What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're a group of a dozen friends who wanted to make a game together. A completely independent small studio with no funding who make games as a passion project.

Due to that, we want to take the time to get player feedback before we finish the full game. While we think the current product is a great game in its own right, we want to include our players in the process of making the game. We've already implemented dozens of suggestions from the community hub during the demo and look forward to the additional feedback we can get during Early Access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We believe it could be anywhere from 3 months to 1 year. We think 6 months is the most likely timeline.”

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

“We plan to increase from 4 places to visit to 6. We have some plans to go as many as 8 but this will depend on player interest and feedback about the designs. Planets bring with it new equipment, resources, and bosses. We'll also be polishing current game systems and boss fights as our skills improve.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We anticipate the game is around 5-15 hours of gameplay for most players. Right now we have 4 mostly complete planets that you can visit with bosses. Additionally this comes with dozens of upgrades. You can mine, plant, harvest asteroids, fight monsters/bosses, solve puzzles, and more.”

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

“We will either keep the price the same or increase by about 33% upon full release.”

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

“The best place to get involved would be via Discord. We'll be reading that everyday and responding as often as possible. Additionally BlueFire will be reading the community hub every couple of weeks.”
