What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Helskate is an ambitious blend between cult classic skateboarding games and roguelikes. Therefore, we decided to launch in Early Access to ensure that we create a game that’s not only complete but has a great overall feel and fun factor. We think that the best possible way to do that is through taking your valuable feedback and using it to continuously improve the game!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate that the 1.0 version of Helskate will take around a year to be released. However, we want to take our time developing ideas through your feedback to create a complete experience so it may take slightly longer. During that time we will be actively supporting Helskate!”

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

“In the full version, we plan to include more uniquely themed worlds, including all new weapons, items, levels, enemies, boss fights. The full version is also planned to feature a completed narrative and most importantly the polished roguelike experience based on community feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version includes World 1 (of 3) of the game with Anton Falcon as the main playable character fighting through Vertheim with a variety of weapons, attacks, and cool tricks to take on fearsome enemies and bosses. The main thing is that you will be able to experience the main systems and core of the game”

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

“The price will likely increase when we release the 1.0 version. This is due to the amount of new content we’re planning to put in the game. However, we’d like to emphasize that the price will not increase by too much after the full release”

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

“This is the main reason we are releasing Early Access! Especially because Helskate’s concept and mix of genres is quite ambitious (skateboarding roguelike), we need to develop it alongside the community. The feedback by you, from the balance of primary features to even the smallest observations, are a huge part of our development process and helps ensure that we deliver a polished and enjoyable experience!”
