What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Bolt Riley's story is divided to chapters. We are releasing Chapter 1 as Early access because it only tells the first part of the story. We want to involve players in our development process before the game releasing the next chapter, and get as much feedback on it as we can, so we can make the full game a better game!
Early access of the game is also given to all the players who contributed to our Kickstarter Campaign.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until the full game story is released (aiming at 4/20/2017).”

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

“The full game will include another chapter, in which Bolt Riley continue his adventures in Trenchtown, meets new people, complete the tasks he was given in the first chapter and come to a final conclusion in his path becoming a Reggae Musician.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The first chapter of the game that is available through Early Access is a complete short game, with original music, voice acting and everything.
You can play and enjoy it as a whole experience while we work on the next chapter!”

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

“The price for the early access is currently only the price for the first chapter. When the second chapter comes along we will adjust the price to reflect the full story.”

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

“This game was crowdfunded and we included backers in some of the game's puzzles, and dialogues. We would love to get your input on the game while we work on the next chapter!”
