What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access will allow us to access additional customization options based on community feedback as well as allow time for available community content to grow. This time will also be used to address bugs and any usability issues that users may have.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“Approximately 6-12 months.”

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

“The primary function of the software will remain the same. The full version will have increased stability, performance options, and customization options. Some examples of potential customization options include the ability to change folder icons or change your folder start location.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core functionality is already there. Video, image, and colour backgrounds can be applied to your file explorer. Steam Workshop support is also complete allowing users to share and download themes through the Steam Workshop.”

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price may increase upon full release.”

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