What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“There are three main reasons for Scorchlands to go early access: content, feedback and polish.
While the game is currently in a good state content—wise, we still wish to expand it by adding things that will make the game worth returning to, repeatedly.
It's also important to get to know the opinion about what the game feels like from the larger audience. That type of feedback is priceless and implementing the players clues will make our game even better.
We also want to improve the already existing mechanics and make them as intuitive as possible, especially at the later stages of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're planning to spend one and a half year in early access.”

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

“"Our main focus during the early access is to add even more content to the game. This includes the basics like biomes and progression tiers, but we also plan to introduce extra depth to the game by adding completely new features.
We'll also add quality—of—life improvements that will assist players both in early— and late game.
Another important thing is of course to finalize the story of the game and add more things to do for players to do after its completion."”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We've got 4 tiers of progression, each coming with a biome, multiple technologies, a combat unit, and a bunch of resources to produce.
In total we're at 4 biomes, 20+ buildings, 50+ technologies, 30+ resources and 4 combat units.
There is also a lighthearted story that accompanies the player throughout the game, but keep in mind that it's not finalized as of now.”

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

“There is a possibility that the price of the game will increase after leaving early access as we ship new content and features.”

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

“Getting to know what the players think about the game is extremely important to us. We're planning to set up a direct way of communication through Community Hub on Steam. We'll be also lurking and listening to what people have to say on other social media and keeping people updated with every content update we introduce.”

About This Game

Lead a civilization of bird folk on their planetary colonization quest. You will start with just one tiny settlement and expand it into a vast network of connected colonies. Every strip of land gives you an opportunity to develop your colony in multiple ways.

It’s all about creativity, clever positioning, and making your colonies grow!


Explore an unwelcoming, alien world and shape it through arcane terraformation. Change a volcanic wasteland into a green meadow or a desert to access different resource veins. Then mine and use these resources to expand your range of facilities and units.

As your research continues, you will gain access to new biomes that come with exclusive perks.


Place buildings so they boost each other and gain bonuses from nearby terrain. Unlock new biomes and dozens of technologies that will support your colony’s growth.

Have fun with the emergent gameplay where you encounter situations and challenges stemming from the open nature of the game.


Play with giant lasers to create a logistics network that transports resources between your colonies. Since the beams go in a straight line, you will have to change their direction using mirrors to avoid obstacles and reach the settlements far away.


There’s no pressure, no time limit, no enemy nipping at your heels. The game instantly reacts to your decisions. The pacing depends on you and you alone. Nothing will slow down your gameplay!


  • Experience a unique mix between a city builder and a factory game.
  • Terraform the world around you and exploit the biomes you create.
  • Design your own creative solutions and find yourself pausing to admire your own work.
  • Never wait for anything! Play as fast or slow as you want.
  • 4 biomes, 20+ buildings, 30+ resources, 50+ technologies - and more to come!
