What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The MCAS simulation is an interactive news report with educational content that will give our users more insights on how this MCAS works. Since this simulation consist of eight different parts, it is going to be step by step evolution. There are definitely great ideas to be generated and added as we evolve and there's no better source than our community for this to happen. Early Access is therefore a great opportunity to work closely with our community in order to deliver a high quality final product.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are sure to have this game in Early Access till end of February 2020. However, it may vary slightly depending on the feedback we get from our community.”

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

“The whole simulation consists of eight parts.

Early Access Version: We will start our Early Access with the first three parts ready to play and we will be adding other parts week by week till we reach the last part which is part eight. Expect unforeseen bugs and other features such as sound and image may require additional polishing.

Final Version: this version will be complete ( part one to eight) with all the features fully available i.e better navigation, images and sounds, and less bugs.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of the Early Acces version has parts one to three ready to play. Part one is more of an introduction to what the whole simulation is about, but from two onwards, it becomes playable and interactive. Week by week, other parts of the simulation will also be added and we will use community feedback to improve on them. You can get more details of the various parts is the "About the game" description.”

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

“During the entire Early Access, the price of the game will remain the same.

At the release of the full version, the price will reflect all other added features”

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

“We're currently active on Facebook and Twitter. We will also be active on steam once we are on Early Access.
We're happy to share the evolution of this simulation with players and feedback is much appreciated.”

About This Game

MCAS is an interactive news report in the form of a simulation that will give you a better understanding of how the MCAS works and how it led to Boeing 737 MAX crashes of Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 that you probably heard or read in the news.

This simulation is going to consist of 8 parts each part lasting about five to eight minutes. It is going to be structured in way that you can easily skip a part and come back to it later.

Part 1 takes you to a virtual tour of the Boeing Renton Factory where the Boeing 737 MAX airliners are built.
Part 2 takes you to a virtual engine test room and explains how modern aircraft engines work.
Part 3 takes you to a virtual Wind Tunnel room and explains the role of the winglets on the aircraft.
Part 4 will show you how the engines are attached to the airframe and how they modified the flight characteristics of the airplane.
Part 5 will introduce the MCAS system in more details and explain how it was supposed to make the plane easier to fly.
Part 6 and Part 7 will attempt to recreate flights Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302.
Part 8 will take us back to the drawing board where we will study different proposals on how to improve the MCAS.
