What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Gunlocked is filled with weapons, upgrades, and enemies that can interact in multiple ways. Getting the game into players' hands as early as possible means I can more quickly and easily add and balance additional content.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Additional development is expected to take 5-7 months.”

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

“Early Access will see a huge swath of content added to the game. New enemies, bosses, pilots with unique attributes, powerups, weapons and upgrades, difficulty options, and more!

Expect consistent audio and visual improvements to new and existing content as well.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current build provides players with a full game loop to play through, start to finish. I have a lot of ideas on ways to expand the gameplay experience beyond the list below, but the following represents a list of both what is in the game, and what I am confident will be added.

  • 10 of 12 planned weapons w/ multiple upgrade levels each
  • 11 of 12 planned utilities w/ multiple upgrade levels each
  • 5 of 5 planned powerups
  • 12 of 20 planned enemy/hazard types
  • 1 of 3 planned evolving bosses
  • 3 of 4 planned playable pilots
  • 3 of 15 planned ship augments
  • 1 of 6 planned difficulty levels
  • 12 of 50 planned achievements
  • 0 of 0 planned NFT's ;)

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

“I plan to gradually raise the price as I add new content and features.”

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

“Steam discussions, Twitter, and a Discord server will allow players to give a constant stream of feedback to shape the game. From balancing the power of upgrades and enemies, to behind-the-scenes previews, I am looking to foster a passionate community around an expanding experience.”
