What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe every game is an experience. Most of the experience is defined by the player while play, that means, we as game designers and developers can show some patterns but the player that completes them. So we aim to listen the community as close as possible to orient our development and mindset.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We can't accurately predict how long Early Access will take. Our vision is to release when the game has good results with the feeling of horror and immersion of the players. If everything works as planned, we expect the Early Access to finish around the early of 2020, but it can be delayed.”

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

“Before we are ready to launch the game, we want to make the survival horror experience a little more "directed", we want the players to have a true co-op experience, helping each other to figure out in this frightening place tools necessary to survive. Our focus is to create a double sided experience where each player plays a different game to reach the same goal. We aim to build more environmental hazardous and create horror through mechanics instead of only rely on aesthetics.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“This Side currently is focused on the core gameplay, but we still have a few polishes to make on the core loop. We did the basic dressing of the stage, but the environment still needs a few things to be fully dressed as we are imagining in order to improve the replayability. We'll try not to release any game-breaking bugs, but the players can expect to find a few bugs while new features are being implemented. See the "About This Game" section for more information about what features are implemented so far.”

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

“No, we don't plan any change on the price.”

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

“The feedback from the community is important to improve the overall experience. We plan to analyze game plays, provide forms to collect data from the community and also receive feedback from bugs and bad experience the players faces while trying to play our game. You can talk to us using the Steam Community Hub or our This Side Website. The forms will be found on community hub, our site and inside the game. If you want to follow our progress, our social media will have everything you want to know.

About This Game

This Side is a co-op roguelike survival horror game.

Be Aware

The game is currently on Early Access version so please be patient and if you find someting that you think we could improve or need to be fixed don't be shy and lets us know here on Steam or even on our social media!

The History

At this current version This Side it's about two friends that need help each other to find a way out of a dangerous place. In the future we aim to increase the amount of information about the place and tells to the players whats happens there.

Key Features

Co-Op


We aim for This Side to be a true co-operative experience where both players need to help each other to finish the game.
The game has two play sides Inside and Outside the mines.

Inside the Mines
Inside the mine the player faces the hazardous environment of a abandoned mine.
For now we get the cave collapsing areas, so the player need to keep moving while the caves collapses over his head.
Our goal with the final experience its to make its struggling and visceral like a real survival experience inside a confusing and dangerous place.

Outside the Mines
Outside the player needs to find its way to help his friend by controlling the environment inside the mines while it faces his own problems.
At the current version the player need to find some electric components and use them to open some water control gates so he can release his friend.
Our goal with the final experience its to make frightening by the need for help while one player faces the struggle inside the mines he put his pain on his friend shoulders.

Survival
Both player in the future will have survival mechanics based on his own environment the idea behind that its not to flood the player by resources administration bur make the sense of surviving more believable. At the same time we aim to make the survival experience more co-operative.

Roguelike

Every aspect in the game is being designed to be roguelike. We aim that all play through to be a new and different experience. Every time we start to talk about a new mechanic e talk about how it can be done procedurally.

In this version we created a fully procedural cave that fits most of our game design needs so every time you play you will find a new cave. The electrical components and the Water control gates are procedural too.

Single Player

In this version the player plays with both sides but we aim to make more like a "single player" feeling of our multiplayer core.
In the future the player will chose which side he want to play and will help or be helped by an AI. We're no aimomg for a training or tutorial mode it will be more like a Hardcore gameplay mode.
