What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe that early feedback is key to making a truly great game. Players can try out recent builds of the game, let us know what they love or hate, and steer development. What we made in 9 months is already fun, but we've set out to do an action adventure game of AAA scope, and to get to that point, you, the player is key.
We're always open to your feedback. It will guide us as we explore what features and mechanics work best.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Planning on release in 2016, but we will take as long as it takes to flesh out, polish and deliver the best experience and gameplay. We're staying in Early Access up until pre-release, long past alpha and beta.”

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

“We’re making a BIG adventure game, so here’s a few things planned for a finished game:

  • Beautiful environments to explore, set in AI-dominated world
  • Crazy and fun new mechanics to keep players interested:
    MegaSphere is not only platforming, guns and robots, but also zero-g navigation, AI hacking, ability to control mechs and ships…
  • Mind-blowing, deep plot with twists and turns
  • Professionally narrated logs and notes to discover, store and read/listen to
  • New enemies and bosses to tear servo-from-servo
  • More stuff: guns, enemies, bosses, upgrades, suit modifications..
  • >Your suggestion here

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“MegaSphere is already 10 months into development, there’s a lot of fun to be had already:

  • Unlimited replayability in a randomized level that challenges you every time you restart
  • 7 awesome weapons, 5 upgrades, each having 3 tiers leading to more than a hundred combinations
  • 10 enemies out of 4 basic types, with up to 4 variations
  • Dynamic soundtrack that changes and adapts to events on screen
  • Item shops to buy ultimate doom-bringers and sell your loot
  • A short arc of the main story that involves the events of the bigger game
  • A very special mini-boss that will give you the taste of what to expect in the final game!

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

“MegaSphere will rise in price at launch.”

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

“Development was always open and transparent, and we're keeping it that way. Join live art streams on Twitch, watch out for polls on Twitter, forums and Reddit. Suggest new features, changes to existing ones, and be vocal of things you enjoy or hate. We want you, the player, to be at the center of the development. Have a need to freeze grabbers with a gun that shoots canisters of liquid nitrogen? Want to challenge your aim and platforming skills in a separate massive arena level? Timed challenges? Leaderboards? Think multiplayer will be fun? Custom level editor with Workshop support? We’re all ears!

Hibernation in testing!

ICYM, I've been working hard on adding a way to stop/resume the game at almost any point and its called hibernation.



If you want to try it out, switch to development branch in steam, give in a spin and report back here or in the forum!

Thanks a lot for being very patient players!
