What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We'd like The Inner Sea to be truly enjoyed by it's players and we feel that the only way to build a great experience is with the players input and feedback.
Although we have a backlog of features we want to add to the game, there’s still a lot of room for you to suggest new features and content or balance tweaks. Above all we want players to help us shape The Inner Sea into a game way better than what we would come up with by ourselves.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We can't precise exactly. While we've got several months worth of content and new features planned, the early access period will also depend on the players and where you want us to lead the game to.”

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

“While the core gameplay elements are already present in the game, we're still lacking a number of features that we plan on adding as well as content that's already in the works.

Some of these are:
  • sea monsters
  • additional factions
  • additional ships
  • additional skills
  • more graphical options

As well as tons of balancing, bug fixing and general game optimization!
We'll be paying special attention to the community and what features you would like us to add to the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“As mentioned before the core gameplay elements are already present in the game, although still lacking a bit on the variety side and game balancing, you're free to explore, trade and battle your way through The Inner Sea!”

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

“Yes, because the game is being released in early access there's a lower entry price to reflect the unfinished state of the game. We will be raising the price gradually as we get more features and content in.”

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

“We will be paying close attention to the players feedback and suggestions. Be it through facebook, twitter, forums or email we'd like you guys to contact us cause we feel that's the only way we can truly build an awesome game!”

The Inner Sea Times (vol 5)

Ahoy there Captains,

It's been a while since the last announcement and we've been cranking on the next update.
On the content side we're almost finished, the new features are generally speaking working and a lot of fixes, ui revamps and other touches here and there have been made.
What remains to be done for this update is a lot of balancing, both on the ship stats and the city building mechanics (things like resources required, days it takes to build and bonuses that apply and so on) and some bug fixing. After we're happy with this, a period of intense play testing will follow, although the game has been getting progressively more stable with each new update, we still find the ocasional crash now and then, we really want to minimize them as much as possible so everyone can have a good experience.

We'll leave you with a few screens, it's taking a bit we know but we're almost there!









Your fellow captains,
Ivo & Antoine
