What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Blasters of the Universe currently offers a complete single level experience with a variety of weapons right now. We'll be expanding the game out with a variety of new weapon components to add to your arsenal. We will also be adding more levels and enemies to battle. We hope to work with the community to build awesome weapons you want to play with as well as get input on the feel and pace of the game as it evolves.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Blasters of the Universe will be in Early Access for about 6 to 12 months.”

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

“Blasters of the Universe will always offer a enjoyable experience that Early Access players can pick up and play. We have a full story planned with the main protagonist, Alwyn, for release that will play out across all of the levels. We'll also have a number of new items and unlocks that players will be able to experience for the first time when the full game is released.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Blasters offers a complete experience right now with one playable level and a variety of weapons and parts to take into battle.”

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

“The price may increase when the full game is released.”

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

“We want to work with the community to help create awesome new items to take into battle as well as get input on gameplay balance and feel. We want to know what you like and what you don't like, and of course any bugs you might encounter.”
