What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Based on what we have known about game design, we made one conclusion that seems very important to us: community's opinion matters.
It means that with early access we could aggregate enough reviews and suggestions that will show us what Steam players values the most and on what we should focus our efforts to make our game as close to ideal as possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We suppose that we'll reach our goals in 3-5 months.”

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

“- Map will be extended (or we will add several new maps);
- Will be implemented inhabitant's customization - each will have a name and needs;
- Will be added more and more types of buildings and resources;
- Will be added new missions and final goals to make a gameplay more variable;
- New challenges will be added in the game, such as - epidemics, visits of wandering monks and merchants, raids of hostile nomads.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version includes these content and features:

- Mechanics of construction and improvement of various buildings;
- Mechanics of discontent and its impact on various aspects of gameplay;
- Mechanics of extracting and trading of resources;
- Global final goal and system of missions.”

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

“We prefer not to charge an exorbitant price, so City of Jade: Imperial Frontier will gradually grow in price while we'll be adding new content and features, but the final price will be different from the initial one insignificantly.”

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

“The best way to stay in touch with your audience is to have a dialogue: through comments, reviews and discussions. So that's exactly what we're going to do!”

About This Game

It's hard to be a governor, and to be one in the medieval China is even harder! You have not only to develop the city, but also to make sure that it follows its unique way – Dao of the city.

You were assigned to manage a small settlement on the border of the Heavenly Empire. The Emperor has great expectations of you, for you are a true Confucian and know the path of the settlement entrusted to you. His Majesty hopes that you will be able to turn this small village into a prosperous and powerful city, and it'll become a stronghold on the border.

  • Develop the economy of your settlement;
  • Gain resources;
  • Create and improve buildings;
  • Track the people's mood and try to keep them satisfied.

However, life in the country is not always calm. It's important for a governor to be able to deal with emergencies and make wise decisions.
  • Don't be afraid to try something new, but also don't take unnecessary risks;
  • Lead your city in the upright path.

Go down in history as a wise and talented governor!
