What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is play-ready, and as a small, indie developer, we wanted to get this out to users who are welcome to provide feedback and suggestions for improvement.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“2 to 3 months.”

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

“We'd like to improve the music, sound effects, and perhaps offer more unique "bosses" to battle with.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Fully playable, 100 levels of action, over 25 types of enemy fighters, numerous power ups, 4 skill levels, and even a Retro mode.”

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

“The price will not change when we leave early access.”

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

“Absolutely. This has been a labor of love for me. The game plays homage to a couple classic 80s arcade games, and as far as I know, is unique in the shmup category. I like to think I have refined the controls and UI in this game, but I'm also sure a larger audience will provide feedback needed to make this a great experience for all users. We will be monitoring the Steam community forums, but you can contact us directly at astrokicker@quadrivosoftware.com.”

About This Game

Mixing old and new, Astrokicker is inspired by classic shootemups going back to the 80s, with a few twists.
