What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have a lot of ideas packed into this game, and a lot of ideas yet to implement! We want player input to mold and shape this into something radical! Which ideas should we pursue/drop? We'll know when you start playing and telling us what works and what doesn't.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Six months minimum.”

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

“The full version will have approximately twenty levels and four bosses. We have the first five levels and first boss ready for you now. We also have yet to add in decent sound effects, graphical effects, and more, so come along for the ride to see this stuff added in!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have the core game ready to play, including five levels and a boss. Most of the levels are long, challenging, and complex, so you will probably not beat them right away. WARNING: there are a few things in the trailer that AREN'T yet in the game, but there are some things in the game that AREN'T in the trailer! The missing bits are mostly a few unfinished levels that will arrive in a timely manner.”

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

“Yes, our Early Access costs a little more, so the final release will cost a bit less (about one-third less). Counter-intuitive, perhaps, but you'll easily get your money's worth by playing with unique features and level layouts that get changed or cut from the final game. Players of the final release will never experience many of the odd and charming things offered only during Early Access!”

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

“We will have polls and forum threads where users can chime in and cast their vote on what features need adding and what direction new levels should take.”

About This Game

The Sheeple are in trouble - they've been enslaved by the Drones - and it's all Patchman's fault! Now it's up to you to redeem Patchman, rescue the Sheeple, and uncover the awful secret behind the Drone army. Stay out of sight, wear clever disguises, search the forest for seeds, grow fruits and plants, tear down propaganda, awaken the Sheeple to break the control scheme, and power down those nasty robots!

All that and more awaits in Don't Be Patchman, a sneak-and-grow action/adventure game.

Premiering soon on SteamOS / Linux, followed by Windows and MacOSX releases - along with Steam Achievements, Trading Cards, and Cloud Saves.
