which means it is still under development, is not feature complete, and there can be bugs. But I love this game and I love what I'm doing with it. I hope you can join me on this journey and have a great time playing.
