What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I've been focusing on creating solid gameplay, many different cards, and game balance. However, my end goal is to have even more features and content while enhancing the game's balance and mechanics based on player feedback. I want to release the game to Early Access now to get even more feedback from players so I can build the best game possible!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I'm planning on an Early Access period lasting for about six months, with a full release coming up in Q4 of 2023.”

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

“Here's some of the planned features releasing during Early Access:
- Lots of general game polish and balancing
- Card mutations (modify and upgrade cards)
- Bosses and new enemies
- More Legend Cards and other late-game powerful rare cards
- Improved Operations and Sector Maps
- 2 New Playable Characters
- More Languages (Localisation)
- Controller / Steam Deck support
- Leaderboards and More Game Modes”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access will be a full v1 release of the game that can stand on its own. Early Access offers an opportunity to further enhance the game to get it closer in quality and quantity of content to the more established deckbuilders out there. Everything that players love and expect from DINO MERCS will keep improving!

See the About This Game section for a complete description of the game's current state.”

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

“We are planning to raise a price once during Early Access and also on the full release. The full price will be about 1.5 to 2 times the price of the first Early Access price.”

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

“Having a larger player base playing and getting lots of feedback from a broader audience on the game before the full release will help take the game's replayability to the next level, which we think will be critical for the longer-term success of the game. I actively discuss the game with players on Steam/Discord/Twitter and more, and will take all constructive feedback into consideration!”
