What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“It would not be possible to push Cry of Athena to its full potential without the players' input and support. Having strong communication with the players will help the game reach its full potential and steer the game in the direction of being as fun and enjoyable as possible.

We are passionate developers who want to create a genuinely good game that players can be proud to have in their libraries. We want to take a grassroots approach to development via Early Access and involve the community in providing much needed feedback to point the game exactly where it needs to go.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate that Cry of Athena will be in Early Access for at least two years.”

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

“We are aiming to put in more factions, units, levels, weapons, and improve upon the VR and general game mechanics to the best of our ability before considering full release. Other game modes other than sandbox mode are of interest to us. We are also strongly considering adding official mod support to allow for community made content.

We are interested in creating a fully functional level creation system with building/fortification spawning, land deformation and scripting. Along with this, we'll want to make these community made levels shareable.

Since the story of Cry of Athena encompasses the time period between ancient Greece and modern day as well as including other myths, fiction, and folklore of other cultures, there are many possible additions and this means the game has basically an endless potential for more content.

We will consider the game to be fully released once it feels well rounded and is of high quality, and this will be massively influenced by the players' thoughts and feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Cry of Athena as it is will come with the main mode: a sandbox battle simulator mode where you can spawn in allies and enemies to fight in about 5 maps, each featuring destructible environments. Additionally, there are a number of pre-made scenarios and game modes for more structured gameplay. There are dozens of different weapons to choose from and over 20 different AI to experiment with. You can also play as a towering god and use divine powers like raining meteors and lightning upon the battlefield.”

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

“The game will be priced about half as much as it would compared to full release when it is first released in Early Access and will increment slowly as more content is implemented and eventually raise to full price by full release.”

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

“Player feedback is critical to achieving the vision for a finalized version of the game. We have an official Discord channel where you can support the game via feedback and suggestions. We love getting the community involved on the creative process so good suggestions have a strong likelihood of being implemented. The game cannot reach its full potential without the community.”
