What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access feature opens us - developers a chance to deliver a better product and also involve community into the development of the game. The Extinction is a great example of early access advantages. The game was often redesigned, to finally fulfull my vision of the game. Seeing people's feedback let it perform amazingly well!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It's hard to tell how long it will take. It will end when it will be finished.. I guess. The full release may happen in the early 2017.”

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

“While it's in development, it's hard to tell how different it will look later. The game was getting redesigned a lot while development, and yet - it's still not finished. For sure, there will be a campaign with story and other goodies mentioned in the description.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version gameplay-wise contains almost all features that will be available in the full version. It's most likely possible that later there will be some features I don't have any idea about just now.”

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

“After the more content is added - yes, it will eventually raise gradually.”

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

“I'll be reading their ideas, thoughts on a community forum. That's how people have a chance to add their ideas to the game.”

What is going on with the development? (The Extinction)


I'm extremely sorry that I haven't informed you about the progress.
I took a loong break because of my last school exams, that are the most important exams in our education process in Poland. It was my priority and I also had to take care of my film-making portfolio, so I didn't really had the time to do anything with the game. I created some minor things like quest system, new menus and tutorial, but there's still a lot to be done.
I'm getting back to work within few days. Don't worry, it's not like I've abandoned the project. ArrowGroundGames just consists of one, young person and also gamedev is not my daily job.

I'm extremely sorry once again.
Stay tuned for some more news.
