What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is still in development. Many things that had been planned are still being discussed and not in the game yet. The story that you can see so far is incomplete and more of a prequel, so to speak. There are many bugs to be fixed yet. The game itself is nothing more than an alpha as of now, which itself means that it's not ready.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game shall be in an early access for as long as the work on it is not at least half-finished. It's impossible to set up the exact release day, because it's being worked on slowly but steadily. The progress might get a boom in one moment, and be postponed in another, because everyone gets tired once in a while. So, the game might be in early access for a few months, or a year, or even more.”

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

“The current episode is going to be thoroughly reworked and extended, so it can be called a real game. Of course, a lot of bugs is going to be fixed, for example, an unstable path-finder system for the player and the monsters. New monsters and spells shall be added.

As of now, the game is still missing one of its most important mechanics - the random events. They shall be added as well. The story is going to be extended as well, but it's a bit too early to be talking about that. Right now, the gameplay part has the highest priority.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version is an incomplete, but still pretty much playable game, with the beginning and ending. It's not long, but has a lot of hidden things.

As of now, the player can access 5 playable levels, connected by a story line, 3 spells and 5 types of monsters. There are some animation bugs. Steam Overlay is not working correctly. (which we have no idea how to fix)

As of the game mechanics that are already in the game, there is a psychic health system, but the random events are still missing. Also, there are the secret options "soptions", that allow the player to set up the game to satisfy their personal taste.”

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

“After the full release, the price will be doubled.”

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

“The community feedback is really important to us during the development. Different players have different views on the same things in the game, and the ideas of making those things better might actually lead to adding new things into the game, the things that we didn't even think of before. And those things will surely make the game even more different and interesting.”

Why has there been no Halloween update?

For the last few days I've been asked by the people who keep a close eye on the game development: why has there been no special update for Halloween? I'll try to give you a short and simple answer, so noone is left wondering.

Originally, there's been a plan to release a small update that would change the main menu screen and add a Halloween-themed level. But I simply haven't had enough time for making that small idea come to life. That's because our resources are focused on the development of the Golden Rogue in order to be able to release it before the year ends. Moreover, in the new version of D' there are a few features from Beta-1 that is just not ready to be released yet.

So, my friends, you have to be patient. Quite soon the things will get really cool. And it doesn't matter that there's no Halloween event - there will be plenty eventually!
