What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I am the sole developer of COUNTDOWN and while I have a close-knit group of friends who help playtest regularly, I would love YOUR input on task ideas, game mode ideas, and gameplay settings!

If you decide to buy the game, a link to join our discord is on the main menu.

Join the discord and ask me for some free keys! I'll happily give you some keys so your friends can play too!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Planning full release by aug 1”

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

  • Dedicated Servers ( If I have enough revenue to support spinning up AWS servers )
  • Twitch integration for streamer interaction
  • Steam Achievement System
  • Aesthetic elements to characters through a progress/achievement system

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We are very close to being able to release 1.0!

The following is working:
  • In-game proximity chat
  • 3 maps are available
  • Android station hacks( Power, Locking doors, Airlock ejection, reactor meltdowns )
  • Gameplay settings ( Sprinting stamina, # of tasks, station detonation time )
  • Private/public games (Steam invite your friends for private games)
  • 1st person/third person

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

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

“The playtesting team plays on tuesday/thursdays at 9 pm cst. Join our discord and help shape the future of COUNTDOWN.

About This Game

Play with up to 12 players online and work together to prepare to escape the space station before it is destroyed. But watch out! Androids have "woken up" and are attempting to destroy the station and all witnesses!

I am the sole developer of COUNTDOWN and while I have a close-knit group of friends who help playtest regularly, I would love YOUR input on task ideas, game mode ideas, and gameplay settings!
