What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe that games are at their best when they're shared with friends and want to bring that same thought process to the development of Interstellar Transport Company. We had a vision for Interstellar Transport Company and feel like we've reached a point where the game is very fun to play and most of the larger features are complete, however we want to be sure we have feedback from those of you who will be playing it for years to come. There are many directions we can take the game, and believe that your opinions are crucial when fine-tuning our gameplay mechanics and ultimately deciding where the game should go next.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Under a year. Our previous game "World VR Competition" was in early access for only 4 months. While Interstellar Transport Company is a more ambitious game, we should have it feature complete in under a year. We plan to work with you, the players, every step of the way. We will continue to update the game after full release.”

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

“Before we leave Early Access we will be implementing these things:

Features

  • VR Support (with motion controller support)
  • Contracts and subsidies
  • Stock markets and IPOs
  • Politics and factional relations
  • Auto-reorder and scheduling of one time use rockets
  • Techtree and research points so that you can more quickly gain access to ships and buildings
  • Localization
  • Mod and workshop support
  • More multiplayer options with a ladder and auto-matchmaking

Content

  • More starships and rockets
  • More planetside infrastructure and buildings
  • More planet types
  • Galaxy generation will have more options
  • Better variety of random events

Also there will surely plenty of other ideas that us and the community comes up with along the way!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“It is playable and fun, but not yet feature complete. If you want a fully polished and complete game, we ask that you wait for the full launch. The game's core mechanics are all there now, you can setup routes, manage infrastructure, colonize planets, build and assign ships to routes, help colonies grow and flourish and you can already play AI and multiplayer matches. Major features not yet completed include language localization, VR support, research points and techtree, mod and workshop support, more variety in random events, and contracts / subsidies from planetary authorities. We will provide regular updates to the game which will gradually add these features in.”

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we complete new content and features.”

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

“We want your ideas and feedback! What works? What isn't quite working? How can we make things better? Please post on the Steam Discussion Boards here on Steam, we will be there every single day! We also currently do vlogs on youtube and communicate with our fans daily on Twitter. We plan to patch the game with new content and features very regularly.

Early Access Roadmap 8-10-2017

I know, I know.. Most everyone else posts these sorts of things a week or two after early access launch. We hope to not be like everyone else though. We strive to be friggin' awesome! Along with totally transparent.. I thought it would be helpful to everyone deciding whether or not to buy the game now to see exactly what we have planned for the full version, without digging for the information, so we're also posting it now. We expect to be in early access for a year.

In very rough chronological order:
-Ranked multiplayer We think ITC would benefit greatly from a competitive ranked multiplayer ladder system. It's possible this is done before EA launch, but if not, it will be ready in the weeks after
-More cargoes To give players even more reasons to travel interstellar for hard to find natural resources. Also weaponry which will be important for the next item...
-Politics This will make the game incredibly more dynamic. Civil wars will break out and you will need to choose a side and embargo the other, reputations will change depending on factional politics and who you are servicing, planets and systems will change hands, handle huge weapon demands during times of war etc...
-Contracts Local governments, business, and authorities will approach you with contracts that you can fulfill for big bonuses and penalties upon failure.
-Techtree and Research Currently ships are released at predefined days. We will give players more control over what ships are researched and also give companies exclusive rights for a period of time to ships they had a large hand in developing.
-Stock Market and IPOs We feel this is an essential feature for the management side of the game.
-VR Support We love VR and have been planning since day one to add VR support.
-Mod and Workshop support We're not precisely sure how much modding support we can offer yet, but it will at least allow new ships, planet types, and some game balancing variables to be changed. Possibly much more.

Also we will be adding these things periodically throughout development:
-Localizations to other languages
-More starships and rockets
-Better / more realistic flight paths for ships
-More options in galaxy generation
-More planetside infrastructure

There's also a hundred different directions we can take this game. It really depends on the feedback we get from all of you during early access. I can't wait to see what you all think, and where you would like to take ITC, starting in just 6 days!

And finally, just for fun, a shot of a multiplayer test we did last night! It works great!
