What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The aim is to create a good western experience and since it's being developed by a small indie team, we can use the Early Access system to get feedback, suggestions and test the game before the final release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It'll be released as soon as it has all major features in and is polished enough to be deemed a finished product.”

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

“The plan is to improve the questlines, improve the NPCs AI, add horses and improve the overall experience.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is already very mature, with most of the features already implemented, though is still needs testing and balance.

The current features are:
- Random world building with different biomes (desert, dunes, canyons, grasslands), vegetation, cities, forts, abandoned buildings
- Base Building
- Questlines
- Random revolvers and rifles, each time you find a gun it's built from random different parts
- Unique (more powerful) guns
- Lots of different ammunition
- Events and PvE: Lots of loots scattered around the world and lots of enemies to kill.
- Survival: Keep everything in check: food satiety, hydration, temperature, while running around in the desert
- Permadeath (with a twist), each player have a stash that he can bury anywhere in the world, if you die, you lose everything, except what's in your stash, but choose carefully where to bury it, because other players can steal your items if they find your stash.
- Different classes giving a different set of starting equipments
- Lots of clothings and equipments
- Friendship mechanic, add your friends, track them in the world, unite and conquer the west!”

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

“We will increase the price as the game gets closer to a final version, eventually reaching the full price intented for the finished product.”

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

“We will collect bug reports, crash reports, suggestions and opinions and use them to polish the game, decide what to add next and properly balance the game.”
