What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have the core gameplay of Maximum Override complete, but there is a lot we still want to experiment and add. We want to get the game out there to see how players find it, then develop the game with them.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are hoping to release it within 5 months.”

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

“Currently our plan is a few more levels, either 4-5 in total, and more variety in machines to take over.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have 2 cities which are randomly generated every playthrough - and two game modes.”

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

“The price will most likely increase over time.”

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

“We want to experiment with new machines and hear feedback from players - with this type of game we feel we can keep adding to it based entirely on whats fun”

Update 3! V0.9

- New 'Las Loco' city, with some new vehicles (Limo), and a fire breathing robosaur
- Bunch of new cars (Firetruck) and humans
- Fixed a lot of 'out of thread' errors and memory issues
- Fixed cops showing up in non cop cars
- Fixed cops firing at Tornado
- Fixed helicopter flip happening on all entities

Let us know any problems you have in the forums! This should be our last content release - after this we'll have another update with fixes and optimizations, then release out of early access

I've read reports about difficulty navigating the menu with controller - so the next update (the release one) should address that
