What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access allows us to exchange regularly with players, listening to ideas and constructive criticisms.
It also allows players to support development as we are a small team, it is really valuable to know if players like our game and what they like about it.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our estimate is around one year with a full launch in early 2023 depending on how development goes.”

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

“The initial Early Access launch features the base of the game. We will regularly add new content and features to increase replayability and complexity, with systems that will reward you for saving resources.
We will also add challenging achievements to put your skills to test. But we won’t forget people that want to chill and for example bring a photo mode to allow them to take the best shot. A roadmap will help you to track our next focus.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version of MOONS OF ARDAN already includes 4 population tiers based on 45+ resources to combine in production chains on a real-time simulated planetary system.
You will enjoy building and expanding your civilisation at your own pace, without any restrictions.”

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

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

“The players' feedback is important to the development process. We'll be listening and talking to the players here, in the Steam Discussions, as well as in a dedicated Discord channel. Private betas for development builds will be offered to those who offer us regular feedback and can directly influence the future of the game.”
