New Q&A

Over the last year since we launched Early Access on steam, we've received a bunch of recurring questions about the game and it's development. As such, it's long overdue that we update our FAQ on the website, and so, I've gathered a bunch of the questions we get a lot and tried to answer them to the best of my ability:

Why should I buy into Early Access?
If you're asking this question, the correct answer is that you probably shouldn't

Buying into EA is mainly recommended for people who wish to be a part of the development: helping us finding bugs, coming up with suggestions or are curious to see how a game develops over time. If you prefer to play a finished game, we highly encourage you to wait with your purchase until it's properly released!

Can you remind me when the game is actually released?
Yes! We have this mailing list for this very purpose. Just add your mail through that page and we'll send you a reminder once Secrets of Grindea leaves Early Access :)

Why is the development so slow? Are you just lazy?
The reason for the development appearing slow is that it's a hand-made RPG made by 3 people who have no interest in rushing the development only to release a subpar product. Instead, we put in the hours we need to make this game as good as we possibly can. 

That means, if we need to add another week of development time to fix some unforeseen bugs, that's what we'll do (and this is why we won't give a proper release date until we're 99% sure we can make it)!

Why don't you have sales?
The most important thing for us during this Early Access period is that buyers are aware of what they purchase in terms of stability, content, etc (which is why we only recommend EA for people who want to be part of the development process in some way). The idea behind a sale is the complete opposite of that philosophy, as it creates an impulse to buy something before it gets more expensive again. Therefore, a sale increases the risk of people buying the game without reading our EA disclaimers, and as such end up disappointed that the game isn't completely finished, or simply not what they expected.

Once we've added everything we want to the game and it's properly released, we will begin having sales, but until then we don't want to lure people into Early Access with time-limited offers. 

For a more thorough answer, see this post on the Steam forums!
