What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As an indie game development team with only several members and no commercial funding, we have to find our ways to keep the team going, especially when we have worked on *The Scroll of Taiwu* for three years already. During this long journey of game development, We hope to keep our most honest and original ideas and wills, but it is obviously not possible to achieve on our own. Therefore, Releasing an Early Access is our best option here. It will help us in many ways: keeping our team alive, helping us improve the game in a better way, and finding people who want to help us with development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“*The Scroll of Taiwu* has a relatively big framework and rich content. From the very beginning, we wish to create a game world that we can keep expanding and enriching. Therefore, the game will be in Early Access for quite a long time (at least 12 months), depending on how satisfied the players are to the mechanics and content we currently have.”

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

“After we get the help we need with the Early Access, the complete version of *The Scroll of Taiwu* will have a much better performance, more beautiful graphics, more delightful music, support for different languages, and most importantly, richer content.

Since we designed *The Scroll of Taiwu* as a "sandbox" game that can be easily expanded and enriched, comparing to the Early Access, we wish our players will have a much more complete and wonderful experience in this "huge world" of Wuxia, Chinese mythology, and gaming in the final version.

In addition, we have a lot of plans and ideas for the future development. For example, we want to add in a multiplayer version so players from all over the world can interact in this virtual universe; we might also design more game modes to fully show the beauty of Chinese culture.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have already spent three years on development and invited some friends to try our game before releasing the Early Access version. It has been such a relief for us that most of them spent more than 40 hours playing it.

Although this is definitely not enough in our perspective, we think the current version will be able to show the "hardcore gamers" the style, genre, mechanics, and content of the game, we also believe that it will be recognized and supported by the players. Perhaps this is what really matters.

Therefore, even though the Early Access is not complete or perfect by any means, we are convinced that it is certainly playable and enjoyable.”

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

“After Early Access, the price might go up as the cost increases and more content is added in.”

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

“We appreciate any feedback from the community and will actively take your advice so we can adjust our plan for development. If we are lucky enough to have more people favor our game, we'll also actively consider interacting with the community in various ways.”
