Our Early Access Experience

29 likes

Usually we don't post updates usually so soon after one another, but we really wanted to share with you how the first day on Early Access went. 

The launch has been really wonderful and successful. To put it in perspective, we sold twice as many copies on Steam in ten hours than we sold via pre-order in the whole time after Kickstarter (and that's almost year and a half). The money we've made on Steam so far is already enough to ensure we have the budget we need to finish the game.

We keep on working and fixing bugs, there are in particular some issues with Windows 8 but they will be resolved shortly. 

Thank you,

All of us at Aterdux

      Roq, thank you! That is very encouraging to hear! Belarus - place where people can do a lot with little money :)

    2. Creator Roq on October 13, 2013

      What you've managed to achieve with the very limited funding from KS is already remarkable and am really looking forward to the finished game. One kickstarter I feel proud to have contributed to.

    3. Creator Aterdux Entertainment on October 13, 2013

      p1agm, we will answer everywhere! But Steam community forums is where we hang out most of the time. You played almost to the end of the scenario...

      Johannes, check the update #42 for instructions how to get your key, in case of issues pm me.

      njl deuze, please check the FAQ on Steam forums: http://steamcommunity.com/app/246760/discussions/0/792923683765439626/ Game not starting is the most unforunate error at the moment.

    4. Creator njl on October 13, 2013

      When i try to start the game it just stop and error arrived in my screen thats it

    5. Creator Johannes Schöck on October 13, 2013

      How do I get a Steam copy from the Early Access as a Closed Beta backer? Or is that not intended?

    6. Creator bleepbloorp on October 13, 2013

      I found an earlier save that wound up working. Then it turned out I was at the end of the campaign!

      Thanks for the fun game, can't wait for more content!

    7. Creator bleepbloorp on October 13, 2013

      Is there a better place than here to talk about bugs or whatever?

      I don't want to post spoilers, but I finally made it into my home castle and after the dialog I wind up trapped behind the gates and I can turn the camera and time passes but I can't move or pause or open any windows or anything.

    8. Creator Aterdux Entertainment on October 12, 2013

      Brian, we don't have interface for many resolutions, that's why the cutoff. Working hard to add it, we actually added it but something went wrong. Right now we are trying to figure out why the game doesn't start at all for some people.

    9. Creator Brian Watzig on October 12, 2013

      *update* after trying it not in windows mode I found out that it cut off even more then I thought (in windows made it cuts off a complete row plus 3/4's of the one above it... when in normal mode it cuts off almost the entire one)

    10. Creator Brian Watzig on October 12, 2013

      I've been playing in the windows view and noticed it does cut off a bit at the bottom of the screen (ie. your skill tree, the bottom tier is almost completely cut off) im playing on windows 7

    11. Creator Wayne Sung on October 11, 2013

      Congrats!

    12. Creator Brian Watzig on October 11, 2013

      ahh thanks, I was trying to equipt spears and pikes thinking they were lances, lol

    13. Creator Aterdux Entertainment on October 11, 2013

      Brian, you both need a horse and a lance. Put your soldier on a horse and give it a lance and Eisenwald cavalry is riding! :)

    14. Creator Brian Watzig on October 11, 2013

      ok thanks, heres my question regarding the lance, I picked lancer for my upgrade so I could ride a horse.. but I cant equip a lance, I tried taking off both swords and the shield but still it only allows me to put a sword on.

    15. Creator Aterdux Entertainment on October 11, 2013

      Thank you all for kind words! We are sleeping very little but we are very happy :) Your support and interaction with many players really gives us a lot of joy and motivation!

      Brian Watzig - there is no 3rd chapter, that's why the crash... Will be fixed shortly.
      As for the horse - you also need a lance!

    16. Creator bleepbloorp on October 11, 2013

      That's fantastic. I'm really glad to hear it! I finally got to play an hour or so yesterday and it was a whole lot of fun.

    17. Creator Rejmond on October 11, 2013

      Congratulations guys. Keep up the good work.

    18. Creator ☜☆RSF☆☞ on October 11, 2013

      So happy for you guys and so well deserved!! Congratulations!

    19. Creator Arteziya on October 11, 2013

      Поздравляю ребята (и девчата)! Вы молодцы, сил вам всем и терпения, и спасибо за игру!

