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?

“It could vary based on beta feedback, but Cloudbase Prime is currently scheduled to leave Early Access around August!”

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

“Cloudbase Prime is now pretty far along! Some extra niceties will hopefully be worked in by launch, like Steam achievements/cards, but besides that, a little more polish, and bug fixes, things are looking pretty done!

I also may improve game balance based on player feedback, as that's a big part of why the game's in Early Access in the first place.

I'm considering adding controller support, but no guarantees there! The game was designed for mouse/keyboard first, and it might not work out. The game does work pretty well with a Steam Controller custom layout already, though!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is now story complete! Cloudbase Prime is now in the refinement/bug fixing stage

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 0.14: controller support!



It took a lot of tuning, but Cloudbase Prime is working well with controllers now! Even Switch joycons, if you pair both of them! Since you look up and down a LOT in this game, there are dedicated buttons to snap your look down/forward/up.

A note on Steam controllers: I'm curious about your feedback here! Steam controllers emulate Xbox 360 controllers when possible! I do support that, but you're missing out on a good few Steam controller features then. You may want to use them in "mouse and keyboard" mode instead.

There are a good deal of other changes in here, too. A pile of bug fixes, an easier food chain mode, and a pretty cursor for menus.

Full change notes:

Added/changed:

  • Controller support!
  • New options menu (now controller-friendly)
  • Added hint text on how to throw balls and detach from grabbed terrain
  • Updated look bindings, they can now be customized. I tried to keep mouse sensitivity identical: tell me if I didn't!
  • Added snap look controls: up, down, forward. Only bound on controllers by default.
  • Reload/interact are now the same binding
  • You can now throw held items by hitting interact a second time.
  • New cursor for menus
  • Food Chain mode is now easier: collector has more HP, enemy factory stays vulnerable longer.
  • Improved control help text in 1-intro: better text, colored control bindings.
  • Added move help text to 1-intro.
  • Lowered fall death height on all levels in zone 5.
  • You can't change the direction of the architect while your hands are busy any more (caused animation bugs, confused people).
  • Exiting the end credits now requires you to press a specific button.

Fixed:
  • Improved corrupt save file handling, automatic loading of backups on failure.
  • Exit cannon can no longer be disabled by enemy terrain destruction
  • Fixbot voices are now consistently affected by the "voice" volume setting.
  • 6-boss no longer becomes harder the more you die... sorry about that.
  • Fixed duplicated subtitles, hand animation bugs in 5-intro.
  • Enemy shield repulsor is no longer active during 5-boss's intro cutscene.
  • Fixed Atlas's voice lines being too quiet in the intro to 6-boss.
  • Fixed 5-1's starting checkpoint not consistently respawning the player.
  • 5-1's food chain stuff no longer shows up outside of food chain mode.

Cloudbase Prime beta 0.13 released!

Hey look, new store art!


Beta 0.13 is out! It focuses on tutorials/help, while improving player movement with a new boost ability and swapping "survival" mode for a more fun "score attack".

With this beta release I now consider the game to be far friendlier to new players! I made this video to show off all of the new stuff in the game since it reached beta:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fz8J9exMPMk

We're pretty far along now, so get that Early Access feedback to me if you've got it. Release is getting close!

Full change list:

added:

  • Added a post-launch boost button (left ctrl by default!) to make level traversal faster and more fun
  • Added help manuals to the pause and HUB menus
  • Added/improved tutorials
  • Removed survival mode, replaced it with score attack
  • "Alternate" level modes are now locked until the primary mode is beaten
  • Strategy HUD is now always unlocked

fixed:
  • Fixed bunny balls being gigantic while held, especially when playing as the second character
  • Improved audio levels on some Atlas dialog in 6-boss
  • Strategy HUD now looks better with few unlocks, hinting at how many unlocks remain
  • The pause key binding now applies in the level picker menu
  • Gave freeze ammo a proper model in the HUB weapons menu
  • Empty strategy HUD text now reflects actual key bindings
  • Hitting escape with the key binding menu can no longer unpause the game
  • Hitting the strategy HUD key can no longer unpause the game.
