What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As gamers we are big fans of an open approach to game development. To create the best game possible we want to let the gaming community participate in the decision-making. We plan to actively engage with the players and are open to feedback and suggestions.

The Early Access program allows us to collect all the information we need to improve and expand the current version of Liftoff.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“If everything goes as planned, we hope to release the final version in 2016.”

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

“The player is central in our plans. We feel we have a solid basis with our Early Access version. Feedback from the community will help us decide what the future of Liftoff will look like!
Currently, we are mainly focussing on some key aspects of the simulation before we add more complex layers to the game. Future updates will consist of both new features and content: more drone parts, environments, race functionality, track building, extra games modes, and a compelling multiplayer mode.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We consider the current version of Liftoff a solid base for an exciting platform to come. The current version is playable and focuses on basic functionality and realistic flight simulation, a key component to test before adding extra layers to the experience.

Depending on the feedback we get from the gaming community we might decide to expand the scope of the game.”

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

“Everyone brave enough to try out an unfinished product, and share feedback with the developers deserves a discount in our opinion. You'll get the Early Access version at a nice discount price. We plan to raise the price once the game is feature complete.”

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

“We feel the player has a central role in helping us create our game. Not only do we hope to improve the current version of the game, but we are also interested in suggestions on how to improve and expand the game with more content and features.

The current version of the game includes a simple-to-use feedback tool, so involvement is easy and quick.”

Update 0.10.7 in memory of Blue Falcon



Update 0.10.7 is an update dedicated to the community. We celebrate two beautiful people, Christian Schweda (DerHonk) who has become a respected track creator for Liftoff and the famous JC Culpepper (Project Blue Falcon) who shared his wisdom and passion for the sport but sadly passed away last week.


CHANGELIST
  • Added new Blue Falcon skin for the Le Hyphy frame dedicated to JC Culpepper
  • Added new official Straw Bale and Pine Valley tracks and races designed by DerHonk
  • Fixed issue with mouse cursor being visible during play
  • Fixed issue that prevented you from changing camera angle in-game


PROJECT BLUE FALCON

About a week ago Liftoff was featured on the Project Blue Falcon channel run by JC Culpepper. JC seemed to really enjoy it and the team was excited to see Liftoff featured on a great channel. Soon after the video appeared on his channel, we were contacted by some of our community members who told us JC had just passed away. This is very sad news: JC was a much respected Youtube content creator, dedicated to sharing his passion for FPV racing. He will be missed greatly by everyone! All love and sympathy to JC’s family and friends.


NEW OFFICIAL TRACKS BY DERHONK

DerHonk doesn’t need an introduction. Anyone who has played multiplayer or downloaded tracks from the Steam Workshop has come across his amazing track creations. It’s fair to say the team at LuGus Studios is a huge fan of his work. Players are as excited about seeing one of his track being released as about the official updates for the game, which says a lot! Seeing how DerHonk plays such a huge role providing great content for Liftoff, we decided to make it official. For the last few weeks DerHonk has been hard at work creating new official tracks for Liftoff. In our 0.10.7 update we are releasing two of these tracks: one in Straw Bale and one in Pine Valley. His tracks follow the design rules set by the team, and focus on clean visuals and a nice flow, with both technical and speedy sections. While these official tracks won’t be as fantastical and over-the-top as some of his hobby creations, you can rest assured, he’s also still making and sharing those on a regular basis on the Steam Workshop!

Reviews

“Having spent about 15 minutes messing about in the skies myself, I couldn’t help but be reminded of early Wipeout games – solely down to the fact that Liftoff feels like unadulterated fun.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“The level of detail that’s put into the game shows that they’ve really considered the real experience of flying FPV miniquads and translated it into their simulator.”
Propwashed

“Something that I’ve found very impressive has been just how open with their community the development team have been.”
