What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Since the success of our Kickstarter, the community enabled us to develop Dimension Drive with them to create a game that is truly unique. Now, we are at a stage were Dimension Drive is a solid experience and we want to open it to a bigger community through Early Access so that together we can make a great shoot'em up. Balancing the levels in the story mode requires a lot of iteration to make it perfect, and we need you to work closely with us to create a great experience !

Finally, as an exclusive for Early Access players you will be able to fight in The Multiverse. Every 2 weeks with each new update, there will be one new level where you will compete against all other pilots to beat the high-score in the global rankings. Effectively, you will never run out of something new to play while we are in Early Access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It is hard to estimate exactly how long Dimension Drive will be in Early Access, though we are aiming for a period of around 6 to 12 months.”

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

“The full version will be the definitive shoot'em up experience we always envisioned. At the time of writing we can at least say that the full version will expand and improve in the following areas:

- more story
- more art
- more animations
- more world
- more levels
- more game modes
- more enemies
- more bosses
- more weapons
- more abilities
- more Steam integration (cloud save, trading cards, leaderboards...)

Moreover, as we are always paying close attention to what the community really wants there may be extra features, levels or game modes we have not yet planned and that will come through meaningful conversation with you, the players!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“It is awesome! Not kidding :P However, it is incomplete. The current state at Early Access launch includes the following:

- 2 Worlds with a total of 8 levels
- 2 boss fights that will make you rethink what you know about shoot'em ups
- 6 minibosses
- The story up until the end of World 2
- 3 games modes: single player, local co-op and The Multiverse (bi-weekly challenge)
- 2 difficulty settings (Normal and Hard)”

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

“The price may increase after Early Access depending on the extra features we add during its time in it.”

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

“We will work with you to ensure Dimension Drive is the best game it can be through a number of channels: Steam Community forums, our Discord, website, Twitter, and Facebook. We have already been working for over a year with Kickstarter backers to polish game to its current state. We plan to keep our open development philosophy were you see what we do and can provide us feedback so that together we can improve it and make it awesome(r)!

Update #29: Let's add boss fights!



Hello!!

3 build updates in less than a week! Something must be happening, this can't really be normal? Seriously now, we are still adding content till the very last day. And as this will be an Early Access release we will keep on adding, and adding, and adding...
This one comes with a very much needed fix to the boss of world 1 that was going a bit nuts if you died in the battle against it. Now, it should be nuts but the right kind of nuts, you know?
Also looking at some of the difficulty spikes and having a very long internal discussion we decided not to make level 2-3 easier to smooth that spike. Instead we made 2-1 and 2-2 much harder. Part of this consisted in adding some nice boss fights we didn't have there:



Ah, and while we were at it we made the boss fight of level 1-3 a bit harder also :)



Hope you like the new feel of the game. In the next build we'll try to improve a bit more level 2-1 and give some love to level 2-4. Considering the pace we are working in these days prior to release I guess we can have more updates before the end of the week?

At this point I'm probably rambling and you don't really need to read all this, just go play...it's good we promise!

Oh, hey if you are still reading (really?) could you do us a favour and shout to the heavens that the game launches next February 16? Here, take this and share it:

About This Game

Dimension Drive is a Dual-Battlefield space shooter with a teleportation mechanic. It seamlessly combines shooting and puzzle mechanics. Dimension Drive will teleport you into a comic book styled sci-fi space opera set in a multidimensional universe. The Ashajuls, a cruel multidimensional alien race, are attacking our universe. Fight as Jackelyne Tywood (a.k.a. Jack) in The Manticore, a legendary ship capable of teleporting across space and dimensions. Uncover the mysteries of your past and the origin of the Dimension Drives with your trusty friend and A.I., "V.E.R.A.", at your side.

Features


  • A New Type of Shoot’Em Up: Dimension Drive is a Dual-Battlefield vertical Shoot’Em Up with a focus on smart, quick teleporting.
  • Rich Sci-fi Adventure: Unfold the secrets of the Dimension Drives and your past, teleport across the multiverse fighting the ultimate threat, and meet new races and allies!
  • Clever Mix of Mechanics: A seamless combination of levels focusing on strategic shooting and real-time puzzles will make you question what you know about shoot'em ups.
  • 2 games on your screen: Dimension drive is a unique shoot'em up where you're fighting two battle fields at once.
  • 4 difficulty modes: Normal, Hard, Extreme and WTF! Offer different challenges for different play styles. Play with shields in Normal, or go to the old-school route with one hit kills in Hard and Extreme. If you are up for the challenge try WTF! and try your luck at beating the game with one single hit.
  • Single player and local co-op: Play solo or enjoy our unique take on 2 player mode: total cooperative where both players share everything down to their lives, play as a team or die.
  • Comicbook art style: Video game meets comic. Experience the story of Jack through the motion comics and awe at the colour rich in-game comic art style. Who said space was black?
  • Energy management: The Manticore is powered by the Dimension Drive energy. Carefully strategize and decide when and where are the best places to teleport.
  • Advanced scoring system: Obtain the best score in the leaderboards.
  • Teleportation! (We said that already, didn't we?)
