What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We've decided to release Tabletop Playground in early access for a few reasons. Firstly, we believe the game is in a strong state, with all core features already in place for you to be able to create games with ease and share them with others around the world to play. However, we still have a lot of plans in the pipeline for Tabletop Playground and believe there are several features we want to add to the game before we'd consider it a full release.

As our community has grown we’ve had a lot of feedback and further suggestions for the game too, and expect to have many more once we release in early access that we’ll take into consideration.

Most importantly, we're a small team with limited capacity, so it’s going to take time to implement all these features while also releasing regular updates and bug fixes. But we want to get the game into your hands as soon as possible! Hence the decision to release Tabletop Playground in early access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect our early access period to run for six to twelve months, with regular updates and new features added regularly throughout that time. We plan to continue to support the game following it’s full release too of course with features and content, our early access period will be for adding features we consider integral for the core experience of Tabletop Playground.”

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

“During the early access period we plan to improve Tabletop Playground with a suite of new features and content. This ranges from further scripting features for creators, subtle but important tabletop gaming mechanics, quality of life improvements and optimization and plenty more.

Check out our early access development roadmap on Steam here.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The initial early access version for Tabletop Playground has all the core features required to get started creating games, sharing them with others and playing board games online with friends. There are several classic games included to play (Chess, Checkers, cards etc), tutorials on how to get started, and the in-game editor to edit your favorites games or create your own.

In fact, there will already be over a hundred games that you'll be able to download and play at the early access release on May 15th, that our community have already created during our closed and open betas.”

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

“By buying Tabletop Playground in early access, you’ll be supporting the development of the game and ensuring that we can reach our lofty goals for creating the ultimate digital tabletop gaming experience.

We plan to add many new features, mechanics and quality of life updates to Tabletop Playground throughout its early access development. We believe that by the full launch, we’ll have taken the game to a new level of quality and depth and therefore at the end of the early access period, we plan to raise the price for the game.

Therefore, by buying the game in early access you’ll be getting a cheaper version for putting your trust in us and helping us reach the quality for the game we want to achieve.”

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

“We plan to involve the community every step of the way throughout early access. We’re incredibly active in our official Discord and on the Steam forums, chatting to creators and players every day to hear your feedback and discuss the development of the game.

We’ve been running a closed beta for several months with board game creators, gaining their feedback on the game and the in-game editor. This has helped us hugely on shaping the game and deciding what features to focus on throughout development. We plan to continue to work with board game creators, publishers and players to help us decide what features are most important to the community as development continues.

We look forward to continuing this journey with you into early access on May 15th and your help in shaping our modern digital tabletop gaming simulator.”
