What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Jumpdrive is a game with a massive scope, we want the chance to develop the game organically, so that the players can be a part of shaping the direction it takes and understanding the process of getting there. With Early Access we’re able to get all of that feedback and help while we work.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our planned release date is the end of 2015.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We’re planning to continue to improve the graphical capabilities of the engine, as well as implementing a massive expansion of the AI system to create a more realistic and lifelike gameworld. We’ll also be adding much more late game content such as specialised player professions.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Most of the gameplay fundamentals are in place, as is the structure of the universe itself. Players are already able to get out and start exploring the universe and building their fortune. On the incomplete side the AI is still rudimentary and there are plenty of bugs still present.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price of the game will be raised incrementally with each major update leading up to the full release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We have an active community on our Steam forum and Reddit and we try to focus our development priorities on the features that our players are most interested in. The more feedback we can get from players the better the final game we’re able to release will be.”
