What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our vision with Blast Brigade was to create a 2D metroidvania platformer with a broad appeal that still packs a challenge. Now that we've reached the Early Access milestone and have a rich gaming experience to share with players, we want to take this opportunity to listen to player feedback and work together with the community to improve the game and ensure that as many players as possible can have a blast with it.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate less than six months of development time on Blast Brigade remains—including finishing the remaining chapters, polishing, and bringing the game to different platforms. Depending on player feedback from Early Access, we may adjust this as necessary until we can confidently deliver an experience that we can all enjoy and be proud of.”

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

“The full version will include all planned chapters, biomes, and quests, with a total playtime of approximately 15-25 hours (depending on player skill, pace, and completionism). We will:

  • Finetune the difficulty curve by removing difficulty spikes overall, and adjusting the difficulty curve based on player feedback
  • Rework dialogue and voice overs to deliver a thoroughly fun tale filled with adventure, exploration, and explosions
  • Improve music and audio by adding more tracks and sound effects
  • Add new quality of life features and changes based on player feedback
  • Polish the game and fix bugs where relevant

We will add the following new content during Early Access:

  • 5 interconnected biomes (bringing the total to 11)
  • 2 new fully-playable characters with special abilities (bringing the total to 4*)
  • At least 5 challenging bosses (bringing the total to at least 13)
  • At least 3 additional guns (bringing the total to at least 9)
  • New unlockables, bonuses, and upgrades

*Three characters are technically present in the Early Access phase, but Galahad will get the chance to really shine after the first content update.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of the game is fully playable and provides a polished game experience that covers approximately 40-50% of the full game and around 8-12 hours of gameplay (depending on player skill, pace, and completionism). The Early Access version of Blast Brigade features:

  • 6 diverse, interconnected biomes to explore
  • 30 different types of enemies to neutralize
  • The first half of the story unravelling Dr. Cread’s evil plot to rule the world
  • 2 fully playable characters and their abilities, and a sneak peek at the third character
  • 7 challenging bosses to defeat
  • 6 different guns to unlock and cause mayhem with
  • 14 different perks to unlock and enhance your character with
  • A base to upgrade as you progress through the story

We’re confident that you should not encounter any critical bugs and will have a fun and enjoyable experience with Blast Brigade!”

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

“We do not intend to change the full price of the game after Early Access. We are launching the game with a discount at the start of the Early Access phase and are working on additional content that is yet to be announced that will also be made available for free to Early Access buyers. The game will also be available at a discount during select Steam sales throughout the Early Access period.”

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

“We always planned to introduce Blast Brigade as an Early Access game. As such, we want to stay closely connected with players throughout this phase so we can actively receive and act on their feedback. Players can connect with each other and share their feedback via the official Blast Brigade Discord server and the Blast Brigade Steam Community. Come say hi, but most importantly... have a blast!”
