What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Releasing in early access allows us to start getting feedback on gameplay now in a way that we would never be able to if we were only doing our own play testing. This way we can continue to improve the game and mechanics as we expand upon the experience. We want to allow as many people as possible in on that process so we can collect as much feedback as possible. That way we can develop the best experience possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Around 8 -12 months. We have plans for more game modes, expanded narratives / story mode, and even multiplayer so you can defend the homestead with friends.”

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

“Improved mechanics, more game modes, expanded narrative/story mode, more weapons and barricade types, and multiplayer are some of the main things to expect to be added as the game reaches a more finalized state.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“There is currently one game mode, where you can use a virtual nail gun to barricade yourself in a cabin nestled in the woods, and fight off strange creatures from the night. It looks beautiful, contains some excellent sound design, plays well, and most importantly, it’s fun. You’ll find yourself trying desperately to put up a few more boards with your nail gun, when you can hear the breathing from a monster bearing down on you, then you find yourself fumbling for your gun which can cause some genuine anxiety, and it’s a great time. That being said, there still may be bugs, but the core is there and it’s only going to get better.”

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

“Knowing full well that in it’s current state there’s not nearly as much content as the full release will contain, the game will be discounted for Early Access. We want as many people to play and give feed back now as possible, and we don’t want anyone to feel like they paid too much for what they’re getting. We’re only charging for what we think the game is worth in it’s current form, and we want anyone who gets in now to get a steep discount.”

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

“We want to hear from you! Tell us your stories, let us know what was great, what wasn't working, and what you want to see in the future. That kind of feedback is something we take very seriously and love to get, so we encourage comments and communication with us about your gameplay experience.

We have a road map of where we want to take The Homestead Invasion, but, that is always subject to change based on your experiences.


“We will be leveraging the game's Steam Community to interface and collect feedback from our customers. We are primarily interested in getting as much community feedback as possible so we can make the game even better.””

About This Game

Intro
A cabin tucked away in the woods, a place of peace and self-reflection. The type of place to remove your mind from the bustle of city life in the pursuit of solitude. Solitude, however, can be elusive, and strange adventures can arise anywhere at anytime.

Did they come from a distant world in outer space or from deep within the Earth’s crust? Perhaps they were formed by the very fibers of man’s worst intentions, a cosmic comeuppance for lives misspent. Whatever their origin, these are the facts; they don’t rest, they can’t be reasoned with, and their intent is singular; to extinguish mankind wherever they step foot.

Shore up your home, take up arms, and hope the night ends with this terrible enemy returning from whence they came.


Gameplay
Defend your home against an onslaught of monstrous invaders using whatever you can to keep them at bay. Use your nail gun to board up the doors and build your defenses, but even that won’t stop them for long. They’ll tear through your doors and barricades, so put your guns on your belt and prepare to fight them tooth and nail.

Features
  • Unique nail gun mechanic for building up your barricades to slow down monsters
  • Relentless AI that will stop at nothing in their pursuit to track you down and kill you.
  • Two weapons for blasting the monsters back into oblivion.
  • Beautiful and horrifying sound design that builds a serious sense of peril.
  • A beautifully stylized world

Future
  • Additional game modes, meaning new goals in new places, with new tools to get the job done.
  • Story mode.
  • Improved mechanics. We've got things in a good place for an early access release but we still have time to spend time ironing out mechanics, for all aspects of game play.
  • More dynamic gameplay. From setting traps to sneaking, future game modes will offer a more diverse gameplay.
