Why Early Access?

“When we were choosing between early access and kickstarter, we decided that the most honest choice would be early access. Why? When you are buying our game unlike kickstarter you immediately receive a stable build with the ability to test the game. You see where you invested your money.

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“For us, early access is needed to make sure that players are interested, and as soon as we receive
feedbacks, we will make more content for the game and then release the game from early access. According to our calculations, this will be not more than a year.”

- More types of enemies (ranged enemies, elite warriors, bosses)

-5 levels to fight
-8 weapons
-2 type of enemies”

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

Development is going!

Hello!
In firstly I want to say thanks to people who support my game, this news for you! I am here to tell about current game progress!
Development of my game is going and I have a lot of plans and things to do in Zanshin, this game is not abandoned and won't be. The game had a raw start but it's not stopped me. Also I know that some people complain about the high price and little content, and I want to say that this price will not change, not because I want to "steal" money or something, but because I will make more and more updates to make this price not even normal, but really low for this amount of content that will be in Zanshin! Thanks for the patience, soon there is will be a new update with more content, new gameplay features, bosses, with supporting new platforms, and a lot of cool stuff! If you want to support me and my game you can just leave feedback on steam, it's will be a great help for Zanshin!
Thanks for supporting, see you soon!
