What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Raidho Games consists of a small team of five game developers. Early Access allows the team to further develop the game while you get to be in on the journey. As an added bonus, we will be able to receive feedback from the players while developing the game, which in return will help us make fixes and changes for a better game experience. There will be many updates to the game during early access which will add more features and content.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Early access is estimated to end in 2026. This is when the full version of the game should be finished.”

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

“At the very start of early access, the game will have a short list of features. The players will be able to create their own horses and ride around in a limited environment with an outside and inside riding arena. Show jumping will be available from early access launch where the players can ride through obstacle courses with their horses. The multiplayer feature will be available where players can join or host servers with friends.

For the full game, we have a long list of features and content that will be added during early access up until the full release. This includes new horse breeds, other disciplines such as cross country and dressage, horse care and stable management, breeding and genetics, trail riding, map exploration, quests, and more. More information about planned features can be found on our website.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“From the very first early access version, players can create their horses, ride around the different arenas, and do show jumping with their horses. With multiplayer, players can join or host instances to play together. Please see the game description on the Store Page for the list of currently available features.”

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

“After we leave the early access period, the price of Astride will be raised in accordance with the amount of features and content.”

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

“Astride has a dedicated Discord community server where we post work in progress of the game five times a week, Monday through Friday. We have surveys, suggestions and ideas channels and engage the community to brainstorm with us.”
