What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“For finishing (game balance correction and polishing game features) the game nothing matters like the opinions of our players. We have seen many times that gamers were helping other projects to develop and evolve, so we want you to support our project in the same way – together we’ll make Linch even better than it could be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Linch will be in an early access until year 2019.”

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

“Full version of the game will provide upgraded interface and convenient menu.

- Enhanced game balance and game mechanics

- Drastically new location and heroes, sound and other constituents of our game

- More weaponry, new animations will be even more vivid and diverse.

- You will have an ability to choose an animation for every card and make your own deck consisting of these.

- Every player will have trophy corner behind him showing his rewards, achievements and trophies.

- Customization! Choose some clothes, tattoos, hair and many many other things!

- More cruelty and carnage. We’ll add “x-ray” feature (so you can see how opponent’s bones break from your cruel moves).

- More interaction with the environment.

- New cards and bonuses. Lots of them!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“This is a low-budget version of what we want to make. But, nevertheless, the game is now fully playable and enjoyable. At the current moment, Linch is a multiplayer card game with lots of animations. Two players compete with each other in train's coupe, watching by a croupier. The one who loses all his health is a loser, because each misplayed card leads to a cruel punishment.
Firstly, we would like to add rating features and encourage players for their achievements, so every player will be motivated to be the best. And players’ opinions will help us to improve sound, balance, performance and any other things you need!”

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

“We won’t raise price of our game so much.”

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

“Linch community can provide feedback in many aspects. Since it’s our first project, gamers’ opinion is very valuable for us, we want to know what you want to see in our game and if we need to develop it at all. We will take all of these into account and follow your dreams.”
