What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This is a passion project for me where I'm trying to implement features I want to see in a city-builder. My hope is for this to be a platform for others who love the genre to get involved and influence the development process.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game should be in it's full version within 6 months of the early access release.”

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

“The full version will be more refined and contain additional features. The main focus is to expand the systems for procedural events and making the worlds more engaging. A more refined combat system and several art updates will follow soon. Stability updates and bug fixes as well as community suggested ideas will get implemented ongoing.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is playable and relatively stable. Some art assets don't have the final look and some potential features are not yet implemented. All core features listed in the "About This Game" section are implemented and working. There might be bugs and optimization issues still in the game, I would love to hear from you if you find such a thing and I will roll out patches as soon as possible.”

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

“No, the price now is the final price.”

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

“To involve the community is the main reason behind this early access release. I would love to get feedback from the community and together polish the game to become a great addition to the city-builder genre. I consider and value all community suggested ideas and comments, please leave your feedback in the Steam Discussion board.”
