What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to make sure King of Crabs is ship shape and ready for combat! We know it is a lot of fun (ask the millions of players already enjoying it on other platforms) but we also know you're a discerning bunch and you deserve the best.

We need (and want!) your feedback, as we continue to build upon, update, and balance the game over the coming week and months. We're fully committed to finishing the game and launching it, but without your input, opinions, and feature requests we know it won't be everything it can be! We've built a strong community around the game, and want you to be part of it - making feature requests, pointing out anything that's just plain not fun, so we can fix it!

We want you to help us test the PC-specific features (settings, options, etc), make sure we've nailed the brand new controls (keyboard, customization, mouse, pads, etc) and by getting real gamers picking their favourite crabs and clashing in claw-to-claw combat online (cross-platform!) we'll be able to nail any issues with the all-important performance (quality settings, framerate, stuttering) and net code (lag, ping, servers, wait times, etc).

Not just that, but we'll be adding features, new playable Crabs, NPC's, bosses and tons more (see below) and we need to make sure they're up to the same standard - making the game better in all the ways that only you will know best.

We've approached this project as a ground-up game built for PC, and want to make sure we've really cracked it - only with your help can we make sure the full launch goes buttery smooth!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We aim to release King of Crabs around August 2020, assuming everyone's enjoying it!

King of Crabs is really close to being finished, we're just making sure to give everyone the best experience we can!”

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

“All kinds of great stuff is clawing its way into King of Crabs over the next few weeks and months, including (dates and features could be subject to change):

Steam launch version 1.0

  • Global leaderboard system
  • New Playable Crab: Demon Crab
  • New NPCs, Crocodile, Sharks and Sea gulls.
  • Bosses: Challenge yourself against tougher, smarter opponents


  • New modes: 4 - 8 player Deathmatch, Bounty, 3v3, featuring new environments
  • League system: with progression matching the best players
  • Pets: gain a friendly little helper!


  • Clan system & Team games
  • Additional player crabs, weapons and NPCs

When they're ready

  • Achievements
  • Leaderboards
  • Trading Cards

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“It's a full beta, ready to play, and expected to be polished in terms of presentation and feature complete-ness.

We're keen to stress test King of Crabs with more players, push the servers till they fall over, and find any bugs with what we've done to update the game for PC. Let's crack this open like a claw at a seaside crab bake, and get to that tasty meat!”

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

“King of Crabs will always be free to play! Yay!”

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

“We are taking suggestions, bugs & feedback in the steam forums of course, but also over at - we want to near your ideas for features, weapons, crabs, modes... the lot!”
