What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Gone Upstate is a new title where we would like to give our players the chance to help shape our vision of the game. We wish to build our community to ensure that the features being implemented on top of the sandbox will be what our players want.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate Gone Upstate will be in Early Access between 8-12 months. This depends on the support from our community.”

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

“Our vision for the full version is to include a story with characters and places of interest among towns and shops. We would also like the further expand the resources gathering and crafting to include things like mining, terrain alteration and include automated ways of crafting and economy generation. During Early Access the map, optimization and level of polish will evolve.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have the core sandbox mechanics and game loops ready in Gone Upstate for Early Access. You can gather, craft and buy/sell resources, hunt animals, plant and harvest crops, build houses and structures, buy and sell land for expansion while maintaining classic survival elements like hunger, sleep and health.

There are likely to be bugs present, and with the larger updates there is also a possibility of save games becoming incompatible and possibly wiped.”

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

“The price will increase as we add more features, and get closer to the final version of the game.”

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

“We encourage our players to suggest features and give us feedback on the Steam forum, our Discord server, social media etc. Our ears are open and we hope that everyone can share their thoughts to help us shape this into a wonderful game!”
