What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to make the best game we can, and even after the release of chapter one the best way to continue development is with the help of our community. Holt is a long story with a rich and colorful world, and Early Access is a way for us to receive constant valuable feedback, collaborate with our players on what they want to see, and keep our players in mind at every step of the development cycle.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“At least a year, but depending on the content we choose to put into the final game, it may be a long wait.”

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

“New areas of the game, new bosses, new weapons, new allies, and more development on the story. We hope to add more enjoyable combat as well to the final game where players will feel the excitement of playing as Holt.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“As of right now Chapter one of development is done and will have some tweaks to it as time goes on while other chapters are being worked on. As of right now, this is only the first chapter of a possible 10-20 chapter story.”

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

“As of right now the chapters will be released to the public for free but that may be subject to change. There might be a price increase over the course of the development.”

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

“We currently use our Discord server and the Steam forums as our primary ways to talk to our community. Players are welcome to suggest new features and modifications in our channels. A closed test-group of players have access to the latest builds of the game and work closely with the dev-team. We will continue to develop this process based on the needs and feedback of the community.”
