What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We firmly believe that involving the community as soon as possible in the development process allows us to create a much better game and experience.

Early access gives us the perfect opportunity to involve players before the game is completed, gather their feedback on current game mechanics, maps and incorporate their suggestions during the production process. Additionally, in an FPS/RTS multiplayer game, balance is key for the success of the game. Early access allows us host a much larger number of multiplayer games and gradually fine tune balance based on players feedback.

This process of constantly improving the game based on the comunity's feedback while we add new content will allow us to delivering the best possible experience to our players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to release the full version of the game in the next 4-6 months.”

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

“Since we already have the gameplay foundations in place we can now focus on adding content, polishing the experience, and fine tuning the weapon balance, unit AI, etc. We would love to involve the community as much as possible in this process so they can have a say in the final experience.

1) A single player/co-op campaign consisting in 12 levels in 3 different planets. (2 planets and 6 levels already included in Early Access, with 2 more in the works)
2) More PvP Levels (2 already included in EA)
3) More weapons (such as sniper rifle, heavy machine gun and energy blades)
4) More enemies ( especially in the final planet )
5) Ridable units and vehicles
6) Improved AI
7) More customization, like the new sandbox and endless modes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable and stable on all the available VR hardware and controllers, with the gameplay foundations laid down, and almost all the mechanics, structures and units completed.

- Main mechanics and abilities are ready to use (jetpack, teleport, force field, structure/unit placement, unit lasso selection, double click selection)
- Full range of options and settings to configure the game to your taste.
- 6 fully playable Single Player / Co-Op levels (Refinery, Protect, Outpost, Nebula, Snow Protect, Snow Caves)
- 2 fully playable PvP maps (Fortress, Frozen lake).
- Complete tutorial explaining all the mechanics in the game.
- Practice range where you can familiarize yourself with the enemies, units, structures and weapons.
- 3 PvP game modes (Destroy the base, Deathmatch, and Team Deathmatch) and 1vs1 automatic matchmaking system.
- 7 weapons (AK2 Gun, AK5 Machine gun, AK9 Missile launcher, MK2 Grenade, KL228 ShotGun, Gravity gun, Plasma Bow)
- 8 different enemies (Bug, Arthomarhe, Arthomarhe boss, Insect, Scorpio, Nebula scorpio, BugBomb, Dragon)
- Global leaderboards in all levels”

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

“The price of the full version will be higher than the early access version to reflect the higher value of the game once it's finished. All Early Access versions will automatically be updated to full versions upon release.

Please, expect constant updates in form of bug fixes, tweaks, features and major additions to content during the early access period.”

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