Estranged: Act I - Alan Edwardes
We are excited to announce that Estranged: Act II is now available to download on Steam Early Access!

During the Early Access period we'll be using the Act II forums to talk to the community about the direction of the game, features you'd like to see and any bug reports: http://steamcommunity.com/app/582890/discussions/

Please let us know what you think! We'll be continuing development of Estranged: Act II during the Early Access period with regular updates adding more content, and improving existing content.

Thank you for being part of the development so far, and we hope you'll continue to work with us to make the finished version a fun, immersive experience.

We are excited to announce that Estranged: Act II will be on Steam! We will be releasing Estranged: Act II into Early Access - for free!

Estranged: Act I was released in incremental “alphas” while it was being developed. This allowed us to regularly provide players with new content, and for players to continuously give feedback on the development process.

Early Access vastly simplifies the incremental update process, as it is a lot easier for us to release often. We no longer need to prepare and advertise large releases ahead of time, the process of pushing a new build to Steam takes a matter of minutes.

Once Early Access has finished, we plan to charge a nominal amount for the game – but this will be when we are satisfied it is complete. Estranged is (and has always been) a spare time project for everyone involved, alongside full-time work and education. We would love to get paid for what we do, but only if we make a fun game.

Anyone that downloads the game during the free Early Access period will keep the game in their library when it releases fully, paid-for or otherwise. If you are a part of the development process, you deserve to keep the game forever.

We will be using the Act II Steam forums as our primary means of communication, with transparent release notes and a public bug tracker to streamline the development process.

We will be putting the Early Access build live over the next few weeks. Thank you for being part of the Estranged project, we hope you’ll continue this journey with us!

Hi all,

We will be releasing the first alpha of Estranged: Act II in September!

If you’d like to get a notification when it’s available, enter your email address here.

We will also announce instructions showing how to play on Twitter, Facebook, ModDB and here on the Steam news pages.

The first alpha will include the first few unfinished levels of Act II, so we can get feedback on what’s in there so far, and inform the development of the rest of the game.

We hope you will enjoy playing and testing!

Alan
