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 before Summer 2021. This would mean roughly a two-month early access period from April to June. The schedule is subject to change though. In any case, the game won't have a massive early access period. It can be measured is months in any scenario.”

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

“We plan to have more game content by releasing The Dark Caverns and The Sorcerer's castle 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 around 40% of the final planned content. There are two fully implemented playable biomes: Dungeons and Sewers. The biomes include unique levels, tilesets, enemies, gear and final bosses. The co-op gameplay is also functional, but we haven't had much time to polish it, so the experience isn't optimal yet.”

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.”
