Early Access for ToyGenerals 27 March 2017
Why Early Access?
“Thanks to all of you who support us in the development of this story with toy soldiers, we are getting strength to continue developing. We really appreciate your opinion to fill the game with bright colors. We make this project for you — our players. We regularly receive messages with feedback and recommendations from players who participate in the closed testing of the game. So thanks to you the Game has moved from the turn-based strategy mode to real-time and we are grateful to you for it!”
Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?
“We plan to release the game within 3 months after placement in early access to add the remaining cards, eliminate possible errors.
After that, we plan to develop the game for another 4-6 months to introduce multiplayer on large maps.
The current stage of development has been going on for 9 months already and a large number of people have already participated in the testing of the game. Now we are ready to open the possibility of participation in the development of the game to more people.”
How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
“We are planning a huge update of the features in the game, such as:
— Tactical mode from the first person,
— the ability to develop the characteristics of units
— multiplayer on large cards with the ability to buy units during combat
For all this grand design, we need your support and active participation in the development of the game. Thank you!”
What is the current state of the Early Access version?
“The version of early access contains 21 levels and 7 unique thematic locations in which the struggle for existence unfolds. At these levels, all the functions of the game and all the units are fully accessible. All levels have Russian and English voice acting, performed by young actors of the theatrical school. The game contains subtitles of all dialogs and interface localization in 10 languages.”
Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
“We are going to slightly increase the price after the release of multiplayer. As additional functions, game modes and levels will be added. We hope that players will feel that they have paid the appropriate price for the amount of content available at any stage of game development.”
How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?
“We are glad that people are already actively participating in the development of the project and are communicating with us. We plan to hold regular competitions of activity of our players involved in the game development process. At the end of each stage of the contest, the most active ones will be announced, which will be sent thematic souvenirs by mail to anywhere in the world. We will open a little secret about this topic. This will be the tin and plastic figures of soldiers from the game, as well as posters and T-shirts in the theme of the game. We are looking forward to your participation!”
