What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I am a solo developer, and the time has come for my team of me, myself, and I to bring in other passionate gamers to play with Mr. Donovan, offer feedback on their experience, and help me polish and shape the game in ways I wouldn't be able to do on my own.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“At least four months, and up to one year.”

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

“The full version will, crucially, come with an end game. In addition to this, there will be more abilities, items, pets, and environments. I am also planning to develop a hoard mode as a brutal way to practice your abilities.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core experience is complete, as are some special abilities, multiple environments, and a variety of pets and enemies. The main feature missing is the end game. The early access content will also most likely double in size for the full version, and I do anticipate there will be much fewer bugs.”

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

“Yes, the price will go up as the content of the game will drastically expand for the full version. Now is a great time to buy!”

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

“Being a solo developer, I believe the involvement of the Steam community will be crucial to the overall success of the game, as it will allow me to polish and improve every aspect of the gameplay. It is very important to me that the game is truly enjoyed by others. I am thus very inviting to all suggestions, and would love to hear about bugs, likes, dislikes, wish lists, and anything else that you believe should be brought to my attention (through the discussions link on the Mr. Donovan Steam Page).

About This Game

You are the strong, determined, and awesomely dashing young astronaut who has crash-landed on a not particularly inviting alien planet. Your ship is in dire need of repairs, and you must roam this lush new world in order to scavenge the resources needed.

Prepare to get lost on an exotic and dangerous sci-fi planet!

Along the way you will discover adorable pets, but they will only love you if you love them back. Once you gain their affections, they can assist you in defending against stubborn robots, giant evil flowers, and otherworldly ghosts. When these enemies attack - have no fear. Your special abilities (and good looks) can be used in multiple ways to offer protection.

From cloning to teleporting, you will adore the whimsy and variety this fast paced, and utterly unique game -- this SOBO -- has to offer!

Are you ready to...
  • discover a wide variety of meticulously crafted, colorful, alien environments?
  • earn the love of precocious pets, and odd creatures?
  • heartlessly place and utilize your pets as towers in elaborate defensive schemes?
  • manage not only a variety of rather essential items, but also mystifying (perhaps even mystical) abilities?
  • experience virtual environments that actually change with each passing day?
