What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Steam Early Access is an excellent opportunity for us to begin the next stage of development for Tower Unite.

There are still a lot of features we plan to implement, and releasing on Early Access will allow us to exceed the expectations of our fans and our community.

We want to ensure our community is part of our development throughout the process. Our game is unique due to it's diverse, varying gameplay. We want to expand the game based on feedback in ways that we could never imagine on our own.

Early Access allows us to realize our dream game. We want to create the best possible experience for a wide audience, and we can't do that alone. We will use Early Access to address concerns, gather additional data from gameplay experiences, and balance the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to leave Early Access in 2018.”

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

“We plan to ship with more Game Worlds, all the various plaza activities, a fully functional arcade, additional player avatar customization, ocean exploration, more advanced condo customization tools, Workshop support, and the features we promised our backers. We also want to ship the game on Mac OS X and Linux.”

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

“The price will not change during early access.”

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

“Since it's inception, Tower Unite has been all about the players.
By listening to our community, we have been able to build a game that has broad appeal
across multiple genres.
We are constantly welcoming new people into our diverse community to contribute ideas to the game.
If we find ideas that our players will enjoy, we start developing those concepts into new features for Tower Unite.

Our game has always depended on it's fans, they crowdfunded us to bring this to life.
In return, we will be constantly updating the game with new features, and bug fixes.

We also have a bi-weekly live stream with production updates from the developers.
