What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game works well and is fun to play right now. But as a solo developer, there are inevitably some bugs and crashes that I either haven't been able to reproduce or haven't yet encountered, as well as balancing issues. Early access will provide valuable feedback in prioritizing and addressing any remaining issues.

I hope that early access will also allow me to build a community around the game, which in turn will help guide future development and content decisions.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“About 1 year.”

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

“I plan for the game to have more content and be relatively free of bugs and crashes. The current version has 5 stages and 9 hats. I plan on doubling that by full release. Other improvements may include gameplay balancing, customizable controls, and more game modes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core game and gameplay loop is feature complete. The current version supports up to 6 players online and 5 players locally (4 controllers and m+kb). There are 5 stages and 9 hats to choose from. CPUs can be added as needed.”

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

“No, I plan for the base game to always be free. I may add paid DLC at some point in the future.”

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

“I will invite the community to my discord channel and Steam discussion forums to give feedback on bugs, crashes, balancing, and features. This will help me prioritize future development. Although my following is small, I've consistently provided updates on the last two years of development on my Twitter and Discord.”
