Here are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions regarding RAID ENCOUNTERS:
Question: Will there be a mobile version of RAID ENCOUNTERS?
If you'd like to play a Beta version of Raid Encounters on your device, there is currently a way to do that by adding this link to your device's homescreen. This will enable a fullscreen, landscape view that looks a lot like how a native app would feel. This is just a temporary solution for now, and it's not guaranteed to always work, so your mileage may definitely vary from day to day or from device to device.
Q: Will there be DLC (Downloadable Content) ?
A: Raid Encounters, by its nature, leaves the door wide open for the development of additional content. Adding new Encounters, Monsters, and Raid Bosses can definitely be done and designed into the existing game. No DLC has even been thought about currently, but I don't see why it wouldn't be possible.
Q: When will the Beta be over?
A: There are no current deadlines in place to end the Beta testing period, but there should be no gap between an official release and beta testing so you should never be without Raid Encounters for an extended amount of time.
Q: When will there be Global Leaderboards?
A: The infrastructure for Global Leaderboards is currently being laid and and is in the initial phases right now. Beta is a weird time for such public scoring practices, so it hasn't been a top priority. When we get closer to an official launch on most platforms and can look over the Scores implementation across the various APIs offered by Apple, Google, Microsoft, and Parse, then we can figure out the best way to have them published on the site.
Do keep in mind that Global Leaderboards accessed here on RaidEncounters.com will only pertain to PC, Laptop, and Web Browser users when they do get implemented.
Q: Are there any Microtransactions?
A: No, not at this time, but this is definitely a possibility from a pure cosmetic standpoint. There may be ways to buy different looks and styles for your Raid Party and Avatars but this would have no bearing on actual gameplay, so it definitely wouldn't qualify as P2W (Pay-to-Win). Potentially, however, additional Encounters and content may become available after the original 12 Encounters have been perfected; but Raid Encounters with no purchased content is the experience envisioned.
Q: Who made RAID ENCOUNTERS?
A: RAID ENCOUNTERS was coded and designed by Mike Twomey in affiliation with my design company Coast Media House. I did all of the sound effects, character design, coding, and gameplay mechanics over the course of a few months as a hobby.
