What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“With the direction our game is taking it’s becoming more and more apparent that the best approach we can take is to involve our community more during the development of our game, and to the best way of achieving that is Early Access. We know what we’re finding fun about the gameplay, though with each test from outside the team we’re seeing all kinds of helpful feedback from fixes to new takes on the mechanics (including some simply evil level ideas) and we’d love to have the opportunity to explore that further. Going Early Access means those discussions can take place, and we’re hopeful that the feedback will bring us down avenues that our current roadmap could never have predicted.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Should we secure the means to continue the project we're aiming to work on the game until it's suitably complete to begin with which would take 12 months at least (Q3 2022). This is subject to change a bit depending on the feedback and funding sources though in general we'd love to keep creating content packs potentially after launch.”

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

“Whereas in the early access the first biome and levels will be complete, the full version would have approximately 45 levels across 3 biomes - each biome including new level art, new tools, elements, and statuses. In the future we're hoping to create a level editor to allow people to build all sorts of situations. Along the journey we’re aiming to implement a lot of general upgrades such as a revised UI, more optimised core mechanics, and achievements.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core mechanics are mostly complete (world elemental system and Pammy character behaviour) although our level creator is currently dev side only. Our first biome includes the elements of fire, water, and smoke, a city themed environment, 10 levels, and 6 tools.”

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

“The price will gradually be raised to reward our early supporters though in general we'd like to keep the price low.”

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

“We'd love to get the community's thoughts on which features to prioritise by showing our roadmap or starting discussions on upcoming features. Input for level ideas would be wonderful - in the future we're aiming to make our level editor for players to create sandbox situations and hopefully highlight fun new directions to try things out. We’ve set up a Trello board marking our roadmap to be more transparent on which things we’re focusing on first and to encourage feedback or feature voting. We're posting updates frequently enough on our website and Twitter, and likewise we've set up a Reddit and Discord for updates and events too”

About This Game

In a world full of hazards, the "if it ain't broke" line of thinking has lead to quite a precarious situation. Instead of taking preventive caution like say, fire escapes, instead the only company on the planet decides to hire you as a crisis manager. Use the corporate-provided tools (oft comprised of dangerous materials themselves) to prevent imminent chaos and guide the alien species known as 'Pammies' to safety.

In each location an accident is bound to happen. First, set up your equipment in the space. When things kick off, use your tools to mitigate the calamity that would otherwise cause all of the pammies to perish. Save the pammies! Or don't; the company will keep you on as crisis manager regardless of your performance.

- Behaviour: Pammies aren't smart yet they aren't stupid either
- Elements: Each biome has elements that impact the levels
- Tools: crisis management equipment will be provided
