What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I want the development of Path to the Sky to be an open process that people can participate in. Anyone who wishes to have an impact on the game is able to be part of its creation by voicing ideas to me at any time on twitter (https://twitter.com/dekdev), through the games website or on the official Trello board! If the community clearly wants something then I will make it my main focus!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Path to the Sky will leave the state of early access as soon as it feels like a game that has enough randomized content for hundreds of runs.”

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

“For the full release, I plan to add several playable characters, many new biomes, hundreds of items, but also general features involving level generation, secrets, odd ways for navigation, traps, natural hazards like fire and dynamic water and more NPCs to interact with.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Endless-Mode Roguelike play, with increasingly stronger monsters and challenges. You can play as long as you like and compete with people on the daily leaderboards. There are two playable characters at the moment, and the amount of content is constantly increasing. Content will not only be added to the later parts of the game, but instead, the game will constantly increase in variety of features in all stages of play.”

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

“No price changes are planned for the full version.”

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

“The community can talk to me (dek) at any time through twitter (https://twitter.com/dekdev), check out the game blog on http://www.pathtothesky.com/. Feel free to let me know what you think! :)”
