This is the initial release of the game and I am a solo developer, so expect to find some bugs (and be pleasantly surprised if you don't). Know that I will be working hard to squash all bugs and continue developing the game to completion. I love this game, and I want it to be the best experience possible. With that in mind, I would love for you to provide feedback. The best place to do so is on the subreddit r/thetrueslimeking.
State of the Game: Early Access 1.0.1
- Bugs: This is the first release of the game, and it's going to have bugs. Know that I will get around to fixing things, you just might have to be patient with me; I'm a one person team.
- Languages supported: English.
- Platforms: Windows.
- Runs at 60fps (can't uncap).
- 115 levels spread throughout 5 kingdoms.
- ~8 hours of gameplay in Story Mode (4 minutes average per level).
- 39 songs to jam out to while you kill your slime buddy trying to make it through all the levels.
- In-game level editor for easily making your own levels.
- Quick play mode: Play custom levels and any story mode levels you've unlocked.
- Options sidebar: Tweak all your preferences for keybindings, volume, colorblind support, and how replays are displayed.
Plans for Continued Development and Full Release
I plan to sell the full release of the game at the same price as early access.
- Adding Corrupt Mode (new game+) to the game (doubling the Story Mode content with new challenges and puzzles). Corrupt mode will NOT be DLC. It will be included for everyone who buys the game (past, present, future).
- Listening to community feedback on Story Mode and tweaking the difficulty and level ordering accordingly.
- Improve user interface.
- Polishing the Level Editor.
- Polishing Quick Play mode.
- Adding small features here and there. Making things more beautiful.
- Squash all the bugs!
- I'm always open to feedback from the community on what they want in the game, but I don't have the time or resources to implement every possible feature.
I'm a one person team, so while I'll be working hard to get these things done, don't expect super fast updates.
- Game controller support
- In-game achievements
- Platform support: Linux, Mac, Consoles
- Support for other languages
Early Access Feedback
I want your feedback on the game. Tell me what you don't like and tell me what you'd like to have. I want the community to help mold this game throughout the Alpha access. That said, keep in mind that I'm only one person, so I won't be able to add a billion features into the game. The best way for you to get involved is on reddit.com/r/thetrueslimeking
You are free to make videos/streams of The True Slime King and monetize them. In fact, I'll give you a reward for making a video (see the Freebies page).
If you want to get the game but are unsure about whether to buy it at this point, ask yourself if you fall into the following categories:
- Players who understand this is a game with bugs.
- Players who understand that not all of the content that will be in the final release is in the current release.
- Players who have an interest in providing feedback to help shape the development of the game.
- Players who are passionate about this genre and want to be a part of the early community.
- Players who want to use their money to support the development of this game.
- The core game mechanics are in place and aren't going to change.
- The levels currently in the game are subject to change.
- Current save files, level files, and replays may become incompatible with future updates of the game (though I'll do my best to keep everything compatible).
- I am a one person team, so updates/development may not be as fast/regular as you might hope (though I hope to pleasantly surprise you).
"Did you really make this whole game by yourself?" Well, not quite. I've made everything except some of the sound effects. I've given credit in game to the additional sound effects I used.
