What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Too Many Cooks in its current state has a solid foundation with two unique characters, weapons, and levels. Each level has their own enemies as well as bosses, and each run in the game can be quite varied depending on your upgrades. The customisable difficulty setting, permanent upgrade shop, and unlockable upgrades with allow each run to be different. We want to make the best game we can, we want to seek continuous feedback from players to continue improving the game, which is only possible in Early Access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our intention is to remain in Early Access for a maximum of one year, though this duration could potentially change based on the game's reception and any innovative ideas that may emerge during the development process.”

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

“The current version of Too Many Cooks forms a solid core, with unique characters, weapons, levels, enemies, and bosses. We plan to add onto this with more content including additional characters, weapons, and levels adding even more to the replayability.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current early access version is a complete version of the first two levels, characters, and weapons, along with everything listed in the features of the store page. All aspects of the final game are included in the early access aside from some additional levels, characters, and weapons. More upgrades will also be added as the game progresses, similar to many other early access roguelite titles.”

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

“It is unlikely that the price will increase with the full release, though this is not guaranteed.”

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

“We have in-game feedback and bug reports for the community to help me improve the game both in content as well as issues. There is also a specific Discord for Too Many Cooks where we take feedback and bug reports. We are hopeful that the feedback can help shape future additions. Let us know what you think so we can make the best game possible!”
