I'm wondering the same things! I'm so ready for the full game.
Hello, I'm here to answer some questions!
Will slapping Nikolai be an option? Possibly! At the very least, giving him a well-deserved verbal smackdown seems quite likely...
Full release ETA: We're hoping the game will be completed by the end of the year. However, we're planning to roll out semi-regular updates every few months with new events and characters, so check back often! c:
The game will continue to be a free game even when it is fully released. c: We're planning to release some DLC as well as physical merchandise, but the game itself will remain free!
Thank you for your lovely questions, let me know if you have any more! Thank you for playing! <3
