What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We’re still working hard on Bushfires: Animal Rescue! Since we see great potential in our game, we try to do our best to create fun game to play. New environments and animals living in the particular biotopes will be added over the course of game development. By making EA of the game we can gather useful feedback and suggestions. We also plan to get some of the best community ideas and put them into Bushfire: Animal Rescue. Our team really appreciates the possibility to create game with Steam community as we can create something that players will really enjoy playing.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are really excited to work on it and do our best to finish it as soon as possible, But we also want to create balanced and fun game to play, therefore we expect to launch full version of the game in 1 - 2 years period.”

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

“Full version will consist of 4 new biotops, animals and much more! We plan to create around 20 levels and some secret (bonus) levels for even more content. Since Australia consists of multiple biotops, we want to recreate them with most of the animals and flora that can be found there.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Game consists of 5 levels with gradually increasing difficulty. All of them are part of DESERT biotop- first of 5 biotops we are planning to create.

More information about levels:

Level 1 - Get yourself ready! Your mission is to avoid fires and to rescue as many animals as possible. Reach the finish before your time is off and don't forget to follow the marks to find the right direction to go.

Level 2- Attention! Fires are getting closer and closer and animals are to be rescued from further distances as the car has limited mobility in some areas. Train yourself in aiming and catching!

Level 3 - This time you have water in your car toolset to extinguish the fires and to free trapped animals. Water is limited, but can be filled in at the water pump. Your ultimate challenge is to catch birds into your nets by finding the right moment to shoot the net when they are landing or taking off.

Level 4 - You have bait to use for animals hiding from fire in their burrows, for animals that cannot be caught in any other way.

Level 5 - You are running in front of the fire that follows your car, literally “breathing on your neck”. Mind that stopping means a risk of death. Catch as many animals along the way to escape.”

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

“We really appreciate our community for supporting our game and providing us useful feedback. Therefore our early supporters will have possibility to get the game for free or later on for some small fee since we will gradually increase the price of Bushfres: Animal Rescue in early access as we add more content and features.”

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

“We plan to create community that will participate in creation of Bushfires: Animal Rescue by providing helpful feedback and suggestions. We will create better, more enjoyable and balanced game by applying all of the awesome feedback we can get. Our team is also planning to create new content such as new types of animals living in different biotops and we would love if our community could participate by choosing some of the animals that will appear in our game. We will collect feedback in the Steam Discussions as well as our Discord server and then use that feedback to improve our game. We are planning to evaluate this feedback as soon as possible and make monthly updates of the improved game.”

About This Game

Immerse yourself in an authentic atmosphere of Australian diverse biotops set in fire while exploring the Australian heritage sites and popular sightseeings!

Drive through Australia as fast as possible to save endangered and endemic species by catching them into the nets.

Extinguishing fire is a critical skill to your survival and to the animals you indent to rescue. Fire is an obstacle on your way to animals to be rescued which spreads differently on a different level. Use water to free animals trapped in fire.

Use bait when animals are hiding scared in burrows.
Birds are also part of your rescue mission.
Finally, explore the lives of animals catched in the journal, including fun facts that you didn't know about.

PLEASE NOTE: We’re still hard at work on Bushfires: Animal Rescue! New environments and animals living in the particular biotopes will be added during the course of game development. Please watch the latest YouTube videos to see the game’s latest state. Get started right away in exploring different level’s mechanics set in the iconic Australian desert!