    20. Creator Celeir on October 11, 2013

      Таки всяких вам благ!

    21. Creator Nikolay Donets on October 11, 2013

      Поздравляю! Так держать!

    22. Creator Alex Podgoredsky on October 11, 2013

      Congratulations! Great news! Hope we see soon final LoE.

    23. Creator Babby on October 11, 2013

      Congrats!

    24. Creator Brian Watzig on October 11, 2013

      I sent in the error report but also decided to note it here, It doesn't allow access to the 3rd chapter, it keeps crashing when it starts loading it.

    25. Creator Lars Augensen on October 11, 2013

      Really happy for you guys! You deserve some good response after all your hard work.
      I've worked in QA for years, I'll see if I can't report some bugs for you ;-)

    26. Creator Brian Watzig on October 11, 2013

      noticed that when I attach a horse/horse item it doesn't seem to take affect, and it doesn't have me riding it.

    27. Creator Ysengrin on October 11, 2013

      Glad to hear that the game does well on Steam; I find it easier to get updates in this way. Also, the last one seems to have solved my issues with the game not launching :)

      Congratulations, Aterdux

    28. Creator Nicholas Russell on October 10, 2013

      To be honest I've always preferred STEAM to all of the other alternatives so this really has been awesome for me. Thank you for supporting this system.

    29. Creator Wahngrok on October 10, 2013

      I am glad it turned out well for you. All the better for the game even. :)

    30. Creator Darklord on October 10, 2013

      Congrats Guys! :D

    31. Creator Bryce on October 10, 2013

      Also, for those of us who will not be playing the early access, would it be possible for you guys to update us with a new video playthrough demoing some of the updates you've made over the past few months?

    32. Creator Bryce on October 10, 2013

      Congrats guys. I won't be playing early access myself personally because I typically only play a single playthrough (too many games too little time), but it sounds like you've generated the funds necessary to deliver a fantastic final release. With what you've accomplished on a shoestring budget you totally deserve it. Woohoo!

    33. Creator Aterdux Entertainment on October 10, 2013

      What can we say? You guys are the best!

      As for negative posts, we are actually let everyone talk and I only deleted a few bot posts so far. If you look, even negative threads turned out to be positive. And one thing I wasn't aware is the negative opinion of some about Early Access. Well, I was already on a crusade to defend Greenlight, now it's Early Access turn :)

    34. Creator Martin Seeger on October 10, 2013

      I have to say you did a good job. The only problems i encountered so far are:

      a) I don't know what to do when a unit can neither attack (enemies already surrounded) nor heal. If that happens, i can only abort the game.

      b) I have some Russian (i guess) text when i use the English. Mostly it's the name of person i am talking to or a location.

      Beside that, everything is fine and looks great. For that budget: my respects.

      You even got German press coverage: http://www.gamestar.de/spiele/legends-of-eisenwald/news/legends_of_eisenwald,48190,3028834.html

    35. Creator Alex Crast on October 10, 2013

      Fantastic news! Also, I hope you guys don't let the negative posts & threads on the Steam forums get you down in any way. Virtually every "Early Access" game I see on Steam has a forum filled with idiots and trolls that don't understand the concept of paying for early access to an unfinished game to help support it to its completion.

    36. Creator Koovan on October 10, 2013

      This is really great news and deserved reward for all your hard work. It is very pleasing to see Legends of EIsenwald outselling COD:Ghosts, Payday 2 and FM2014 amongst others and indicates that there is an audience for these types of game.

    37. Creator Lars Bendixen on October 10, 2013

      No, a big thanks to you! For the thrill of the kickstarter campaign and the development. It's been a pleasure to follow you so far. Hope we'll be able to back you on kickstarter or elsewhere for new projects in the future!

    38. Creator Aterdux Entertainment on October 10, 2013

      thank you guys! Brian, there are some language glitches, will be fixed very soon!

    39. Creator Henri Clinch on October 10, 2013

      Congrats, your team deserves the success!

    40. Creator Brian Watzig on October 10, 2013

      I just started playing and noticed the villagers I came across there responses are not in English even though English was selected.

    41. Creator Michelle Gosse on October 10, 2013

      Congratulations, I've been really looking forward to playing.
