What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Since the free alpha release, we found that the best way to make The Planet Crafter really good was with the support of all the community feedbacks. We want to take the time to really give it our best shot and create an amazing experience for the players. As we are a small team of two, we think the Early Access is the best way for us to make the right game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our plan is to make the Early Access last between one and two years, depending on the players feedbacks and the content we chose to add in the game.”

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

“We plan to add in the final version :
  • More terraformation stages (mostly small life forms)
  • More story elements
  • More environmental treaths
  • A bigger world to explore with lot's of secrets and mysteries
  • At least one vehicule

It will NOT contains :
  • Monsters or aliens creatures, figthing or any kind of violence

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“It's a single player experience of survival and crafting a desolated planet into a green lush world. Exploration, crafting, unlocking technologies and base building are already present in the game and all the core systems are there. The planet will slowly evolve from a red desolated wasteland to a beautiful land with water and trees as you unlock and craft all the tech required to do so.”

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

“We want the price to represent what's already in the game. As the game grows, the price will rise to correspond to the experience given to the player. So the price will change either over the course of Early Access, or at full launch.”

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

“Our community has been heavily involved over the course of the development. We are monitoring Steam forums and our discord to get as much player feedback as possible. We even developed an in game feedback form to get the most direct and efficient player feedbacks. This is really important for us, as we want to make the game the players wants.”
