What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I've always developed my small games out in the open with public builds available for feedback. While Tiny Combat Arena is bigger than any game I've made before, it will be no different. Now that the majority of the core gameplay is playable, what's left are the areas of the game that benefit most from community feedback and involvement.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The current plan is to remain in early access for 12-18 months. However, this is not set in stone and the timeline may be extended in order to implement fixes and features based on community feedback.”

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

Content: New scenarios, vehicles, anti-aircraft, new weapons, custom loadouts, a more detailed world, and more based on community feedback.
Polish: There are plenty of areas of the game right now that are functional, but could look or work better. The launch of the game should be as bug free, performant, smooth, and polished as possible.
Ease of Use: A major goal I have for the game is to make it easy for new players to get into. This area is the part that I think will need the most development, since it will include things such as UI, control scheme tweaks, configurable gameplay options, difficulty options, and fleshing out the ingame Database.
Customizable Loadouts: This is one of my favorite features of flight sims, allowing you to fine tune your weapon set for a specific mission.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current game has almost all of the gameplay features together, but lacks content and polish. At launch there will be:
  • One flyable aircraft (AV8B)
  • One instant action map
  • One Arena map/scenario
  • Limited, but representative set of 5 weapons
  • Limited, but representative presets for loadouts

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

“The price of the game will increase as we add more content and features, and when we leave early access. We will alert our followers ahead of time of any incoming price increase.”

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

“From the beginning I've wanted Tiny Combat Arena to be an accessible entry point into the flight simulation genre. Finding how best to create a polished experience with as minimal a barrier to entry as possible, is where feedback from you, the community is most valuable. On another front, I want to get the community involved as early as possible to help make the creation of community created content as easy as is practical.”

What is the experience of Tiny Combat Arena?

Tiny Combat Arena is a labor-of-love combat flight simulator that aims to strike the perfect balance between a simulator and an approachable, customizable, air combat experience. All executed in a stylized look representing a fictional Cold War-era conflict.

Sim-lite combat flight model

Tiny Combat Arena is all about the fun factor of flying, dogfighting, and close air support. Simulation elements are added to the game in service of creating engaging and deep gameplay, never just for the sake of realism. Simulation inspired mechanics, such as boosting a missile's range by launching from above your target, create a new range of tactics for you to explore.

Quick Mission Builder

Tiny Combat Arena lets you jump in and fly by quickly assembling various types of missions. Take a placid stroll around beautiful scenery, configure a team vs team dogfight against aircraft of your choosing, or strike objectives with ground units to attack and support.

Arena Mode

Plan your moves on the strategic map; pick objectives, identify threats, choose which units to support, and where to make a difference. There is a war going on around you, and your participation will affect its outcome.

Detailed and useful database

The in-game database provides players with not only detailed statistics on vehicles, aircraft, and weapons, but also to give tactical guidance on how to approach different aircraft and respond to different threats.
