What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We ask ourselves, "Can we bring back those old memories of casually enjoying an arcade game?”. We’re doing our best to help players feel nostalgic, while also being able to experience something new with an added element of VR environment. However, to take it even further, we need more detailed and diverse feedback. We are eager to listen to our community throughout the whole duration of the Early Access to create an even better gaming experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Space Block Buster is a simple game that derives from one ultimate goal of breaking blocks. However, it also aims to deliver unique experiences while preserving the "old-school" feel of the game. It might take us several months to achieve the level of gameplay that would be worthy of "full release" status.”

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

“The full version of the game will feature multiplayer game modes that allow you to compete or collaborate with other players. We plan to create many more stages and items, which classic games never had before.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have 40 stages with 4 different themes, With Boss stages at the end of each theme. You will be able to check your scores at the end of each stage/theme and compare those to other players around the world. In addition, we also prepared a 'Challenge' mode, where you can score unlimited points and truly master the game.”

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

“Brave players will be able to acquire the spacecraft ticket for the same price, allowing them to enjoy the depths of space.”

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

“We will continue to communicate with players through Steam Discussions and Reviews section to create an even more enjoyable experience for everyone. We are also planning to develop additional content updates, the direction of which will be greatly influenced by our community.”
