What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We feel that given this game's unique gameplay experience that AEU would benefit greatly from involving community feedback into the design process offered by entering early access. This would give fans a chance to further shape the game that they want to play as well as allow a chance for word of mouth to spread.

To put it simply, we do not know of any other game quite like this one and believe that it is worth exploring in more depth together with the support of the community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate roughly three to four months of early access should be enough to satisfy the challenges of AEU's more intricate design process, although community feedback may alter that decision.”

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

“Mostly likely to be addressed during the early access period are quality of life improvements, a better way to introduce the game's mechanics to new players, a more robust multiplayer experience with more options, and various gameplay tweaks and balances according to community feedback combined with our own judgment.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“AEU is currently functional. A full game can be played from start to finish with the initially planned game mechanics more or less all accounted for. Multiplayer of up to 16 players is also functional but is in need of refinement to make for a more enjoyable experience. The graphical assets are mostly complete and music is already in place.”

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

“We do not currently have plans to change the price when we leave launch. It is possible that community driven feature requests may drive costs up but there are no plans to do so at the moment.”

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

“The game's community hub will function as one avenue towards involving the community and the game's official Discord server will function as the other. Events will be populated across both so community members will stay informed of the current direction of things. Both places will allow community members to voice their own opinions about the direction of AEU.”
