What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I would like to involve the community with the development of Cryptrunner as early as possible so that they can have a greater impact on its final release. The randomized elements of Cryptrunner also make the game difficult to test/balance, thus feedback from the community will ultimately create a better overall experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It is difficult to estimate exactly how long it will take to leave Early Access, but my goal is to have the game fully released by 2020.”

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

“In addition to being a more polished experience, I plan to expand the game with plenty of new content throughout Early Access.

You can expect the following to be added (and more):

  • More areas/environments
  • More enemies
  • More weapons
  • More upgrades

I also expect to add features/content based on feedback gained from the community through the game's Early Access life-cycle.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version has all of the game's core systems in place and is completely playable from beginning to end, although the final version will take longer to beat. The three areas that you can play through in the game contain 10+ enemies and a sizeable amount of weapons/upgrades. I am continuously expanding the game and each update in Early Access will add to the game's already solid foundation.”

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

“The price will remain the same throughout Early Access and will increase for the full release.”

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

“I will be involved with the Community Hub here on Steam as well as the game's official Discord and Twitter. As of now, I feel that I have built a solid base that can be expanded upon with feedback from the players.”
