What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Dead Acres is in Early Access to gather feedback from players and evolve the game based on that feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Dead Acres is nearly finished. We may have 2-3 more months of development on it since we are making the game multiplayer. We are also looking to add VR support after launch. Other features will depend on player feedback.”

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

“The Early Access build has 2 levels which offer of 50 nights of play. The current build is single player only. The final build will have 8 levels, Campaign and Infinite mode, 200 days of gameplay (30+ hours), and offer 4 player co-op. Other features and improvements will depend on data and feedback gathered from players.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of the game is pre-alpha. Only 2 levels of the final 8 are playable at the moment, but we will soon push an update with multiplayer and new levels. Multiplayer mode bugs are the main delay right now.”

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

“While in Early Access we are offering the game at a reduced price (60% off) as a reward to those that put up with the rough early build, lack of multiplayer, and provide us with essential feedback to improve the overall product. Once we push the multiplayer update, the price will gradually rise until we do the full launch - at which point it will be fully priced.”

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

“We are hoping that players will be very vocal with their feedback as this is the only way we can fix problems and improve the game. Right now, we have an email address they can use to contact us directly and our steam forums are a great way to reach us.”

Holiday Update

Hey everyone! Dec update time! I know I haven't updated in a couple months, so I wanted to let you all know what is going on with Dead Acres development.

As I have been called out for several times, I am horrible at accurately projecting release dates. Sometimes the delays are my fault and sometimes they are due to occurrences that are out of my control. In this case it was kind of half and half. My main programmer went MIA. It's highly unlike him to not communicate and we are all a bit concerned for his safety. He has been with us for almost 2 years. We have brought on a new guy to help out, but it was one of the main reasons for the delay. The other issue was Dark Deception. This one is my fault and goes back to my (very) poor decision to develop 2 games at once. Dark Deception had a publisher milestone come due (we are working with a very well known AAA publisher), so we had to divert focus to DD for the past 2 months due to contractual obligations. It is looking pretty awesome so far though and I am working with Nikson (TJOC:Story Mode) on it.

So.....what about Dead Acres??? Yes, there is actually good news for that. I am getting things back to normal and have a little breathing room with DD now. When I last updated, Stone Cold was pretty much done minus the vehicle mechanics. That is still the case and you can expect to see some new levels early in 2018. So get ready to have some fresh gameplay in the near future. From now on, I'm not going to talk about the level release dates until they are 100% playable and all I have to do is press a button to update Steam with them.

That said, I just want to thank all of you for your patience and for not chewing me out daily over the past 2 momths :P. You guys are great fans and gamers and I'm 100% committed to finishing Dead Acres and fixing the bugs I've seen reported so far. If you are in the LA area, I may plan something fun for Dead Acres full launch and also give people a sneak peak at Dark Deception.

Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas to everyone!!
