What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I'd like to give you a chance to play it before it's done, so I can make better design decisions based on your feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“A year or less, if things go according to plan.”

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

“The full version will have two more episodes, more special abilities, more ship components/weapons/etc, more gameplay features, better graphics, better music, Linux and OS X support, steam achievements, and perhaps gamepad support and a local multiplayer battle mode.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early access version contains the 1st of three episodes, 18 special abilities that can be unlocked throughout a game, 75 different kinds of components to put on your ships, the Roguelike mode, and RPG mode with two difficulties.”

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

“Prices will be lower (except perhaps for sales) during Early Access, given that buying a game before it is complete is a risk for the user and I believe that prices should reflect that.”

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

“I would like to know what you do and don't like about the game, what you think would be good in the game, and use that feedback to make the game better.”

Improved explosion graphics, better material pickup graphics

This update was pushed up last night, the changes are:

Juicier explosion & destruction graphics



Improved crafting material pickup graphics



Shields nurfed

Shields have also being nurfed a bit, so it'll be easier for you to take down enemies with shields, but a little harder to stay protected with shields. This should balance the late-game gameplay a little better.

Miscellaneous

Finally to pick up materials in craft mode the button has been changed to right mouse the same as melting.
