What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Trenches is a horror game where we focus on fear and psychological horror and we have so many planned futures but we wish to involve the community in the development as well. I will be taking serious feedback's and suggestions coming from our players and update the game based on their suggestions and feedbacks. We wanted to get the game into the hands of players through the development in order to make sure we make the scariest possible journey to the players.

We have so many planned futures, such as changing environment, more randomized scares, new features and even CO-OP at a later date. The Early Access version is for those who are interested in supporting the project and are ready to accept the change of the balance within the game. Trenches is in Early Access for a reason. We are still shaping the experience into what we vision it to be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Early access is going to take few months or maybe a couple of years - however this may change depending on features that we will be adding in the game and how the game will progress through early access. Please note, this game is being developed only by one developer and I will try to do my best in this to get the game released early.”

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

“At the current moment, we wish to fix any bugs in the game and then move on to upgrading the game. We have so many planned futures, such as changing environment, more scares, new features and even CO-OP at a later date. We have many plans to make the game uniquely scary, such as random scary encounter each time you play the game and many more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Status of Early Access for now contains the game in a 'almost' ready-state, but there may still be some bugs, optimizations and a couple of things to fix. The game can be played from start to finish but you can encounter bugs, glitches and such. We have many more updates that we wish to add if we have the support we need.”

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

“The price will not be changed during this early access however the price may increase in the final release.”

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

“We are open to suggestions for the game and also on our Steam forums where we will be involving the community there.”
