Why Early Access?
We want to use Early Access in order to engage the community and get player feedback that will help us shape the game to its best possible form. We are a small team of developers and therefore we want to get as much help from the community as we can.
Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?
We are planning to have Dread Templar ready for the full release during Fall 2022. However, we also want the game to be in a perfect state before releasing it out of Early Access, which means that in this case, we might prolong the development for a while longer.
How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
The Early Access version of Dread Templar is around 2/5 of the full game as it is planned now. The full version should contain 5 chapters, more enemies, more weapons, more secrets, and… more fun. We also plan to add more languages to the game.
What is the current state of the Early Access version?
The Early Access version contains the first 2 chapters that include a total of 10 levels (out of 25 that will be in the full version). The player can shoot his way through the game with the help of 10 weapons (out of a total 12), face over 15+ enemies (out of a total 25), and upgrade with 70+ skills (out of a total 120+). The Early Access version will be released only in the English language.
Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
Yes, we are planning to increase the price once as we get closer to the full release of the game. We will be informing everyone through forums and our social media channels before any price change might occur, so you can plan ahead.
How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?
We are planning to do that mainly through our Discord server. We encourage all players to share their thoughts about the game by posting messages on our forums. We would like to know their suggestions about improving the game and how they feel about the level design, gameplay elements, sound, and anything they consider important.
