What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“(Updated 10/25/20) Early Access allows us to work on adding new content and polishing the game while directly communicating with our community. We've been involving players in various playtests from early pre-alpha stages, and we know how valuable your feedback can be.

While the main story content is fully defined and almost entirely implemented at this point, there's a lot of work to do when it comes to polish. Additionally, we want to make sure the final game also comes with enough side content to satisfy our fans.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're planning for Shores Unknown to stay in Early Access for approximately one year.”

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

“The full version of the game will feature all four story chapters of the game, as well as optional side content - overall, we expect our players to get at least 20-30 hours from a single playthrough in the final version. It will also feature expanded character progression through more classes, items and abilities. You can also expect numerous incremental improvements to gameplay, interface and visuals leading up to final release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Upon launching in Early Access, Shores Unknown will include the first chapter of the game's main story in its entirety, and the first half of the second chapter, as well as accompanying side quests. One playthrough of this content should take you 4-6 hours on average. You will be able to unlock the full party (up to 5 members), your own personal mercenary hideout, and encounter some challenging fights which will let you experience our original battle system as advertised. Only English language will be supported upon release, as we're still working on finalizing the story content of the game.

Our goal is for this content to be as polished, bug-free and as fun to play as possible (those who played our demo should know what to expect), with few to no placeholders. We will then build upon this base to add new story chapters, side quests, contract battles and more, while also adjusting the existing content based on the player feedback.”

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

“Yes. The final version of the game will be priced higher than the Early Access version to reflect the additional content and features.”

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

“We plan to communicate with our supporters via Steam Community services as well as engage in conversation with our followers in Discord. With this, our goal is to maintain a steady cadence of updates that both expand the game's content and include the popular requests of the community.”

About This Game



Shores Unknown is a single-player tactical RPG featuring an innovative gridless battle system combined with epic fights against huge bosses and enemy armies.

THE SHORES BECKON

Shores Unknown takes place in a land ruled by the iron-fisted Crown, and policed by the fearsome Inquisition, from whom it is said there is no escape. To the south lies the Empire and perpetual war, while to the north there is only the Murk — a seething wall of fog from which no ship has ever returned. In the midst of these grand forces, both natural and otherwise, our heroes must find a way to survive and to pursue their dreams of liberty.

Play as the newly-made leader of a mercenary company, fresh off an assignment gone awry. Now on the wrong side of the Crown, allies and loyalty are paramount. Forced to venture through the maw of the Murk in a search for truth, players will explore unknown lands, forge new alliances, and wage battle against those who would see to their end. What dangers await on Shores Unknown?
