What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The EVERSPACE™ Beta is already fully playable, balanced, and generally free of bugs. Over 10,000 players have been enjoying it since our Kickstarter in August 2015 and we believe we got a pretty solid space shooter in place already, but it is still lacking a few elements that we originally envisioned. Now, we would like to give everyone the opportunity to join in and get their hands on the game to help us create the best possible space shooter for you.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Featuring the scope that we promised in our Kickstarter, we plan to release the full version on May 26, 2017. Still, unexpected hurdles might occur during ongoing development or some ideas we had in mind might turn out to be not so good after all making us change the direction, postpone promised features or even drop them entirely.”

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

“Over the next months, we will gather feedback from our community and work with you to improve EVERSPACE™ wherever reasonable based on the budget and the resources at our disposal. Bear in mind that we are a fairly small team of 12 developers. We have been working together on space shooters for over ten years but major additions like real-time multiplayer simply are out of scope, at least for the time being.

These are the features that we plan to add over the next few months:
  • A captivating fully voice-acted story, featuring interesting and thoughtfully designed characters
  • Hardcore Mode with permadeath for die-hard roguelike fans
  • VR-Support for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of EVERSPACE™ is based on the Beta which was released on July 29, 2016. Since then, we have fixed most of the bugs reported by our backers, did some tweaks and added a few new features. The most notable changes since Beta are a more challenging boss fight, introduction of some voice-acted events as well as improved overall balancing. You can find the complete changelog on our forums:

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

“Based on the community feedback over the last couple of months, we decided not to raise the price when EVERSPACE™ hits full release. We will rather offer the Original Game Soundtrack, the Official Art Book, a set of Official Wallpapers and yet unannounced game content as separate DLCs and/or bundles which backers with the appropriate tier level will receive for free.”

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

“We have been working closely with our fans since our Kickstarter in August 2015 and we will continue to do so. Just to give you an idea, the Early Access version 0.1 came with over 250 new features, tweaks and bug fixes, largely based on community feedback since the initial Alpha release. Since then we have had four major updates with almost a 1000 changes combined. You can follow the discussions on our forums and we would like to invite you to contribute as well:

We've just released a new update. Highlights include functional cockpit displays and the addition of a mysterious alien race, referred to as "The Ancients".

You can see the complete list of changes below.

We're able to offer this update on Mac as well, however with a slight delay of about 8 hours as something went wrong during build process. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Version 0.5 and 0.6 fell off the back of a gigantic space truck, if you're wondering. Kidding aside, a lot of comments indicated that version numbers were often being associated with completion percentage (though they're really just numbers to us), so we've decided to play along and go with version 0.7 - as the inclusion of the functional cockpits, the Glyphs and the Ancients are all big additions and we're fast-approaching full release.

  • Further decreased inertia dampening for Infinite Drift subroutine

  • Okkar forces and Colonial warships now won't be able to track you down in cloud field locations
  • Shields now start with 0 hp and immediately regenerate when picked up
  • Increased Plasma Mine life time and prevent triggering by user

  • Some minor UI changes
  • Tweaked color grading to work better in some environments
