What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to gather feedback and involve our community in Blazing Beaks development. On top of that, the game has a lot of elements which form various combinations and it's very difficult to playtest them all being a small team.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“At least 6 months, but it's very hard to tell. Our priority is to make an awesome game even if it would take more time than expected.”

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

“It is hard to tell precisely, because we also want the community to have influence on our game features. But what we know for sure is that the final version will have approximately 3 times more content compared to the initial Early Access release. That means:
  • more areas/locations
  • more weapons
  • more items and artefacts
  • more enemies and bosses
  • more secrets

Additionaly, the final version will have a different balance as more content requires balance changes and even more polish.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Current version of the game can be described as quality over quantity. We concentrated on the smaller part of the game and polished it as much as possible but that does not mean that the game does not have content. The game has 3 areas in Story mode, dozen of guns, 70+ items and artefacts and fully finished Tournament mode (co-op only) with 5 different modes. This makes up roughly 1/3 of all the planned content.”

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

“The price will increase as more content is added.”

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

“Community is the main reason why we decided to go Early Access in general. We want to communicate and inform our community about the game updates, get involved in the discussion about the game features, content and make Blazing Beaks as fun as possible.”

Update 14 (v0.5.87)


Hi,

The biggest highlight of this update is reworked characters system. All passive abilities for characters except Platypus were changed completely. Also from now on, all the characters have active abilities too which can be changed during gameplay and used depending on situation, playing style and etc. More information about each character is now represented in a separate window instead of small icons which were not very descriptive before.
There were some other changes in the game. You can find more details below.

New
  • Added game tutorial. It won’t be shown to those who already played the game and brought any artefacts to the Crow at least once.



  • Added active abilities: Propeller, Icicle, Teleport, Bubble, Iron Wings, Teddy, Egg Bomb and Nails. Abilities can be found during gameplay and picking it up replaces your current ability you have.

  • Added 18 hand-crafted levels.
  • Added two new starting weapons: Drizzler for Duck and Swift for Chicken.

  • Added new Compass item.

Changes
  • Reworked all the characters except Platypus:

    Duck
    Has Drizzle as a starting weapon.
    Not shooting for 1 second reloads weapon for next shot 3 times faster.
    Has 50% lower weapon range.

    Bluebird
    Has Pistol as a starting weapon.
    Any damage taken having 1 HP left, decreases max HP.
    By entering boss level, refills health converting every 5 coins to 1 HP.

    Chicken
    Has Swift as a starting weapon.
    Can kill marked enemies in one shot.
    Shoots innacurately while running.
    Has 80% higher weapon range.

    Parrot
    Has Teeny Tiny Laser Gun as a starting weapon.
    Dealing damage to enemies reduce their walking speed for 2 seconds.
    Has 40% lower cooldown time for active abilities.
    Has 70% lower coin drop possibility.

  • Due to character changes mentioned above, those items and artefacts were changed too:

    Power Punch - completely removed from the game.
    Oblivion Stone - now it takes away character’s active ability instead of taking away ability to slide.
    Venom - now it does not allow to pick up an ability instead of losing an ability.
    Shackles - now it doubles cooldown time for character's active ability instead of reducing the length of slide.

  • Dead enemies now become transparent if they are nearby acid pools.
  • Weapon stealing in the shop now is more clear and understandable. If you step on a tile to buy a weapon without having enough coins, “STEAL” title will appear instead of it's price.

Balance
  • Balanced Platypus a little bit.
  • Black Matter Gun will not be available in Swamp or Graveyard shops.

Bug fixes
  • Fixed a bug where on very rare occasions Player 1 was spawned outside of level map bounds in tournament mode.

Best regards,
Blazing Beaks Team
