What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Alien Colosseum is an ambitious project developed by one person. I admit, I had little developing experience when I started this project almost 2 years ago. However, I believe this is a game that combines many elements from different genres to create a new experience for players to enjoy. Since I will be trying new gameplay elements not commonly seen combined in one game, I believe it will be important to have player feedback on which features are most enjoyable and allow input on what I will add next.

Additionally, this game involves many stats for the player to improve and resources to gain. Therefore, it is difficult to test all the possible combinations of weapons, armors, and classes against the wide variety of enemies on my own. So, especially in the beginning I will need help from the community to keep the game balanced and fun.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It should take 10 to 12 months to finish implementing the base features and reach the point of what I envisioned the final product to be. This can change with community feedback.”

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

“I will improve and expand the features currently in place or planned, focusing on what the community wants.
This means:
  • More weapons and armor pieces to equip
  • New skills and abilities to use in combat
  • More Ludus upgrades to train fighters in different ways
  • Different classes that allow your fighter to use different combinations of weapons and skills
  • Expand the main story and lore behind the planet and colosseum
  • Interact with other inhabitants of the planet
  • Add more fighting animations and slash particles to weapons
  • Introduce adventure missions where the player chooses a fighter to explore an area and receive rewards
    • This gameplay will be in the form of dungeon exploration found in many RPG’s
  • Allow the player to recruit fighters from other species that will have unique skills and classes
  • Add different arenas to fight in
  • Increase options for customizing Ludus manager who represents the player
  • Steam Workshop support and achievements

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently I have implemented many of the base features intended for final release, such as…
  • Three different weapons and armor from each type
  • Humans are playable fighters
  • Three starting classes in place
  • Introduction to story but mainly focused on gameplay currently
  • Over a dozen different skills
  • Multiple resource types to manage and affect fighter training by purchasing upgrades
  • Change the Ludus manager’s name, gender (body parts only, pronouns are not used) and skin color.
  • Recruit and train up to three different fighters at one time

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

“Yes, currently the price will be lower than the final product to reward those who are willing to support the project while developing and to reflect the value of what is available when purchased.”

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

“Feedback will allow me to understand what the community wants from this project and what they are currently enjoying or having problems with. The main source of communication will be through the Steam community posts and ideally some form of in game voting system for new features. I plan on creating more social platforms for my company and game but currently we only have a website which you can contact me on. I will change this as more platforms are added.”
