What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We would like to extend development based on feedback from the community while also sharing the game with whoever wishes to play. This is because players keep suggesting features and modes that we feel that are good additions for the game. We want to release a good product that the community enjoys and feels a part of.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“At least for approximately 10 months.”

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

“We plan to add more features that will make the game engaging like adding betting and sponsor systems to make battles more engaging, adding a more complex upgrade system to have a better sense of character progression, adding multiplayer modes as that's most of the fun in fighting games, adding more story related content and cutscenes, ensuring full compatibility with Steam Saves, Controllers, Achievements and Cards.
Over time we also plan to release new characters, skins, arenas, weapons and skills based on the community's feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version will allow the player to get a good sense of what Gladihaters is, he can generate Fighters, use them in battles, earn profits, buy upgrades for the prison and arena, and receive emails related to the game story and his progression throughout the arena.
During the Early Access version there might still be bugs, missing art assets, broken saved files, but we hope to resolve this issues throughout the process.”

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

“We plan to raise the price when we leave early access.”

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

“Listening to the community feedback through our Discord channel, Reddit and Steam community and informing the community of our estimated roadmap, updates and releases at least .monthly”
