I've been excited for this game for a while, but F2P implementation concerns me.

It looks promising to me. I will keep an eye on it if it gets released in Germany.

Hi guys, I'm Teemu from PlayRaven, the guys working on Spymaster.

Just wanted to pop by and say that there is a lot of cool stuff to come before we'll say the game is "done" and this soft launch is just our way to get some early impressions about if the whole concept of our games is interesting to people.

With that said if you happen to try it out and have something to say (good or bad), feel free to drop us an email at info@playraven.com or post here. I'll do my best to answer in a timely manner

Okay I have had a agent been captured now and I did not rescue him during the mission.
Now I can't use him and to rescue him I need to use 50 gold bars
Is there any other way to rescue Charlie?

Right. Been playing now for a couple of hours. I have thoughts. The first one?

Be brave. Go premium.

Get rid of the F2P element. The timers for training and injury recovery are fine, but ditch paying for gold (and any concept of throwing ads in), and charge an up front fee. Then balance the game slightly more in favour of issuing gold both for partial and full completion of missions. The game is strong enough to sustain a premium release.

Why? Because the concept, the artwork, the sound, and the gameplay - they're all brilliant. This has all the hallmarks of a sleeper hit game. This could be an *excellent* premium game if pitched right, it plays like a premium game, with missions being turn based and there being no stamina bar or any real restriction beyond injury recovery or if your agents get captured (something you can adjust via economy I guess), so the game is already in terms of time and playability geared towards both short and long play sessions. It's addictive as sin, and encourages tactical, clever play, much like a board game made digital.

This is a game that has potential. Don't squander it by trying to trouser money through aggressive monetisation.

I agree with this. I'm into the game but at every turn/option I feel like I'm being hit on the head for gold and it lessens the fun factor pretty drastically. I'd definitely pay for this game but I understand that F2P is way more profitable.
