A couple weeks back, Tiny Trinket Games named April 27, 2023 as the early access release date for their tactical RPG Zoria: Age of Shattering. However, this Steam announcement now scraps that whole early access business, explains why Zoria isn't the right game for the early access model, and announces an actual proper release date for the game. And so, barring any delays, Zoria: Age of Shattering should be going live on September 19, 2023.
Here are some extra details:
After careful consideration, we came to the conclusion that Zoria doesn't need Early Access, because we're ready to make a Full Release this September.
Let's fill you in on which arguments helped us make this decision.
We've been working on Zoria tirelessly for some time now. There are surely creators among you that know the feeling (or rather a need) of polishing your project until you think it's perfect. The truth is, the inner critic might never tell you you got there 😉
We evaluated our latest milestone and realized that Zoria is so close to being completed that putting it on Early Access would only water down our progress. Launching Zoria in EA would mean launching an incomplete game for a few months when in reality, we only need a few months to finish the game.
Zoria is not that type of game
Early Access has its benefits, don't get us wrong - that's why we considered it in the first place. Zoria has been in development for some time now, and we were eager to finally show it to you. But games that benefit from EA are hugely the ones that provide service. From the very beginning, we designed Zoria to be a complete, single-player adventure. We want you to be able to fully immerse yourself in the fantasy world of Zoria without the need to turn a blind eye to unpolished elements.
And finally, the argument that appealed to us the most.
Delivering Full Release sooner
By launching Zoria in Early Access, we'd need to change our focus from finishing the game to hotfixing and bugfixing. Instead, we can stay on track and instead release the game sooner. In fact, we made an honest calculation and decided that Zoria: Age of Shattering will launch on September 19th, 2023.
We got excited to get your reactions and feedback to Zoria ASAP, as it'd be an invaluable source of information and a boost of encouragement. But you can still do that by following us on Twitter and Facebook or joining our Discord server ⚔️ At the end of the day, we're working with playtesters as well as with members of our wonderful community (thank you!) to make the most magical experience possible.
Thank you all for your continuous support. See you soon in the next update!
