FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
When will I be able to play the game?
Depending on how you choose to support the game, you can start playing Das Tal immediately (Vanguard & Harbinger), when we launch into Early Access (Seeker) or at full launch (Nomad). Check the details of each dev supporter tier to see when each can start playing.
What is your business model going to be? Subscription? P2P? F2P?
We love the simplicity of “pay-once” so this is the business model we’re offering our early supporters. This might change (for later players) - we think that that being “free” in some way would help the game immensely by bringing in more players. But we also know that “free-to-play” is very hard to do right and that we will never have any sort of game-breaking monetization (item shop, pay to reduce grind) in our game. We probably despise Pay2Win more than you do.
What can I do to help right now?
Sign up for our upcoming playtests and/or newsletter. You can also show your interest in the game by sharing news and discussing the game with us. We will be actively engaging with anyone and everyone interested in the development of Das Tal on our forums. We also do a bi-weekly blog and you can follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
Can I create videos of the game and make money from them?
Yes please. You are free to create videos of our game and distribute them over your web site, YouTube, Twitch or other video platforms. You are free to monetize those videos via ads, via the YouTube partner program and similar programs on other video sites. You cannot charge users to view or access these videos. You also can’t sell or license your videos to others for a payment of any kind.
