What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Player experience means a lot to the development team here at Emergency Entrance Studios. While we have done closed playtests in-studio, we feel it is time to get feedback from the general public. We are excited to show everyone what we have been working on, while also getting feedback that can be incorporated into our game.

We want to make this development a joint effort between the development team and community, come help us out!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Because we are looking at ways to improve our game, we will be in Early Access for approximately two months while we get and implement players' feedback!

Look for our official release at the end of April 2020!”

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

“We are looking to add new art assets in the game to flesh out the environments. We are looking to use player feedback to help fill in the rest of the game! There will be more levels, boss fights, and more things to explore in the overworld. We are also looking to add cinematics and other narrative elements to help flesh out the game world.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core mechanics of the game are in and have been tested thoroughly. We are now in the state of development where we are polishing, implementing finished/updated art assets and looking to add a few more levels and puzzles throughout the game.
Some features that players can expect to see are:
  • 4 levels for players to play through and solve puzzles using their mechanics.
  • An overworld with puzzles and collectibles.
  • Two primary mechanics and two complementary mechanics:
-Elevating Earth
-Boulder Telekinesis
-Breaking off Elevating Earth
-Riding on Boulders for Navigation”

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

“Not at all! We are looking to show off our game to anyone who's interested in playing! Due to this, we will remain free to play after officially launching.”

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

“We plan to listen to any feedback given to make Mya of the Desert the best game possible. We will be keeping a keen eye on the community page and comments left on our store page!

Please also hit us up on Twitter @entrancestudios with your comments and suggestions!”

About This Game

Embark on a journey to restore life to a world plagued by entropy. Traverse the landscape as Mya, a desert wanderer, in order to return the spirits of the Geomancers to their sacred mosaic. Gifted with the power of the Geomancers by the mosaic’s guardian spirit, Mya will elevate pillars of earth and bend rocks to her will to overcome the obstacles of the desert, solve the puzzles within the Geomancers’ abandoned temples, and overcome the Golem that’s been awoken by the decaying mosaic!

Mya of the Desert is a Puzzle Platforming game with an emphasis on using earth manipulation abilities to solve environmental puzzles. Made by graduate students at the University of Utah’s EAE program, this thesis project represents two years of learning.

Key Features:
  • Learn the Powers of the Geomancers: Extrude pillars of earth from the ground! Pickup and throw rocks from a great distance, or ride those babies for miles!
  • The Desert Awaits: Explore an open world desert, dotted with the remains of temples once inhabited by both the Geomancers and their betrayer!
  • Save the Mosaic: Life has drained from the desert ever since the sacred mosaic was first broken. Collect the spirits shaken loose, now scattered throughout the desert to return life to the world around you!
