What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We've built what we feel is a strong core for The Anacrusis. The first three episodes, which we're launching with in January, represent our vision for the game. But we also know that our best plans will change the moment players start playing the game. That's why we want to get the game out now, so we can start collecting feedback from the community and use that to shape the future of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're targeting between 9-12 months of Early Access, with regular updates in 2022 culminating in a Q4 2022 launch.”

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

“The first three episodes are complete representations of our vision for The Anacrusis. The full version of the game will include more episodes, game types, etc.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The first three episodes are feature complete, the game is playable, and works with Steam players as well as uses cross-play to allow players to connect with players on the other supported platforms. We'll continue to polish components of the game, like the UI, the Director 2.0, and weekly challenges.”

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

“At this time, we do not plan to adjust the price after leaving Early Access.”

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

“We're actively participating with the community on our Discord and have set up structures for the players to offer suggestions and regular feedback on new modes, episodes, and other content we produce.”

Never Fight the Same Battle Twice


In The Anacrusis, the AI Driver controls every aspect of the game. It spawns every enemy, directs each boss, and places every weapon, gadget, and health kit. No matter your skill level, you'll find the perfect level of challenge. More than that, the AI Driver creates the kinds of video game moments that you can’t wait to tell your friends about.

Fight Aliens Using Fantastical Weapons


Battle the alien menace using an astounding arsenal of classic sci-fi weapons. Buy yourself some time with a stasis grenade, toss a shield grenade to provide instant cover while you pop off a heal, and bring your friends back to life using the Respawner. Or throw caution to the wind and burn friend and foe alike with the laser rifle.

Earn New Perks and Change the Way You Play


Matter compilers spread throughout the game give you access to dozens of perks that will change the way you play. Stack all of your upgrades to power up the last-resort pistol or boost your defense by supercharging your shield pulse. Unlock new perks as you play, and share your unlocks with everyone on your team!

Survive the Alien Infestation!


In the distant future, mighty corporations have carried humanity to the fringes of the galaxy. After expanding unfettered across tens of thousands of systems--all devoid of intelligent life--humanity has grown complacent, until disaster strikes. Work together and survive the alien hordes!

A Fight For Survival Is Just the Beginning


The first season of The Anacrusis tells the story of four unlikely survivors--Nessa, Guion, Liu, and Lance--who are unwilling combatants in the battle to defend humanity from the alien menace. Play more and unlock more of the unfolding mystery of the alien attack.
