What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are looking for player feedback to make Bombslinger even better that what -we think- it already is.
We've been developing Bombslinger for a year and half and we believe involving players in the process more actively will allow Bombslinger to reach its true, explosive potential.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're planning to stay in Early Access until the end of Q3 2016. That date could shift a bit depending on the feedback we'll be getting but we're not currently planning on it.”

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

“The full version of Bombslinger will feature more content:

  • local multiplayer battle mode (coming during Early Access).
  • more (procedural) levels and environments
  • more enemies and bosses
  • more items

We already did our best to ensure that as far as Early Access games go, Bombslinger is a fairly polished experience but we're looking forward to the next few months to make it even shinier!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The initial Early Access version of Bombslinger includes 4 procedural levels spread over 2 environments and roughly 50% of the enemies and items we're planning on having in the full release.”

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

“We're currently planning on increasing the price of Bombslinger once it releases out of Early Access.”

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

“We're releasing Bombslinger on Early Access to get feedback and improve the game so...

Talk with us!

We're inviting every Bombslinger player to share their thoughts here on the Bombslinger Steam community group.

Beta branch

We will create a beta branch to allow for testing of upcoming features and fixes before they hit the stable public branch.
