What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“It has been three years since we started developing Terraformers. The player feedback we received on the free Prologue has already helped us tremendously to improve the game, and we hope to achieve similar levels and quality of feedback during this last stage of development, in order to make the game as good as we can make it. Also, we think that the game is already in a state that it provides interesting and fun gameplay, and we don’t want to keep that from the players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate that the game will be in Early Access for 6 months.”

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

“The full game will have similar mechanics and features as the Early Access version, but include a lot more exciting projects you can do, lifeforms you can spread, leaders you can hire and events that can happen. Also, we will include players’ feedback in the full game to improve the user experience and tweak some interfaces. Lastly, during the Early Access stage we will continue to polish the game further, adding animations and quality of life improvements.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The features and mechanics are mostly finished in the Early Access version. Though the amount of content and scenarios you can play is fairly limited compared to the full game. We will continue to add content, scenarios and difficulty levels in the Early Access updates. All the features presented in the "about this" section are already implemented and available for Early Access.”

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

“Our current plan is to increase the price of the full game upon launch, if the added content and improvements justify it.”

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

“We invite all players to join our Discord Server, where we will keep a close eye on the suggestions and discussions. We will also regularly check the Steam forums to acquire feedback there.”
