A few words on this Early Access
Dear Early Access enthusiasts,

Thank you for even considering joining our Alpha Early Access for Endless Legend, the spiritual child of Endless Space, where you will lead a fantasy civilisation to rule Auriga, the legendary planet of the Endless.

What can you expect from that Alpha? Well we will tell you the same thing for each one of our games in Early Access: You should expect a lot of fun with the core game mechanics BUT you can also expect bugs, obviously, although the game is definitely tested. As we add new content every day, things cannot be as stable or polished as a finished product.

What content you will find in the Alpha Early Access
  • You can play any game with up to 6 players but only on continental maps. Boats will be added later
  • 4 factions out of 8 are available for you to choose from
  • 10 minor factions out of 15 to be incorporated to your empire
  • 4 eras and around 100 technologies to get from quests and research
  • Military victory condition
  • A few sample quests on top of the main faction quests
  • A 200 turns time limit after which the best score will win
  • A core AI that will simulate a bunch of leaders who probably skipped way too many courses to go brawling in their youth
  • Therefore, with such leaders we went for a basic diplomacy
  • A first pass at music and sound design, all soundtracks will be re-recorded later
  • The core battle system

What is Missing
  • 4 additional playable factions (8 in the final game) and 5 additional minor factions (15 in the final game)
  • Multiplayer gameplay (8 players / simultaneous turns)
  • Custom factions and modding
  • Advanced AI for diplomacy, economy and warmongering
  • Naval transportation and map generation with several continents
  • Roads and trade routes
  • 2 additional eras for a total of 6, with up to 40 extra technologies
  • Fully functional diplomacy
  • A tutorial campaign
  • Additional victory conditions
  • Additional battle options
  • Varied unit abilities
  • Finished battle system
  • Lots of tuning and additions coming from players participating with us to GAMES2GETHER

So as you will see there is a LOT of content, but there is also a LOT of content coming!

Will the final game be longer then 200 turns?

I feel like the term "Early Access enthusiast" ought to be taken as an insult.

Where can we report bugs? Just started a game and the screen automaticly scrolls.

I assume it will, but the 200 turn limit is the only thing in the EA (Alpha) list that I don't like. I really don't like turn limits or time limits in games so I hope that is removed relatively quickly in the Early Access period.

Sticky thread will tell you how: http://steamcommunity.com/app/289130/discussions/0/540739861095536414/

You can either post your issues on the Steam discussions, as long as you provide the info that we need, or on our forums (link[forums.amplitude-studios.com]).

I will buy it. But without turn limit <_< I will play my game so long i have fun. Not when the counter say >its 200 Rounds! You must stop playing!< Sorry for bad english. This game looks amazing. I waiting :)

What the heck is the point of the 200 turn limit? I almost didn't even check the early access info, I've been waiting for this game and was about to buy it blindly, but I'm not even going to touch a 4x with a 200 turn limit. I'm sure it's just an aplha thing and it will be gone by release, but I can't figure out why it would exist in the first place and I'm hoping it's not just a demo-style fun lock.

That might be true if a dev had not replied already to someone who posted after my question , mine was a simple yes or no answer compared to what he had to type for his other post lol.

What's your pricing policy for this Early Access?
Supporters are paying less than launch price or more, and why?
Sraew Apr 24, 2014 @ 11:12am 
Any word on what map sizes you are looking at? Also the types of maps, we got a couple of pangea and "No Ocean" types right now, what's coming in the future? Only played it for like 45 minutes so far, but I'm having a blast. Great job once again.

I'm taking it that the 200 turn limit is just for the Early Access right?
