What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

We want to add more content and features to the full version of the game!

For example, we have an idea to make the second chapter of the adventures of archaeologist John in the location of mysterious Egipt pyramid. With lots of new unique riddles. We want to add an in-game level editor so that players can create their own brain-building puzzles to share it. We also will finalize GUI and the game sound components.

But for the implementation of all our ideas we need time. In the meantime, we expect that players will rate our work, leave some feedback about their gaming experience.

In order to make your game experience better, we need your feedback on early access version of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

We plan to release the full version in the first half of 2018.”

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

First, we are already working on the second chapter of the adventures of archaeologist John. The second chapter will operate in the mysterious Egyptian pyramid. We want to make the gameplay and the riddles of the second chapter as original as possible!

Secondly, we couldn’t pay enough attention to the musical component, and this is very important for an interesting and exciting game. So we’re planning some improvements.

Third, is the level editor. For those love to create puzzles by himself, we want to add a built-in level editor with assets from all chapters.

Fourth, want to integrate support for Steam, so that your game progress is never lost. And of course Steam achievements and cards.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

The current version can offer you a completely finished first chapter consisting of 18 levels with the increasing complexity. The first chapter unfold in a medieval castle, where press plates, closed doors, teleports and death traps prevent you from reaching the ancient treasures.

In each level you’ll see some short cut-scenes, through which we’ll unfold an amusing story with right morality. Also you’ll see a colorful, hand-drawn comics before the first and after the last levels.”

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

We plan slightly increase game price after the release of the final version.”

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

Since there are only two people work on the game, we will be very grateful for your feedback. New ideas, new locations, new puzzles, new mechanics - everything that the players find interesting and useful for the game. We will necessarily consider and try to make it by the time of release.

We hope that the game will give you a lot of fun!
