What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“In order for the game to reach it's full potential, feedback from the community is an extremely valuable resource in order to improve player interaction and the core gameplay experience! Whilst confident in the game's direction, ideas and features may be improved even further, with the help from dedicated players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“With the endless possibilities and features of the game, a full release date has not yet been set, however, 2017 is a likely goal”

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

“New features are constantly being added and expanded upon, such as; combat improvements, new item recipes, better map generation. Full launch will add new variety to building, crafting and exploration, and ongoing balance changes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“While the game is in Early Access, there is still much to do, including 10+ featured biomes, 400+ items to discover and craft and 30+ monster types to combat. However, as this is not the full release, the game may also contain bugs, item stats/monster imbalances, and rarely, corrupt or deleted saves.”

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

“As more features are added, the price will be increased fairly to reflect the amount of game content available.”

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

“We wish the game to be as fun as possible, and is made for the players. New ideas and any issues from feedback will be constantly evaluated and changed, as players discovered new ways to play!”

The future

While I don't have an official roadmap (yet), I took some time to fully plan out the game, and what needs to change to consider full release, so I'll give a brief run down on what to expect.

NPCs/followers. While the first set of NPCs are in game (merchants), they currently have no permanent residence. Future followers will require housing before they move in, and unlocked via certain requirements.

Home ship. This will serve as a central hub containing the world map (see below), and crew members will hang around there until moved into a home.

World map. Will contain increasingly difficult islands and areas to explore, which will also be unlocked via a number of ways, such as, special followers, defeating bosses, and completing quests for townsfolk.


More in depth weather systems. While currently purely visual, weathers system will impact gameplay in some way, whether it be watering/destroying crops (rain/snow), effecting line of sight(sandstorm), harmful sailing(lightning storms), and so on.

The current plan is to have all of the above implemented within the next year (hopefully sooner), including more frequent updates/dev blog updates on what's being worked on.
