What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We would like to get player feedback to decide how many levels and worlds this game should have. In early access, the game already has 23 levels that are 100% complete (music, art, coding, and so on). We would love to get player feedback to help us decide if we should aim at a 35-45 levels, or if it deserves a bigger scope.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Between 30 and 90 days. It will be enough to get feedback about the game and develop future levels taking those feedbacks into account.”

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

“The final version of this game will have at least 40 levels and 4 different scenarios. Those are already in the works, but player feedback will determine if we should develop more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At the current version, it has 23 levels that are complete (art, level design, coding, music, etc) and, as far as we know, bug-free.”

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

“After the end of early-access, the game will probably cost more than the current price. We are not sure yet about how much, that dependes on player feedback and new features developed for full release.”

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

“We are very interested in getting feedback of the community through the community hub. We are specially interested in knowing how many more levels the game should have and general suggestions to make it even better.”
