What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are a small independent game developer and without support from those who wish to see Mahou Arms reach completion we are less likely to succeed. By launching on Early Access, we hope players will try our game and support its development by sharing it with others and providing feedback. More support means more content faster.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We’ve been working on Mahou Arms for around four years now (since 2018) and we expect it will take at least another two years (2024) before we have a game that we’re satisfied with.”

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

“We have plans to add more missions and more playable characters in the short term, as well as slower-paced GARDA base sections dedicated to getting to know the characters and world of Mahou Arms.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Right now there are three main story missions and two simple side missions. Amelia and Susan are the first two playable character in the game and their movesets are mostly complete (Susan is missing her un-transformed moveset). It should be noted that all of the content in Mahou Arms is custom. This includes the models, animations, music, sound effects, etc.”

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

“Yes. During early access the Mahou Arms will be around 25% cheaper.”

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

“We will monitor the Steam forums for feedback and bug reports, but we encourage players to join our Discord channel where we can communicate with them more directly:
