What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Fishery is in early access as I'd like to include the players / community in developing the game and allow them to provide feedback which I can respond to instantly!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The Fishery will approximately be in early access for around (with everything going to plan and no major issues along the way) 4-8 months.”

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

“The full version of The Fishery is planned to differ from the early access version by having an improved and increased amount of features, such as (and not promised nor limited to):

- A vast amount of places / lakes to travel and fish
- A lot more species of fish
- Improved character and item customisation
- Different ways of fishing (e.g feeder)
- A comprehensive depth system
- Use ways of travelling on the water such as a kayak, boat and whatnot”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Please refer to the main information of The Fishery for a full list of current features and functions.”

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

“The price will change once The Fishery has left early access; the reason it is priced at what it is currently, is as a thank you to those who would like to support the development of The Fishery and provide valuable feedback!

At the end of early access; or possibly during early access, the price will gradually increase as more content becomes available.”

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

“I plan to involve the community in all aspect of development - whether it be what fish should be added next or the next lake to be added!

I will be in constant contact with the community and plan to do so throughout all of The Fishery's development stages. This will be through Discord or on The Fishery's Steam community forum.”
