What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Plunder Panic was originally built as a local multiplayer arcade cabinet supporting up to 12-local players. To prepare the game for broader distribution on PC through Steam, we are recreating Plunder Panic as a networked online multiplayer game that also supports local multiplayer.

During Early Access, we want to further flesh out the online multiplayer side of the game to discover what will continue bringing players back. We will explore elements like player rankings, achievements, character customizations and the like. Across Early Access, we want to further develop the eSports and tournament play aspects of the game. Early Access will also allow us to fully test our internet multiplayer systems for robustness, scalability, and efficiency.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate Plunder Panic being in Early Access for 5-6 months. A full release is anticipated for February of 2022 across Steam and major Consoles (Xbox, Playstation, Switch).”

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

“Across Early Access we will be developing the following features for the full version of Plunder Panic:

  • Public internet multiplayer games with online matchmaking.
  • Ranked and unranked online matchmaking.
  • eSports related game modes.
  • Additional weapons and other items.
  • Additional game modes (tournament, conquest, etc.)
  • Additional gameplay modifiers (all captains, friendly fire, etc.)
  • Additional levels and level hazards.
  • Player stat tracking and individual player achievements / cosmetic customization.

We plan grow and shape this list through feedback from our Early Access community.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The initial early access version includes local gameplay and private online multiplayer matches with up to 12-players. AI opponents can be added to either team so the game can be played with any number of local players from one to twelve. This version also includes five levels, a suite of weapons, and several game changing modify-arrs.

More robust online multiplayer options (eg: matchmaking) will be available soon, as well as additional game modes and modify-arrs.”

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. We want to reward the buccaneers that join our crew in Early Access with a reduced price.”

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

“We want to involve the community in shaping the online functionality of Plunder Panic, specifically what features allow them to easily play with their friends and keep them coming back for more.

In particular, we would like the community to provide feedback on the following:

  • What types of Game Modes are you interested in?
  • How much customization would you like to see?
  • What eSports and tournament play features would you like to see?
  • What elements are you interested in for character customization?
  • What stat tracking and “ranking” features would you like to see?

We are excited to work with our Early Access community to help shape Plunder Panic into an awesome multiplayer experience!”
