Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to involve the gaming community more while finalizing our game. And there's no better way to involve the community than to let gamers from all over the world play our game and help finalize it together with us for everyone’s satisfaction.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate that it will be only a few months before all the kinks are ironed out and everything is fine-tuned and ready to go.”

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

“It will be a full-fledged game without any bugs and exactly according to the wishes of our community.

Full version of the game will bring:
  • Assault NPC - Knight
  • The ability to attack and destroy enemy camps
  • Side quests - to add replay value
  • Enhanced mechanics in the winter
  • Improved translations of texts
  • We are also open to other improvements based on the feedback from our players.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is in the final stage of development where the latest details will be fine-tuned and there is room for possible improvements of some of the game mechanics”.

In the current game version, you'll find a full-featured game campaign with tasks where you can unlock bonuses in the form of customized avatars or extra items for a smoother and more enjoyable gaming experience.

The game also offers a variety of avatars, mounts, and other customizable items.
Moreover, there is a full-featured island editor where you can share your creations with your friends.

You can currently do everything in the game as described in "About this game" (See below).

The game does not currently include the ability to attack and destroy enemy camps. But this does not hinder the overall gameplay or the ability to complete the main campaign.”

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

“The price of the game will likely increase after the full release.”

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

“We would like to use the community for:
Fine-tuning the final game content.
Modifying or improving gaming elements.
Finding and fixing hidden bugs.
Fine-tuning inaccuracies in translations.

Everybody is encouraged to get involved. If you’re interested, please contact us at Steam Forums (we prefer this option most), our Facebook page, Twitter or Discord

Update 0.55.001 - 002



Hello everyone,

so we have the first week of the game available to the public.
We want to thank you and your support.

And also we ask you to leave a small review here on Steam - it's really crucial for the game, and the game needs more than 50 reviews from Steam buyers (not from keys - Humble Store etc.). Otherwise, Steam will stop showing it to new potential customers (which happened yesterday). Therefore, if you find a time, we will be very happy.
We will certainly welcome also reviews from key (if you bought the game outside of the steam or obtained another way).

We are still focusing on minor fixes or language support (depending on how our fans come to us and offer translation assistance).

And we follow your comments and ideas.

Above all, we want to thank the "Alis" fan who create into proofreading of the Japanese translation. We have implemented this proofreading, although the final translation is still in production. So perhaps this tiny proofreading will come in handy for some Japanese players.

0.55.001 - 002
  • Added support for the Portuguese language (still subject to final proofreading).
  • Added translations of Achievement for Portuguese.
  • Japanese language proofreading - it's not a final translation.

Here is a summary of all the previous mini edits (we didn't create a notify for these small hotfixes):
0.54.001 - 007
  • Fixed the issue when the native resolution was a little unique/non-standard this has caused a bad reading of the game's global settings.
  • Modified mouse cursor behavior in software support.
  • Added an option to enable hardware mouse cursor support (in settings - graphics section)
  • Fixed issue with "Bloom Off" settings - now correctly turn off any blurring of the image.
  • The game is already running in the background.
  • Pet now collects coins faster.
  • The island code is already correctly displayed in the pause menu (when the island was created via the editor).
  • Fixing NPC behavior if there is a problem with their position on the map - NPCs no longer travel to water;)
  • Fixed problem with wall price on Hard difficulty.
  • Fixing a trader's behavior - if his camp is too far from the city center.
  • Fixed issue with correct day setting for changing seasons.
  • Fixed a small bug with spawn new animals.
  • Added support for Korean language.
  • Added support for the Italian language.
  • Added support for the Turkish language.
  • Corrections in Spain translation.
  • Added translations of Achievement for Turkish.
  • Added translations of Achievement for Korean.
  • Some proofreader of a German translation.
  • Some proofreader of a English translation.
  • Some proofreader of a Spain translation.

Enjoy the game!

And if you like our game, don't forget to write a small review here on Steam;)

Thanks a lot.

Known issue
In the game, there is a sharp decline in FPS if you have more than 50-80 archers.
We know about this problem - and we know how to solve it (but it is a big hit that can not be done from day to day). This drop in FPS does not, however, fundamentally interfere with the basic playability of the game.

About This Game

The Wild Age is a micromanagement strategy game with tower defense gameplay mechanics. The game is designed mainly for a peaceful and relaxed gaming experience that offers a break from the busy realities of life.



In the game, you take on the role of the new ruler, who is tasked with creating a new, fully independent settlement on several islands.

It is necessary to hire villagers and fulfill the main task for each island. However, it will not be easy, as every night enemy goblins attack your settlement, thus hindering your efforts. As a ruler, you can only give orders using a single raw currency in the game (coins). Your villagers carry out the tasks and their roles according to your decisions: repairing/constructing buildings, harvesting materials, hunting animals and guarding the walls.

Meeting the goal is not always easy and you have plenty of options to develop your strategy.
Completing main tasks in the main campaign will unlock special rewards for smoother passage throughout the game.

YOUR CHARACTER


  • There are several avatars and mounts available.
  • Each avatar and mount has different attributes that will change your approach to the game.
  • Several kinds of unlockable pets will follow and aid you throughout the campaign.
  • Ability to customize coins, the coin bag and the coat of arms of the settlement.
  • To unlock some options, it is necessary to complete the main tasks of the campaign.
  • It is possible to edit the avatar settings at any point in the game.

YOUR HELPERS


  • Builder - builds and improves buildings.
  • Forester - chops trees and clears wooded locations to further expand your settlement.
  • Farmer – provides a stable supply of coins before the winter comes.
  • Archer - hunts wild animals during the day and defends your settlement at night. Archers can change their positions and adapt to the defend the settlement.
  • Knight (soon - not available now) - defends archers and is able to follow the leader during the attack on goblin bases.

YOUR DECISION

  • Ability to cancel an action already entered.
  • Ability to destroy an already built structure.
  • Ability to change your character and mount.
  • Ability to create an island according to your ideas and share with your friends.

The Wild Age is inspired by the "Kingdom" game series, and we do not intend to keep this a secret. At first glance, it may be a mere conversion of the game into 3D, but the opposite is true.
From our point of view, it is as more about the evolution of a very interesting concept which deserves further development.

We want to offer players the similar gameplay but enriched with new features which we find interesting and beneficial for the game as a whole.

Game elements we want to gradually implement into the game:

  • Knight (as NPC)
  • The ability to attack enemy camps
  • Side quests
  • Fine-tuning and polished text translations
