What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Dead Containment is currently a small yet stable game made by 1 person who enjoys making games as much as playing them, with big ambitions for this one. Early access lets these ambitions come to life through your support and allows Dead Containment to grow into a full and great gaming experience. From your feedback I can see what works and what doesn't along with taking on any suggestions for what you would like to see from the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Early access is estimated to be no more than 2 years before a full release with development still planned to continue after release.”

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

“Dead Containment will become a much larger game over time with a whole list of new additions already planned for this year.
  • New levels
  • New weapons
  • New enemies
  • Boss fights
  • Improved UI
  • Improved networking
  • Full settings menu
  • Weapon loadout options
  • Full Steam integration
Dead Containment will not come out from early access until all the above features are implemented and working.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Dead Containment currently has the core gameplay elements of multiple guns, server browser, scoring and crowds of zombies fully working along with both single-player and online co-op modes.”

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

“The price will change as larger content updates release with a final price set for full release. Currently an amount has not been set.”

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

“Social pages on services such as Discord, Reddit and Facebook are planned for a later date. This will allow the community to give feedback and suggestions for the game.”
