What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our goal is to involve our community as much as possible in the evolution of the game. We think that the current state of the game can bring hours of fun to the players so we think that now is the moment to release it.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“That will depend on the feedback we receive and on the number of changes
we will have to make to the game. We are planning for a period of 3-4 months,
but we can extend that time if needed.”

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

“▪ More story and dialog element
▪ Additional cutscenes
▪ Achievements
▪ More balance and less bugs
▪ Plus difficulty level
▪ Additional heroes”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is completely playable from start to finish, it is stable and the planned content bigger part is ready. Please see the "About This" section for details.”

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

“Yes. We would like to thank all the players supporting us on early access period, so price during Early Access will be lower than when the game leaves Early Access and is officially released.”

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

“We want to improve the quality of the game by watching player’s Let’s Plays, reading player’s reviews, emails, messages on social networks and forums. We will analyse this feedback and compile a list of what needs to be done, and use this to determine what we can improve.”

Cave chapter places are also done.

New hex type: Reveal. It reveals adjacent hexes.

A new enemy type: Poisonous insect. It can cast acid fog to nearby enemies.

Last chapters places and enemies.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned!

Hi there!
After long silence here is the next update. Worked on to improve new dungeon map mechanics, it took some time, but I think it became very good. Last week I uploaded a gameplay video with it.

Winter chapter level chooser and battle locations.

New hexa type: Vendor. You can trade items with him.

A new enemy: exploding bug. It will explode upon death or if it reach close enough to your heroes.
