What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I have been developing and improving Pocket Rogues for almost two years alone. A huge number of ideas have been brought life in that time, and even more content is in the works. Thus far, game development has focused on depth rather than length; new gameplay techniques were added, and old ones were polished, while the plot additions have waited in the wings. The game will not be considered complete until the final points, such as plot, have become part of its production history.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It is planned to complete all key (plot) content no later than in 3-5 months.”

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

  • First of all, the game will be passed from the beginning to the final titles: new locations will consistently continue the journey of the heroes to the depths of the dungeons and to solving the evil events comprehending the world of the game.
  • It is planned to introduce some multiplayer features in the game (but without the need for a permanent link to the online mode).
  • At least 2 new elite classes, as well as sets of primary and secondary weapons for them will be added.
  • A lot of new used items, generated interactive objects, new manually created locations, as well as additional NPCs and full-fledged plot tasks are planned to be added.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, Pocket Rogues is fully functional game, and it can provide dozens of hours of game playing (thanks largely to generated locations and the abundance of powerleveling of both your own Fortress and individual characters)

There are as follows in the game:
  • 6 classes of characters, each of which has 9 unique skills and his/her own set of primary and secondary weapons;
  • 18 available for building and improving buildings in the Guild Fortress, which are designed to enhance the power of all of your characters or discover new game playing features;
  • 6 full-fledged locations, each with its own rules of generation, unique creatures and loot;
  • special generated properties for gears and most enemies;
  • many additional activities, such as generated daily tasks, achievements, collection of gear recipes, the purchase of pets and mercenaries, as well as special locations, such as the Treasury, which can sometimes be found when moving between floors.

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

“It is planned to gradually increase the price as far as new content and features are added. After the release, the new content will continue to be issued for some time, but the price will remain to be fixed.”

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

“For quite a long period of time, the game has a Russian-speaking and English-speaking groups in social networks, as well as topics on Reddit and 4pda forums. Polls are regularly carried out in the groups, and all news with regard to updates are published there. The community is actively involved in the development by offering their ideas and concepts, as well as reporting on emerging issues for their timely elimination. A development cycle consisting of a major update every 2-3 weeks and about 3-4 fixes with edits of stability and balance between them has already been well established.”
