What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“There are still a few features that needs to be created and polished some of these are:
Adaptive AI
Technology Tree
Better upgrade system
The user interface still needs lots of improvements to make it more usable


The reason I decided to put this game on early access now is that i want your feedback on how things should be, I want you to help me make decisions about the feature”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“For as long as it takes, probably no more then a year”

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

“In the full version I imagine there will be a better UI more polished gameplay and a lot more features as mentioned in "Why Early Access". There will be better assets.

I have plans for proper support of the workshop to allow users to add new buildings and tools.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of early access is that we got still a lot of work before its done, but here is some of the stuff that is already in the game

* A basic power usage system, but will be more advanced as the AI gets developed.
* Money is implemented and working as planned.
* A building system, that is very interactive and you will understand fast what is the deal.
* A basic upgrade system for the buildings.
* Multiple factories is implemented but requires some more work.
* The ui is usable but still needs more work.

Our priories are
* Getting mod support to work flawlessly
* Adaptive AI
* Optimizing and polishing of the ui and assets

Also a lot of the features currently in the game will change as development progresses, since we will care about suggestions about the game things will change if we get good suggestions on what could change.”

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

“The price will remain the same”

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

“The community will be an important part of the development process, I will take suggestions into consideration and if I and the rest of the community likes it the suggestion will be implemented.”

Development update

Development Update

Updates has run a bit dry the last weeks, this is not because I stopped working. Rather the opposite, I have been doing a huge rewrite of the core making the code more stable and usable.

The new version is still not ready, and will be about a week before it is ready.

I am working on this project alone and having to do the art and code takes alot of time.
