What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game has been in development for two years now. The demo and the playtest have received feedback for a year before the Early Access. The game is in a great state to move into Early Access and to be developed together with the feedback from the Early Access players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The current plan is to have the game in Early Access for about six months.”

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

“The goal is that players with different skill levels and play styles would find the game entertaining and easy to understand and that there would be enough variety to make the runs interesting. The feedback received during the Early Access will shape what sort of things will be prioritized during the Early Access.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game has already a lot of content, features and systems that I've wanted to add and the game has already received multiple updates and fixes based on the player feedback before entering Early Access.

You can have full runs and a boss fight in the current version. You can also loop the runs after finishing the boss fight.

The game currently has:

  • 15 Different Unit Types
  • 23 Different Item Types
  • 7 Interactable Building Types
  • 5 Song tracks (4 during the levels and 1 in the menu)
  • 5 Enemy Types
  • 1 Boss Fight

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

“The price may increase as the game approaches the full release.”

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

“All the constructive feedback is very much appreciated! You can give feedback on the Steam Forums or using the Feedback form inside the game.”
