What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Skeletal Avenger has many roguelite elements which are a good fit for iterating during early access. We want to listen to the players to hear what are the most fun things in the game, and what will need more work. We may also get ideas for new perks, weapons, level features or upgrades from the early access audience. The game is quite far in development already, but we still think it benefits from early access even if it would be a short one.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The current launch window for the full version is Aug-Sep 2021. This is 1-2 months more than the first estimate This would mean roughly a four-month early access period from April to Aug. This schedule is looking quite certain at the moment but as always: Things are subject to change.”

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

“We plan to have more game content by releasing more biomes during early access. The biomes will come with related enemies, gear and levels. We also plan to have a NG+ mode which will enable endless replayability. In addition, our plans include various improvements for the co-op experience.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of the game has all of the final planned content. What is missing is some localization work, some smaller extra features, balancing and final tweaking. We'll work on those until the final launch day.”

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

“The price will remain the same throughout the early access except for some small discounts at early access launch and at full launch.”

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

“We are hoping to get community feedback at the Steam Discussions forums. While the big features are already considered locked, there is still room for additional ideas. Those who want to opt-in may also choose to send us their game logs inside the game. This will help us balance the game better.”
