What is the current state of the Early Access version?

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

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

“Using the Steam Community News and Discussions.

We have a list of features that we would like to add. At the very least we will determine in what order we will add these features.

We are also open to adding new features and ideas based on community input.”
