What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Working together with players to build the game will create a better experience! In Early Access, we have the opportunity to gather feedback, discuss changes, and iteratively develop together with a community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our goal is to build a great game and not release until we have done that! To that end, we cannot put a firm date on the end of Early Access. Our hope, though, is that by working with players for 6 to 12 months we will be able to move to final release.”

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

“The full 1.0 version will have additional content for character and van customization as well as a new season pass with a new set of reward content. Band gear options and decks will be extended and provide for more balanced game-play. Final localization options will also be available upon release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the current game, planned core features have been implemented. Characters and band's vans are fully customizable. You can create or join a band with other players and compete in a 64-band online tournament. Each tournament takes between 45 and 60 minutes from start to finish. There are four instruments (guitar, bass, drums, keys) in the game, each with its own unique deck that will unlock more cards as it is played.”

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

“We have no concrete plans yet with pricing, but it is likely that the price will increase over the course of Early Access as the game evolves.”

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

“We use our Discord server and the Steam forums as the primary channels to share ideas and communicate with the community. All players are encouraged to suggest new features and changes in the "Game Suggestions" channel. Any upcoming changes are discussed with the community for early feedback.”
