What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is an opportunity for us to understand what you expect or are content with, we can expand our game accordingly together. Early Access builds are the evolved form of our demo and closed betas, tried and tested, to deliver quality gameplay.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“̶R̶o̶a̶d̶m̶a̶p̶ ̶g̶o̶a̶l̶s̶ ̶m̶u̶s̶t̶ ̶b̶e̶ ̶a̶c̶c̶o̶m̶p̶l̶i̶s̶h̶e̶d̶,̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶s̶ ̶i̶s̶ ̶e̶x̶p̶e̶c̶t̶e̶d̶ ̶n̶o̶t̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶e̶x̶c̶e̶e̶d̶ ̶5̶-̶6̶ ̶m̶o̶n̶t̶h̶s̶.̶ ̶F̶u̶l̶l̶ ̶r̶e̶l̶e̶a̶s̶e̶ ̶m̶a̶y̶ ̶o̶c̶c̶u̶r̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶Q̶1̶ ̶2̶0̶2̶3̶.̶

Early Access has taken longer than originally planned for due to expansion of features. We are aiming for but cannot promise a full release in Q4 2023-Q1 2024.”

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

“The campaign world map in the Early Access version will be restricted and expanded until the full version is released. The full version will include more missions and perhaps additions of a couple more boats, call ins, etc on top of the final Early Access builds. The game already is mechanically developed, in fact, we seem to have filled all the buttons on the gamepad. We don't intend to add more features in terms of mechanics, apart from reworks or quality of life mechanics.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version offers,

• Real time naval combat with crew management,
• Three playable boats with many predetermined loadouts.
• Many challenge scenarios to rank S.
• An ever-improving dynamic Campaign using an abstracted world map of the Solomon Islands to traverse, pick fights, and progress your crew and boat.
• The Fleet Endurance mode that lets you customize your boat and recruit allies to fend off waves of enemies.

The Early Access campaign aims to offer,
• Progression and further improved, vast customization of boat loadouts/builds.
• Completion of the features outlined in the roadmap and discussed in the bi-weekly Developer's Diaries.”

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

“The game started out with a discount in its first two weeks, before settling to its current price, which is now the baseline price for this game. Price increases are possible as more content is added throughout Early Access and after release. On full release there will be a discount for a brief period so the game can briefly be purchased at a price set during Early Access.”

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

“We were always receptive during the demo and beta eras, this will continue. Suggestions for additions of player or enemy vessels, weaponry, etc. will be appreciated.

About This Game

Experience the gripping narrative of Boat Crew set amidst the tumultuous Pacific War. Command a PT boat and its crew through intense battles against the Imperial Japanese Navy. Engage in an open, dynamic campaign where every decision influences the war effort. You decide how and where to participate: raid enemy bases, protect allies, undertake daring missions, or shape the narrative through scripted challenges that offer insights into the crew's trials amidst wartime chaos.

Balance tactical victories with strategic decisions, caring for your crew and customizing your boat to adapt to evolving battle demands. In Boat Crew, triumph hinges not just on firepower, but on shrewd tactics and resourceful maneuvering against overwhelming odds.

Your choices directly impact the outcome of history in the Pacific theater of World War II. Immerse yourself in the action, and lead your crew to victory in Boat Crew.

Lead Your Crew to Victory

Asymmetrical Challenge and Tactical Mastery

Embrace the role of the underdog, facing powerful adversaries with a lightly armored PT boat. Triumph not through sheer firepower, but through superior tactics, maneuvering, and the ingenuity of your weaponry.

Dynamic Campaign of Strategic Significance

Care for your crew's well-being, balance risk assessments, and witness the impact of experience on their lethality. Customize your boat with a wide selection of weapons and tools, crafting unique loadouts to face the challenges of war.

Authentic Setting, Intense Action
