Not thrilled about freemium, but I'll support anyway. There just aren't enough deep Diablo-style rpgs on the system. Hopefully, you'll have something in place where we have the option of simply buying the entire game outright...

hoping for something like this and not an incomplete game on release, with no overpowered stuff as IAP

Hey there everyone! I'm super excited for this game. I was just wondering a bit about the project. I saw this game is freemium so I was wondering, what kind of IAP does it have? Will it be for rare armor and weapons and such (items that make progression easier) or more characters and quests (downloadable content)? Also, how many characters do you guys plan on releasing at launch? Finally, what's the expected release date? A lot of questions I know, but thanks in advance for taking the time to at least read them haha.

Good timing for that question!

IAP is all optional - the second playable character is unlocked using gems (we have two playable characters at launch - Blood Knight and Plague Wizard, with two more planned and coming soon). There's also named gear + item identification scrolls available using the in-app currency. You can basically run through the game without any purchase, but you can speed things up with IAP (and unlock additional characters).

Release date - very soon. We're in submission now, and as soon as we're confirmed we'll let everyone here know.
