What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Venture Forth has been in development for over 3 years. We're getting close to only 3 months left and we feel it's time to crack this egg open a bit a let the world see what it's all about.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our target date has changed to account for the looming holiday season and to sneak in a couple more features for y'all.

January of 2017 is the new target.”

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

“Right now, we're focused on bug-fixing and asset adding. We'll be tweaking the cavern to have a few different designs and releasing with those, which will randomly load as the game starts.

Community modding will be supported to a small extent. We're looking forward to seeing what everybody can create!

We're also working on finalizing the UI and adding Steam features like Achievements and Trading Cards.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have a test-tool implemented in the front-end of the game that checks how it'll work with your system and selects optimal settings. It reports these settings back to the developer so we can check into reasons why performance issues might be occurring.”

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

“No. What you see is going to be the final price in January.”

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

“We can't wait to get feedback and help integrate it into the game. While many features are planned for future releases, we want to open up the public brain trust and ensure enjoyment for all. We can't wait to hear comments, good and bad... though we aren't looking forward to the scathing.”

About This Game

One of the most difficult adventure games you will ever come across, Venture Forth forces players to uncover one of many paths through the complex cave system using minimal hand-holding. So, if you're looking for a casual stroll, this isn't the game for you.

If you're looking for an adventure game that forces you to discover obscure pathways while being blocked by menacing and relentless enemies, Venture Forth will be more your speed. We guarantee that your initial play-through will be riddled with frustration followed by a rewarding sense of achievement when you find your way to new areas of the map.

Death and dead-ends will be frequent. Figuring out how to best use each of the tools you come across will be challenging. Finding the Heart will be relieving. Finding your way back out again, well, that will be maddening.

Best of luck, adventurer. You're going to need it.
