What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to get the game to the players as soon as possible. We hope that player feedback will help us improve the game and fix any remaining bugs.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in Early Access for at least 6 months. We will release the game when it is polished and stable enough for most players, ideally within 2020 depending on how much content ends up in the final game.”

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

“Drafting Tales already contains a lot of the final features. We want to improve the gameplay, offer more purchasable items, work types/genres/topics and random events that will add to the game experience.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early access version is playable for up to 30 game years, which is the same limit planned for the final release. However, the game has not been well tested, certain features are not currently available and the experience might not be representative of what we are planning for the final release. Also, note that during early access saves might break as new versions of the game are released.”

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

“The price will gradually increase as new content and features are added. The launch price is lower as a thank you to early supporters.”

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

“We would like to work with the community very closely and we hope that we will receive feedback and feature requests from players that will help us make Drafting Tales an even better game.”
