What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Aquarist is an incredibly relaxing game that allows you to make your underwater dreams
come true without having to buy an actual aquarium. You can take care of interesting creatures,
observe the temperature and other necessary parameters, and diversify the environment of your
underwater friends without leaving your comfortable chair - and we want this experience to be
even better!
Early Access gives us the opportunity to maintain relationships with our players and repair any
problems they may encounter during the game. We want our product to be the best as possible
and Early Access is an opportunity to make it so.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate that the game will be in Early Access between 6 and 12 months. This is an
adequate time to maintain relationships with players, identify pressing topics and address them.
It's a great opportunity to get to know your thoughts and make the game even better - for you!”

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

“We want to improve the game itself, and focus on providing the most relaxing gameplay
possible. The final version of the product will include:
- new features
- different levels with interesting creatures
- improvements of the already existing levels
The changes will also depend on the feedback of our players. We are here and we are listening
to you - and you let us know what you need.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Early Access of the Aquarist will be available from February 2022 on Steam and now we invite
you to play both the demo and first job versions, which allow you to have two different
undewater adventures!”

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

“The Early Access release of the Aquarist, which will be available from February 2022, is a
game for true enthusiasts of the underwater world and, as a less polished version, it will cost
less than the official version.
The official game will be more detailed, so its price will be slightly higher than that in Early
Access, but it will be offering more interesting creatures and new, previously unknown features.”

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

“Together with our players, we have built a fantastic community on Discord where we share our
thoughts and ideas. Our players can report bugs to us there, and we will fix them and inform you
about changes that are taking place in the games on a regular basis. We believe that also this
time we will be able to count on our players and once again co-create another product with
them. You can easily become one of them - we can't wait for your feedback!”

About This Game

Hard task - hight reward

Running an aquarium shop is a real challenge! Clients will entrust you with difficult tasks you have to cope with. In return, a reward awaits you. Intended for business development - buying new fish, exotic plants, a store or developing skills

Recycling and ecology

Every self-respecting entrepreneur cares about his business. Refurbishing and processing aquarium components will save you a lot of time and money and it's good for environment.

Let your imagination run wild

Create an aquarium in which each fish will want to live. Thanks to the variety of objects in the game, you can implement even the craziest ideas! A green, blooming oasis or raw, antique busts? The choice is yours.

Underwater dance

We provide you with many species of fish and freshwater plants. Your task is to create an ecosystem that is balanced and safe for the inhabitants of your aquariums. Remember that a slight deviation from the parameters necessary for the survival of one species may be crucial for the survival of another!

Control the temperature, environment and nourishment to provide a suitable environment. Don’t forget to develop your aquarium and after a while you will be able to open an aquarist shop!
