Product Update: Learnings from the Early Access

Medieval Empires is not just a game; it's a whole new world that needs to be built from the ground up. We got a tremendous amount of feedback from our community following the release of the first Early Access version of Medieval Empires. There were a lot of learnings involved for us, both internally and externally. In addition to everything we show to our community, there are a lot of behind-the-scenes efforts that go into making the very foundations of the game strong. Some of these factors we are able to anticipate, while others we keep on discovering as the game development progresses.

The Early Access Version of Medieval Empires was very well received by our community

Game Design Update: Balancing and Fixes

The game design team has been hard at work throughout the early access release, carefully analyzing all the feedback received and working on implementing it. The team discovered that players found archers to be the strongest unit, which was not supposed to be the case. After receiving this feedback, the game developers validated the problem and determined that the players were right. They then detected the reason, corrected it, and released the new balancing. Finally, a reality check was done to ensure everything was running smoothly.

Another issue that the team identified was that the strength of the heroes was increasing 10x compared to other units. Upon validation, the team found a small typo in the formula given to the developers and subsequently fixed it.

There were several other similar examples where player feedback helped the team identify and fix issues, making the game more enjoyable for everyone.

Art Update

The art team has also been busy adding more details to the game world. They are working on new cavalry characters for both the Crusaders and Kayi factions and adding animations such as units walking from one place to another on the map and war animations. The team is also incorporating new effects to enhance the overall experience, such as fireworks for celebration, flames glowing in bonfires, and shining armor and swords.

The game is definitely one to watch out for, and we can't wait to see what the future holds for Medieval Empires.
