What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We would like the public to help shape the future of Insect Simulator to create the most enjoyable, and personal game play experience as possible”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“2-12 months”

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

“We have plans to add more insects, as well as rodents, reptiles and e.t.c. We are also working on a weather system. We are hoping to create an immersive simulation game based on the lives on insects and small animals. Your feedback from our early access release will help to shape the future of Insect Simulator. We have yet to decide whether to implement a story mode. Online multiplayer is also being considered.

All aspects of the game are currently subject to change.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In it's current state there are two available insects to play. There is also currently no mating system in the game, and AI interaction is limited at this time. There is currently an XP system in place as well as compass and landmarks which may contribute to a future story mode (undecided)

Every aspect of the game is subject to change, the game is currently in a pre-alpha state. You can expect everything from character movement to map layout and environment to change and improve.”

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

“We do not plan to adjust the price”

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

“We are seeking feedback and suggestions from players to implement into future development.

You can provide feedback via direct message to our Facebook page 'Insect Simulator', reviewing the app, or emailing sarah_willsteed@msn.com”
