What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to use Early Access as an opportunity to involve the community in the creation of our game. All the core mechanics are in place, tested and working, but there is still some place for improvement and final polishing. Early Access will allow us to gather important feedback from the players and observe how they interact with the game’s environment. It is our responsibility but also our dream to provide the best player’s experience possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan the EA to last a few months, but that mostly depends on the feedback we will get. We feel like we are mostly ready, but we don't want to rush to release and certainly not at the price of hurting the game's quality.”

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

“We plan to release updates on monthly basis with additional content that include:
- narrative: 3 additional levels,
- characters: up to 4 new characters,
- environment: 3 new areas,
- mechanics: new weapon types and technologies,
- enemies: new alien enemies to bring the fighting experience to a whole new level,
- bugfixes.
The final version of the game will have all that, but we also want to leave some room for the inspiration that may come from our community.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In terms of content, there are currently:
- narrative: 4 levels of story progression,
- characters: 4 playable characters as your team expands,
- environment: 4 game areas,
- enemies: up to 7 different alien enemies,
As mentioned above, we plan to expand the gameplay with content updates on a monthly basis and polish the general feel of it, once we learn our players’ preferences.”

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

“That is still up for consideration. We have not made up our minds on that yet.”

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

“We’re looking forward to receiving feedback from players on different channels (Steam Discussions, Discord) to collect information on how we can improve the game together. We will implement all the necessary fixes and listen to players’ suggestions to shape the final product.”

About This Game

War looms between the Terrans and an invading synthetic race. A massive station appears high in orbit and first contact between them goes very wrong.

An elite strike team led by Angel, a highly trained special agent with advanced martial arts skills, is sent to neutralize the threat. But the mission goes awry and Angel awakens in the infirmary of the station's lab. With no memory of what happened, she must trust an unfamiliar face to guide her through the alien ship and find the rest of her team. She only knows this: they are the only hope of Terra.
