What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Cavern Kings has always been about making the players happy, and I intend on continuing this trend. At first there were a handful of public betas, then we had several private betas available on Kickstarter, and now it's time for Early Access. The feedback from the community has been tremendously helpful in shaping the game and I hope players can help meld the game into a better product via feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Cavern Kings will be Early Access until a final build is released. It's difficult to say how long that will take but my current goal is to fully release the game by the end of 2014.”

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

“As of writing this, Cavern Kings has 4 player characters, 2 bosses, 25 powerups and a plethora of other things. The final version will have 12 characters, a handful more bosses, 50 powerups and a ton more content and polish.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Cavern Kings is currently in closed beta 20, and every beta has been available to the public in some shape or form. If I really had to give a guess, I'd say the game is roughly 65% complete, as most of the content I still need to add isn't all that difficult or time-consuming.”

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

“Cavern Kings will always be $10.00 USD except for sales!”

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

“The community will have access to every beta as I release them (which happens to be on a pretty regular basis). The community's feedback has helped balance and form the game as it is today, and will continue to do so via Early Access!”
