What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“There's still content that I want to add to the game, such as the one outlined in the roadmap (dungeons, electricity, bosses, vehicles, settlement managment etc.). The game right now is ready to play, but I feel like it's best to continue its development alongside players in order to get the necessary feedback and and a sense of direction as to which areas of the game should the development be prioritized on.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“When all the content that I envisioned for this game is already in it, I will release it. Judging by the time it took to develop the existing content, the game should come out of Early Access by the end of 2020.”

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

“The full game will feature the content listed in the roadmap.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All the features listed in the "About This" section are already implemented, please refer to that section for details. The game in its current state is still missing certain items, creatures, weapons, structures and other features outlined in the roadmap such as dungeons, electricity, bosses, vehicles, settlement managment and overall polish which will come along in the future updates. All of that is planned, but the implementation takes time, hence the early access.”

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

“With more content, the price is likely to increase.”

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

“I'll be communicating with the community using both Discord and the Steam Community. I'll be listening to player feedback to make the game more fun for everybody, prioritize overlooked areas of development, fix reported bugs and other issues.”

About This Game

Hotfix is a chromosome enriched solo indie game inspired by Minecraft and Enter the Gungeon. Create your own - near infinite - world full of randomly generated structures filled with guns and loot. Explore, build, and gather resources during the day and avoid robotic "dogs" powering up at night.



  • Procedurally generated world using a seed, with different biomes ranging from deserts to snowy tundras, randomly generated settlements, enemy hideouts, deadly robotic dogs scattered everywhere, and other structures



  • Top-down shooter mechanics to combat enemies and tear down the world using all kinds of weapons - from pistols to chromosome launchers



  • Lots of craftable building structures - floors, walls, windows, lights, furniture - that you can use to build your own base and reshape the world to your liking



  • Character customization including a variety of hair, a color wheel for your skin and hair color, and different clothes to find in-game



  • Farming mechanics allowing you to plant crops, bushes, and breed animals using the semen blaster



  • Caves full of ores, materials, and poop that you can gather and trade with merchants



  • Three different game modes: survival - the default game experience, creative - enabling you to build and experiment in peace, and hardcore - a permadeath mode

  • ...and more!



Because this is a solo indie game, I can keep adding new content and support the game for years to come, purely out of passion. Here's what you can expect in the future:

  • More of the type of content existing in game (items, creatures, weapons, structures etc.)
  • Polishing of existing content
  • Automation and electricity
  • Dungeons
  • Settlement building
  • Modding support
  • Vehicles
  • Accessories with special abilities and armor
  • Bosses
  • Improved progression
  • Performance updates
  • ...and more!
