Currently, The Waylanders promises between ten and twelve hours of content. More of its story, as well as additional character skills and classes, will be added progressively. The version available at launch is in a very rough state, something developer Gato Studio is transparent about. It’s so rough I didn’t make it past the three-hour mark – inevitably a fatal error would take my game out each and every time.
