What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to test the game with a larger group of players. As a small team, we especially need help testing both the online multiplayer and open world components. Feedback from more people as we work on balancing and content would also be very valuable to us. It's easier to make tweaks and changes early and with live feedback, rather than going back later. Finally, we are also very used to listening to player feedback and putting in fan suggestions, such as what we did for Death Road to Canada updates, and this was very motivating for us.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“At this point with the recent March update, we've hit our below goals and are mostly responding to player feedback and doing final polish before the 1.0 launch! We're looking at a launch timeframe of somewhere between 1-2 months now.”

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

“UPDATE: We've currently hit most of our goals below, with way more things added than below in terms of content, polish, and overhauls! 1.0 launch is very close.

The EA version will be pretty far along at launch in terms of features, so the plan is to focus mostly on getting online multiplayer to run smoothly. As we do this, we are going to work on further content, polish, and balancing for the full version. Here are our plans for content additions, though they could change if we decide to focus more on certain things.

  • Making online multiplayer accessible in a beta branch, testing it thoroughly, then making it available in the main EA/release branch
  • More enemy types, including minibosses you can find in the world
  • More special weapons
  • More playable characters, currently 10 planned
  • A second set of character classes, one for each character, that will change their perk possibilities and equipment
  • More special buildings, including new enemy strongholds you can clear out
  • Testing and fleshing out of the different game modes, with more game modes coming
  • Possibly a new, third set of character classes, if there's demand
  • Various goofy fun stuff

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Online co-op is in with the Horde Defense mode, all the Open World modes are in and working. We've hit our goals, and are spending the last time of Early Access before 1.0 launch working on polish, fixes, and responding to player feedback and suggestions!”

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

“The price will increase over the course of Early Access, with a final price for 1.0 launch.”

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

“We will ask for feedback a lot on a Discord (linked to on the game title screen) where you can easily reach us, and we will also be checking the Steam community forums for feedback. Like we've done with previous games, we will be very involved with the community during development, both before and after launch.”

About This Game

Cannibal Crossing is an over the top action-survival game where you must explore a randomly generated town while scavenging, building a base, fighting hordes of deadly foes, and searching for a way to escape! Along the way, you'll encounter bandits, cannibals and beasts (mostly cannibals) – as well as other survivors. Face increasingly large swarms of enemies as you add to and improve your arsenal of weapons.


  • Play Alone – or With Up to 3 Friends: Face the days alone or get by with a little help from your friends in a cooperative experience. Run slightly faster than them so they get eaten instead of you.
  • Randomly Generated Open World: Earlsboro has a different layout every time you play, and you will have to adapt to find the supplies you need. Explore the town to find special encounters, unique buildings with their own specialized loot, and places to fortify for temporary safety.
  • Rescue Other Survivors: Help out other survivors, who will then be available to follow you around, help you upgrade buildings, and become permanently unlocked as playable characters.
  • Choose Your Character: There are 10 unique characters to play, with their own traits, special abilities, equipment, and playstyles. Each character has their own unique unlockable classes, for even more ways to play the game.
  • Build Your Base: You can pick any spot in the world to try to carve out a little bit of safety with a fortified base. Place down turrets, walls, and other defenses. Then place down structures to help out your team, such as Ammo Presses, Quantum Mailboxes, Smelters, Luck Shrines, and more.
  • Enemy Hordes: Nearly the entire town has turned into mutant cannibals with questionable manners, and worse things are coming. Fight or flee from your enemies, and get respite by hiding in buildings that you can barricade. Use firearms, explosive traps, melee weapons, fire, sniping, overly volatile parked cars, and other methods to face large groups.
  • Invasion Events: With a short warning, massive groups of enemies can descend on you. Run like hell, bring out your big guns, or get assistance from your base defenses. Sometimes, with stealth and fast reflexes, you can turn the tables and take the fight to the enemy's base instead of yours.
  • Big Bosses: Defeat special boss monsters to get closer to escaping the town. Watch out, as every boss kill makes future bosses stronger.
