What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“There are multiple reasons why.

We want to give to the players who were following the development a chance to see how the game is built step by step and play all the versions of it.

We want to get feedback and suggestions from our early, most loyal players.

We'll complete Encased development regardless of sales.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately nine months.”

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

“The final release will contain Act 2 and Act 3 of the game. This means way more locations to explore, combats to win and artifacts to find.

We also plan to flesh out the combat system, add new recipes to the crafting, include Traits that the player could choose at the beginning of the game, make a tutorial and add a couple of new cut-scenes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early access version features the prologue and piece of the global map exploration which gives more than 10 hours of gameplay (depending on your playstyle). The player will be able to finish 20+ quests, meet 75+ unique characters each with their own dialogue and story.”

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

“The price may go up after the Early Access.”

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

“We encourage the community to give feedback and opinions about the game features, as well as suggest some ideas and share what's, in their opinion, works and what needs to be redone! This will ultimately shape the game for the best.”
