What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“After extensive development, we believe Mushroom Crusher Extreme is now ready to be experienced and enjoyed by players. However, there are still some features and tweaks left to be completed. The biggest addition yet to come is online and offline co-op multiplayer, both of which require substantial testing with the players. That is why we are entering Early Access. Valuable user feedback and extra financial support will help us make MCE the best game it can be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning, and will do our best, to release version 1.0 within the next six months.”

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

“Apart from polish, bug fixing and possible content additions, our main goal is implementing online and offline co-op multiplayer to MCE.
Among other planned additions are such features as the Dictionary (codex of in-game terms) and Music Room (a collection of all in-game music).”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the current state, MCE is fully playable. Most of the planned content is in and the game is roughly 70% feature complete. Players can complete all the levels in single player mode. Bugs and other minor issues can be encountered, and we count on the player feedback to help us identify and fix them.”

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

“Once the final version of the game is out, the price will increase.
All the players, who have purchased the game with the Early Access price, will be entitled to the final version and its updates for free.”

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

“We have a planned outline for bi-weekly updates for MCE. After each one, we will be posting a changelog, open for discussion. The update outline is flexible, depending on the issues that come up and, possibly, players’ suggestions.
The list of currently known and worked on bugs will be available for the community.
We’ll do our best to respond to the comments, but, even if we don’t get the time to answer - you can be sure all feedback is taken into account, one way or another.”
