What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Arksync has been a labor of love, developed and funded over six years mostly by myself. My goal is to share the game's progress with the community, and to gather valuable feedback that will help shape its future. While the game already offers significant value, Early Access lets us improve the game with player support and input. With the additional time and community engagement, we will elevate Arksync from a great game to an incredible one.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Arksync will remain in Early Access until it's 3 Episodes are complete. I estimate each Episode will take 4-5 months to develop, but rest assured I plan to provide regular updates to visuals, gameplay, new features, and bug fixes along the way.”

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

“The plan is to release 3 Episodes that ultimately complete the game's story and gameplay features. A local co-op feature is planned and in development as well. Please note the plan may change over time, but I aim to deliver ongoing development. Also your save data will carry over between updates.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“I'm offering an experience you'll immerse yourself in during Early Access, a blast worth your enthusiasm. Welcome to Episode 1, the first third of the game. This includes 2 story levels, a tutorial level, 3 mission levels, 8 enemy types, 5 unique boss fights, 6 weapons, and 5 utilities. It also features weapon modification, the Locker for storing equipment, the Depot for purchasing and selling equipment, random enemy encounters, event Lockdowns with 3 random mini game types, and many hidden secrets to find along the way. Roughly 5 hour completion time, and replayable by design.”

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

“Yes. The price will increase after Episode 2, and again after Episode 3 when it leaves Early Access. This will give you the opportunity to not only get the game at a lower price, but become a much appreciated founding part of the game's development.”

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

“I value the community's input and actively encourage feedback through several channels:

- Steam Community Forum (https://steamcommunity.com/app/1828800/discussions)
- Discord (https://discord.gg/ENgvnzbvgu)

These communities have already helped improve the game in many ways, and this would be impossible to do without them. Your input shapes the game, and together we'll bring the vision of Arksync to fruition!”

About This Game

🔻DIRECTIVE: You, an Assault Android, have been hijacked, reprogrammed by a small toy bear who now rides on your shoulder. With him explore the Trash Moon, Deimos. Enter and secure it's most dangerous locations, each step drawing you closer to finding the Encryption Disks (E-Disks) needed to access restrict areas of the Moon. Return the toy bear home.



🔻COMBAT: This moon is under strict lockdown and enforced by amped drones, and merciless mechs patrolling unknown corridors. What's left of humanity has been whittled down to unrecognizable entities, gathered in hordes, lying in the darkness feeding on uninfected matter. The conflicts that transpire aren't limited to surviving ambushes, but hacking data terminals, quarantining rift leaks, and outlasting spreading Nanocite. Don't worry, you're designed for confrontation, and equipped with a capable movement system. Master your Jump and Dodge Thrusters, and hold your reflexes relentless. Move, and keep moving.



🔻DEATH: You've been connected to a dedicated Reboot Terminal, your home base. When your lives deplete, you will lose all carried resources including credits, only then will you be rebuilt at the Reboot Terminal.

🔻STATAGY: At your disposal is an arsenal of weapons and utilities. Discover unique combinations and strategy between them all. Utilities offer a wide range of approach; Proximity Mines, Gun Buddies, and Bubble Barriers, to name a few types, should be used with maximum efficiency.



Not all weapons are created equal as modifying them gains an offensive advantage, and no Mod Schematic is ever the same. You Assault Androids are all the same, try not to get too attached to your armaments; you'll lose them if you're destroyed.



Check your local Depot, and spend Credits to resupply on armaments. Prepare to explore the moon not only by purchasing Ammo, Shield Cells, or Extra Lives, but access your locker system to retrieve or store the right weapons and utilities for the job.

There's no telling what you'll find in the deepest parts of this wasted moon, but preparation, focus, and determination will be required. Good hunting, 3-192005.
