What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“First of all I think it’s important to be transparent with my community,and it's my first public project that’s why I think I need to be very close to people who buy Hardware Engineers.

I want them to participate in the development process by exchanging their experience when the game is in progress.

Second, I’m independent and work practically alone on Hardware Engineers, it means that I really need external opinion.

Third, I think that if people can buy Hardware Engineers when I develop it, it will allow me to develop it faster and better.

The quality and player satisfaction are my first priorities in my work.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The Early access is scheduled for some 6-12 months dependent on the success of the game.”

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

“In the final version all of the features describe in the shop page will be available and probably more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the current version many features are not completely done yet. At the moment only basic mechanism of the game and the engine can be playable.”

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we add new content and features.”

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

“The gameplay will evolve with your ideas and suggestions. Feel free to send me personally what you think about Hardware Engineers and how I can improve some part of it.”
