What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The fact is that “Mittelborg” is an active project, which is constantly changing and growing.

Our brainchild is not just a one-shot project, to be rushed and forgotten at once. We expect that the game will enjoy a long and happy life, will acquire the sequels (free, of course), will generate a whole dynasty of independent chapters in the saga of the “World Between Worlds”. This journey is long, and before embarking on it, we need to endure the birth pangs, which every new game has: remove bugs, test mechanics, check usability and etc. The Early Access and you, our first players, will help us to move further with steady pace, correcting flaws with one hand and adding new features and mechanics with the other.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will leave the Early Access when we are confident that our community will receive the finished product. We work hard not only on creating unique content and mechanics, but also on the gaming experience of our audience. For this reason, we can only give a rough release date of six months.”

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

“Everything is going to be different in the game but the idea and the main mechanic.

All aspects of the game will be improved. Our plan is:

  • Polish the current game mechanics and add new ones. Some, such as the dynastic system of inheritance, goes back to the roots and some tend to be fresh and bold.
  • Expand the arsenal and collection of game entities. We are talking about the game universe, and the number of entities in the universes is in the thousands.
  • Increase significantly the number of stories and events. In “Mittelborg”, something's always happening, and we are working to make these events as interesting as possible.
  • Rework art greatly: replace static images with animation, enrich the visual framing.

And much more.
Of course, it all will not happen immediately, but will appear in the game gradually, changing it in the “soft launch” mode.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“By the time the Chancellor arrives, everything is ready. Currently our game offers:

  • City-citadel for development and protection.
  • Mages and warriors for expeditions and battles.
  • Expeditions themselves can be long or short, sent to every corner of the world.
  • More than 200 unique events with challenging moral choices in each.
  • A vast system of achievements and skills.

Certainly, the whole universe, as we know it, is at your disposal.
Although the game is now ready to give you a lot, many changes await. What you see at the moment is just the beginning. The next version will get even better.”

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

“The price will be corrected after the final release. But the alpha access gives you the right to both early and all later versions of the game.”

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

“The key quality of any product is interaction with the audience. We plan to constantly communicate with our players on the forums on Steam, in the official communities of Armatur Games on Facebook, VK, Twitter and YouTube.

Every review, opinion, advice or bug report helps us to make “Mittelborg” better. After a while our participation in the development will become even deeper: in-game surveys, online conferences with players and similar feedback forms will be launched.”

About This Game

You are a chancellor of Mittelborg, the crucial city for the balance of all existing powers in-between worlds. There is the Ancient Order of Magicians in the city, called Viates. They have been protecting the numerous connected worlds and watching for the World Tree since the beginning of time.

The World Tree is a mirror of equilibrium of all powers in world. It is woven of the invisible divine fibers. When it flourishes, it exudes power. It gives all Viates magic and energy to prevent the chaos in the Universe. As the last chancellor disappeared during one magical expedition, the World Tree keeps fading away. The mighty of Viates oozes with the vitality of the World Tree too. It leads to the massive imbalance of the sacred source of powers and outbreaks of mysterious mortal storms. Tempests roar across worlds, bringing damage and destruction, spreading fear in hearts, knowing no mercy, erasing everything on their way.

Your magical power is in reincarnation after death with all memories and skills saved. Use your advantage and start over again. Develop your strategy. Try different tactics and find one matching your style, train your logic in quests. Replaying is truly the key to progression because every round you find out new story
details, craft new kind of potion or find a helpful artefact, gather a powerful arsenal of spells and expand the armory. Mages are awaiting the command to head off to numerous magical worlds and miraculous adventures.

The struggle is on, embrace it and survive in Mittelborg!



 Protect the city!

Mittelborg is the heart of this world and thousands of swords and spears are aimed at it.
There are monsters, nomads, mercenaries, the living dead, rebellious spirits. It is all
diverse. Chaos does not sleep, but besieges the World between the Worlds. Collect
resources, get ready for Tempests, keep guards on the walls and magicians on the
towers. There will be a lot of blood, but remember what is at stake. It is better to shed a
gallon of blood than to lose a single leaf from the branch of the World Tree.

 Think and rule!

In Mittelborg, nothing happens without the Chancellor’s knowledge, which means that
you will have to make hard decisions all the time. Who to sacrifice: a warrior or a mage?
Do you execute or pardon? Spend the Aether on the repairs or to enhance the
weapons? Have a drink or poison the cup? Power is a heavy burden... will you protect
what’s most sacred, or will you drench it in blood... will you succeed or will you fail?



 Fight, die, fight again!

A human life is worth nothing in a world where waves of Chaos swamp the shores of
Order. It is insanely easy to die here, so no one thinks about tomorrow. No one but you:
you are the only immortal one. You become a little smarter, returning after the regular
death. You hone the strategy, you save all previous experience that will help you endure
a little bit longer this time.

 The world is huge.

You have a long and dangerous path before you. There will be dozens of worlds and
hostile races, hundreds of unique events, thousands of intertwined destinies and stories
... and you have to navigate all the perils, making wise choices.
