What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have been developing this game for some time already, and want to present it in a playable state to the community to get feedback and suggestions.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect that we will need a few months to polish it for the final release,”

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

“The full version will have more polished UI, graphics optimization, sound/music. It will also have more features such as playing with friends, achievements system, in-game code editor, built-in TypeScript and IntelliSense support, etc. Game balance will be fine tuned but mostly remain within the same API.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable and has all planned content: Tutorial, 3 basic arenas, 3 advanced arenas, Fame system and rewards, inventory and crafting. You can play versus different opponents, craft keys, unlock new arenas and progress through the current season.”

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

“No, the price will not change when the game leaves Early Access.”

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

“We are constantly in touch with the community using our Discord server and Steam forums. All feedback and suggestions are highly welcome.”

About Screeps

Screeps means "scripting creeps." You use real JavaScript to script behavior of your units, or creeps. The Screeps franchise is aimed at programming enthusiasts and consists of two games: World and Arena.

About This Game

Screeps: Arena is an online RTS PvP-only game. Your script fights other players' script autonomously in a match-based arena environment.

Features:

  • All aspects of an RTS game: gathering resources, base building, creating and upgrading units.
  • You don't control your units directly, you play by writing full-fledged JavaScript that runs on game servers.
  • Other languages are supported via WebAssembly: C/C++, Rust, TypeScript, Go, C#, F#, Kotlin, Swift, D, Pascal, Zig, the list is growing.
  • Your code is executed autonomously while fighting other players' code during series of short fast-paced 1x1 matchups.
  • The system will match equal opponents based on your arena rating that changes with every rating game.
  • You can find an equal opponent instantly 24/7 even if no other players are online, since their saved code is used instead.
  • Different "arenas" (multiplayer game modes) each with its own rules set and goals covering many aspects of a strategy game.
  • Only basic programming skills are required. However, if you are a pro developer, now is the chance to put your skills to the limit!
  • We will introduce new arenas every season so that you always have to write new code for different challenges.
  • Earn daily fame, gain resources and craft items to unlock more content during the season.
  • Play with friends and design your own challenges and arenas.
