What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Lornsword is a fresh new blend of action and strategy. We have been working on the game for quite a while by ourselves, and we now feel confident that we can share what we have with you all. We think we have enough gameplay to give you a good idea of our general direction, but we would much appreciate feedback from players to further refine this. Which game mechanics are fun? Which are less so? Is the game too hard? Or too easy? And last but not least: did we get this blend of action and strategy right? Should there be more action? More strategy?”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We should be running early access for 4 to 6 months. We want to polish Lornsword as much as we can, so there is a “when it’s done” element to the timing.”

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

“The full version of the game will contain the 3rd chapter and Challenge mode. We are also testing a split screen PvP mode that might be included if it’s as much fun as we hope. The biggest difference between the Early Access version and the released version will probably be the precision of the game’s balancing: both its difficulty balancing and the perceptual balancing of its buildings and units. The Early Access version is balanced “to our taste” with the input of the playtesters who tried it, but that’s still a small number of players: the easy setting might still be too hard and the hard setting way too easy for challenge seekers. We will adapt these based both on individual “subjective” feedback and looking at statistical objective metrics.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version contains the prologue and an early version of the first two chapters of the Winter Chronicle in a playable state. We have optimized and debugged the core game quite a lot, so it should be a smooth and stable experience for most people already. Some people will inevitably run into problems we never saw, and it will be our priority to fix these when we can reproduce them.”

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

“We want to thank you for trying Lornsword early, for helping in making it better over time, so the price of the Early Access version will remain lower to the release price for the entire Early Access duration. Once the game is released we do not plan discounting it quickly but instead to keep updating, balancing and polishing it over time for it to maintain its appeal. It’s also a way to keep the interest of the Early Access price cut for much longer.”

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

“We have several communication channels open, including Steam itself and no preconceived thoughts on where it will be most efficient to exchange with the community. So there might be more exchanges on one channel than the other, the community will decide and we will follow that. What matters is that we can understand individual feelings about what works, what needs improvement and idea of what could be added. This page will be kept updated with the additions, changes and improvements to the game, but we will also echo and discuss them wherever you are.”
