What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The base game is ready to play, but there are several directions the rest of the development could go. I need the community feedback to help determine where the effort should be focused. You can help me determine what is fun, so those kinds of interactions can be more prevalent. Your feedback on the game will make finding that fun part of the game all the easier. I look forward to any feedback you care to give!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This game will be in early access for 3 to 9 months.”

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

  • Items will change throughout early access development
  • Level and enemy designs will change throughout early access development
  • Multiplayer co-op will be added during early access development
  • A home island that is customizable by the player will be built during early access
  • Community feedback will be incorporated into the design and prioritization

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The first 20 levels, with 2 bosses are ready to play.”

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

“I plan to keep the game free, but circumstances may change.”

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

“I will take feedback in the steam forums and reviews. Later in the early access process I'll open up an item design tool, and point of interest design tool so community members can contribute more directly to the game.”

First Update!

I've listened to the feedback so far and this update should address most of the small concerns.
  • Infinite Wave Mode - You can now take on infinite waves of enemies, and see how you place against others with a Steam leaderboard.

  • UI Redo - The wheel and switches are being removed, as many people had trouble using them. A window based UI will be replacing them. Also the inventory is accessible from anywhere, instead of just on the ship. The settings and general buttons have been combined into a single UI.
  • Compass - There is a consistent facing compass by your feet when you open the menu. It will also have small comets to direct you to where the goals are, for when you can't see the larger comets in the sky.
  • Touchpad based movement - one controller will move you based on the touchpad or joystick position, you will still need to teleport between islands. To enable this movement style toggle it on in the settings. This movement style is not advised for those who get motion sick easily.
  • Intro - The tutorial is now a story intro as well. This will get work over time as the story mode gets more flushed out.
  • Buddy - The green golem that has been following you around now talks. I know many of you could find this annoying, so you can also mute him in the settings.
  • Staffs - The charged up particles now appear in a straight line, allowing for better aim of the fireball. Also two new specials: Frost Nova damages all nearby enemies, Flamethrower gives a large direction area of damage.

About This Game

Comets Wake[\b] is a first-person action game with procedurally generated worlds and lots of loot. A formerly peaceful realm has now been turned violent by the arrival of the mysterious Red Comet. It is up to you to destroy the minions of the Red Comet and save the remaining peaceful inhabitants. But you won’t have to do it alone, one of the young golems has escaped and is helping you find your way and rescue his buddies.

The Red Comet has given its minions unnatural powers, so be careful! Enemies will try to punch you, make the ground beneath you explode, shoot lasers at you and more.

Use your weapons and powers to fight back, like with a staff that shoots fireballs.

The expansive worlds of floating islands have many different biomes and points of interest to explore. Warm up and heal next to fires, or relax next to a waterfall.

Generate custom worlds and share the seeds with friends. Choose the size of the world, the difficulty, the level type, and more.

You’ll have to find your arsenal from across the realm. Stock up on a variety of different guns, bows, swords, maces, hammers, axes, shields, throwing knives, and mage staffs. Cast spells and use the weapons’ special abilities to make your sword giant, blow up a wave of enemies with a fireball, or engage the bow's rapid fire.

Discover weapons in chests all over the realm, or buy them at purchase stations. There are so many options to choose from, so find what works best for you!

Fight your way to the Red Comet and defeat it once and for all!
