What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Only 2 people work on the game, two brothers.
Our names are Anton and Maxim - Hello everyone!

"Cruel world" for us is not just a game. This is what we live 24 hours a day. We have many ideas, many plans for this project.
Yes, for now this is just a sketch. Clumsy as a child. But we love him, and we want the best for him.

But our resources are limited. Therefore, we chose early access. This will allow us to work on the game with the highest quality and attention that we are capable of.
We hope to find players who enjoy our vision of the "survival game" who will help us with feedback and tips.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It is difficult to give an exact answer.
Most likely, most game mechanics will be ready by the end of 2020.
But the work on improving them, balancing and expanding the content can continue until the end of 2021, and maybe longer.
It all depends on how well we manage to implement our plan, and of course on the response of the players.”

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

“The main difference is the liveliness of the game world.
Its quality, quantity of details. The quality of the simulation of enemies and their interaction with each other.

We want to make a living self-contained world in which the player will not be bored. And in which there will always be something to do, from building its own base, to establishing its own order in the wasteland.

And if everything works out, then there will be a cooperative mode for 4 players.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is at a very early stage of development (version 0.01).
But vital systems for this project have already been made. Including the "system for loading objects", which is responsible for the work of a fairly large world. And the "system of enemy bases", which will be finalized throughout the entire period of early access.

Most importantly, the project lacks a “construction system” and a “weapon wear system” that we are currently working on and which will be added in the first place.

Right now the most interesting phase of game development is coming. Almost the entire skeleton is already ready, and any improvement or improvement adds weight to the project, and makes it noticeably better.”

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

“I think the price will not change much. This will depend on the quality of the game and its development.
It is very important for us to make the project the way we see it. And the price is already secondary ...”

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

“First of all, through the Steam community.
Secondly, we launch the Discord server dedicated to the game. In which the latest news will be published and discussions of ideas and updates will be held.
And also it is very important for us to receive information about the balance, and about the feelings of the players from the game. This will allow us to avoid many mistakes, we will be able to move faster to the intended goal.”
