What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“In one word: COVID-19. The generalised lockdown considerably slowed the final stages of development of SYF. Rather than delay the launch or ship an incomplete game, we opted to use Early Access to get it in players’ hands while still being transparent about its current state of production.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The plan is to have Sacrifice Your Friends in Early Access until its full release in Autumn 2020. This means a period of about 4-5 months in Early Access, beginning June 18th 2020.”

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

“At first, the Early Access will include 2 lovecraftian environnements, each with 4 multiplayer arenas and a Story Tour (co-op campaign). 3 cult avatars will be available at this point. During Early Access, 2 more environnements will be added with 2 extra unlockable cult avatars. Online multiplayer will also be greatly improved and debugged during this period.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Most of the game is complete and ready; the app is stable and the couch play competitive multiplayer is fully operational. Online multiplayer work, but there is still a couple months worth of debugging and polishing before the full release. One of the two missing story tours is almost ready. All 16 arenas are completed.”

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

“Sacrifice Your Friends will be 20% off from its base price for the entire duration of the Early Access.”

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

“We are always available for a chat on Discord or via Steam discussions. Close contact with players is one of the privileges of independent game development, and we are always glad to have a talk. Invite us for a game or even a stream, we’ll do our best to be there!”
