What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As a solo developer my playtesting abilities are somewhat limited, Early Access gives great opportunity to improve this game by fixing as many bugs as possible, by optimizing performance for widest spectrum of hardware, by tuning game ballance and focusing most promising features. Feedback is crucial when all artistic and technical choices are done by one person.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It will take about 3 to 8 month from Early Access release (March 1st, 2019) to implement planned features (see "ABOUT THIS GAME" section), it depends on amount of bugs and performance issues that may crop up after release. Potential features may take as much or even longer. I will keep the Community informed about important news on Steam and on the Social media sites.”

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

“In the description of the game ("ABOUT THIS GAME") you can see what available now, will be after official release and can be developed potentially.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Essentially game is playable from start to finish. All of the current features are developed, with no apparent performance issues (if hardware meets requirements) and bugs. However I've tested game on limited amount of computers, so problems can be expected. Also things like game feel, ballance and pacing definitely need more refinement.”

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

“Yes. Early Access supporters will receive a lower price.”

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

“Community will play big part the development, based on the feedback overall difficulty and ballance may change, some features may be added or removed.
Steam forums can be used to express issues, ideas, feedback in general and report bugs.
Official web site and Discord server will be potentially created.”
