What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Festoon is currently in Early Access to gain feedback for it's many features, kill any bugs that are lurking under the hood and establish a user base.
The features on Festoon are all working - but we want to be cautious initially and ensure that early users know that they have the opportunity to directly contact our developer who will be actively fixing any bugs that are reported.
We also think that early users may have some feedback on user interface issues - enabling us to streamline their experience and the ability for the software to be used intuitively.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Early access will hopefully run for around one month.”

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

“The full version will have any latent or so far undetected bugs removed from it. We want to ensure this before setting it for full release.
Again we hope that the software is already intuitive to users but if feedback determines otherwise the full version may have variations on how the user interacts with any current features.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early access version currently functions very well, but we want to ensure there are no undetected glitches or bugs within it.”

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

“We won't have a different price for the early access at this point.”

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

“During Early access communication with the community is vitally important to us to improve Festoon for its final release.

We hope that Festoon's Steam Forum will provide direct connections with the community. So we'll be active on that and fully welcome feedback, suggestions and bug reports in there.
