What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Avalon is being developed by a very small team and so far most of it has been a one man job. The game is being designed with expandability in mind. I want to take ideas and visions others have to add into this game so I am very open to comments and suggestions. Gathering feedback from passionate players will help me understand what is working and what is not, what needs improvement and to make sure the game is as enjoyable as it can be. Also in the end I too can play the game I always wanted to play!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“A rough estimate will be a period of about 6 to 8 months. If its too short that won't give me the time to add all the cool ideas and things into the game that others suggest. Any longer and I would be afraid players might loose patience and/or interest with a long dragged out EA.”

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

“More polished, balanced and include more content and many other cool things that I am confident players will mention. Content such as more starships, resources, items, factions, facilities, unique locations, props, creatures, etc are easy to add since the game is being designed with expandability in mind. Also Steam achievements are something that I am looking to add in. In the end I envision the game to be larger and simply better. Check out my planned feature list.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Game is currently entering beta. All features listed in the description are in place and working.”

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

“Full version of the game will be priced higher since it will be a bigger game and there will be much more added content.”

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

“Rest assured I plan on being very active with the community. I am not one to release an EA title only to abandon it. Remember, I also want to play this game! So I will be posting updates and announcements regarding the development process, making notes of feedback and suggestions as I go along. I will also post updates on my website like new screenshots, developer videos and let's plays showing new features and game play.”

Journey through space and explore unlimited sectors, stations, and planet surfaces in this sci-fi adventure game. Take command of a large starship, it's shuttles, rovers and even crew! Interact with many ships from large capital ships to small fighter groups, some will help you, others will attack. Dock at stations to talk to other travelers and personnel, visit shipyards, or shops such as manufacturers, science labs, bars, casinos, academies and more. Fly shuttles down into planet atmosphere, land and use rovers to explore planet surfaces and even exit rover to explore on foot! On planets there are many things to find and discover such as resources, artifacts, lifeforms, alien creatures, ruins, facilities, and more. Features a full random creation system where no two games are the same!




CURRENT FEATURES:

• Unlimited randomly generated space sectors, stations and planets to explore

• Numerous space ship types including everything from massive capital ships to small fighter groups



• Interact with ships such as a prison cruiser, which will allow you to hire prisoners to train as crew, price is cheap but watch out they can cause troubles on board such as theft, murder, hijack, etc.

• Build structures on planets such as refineries, starports, agricultural domes and several other types of facilities for steady income or production

• Destroy asteroids to collect valuable resources

• Multiple ways to win including several minor goals as well as the main goal


Note: This is the current features list. The game is early access and more features are to come! This game is being designed with expandability in mind. As a result there are extra place holders in certain areas throughout the game listed as coming soon.

Planned future features:
These are just some things that I would like to add in upcoming versions as the early access version matures...
• Player ship upgrades such as hull, firepower, laser efficiency, max fuel and energy storage, etc
• Lots more creature types and props on planet surfaces
• More starship types and factions of course
• More space stations and types of shops
• More different types of items and resources
• More planetary facility and location types

So even more cool stuff!
