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 live streams and weekly developer logs with production updates from the developers.

Hot Fix 0.4.0.3

Another hotfix that addresses many reported issues.

Note: For those who have multi-monitor setups, please be aware the game may start on the wrong screen after applying this patch. We have added a new graphics setting that will allow you to set the default monitor the game displays on. Once you set your default monitor in the graphics setting, it'll remember that setting the next time you start up the game.

Changes

  • Added event calendar and rules board to Plaza in the Transit Station
  • Reduced load times on the menu by removing the 3D background
  • Added default monitor selection as a graphic setting (for multi-monitor setups)
  • Condo map list no longer uses a horizontal scrollbar and will tile the maps properly (for those on 16:9 720p/1080p, you should see all the Condo maps at once now)
  • Improved the flashlight (no longer clips with nearby walls and is a lot more smooth)

Bug Fixes
  • Reduced stuttering
  • Reduced networking size for inventory hotbar items with the intention to fix full hot bars not working while in Plaza
  • Fixed an issue where FOV settings would reset when another player joins your server
  • Fixed mouse sensitivity resetting sometimes
  • Optimization: Highrise no longer uses an expensive ocean shader
  • Optimization: Highrise Tower in the distance was too detailed and caused performance issues
  • Fixed glass when viewed from the inside removing fog effects from the entire map (effects Highrise and other maps that use windows a lot)
  • Fixed Canvas Statue sprites rendering through water shaders (such as Underwater condo)
  • Fixed Canvas Statue sprites rendering through translucent things
  • Fixed Canvas normal map missing
  • Fixed underwater effects not working in first person
  • Fixed a grid box being visible in Highrise
  • Fixed a bug when you click off the splash screen, you'd lose input on the menu and have to click again to interact with the menu
  • Fixed a bug with the appearance UI that prevented certain resolutions from being able to interact with it
  • Fixed super low poly LOD being set on appearance character in the menu if you had view distance set to low
  • Fixed appearance editor in the menu having terrible lighting, making it hard to see certain effects and also it lacked shadows on the character
  • Fixed certain number UI inputs (stairs, poker bets) having float values
  • Minigolf: Fixed Forest having day night enabled
