What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Planetes started as a personal project, and has grown in to what it is now because of the community that has grown with it. We are still gaining information every day on what can make the game even better, and until we feel the game has reached it's full potential we cannot offer it as a fully released game. The game will continue to grow and change from the communities feedback throughout early access and will be offered at a lower price as long as it is in early access. - Thank you for understanding and being part of this game's growth.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Giving out dates is a risky thing to do and I would hate to break a promise to the community. However, I would be surprised if we remained in Early Access for more than a year or two. Remember Early Access is a period we would like to continually gather feedback from the players of our game so we can improve it even more. We will choose to end Early Access when we feel that the game has a reached a place that fit our original vision and also satisfies our playerbase.”

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

“One of the biggest features we would like to have in the final release is a procedurally generated universe with a very large number of star systems. This procedural generation system is not something we have begun developing yet, and will not for quite some time until we feel the core of the game has been solidified. This procedural content generation is something that we would hope to include in the final release of the game.

Other features would include more filled out technology trees, weapon variation and hand made planets and star systems.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Rough, very rough, expect bugs, expect incompatibilities. Expect servers to crash without saving.

This is why we feel that we cannot charge more for the game. And we feel that it is important to reward the palyers who are willing to work with us through the hard times of the game with a much lower sale price.”

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

“Yes, the price will go up as more features are added and the game becomes more polished.”

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

“Every step of the way. So far the playtesting feedback we have gotten from our small but growing community has been invaluable. We hope to continue this developer to player relationship that allows us to improve the game at a rapid pace.”
