Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“It's not done yet! Player feedback and testing will help ensure that Cloudbase Prime is the best it can be! Balance, content, fun-factor: I hope it's all good already, but with player feedback I can make sure of it!

It's an honor to interact with players on forums/reddit/etc., and I look forward to it.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Cloudbase Prime will leave early access in early 2017.”

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

“One more zone (of six) will be added, along with more boss fights, more levels and more robot suit powers! Many levels will get more objectives and fixbots to rescue, as well.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“5 of 6 planned zones are available. A few more level objectives will get added to existing zones before release, as well!

Cloudbase Prime is largely bug free in testing on a variety of systems. More testing via Early Access could uncover exciting new crashes and bugs, though!”

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

“I'm reasonably sure that the game will be the same price after Early Access, but pricing things is hard!”

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

“Community feedback on what's fun, and what crashes, will help shape Cloudbase Prime into the best gas giant robot launching game ever. Thank you!”

Cloudbase Prime beta 0.12 released!



Cloudbase Prime's beta now! The big thing here is that the game's story is now complete. It has end credits and everything! There's a new story level and a pretty hefty boss fight. Also, I apparently hadn't released the ice ammo yet. It's hidden somewhere in 5-1 if I remember correctly.

These levels took a while. Complex story scenes really take a lot of effort, and 6-boss is my most complex yet. 6-2 was no slouch, either!

I hope you enjoy the update and, as always, am looking forward to hearing your feedback.

added:

  • 6-2: get help to go and attack the tower's evil robot factory!
  • 6-boss: the end boss!
  • ice ammo
  • win music! most non-boss levels now have win music that joyfully blares out your victory.
  • fixbot heals are now more noticeable
  • fixbots no longer talk every time you respawn
  • powers are now introduced in 1-1's survival mode, too

fixed:
  • player no longer gets stuck on tiny terrain edges at low speeds
  • homing weapons no longer lock onto dead stuff
  • fixed jump drop pod in 1-intro
  • fixed fixbot names being at odd angles on 6-1
  • fixed homing hands getting stuck in "lockon" mode sometimes
  • fixed angled and extra-large terrain breaking grappling hook
  • fixed grappling while on rails

Cloudbase Prime alpha 0.11.4 released!

This is hopefully the last in a flurry of alpha releases to get the current stuff in the game up to "beta" quality. Its main features are auto-quality and more in-game settings options! If anything's missing, please feel free to make requests.

The game also now has a splash screen, but it shouldn't slow down your game bootups at all (except perhaps the first time, while the automatic quality check is running!)

changed:

  • auto-quality assignment on first run
  • new in-game graphics and keybinding settings.
  • sound settings now have separate settings for sound, voice, and
    music.
  • a splash/loading screen
  • tutorial text now reflects key bindings.
  • increased minimum animation quality
  • increased minimum lighting quality (tell me if things are too slow! seemed fine on my min-spec machine)

fixed:
  • fixed 2-boss's core model loading improperly.
  • fixed charge shot possibly getting stuck on hand after closing the Strategy HUD.
  • fixed giant lockon dot indicators while using the Strategy HUD

“...a high-flying, wonderfully exhilarating central mechanic and very, very silly voice acting.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Great visuals, fun gameplay and hilarious audio make this a game we can't recommend highly enough.”
