The game’s first stretch goal reached has secured Italian cartographer and artist Francesca Baerald to create digital and physical maps of the game world. Due to high demand by the fans and backers, the developer added localisation for Spanish, Italian and Chinese languages.

Other stretch goals include adding Casey Hollingshead and Scott Hamm (Battle Brothers) to the writing team, composer Kai Rosenkranz (Gothic I, Gothic II, Gothic 3, Risen) to contribute three additional tracks to the game, and the addition of the Monk class.
