What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are a very small team.
Since HELLSEED is the first game we develop using S2ENGINE HD, our proprietary engine,
we want to make users giving us their feedback before the releasing of the final product.
In this way we will be able to correct, expand (expecially with the game ending), and finally offer a game as the result of all gamers suggestions and will.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Roughly about 5-6 months after releasing of the Early Access.
We plan to release the Early Access roughly in October 2020.
We believe 5-6 months is the time required to make the ending, the refinements and improvements we planned to do.”

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

“It will have:
  • Game story ending,
  • Subtitles localization,
  • Better graphics refinements,
  • Engine optimizations and improvements,
  • Additional puzzles,
  • Additional random events,
  • A lot of bugfixes.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently the game is in a very early stage, since we plans to release the Early Access roughly in October 2020 and then keep the Early Access for about 5-6 months in order to produce the game ending and apply as many as refinements and improvements suggested by community:
  • we have completed the most of the plot
  • we have roughly 40% of the required elements for the gameplay (expecially puzzles)
  • we have roughly completed 70% of the gameplay code
  • we have roughly completed 50% of the graphics

When it'll come out, the Early Access will have all the features listed into the About section but WITHOUT the final part of the game (the ending).
The ending will be omitted from early access because we want players to have an additional reason to play the game when it will be out from the early access stage.
The Early Access period will be used for producing the ending of the game and improving existing elements (expecially graphical) or adding new elements, expecially if requested by community, but first of all it will be used for testing and debugging.”

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

“The final price could eventually increase as a result of expansions and improvements of the game.”

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

“By submitting questions to the users and listening their suggestions on the Steam discussion board in order to apply improvements as fast as possible.”
