What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“While I have been working on this game over a year now, I've come to the point where I would like to receive community feedback on various features and requests that would satisfy most of the customers who play this game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will leave early access once multiplayer is complete which will be either late 2020 or early 2021. The scope of multiplayer will include Co-op PVE and PVP against friends.”

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

“The full version of the game will have both singleplayer and multiplayer features included and not limited to sandbox, PvP, PvE, and a singleplayer exploration mode where players can explore different planets to improve their craft.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently only sandbox is available with AI ships to fight against and basic planetary exploration.
The Early Access version will launch with a single player PVE defense and a tutorial available. Additional information can be found in the "About This Game" section and community hub for progress updates.”

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

“The pricing will remain the same for most of the milestones, and will only increase slightly once a major version of the game is released. The price will not rise after leaving early access.”

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

“Once I get the workshop up and running, users will be able to upload their own crafts for others to use and might even become featured crafts in the vanilla game. Players are also free to comment and post their ideas at the community hub as I will be active there.”
