What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Since the game is still under development, we count on your feedback to help us improve and complete it!
The Rescue of Mermaids has been in development since February 2017, with support from indie community, and thanks to that, the game now includes a diversity of gameplay elements, items and characters.
Trough a constant intake of feedback, it will be possible to improve the game tenfold, making sure it is as good as it can possibly be, and I believe that Early Access is the best way to achieve that.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately 8 months.”

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

“The full version is planned to feature monster girls with their own CG and collectable card (with happy animations), more boss battles and endings.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Current version of the game includes all basic gameplay elements: movement trough keyboard (WASD); pick up/holding items; basic attack; drill skill; anemone passage; gate activation; bomberman-like battle system; buying items; talking/doing things to NPCs; 7 monster girls; pregnancy system; 1 boss battle;”

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

“As we move towards the official release, the price will go up as new elements, content and functionalities are added.”

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

“We intend on running periodic polls trough the community so they can help improve the game, while also posting a summary of all previous feedback-based updates previously made.
You can contact us through Steam discussion board at our game community”

Now he needs to figure out how to rescue them and ensure peace and security for his lineage.
