The price of the game is going up from 14.99 to 19.99. This is in preparation for the end of the Alpha, and graduation to Early Access.

A real dumb question but I'm still gonna ask (also for future quoting's sake), will I had to pay 5$ more if I already bought it prior to the date?

No. That’s  the price for people buying it after the date.

So were looking at a character who builds up a foundation of mechanics such as bottles and renown to weaponize them later.

Neat concept, definitely fits the kradeshi bar brawler kind of playstyle

Looking forward to Rook's story being completed and a new character being added!

The price increase is sensible, really makes me feel smart for buying into the Alpha when I did. ;)

From the cards already in the game, Smith seems like he would be an unstable sleazeball. Good to see that impression was very much accurate, I'm already looking forward to how someone like him is going to manage his way through a story. Something tells me he lacks the sharp wits of Sal and Rook.

Haven't played the game yet but since I assume Sal to be easy mode, I'm pretty sure Smith will be harder but I've been looking forward to his character since the 2018 trailer.

Thank you for the roadmap! I absolutely loove the game already! I'm very hyped for Smith!!!

And thank you for all the updates and the hard work you have been doing even in these weird times. I hope you're all well and taking good care of yourself!

first of all i'm suprised that you, minespatch, haven't played since you have been decently talkative on the griftlands forum.

the way it's shaping up, Sal is the easiest and first-est character, with shorter days and bar brawls to kill people who hate you, as well as more flexible deck types.

Rook is a bit harder, due to his slight luck factor, longer days, and different variety of people to interact with.

the current 41$ dollar question is where is smith slummin' it? Sal's campaign hinted at grout bog before rook's venture. Maybe Smith is in Rentoria, the new place in Rook's story, or maybe deltree, the capital of the admiralty (and havaria, i believe).

The compendium suddenly has a few more Heshians in it, so I assume we're going to be dealing with them. The fact that we have a compendium filter for Rentorians when we currently only have one NPC in that category makes me think we will also be dealing with them. That would leave the Jakes and the Bilebrokers as the two "named" factions that haven't been the focus of a character campaign.

April 16 - Rook is out

Summer - new character is developed 

So...what happens in between besides upping the price?

They.... develop the new character. “Summer” is when it’s sufficiently developed for them to show us what they have on the experimental branch.

Oh ok, the way it was phrased made me think that we'll get to play Smith only in summer with nothing new after Rook's release.

Sorry, my sentence was ambiguous. We will get some small previews of the new character some time between now and summer, I assume on the experimental branch. But the first day or whatever from the third campaign will only be available for testing in summer (so after June). It’s a longer stretch of time for an update than usual because it’s a larger amount of content that needs to be developed. Same thing happened with Rook’s story. I can only assume that coordinating it all when everybody works from home doesn’t help either.

Yes, I meant some new playable content before summer. We'll get previews instead, makes sense. Thanks for making it clear.

Yes. When you buy Griftlands during Alpha, you will have access to the game through Early-Access and you will get the full game at launch, on both Epic Game Store and Steam.

I am assuming this means that you'll have a single copy of the full game, on whichever storefront you bought Griftlands from.  However, the way it's worded, it could also mean that if you buy during Alpha you get Griftlands on both storefronts.  Can you please confirm which way this is meant?
