What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access has been planned from the start as a part of the development. We want to tweak, polish and balance this game with players. We want to create this game with you.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The plan can change, but minimum is about 6 months at this moment.”

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

“These are the main features which we really want to have in the final version:
  • More unique races - we will keep adding new races during EA
  • Complex diplomacy and espionage
  • More technologies in research tech tree
  • More victory conditions
  • Complete AI
  • More graphics (2D/3D), animations and effects
  • More sounds and music
  • More tutorials
  • Race Designer
  • Localizations

You can see the list of features in Backlog on Trello. Some features with lower priority will not be in the final version if there is not enough time, but it can be changed based on your feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is in Alpha state and currently contains environment, combat, research, basic diplomacy and exploration. So some content is still missing, but it's playable.”

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

“The final price for the game will be higher.”

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

“There is public Trello, where anyone can see the current progress and planned tasks. AI part of the game is open source on GitHub.”
