What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are looking to test how the game performs on different platforms and machines, as well as to tune the gameplay and challenge to maximize enjoyment. Our goal is a complete game with many features, with compatibility and high performance on mid-range machines and up. The gameplay will mature with user testing, and the feature set will be rounded out.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We will release the game once the gameplay, performance and features meet our standards. It will be in Early Access for at least three months.”

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

“We plan to have a novel and challenging economic simulation where players will have to weather recessions and deal with poverty and other issues facing real cities. We also plan to implement connections to other cities, mass transit, airports, freight, rail, and seaports.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is already fully playable with road building, city growth, city services, and budgeting. This includes transitions from night to day, upgrading roads and buildings, and traffic management.”

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

“We begin with a price that encourages adoption and testing. As the game matures and becomes popular, and as the feature set grows, we will have price increases.”

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

“We will encourage players to report bugs and issues as well as provide feedback on the gameplay and enjoyment. In the early access period we expect many suggestions, and we will prioritize the most requested features.”
