THE FOUNDING IS HERE!
This is the moment many of our fans have been waiting for: you can now play an early build of Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr.
BUT PLEASE READ THIS POST VERY CAREFULLY!
Before you get too excited and commit to buying the game, please be very careful and thoughtful about this, consider if this release is indeed for you right now. You should understand that this is not the full game. Purchasing any of the tier packs will grant you the full game later, at release (in a couple of months), but not right now. You'll get a playable build right now, but it's not complete. (See the development Roadmap)
This is an opportunity to try the game early, help the developers shape certain aspects of the game until the full product is released. There will be bugs, there will be clunky features, and there will be many-many missing features, most importantly, the story campaign.
What you get now, is a test of core gameplay (including navigation, combat, co-op). Prepare to leave feedback at any time, and these will be vastly improved in following updates.
So just to recap:
What is "The Founding"?
It's a founder campaign following the development of Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr from the alpha build up to the final release. We have reached the alpha state with the game, with the riskier and more uncertain developments behind us. We can see now what we can accomplish and what we can't - the next step is to create a fun, enjoyable game from this basis.
We'd like to invite players and certain members of the press to help us realize Martyr's final form.
Who's it for?
This is for the early adopters who'd like to be there in the early days, helping out developers even in times of struggle, until the game reaches its final state. This is for the players who'd like to help developers with their feedback to create a great game. We can't promise to make all the suggested changes, but we'll always pay close attention to what you're suggesting.
Who should avoid this?
Players who only like a polished, finished product. At this point, Inquisitor - Martyr is no such game, far from it. We're building up from the basics and we'll add more and more layers to it during the Founding. It will have many bugs, it will be unbalanced, and not always fun.
Players who just want early advantages before release should avoid the Founding as well. We'll hit the reset button multiple times during this stage. At release, we'll reset all accounts, you only get to keep skins and the experience of playing.
You won't get the game cheaper this way either, it's a founder campaign offering the game on its base price (and with more expensive tiers). If you want the game at a cheaper price, there will be plenty of opportunities after release.
Also... welcome to our new Community Hub of NeocoreGames! Read the Introduction Post to see what you should expect from this site and how to engage in discussions.
As The Founding launches, it is important that we start testing the game and collecting all feedback from everybody who decides to join us on this journey. There's a lot of work to be done on the game, and we're at this phase were your opinion counts - there's no other way to make a great game. We try to be as transparent as possible, we try to answer all questions, we will listen to you. We're an independent studio, and this is our biggest undertaking yet.
Help us make Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr and its community site something extraordinary. Come and join in discussions whether you join The Founding itself or not - it doesn't matter. What matters is your opinion.
Welcome, Acolytes. The Warp is stirring.
