What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Waylanders is made by RPG lovers. We know there are many more RPG lovers worldwide, and we would like to count on all of you to help The Waylanders grow and improve. Our community is the best and most useful asset we have, and we want to listen to all of you. Early Access allows us to work side-by-side with the community and that's why we want to release an early version ahead of the final launch. Your feedback will be a game-changer!

Don't hesitate to contact us in the Steam Discussions section. We will be checking all the feedback posted.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“According to our estimations, The Waylanders will be on Early Access until sometime between late 2020 and early 2021. Expect a lot of changes during this process!”

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

“Some limitations you’ll experience playing Early Access:

  • Game length: The Waylanders is divided into three acts. The Alpha version includes a part of the first act. We'll include more story content in upcoming updates.
  • Languages: you’ll be able to play in English during the early versions. The final release will include the rest of the available languages: Russian, Simplified Chinese, German, French and Spanish
  • Some voices and dialogues are missing.
  • Some cinematics are missing, meaning some parts of the story may not be strongly connected in the Alpha.
  • Saved games: some major future updates could delete your saved game.
  • Stats and attributes: we'll improve the combat balance during Early Access.
  • User experience: expect major changes to adapt the game to players. We'll check all your feedback and take it seriously to improve the game in multiple ways.
  • Bugs and game crashes: if you hate to find gameplay issues and unexpected errors, maybe Early Access is not for you. Try to be patient and expect some issues when playing.

All this means that The Waylanders will be a bigger RPG when it reaches the final version and will include much more content.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In terms of story, 25% of the game's content will be available in the upcoming updates, and we'll be progressively adding more. The combat system is fully available, but we’ll improve balancing, some combat mechanics, skills, advanced classes, and more.”

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

“We appreciate the feedback from our Kickstarter backers and Early Access users. This means that yes, the price will increase in the future.”

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

“We are constantly improving The Waylanders. We take your comments very seriously and we intend to review all the reports you send in. We have a Steam discussion section for Early Access players, so you'll be able to report any issue you find in the game directly to us in Steam. Don't hesitate in telling us your impressions, suggestions, and feedback. We are here to listen to your opinion.”

About This Game

EPIC STORY INSPIRED IN CELTIC MYTHOLOGY

The first meeting between the Celts and their gods, the Tuatha de Danaan should have been a time of celebration and enlightenment. But, when the negotiations go catastrophically wrong, you find yourself near death- and untethered from time! The land has been overtaken by magickal corruptions, and the kingdom, once peaceful, has splintered into multiple factions warring for the throne. The Celtic culture- a complex tapestry of different religions, cultures, mortal and immortal human races, werewolves, druids, goblins, and monsters threatens to tear at every seam. Will you support the immature yet rightful heir, or the pragmatic general? What alliances will you forge, what friendships will you foster, what romances will you pursue, and... what will you do when you are suddenly thrust into Medieval Spain?


You discover, because you have been untethered from time, that you are able to travel between the Celtic and Medieval eras. Things look pretty different in Galicia under Christianity than they did under Celtic rule. Where are your immortal allies now, and what has become of the souls of your mortal friends, reincarnated? Could the corrupt magicks that interfered during your meeting with the Tuatha have led to the destruction of all the Celtic world held dear? Or was a larger force of politics and religion at fault- or, perhaps, to thank for the changes the world has experienced?
