What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“After we revealed the initial game design concept, we received a ton of interest from players around the world. We have been developing the game throughout this last year, but we are still working on creating more content in PvP, PvE, Classes, and additional game systems. By releasing in Early Access, we hope to hear feedback from players and make further improvements as needed to further expand and polish the definitive, final version of Kurtzpel that our players are looking forward to playing.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to release the full version within 2019. We will continue to develop the game based on our roadmap. Player feedback and the data Early Access will provide will be very helpful in empowering us to make the best game possible.”

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

“"During Early Access, additional classes, new PvP and PvE content will be added; leading up to the full version release. We will also be working on bug fixes.
The planned, final version will contain the following:
- More Classes and related skills
- Heroic NPCs for players to engage with, their respective rewards and new PvE content
- A new multiplayer PvP mode
- New PvP Rank-based systems and related content
- Custom interactions with Heroic NPCs
- Better class balance and quality of life improvements (based on player feedback)"”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“"The current Early Access version contains the following content and features:
- 4 PvP modes
- 4 Character Classes that can be acquired and trained up
(These classes are currently balanced for competitive play)
- 8 Skill types for each class
- 3 PvE modes related to the respective Quest NPCs providers in a number of different level ranges
- Skills and Costumes distributed by NPCs for each Character Class
- A Character and Costume customization system and Equipment Dye System
- Community-Based Lobby Town (Eltheca)
Currently, we are focusing on improving the quality of PvE content and the way players interact with the Heroic NPCs. In addition, we believe that a wide selection of PvP content and game balance optimization are our highest priorities. We’ll be actively following the steam forums and general player feedback. We look forward to any feedback our KurtzPel community provides as this will allow for the best game possible."”

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

“Yes, after Early Access, the prices will be adjusted based on analysis pertaining to qualitative and quantitative value of the featured content we'll be providing. However, we will make sure that all of our early supporters are rewarded. For those who have purchased the Early Access version of KurtzPel, those players will still be able to access their Early Access content in the Final Release Version without having to purchase that same content again.”

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

“"We have been sharing the development progress of KurtzPel via Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube since the early stages of development.
When Early Access releases, the players will be able to meet other players in KurtzPel and they'll be able to provide feedback to us directly through the designated KurtzPel Steam Community Page. We will be actively and proactively involved in the Steam community and sharing our development progress on our social media channels as well. Since we value our players' perspectives and feedback, we, as a developer, have always monitored and respond to feedback. We will also consider implementing your ideas and suggestions in the game."”
