What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I intend to release Spryward episodically in issues. Early access starts with issue #1 and will continue till the completion of the first story arch. Subsequent issues will launch via early access devlogs till completed. Early access is a great way for me as a solo developer to collect feedback on the game as I work on each issue and make improvements to the base game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Spryward will exit early access when the first story arch has concluded. Estimated completion somewhere between issues 6 - 8. I have no timeline for when this will be. I'm currently at issue 4 in progress. Spryward is my passion project. I work on issues here and there when I can.”

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

“Current early access build features Issues 1-4. The final build is planned to feature 6 to 8 issues. Current build doesn't feature every enemy, every sound effect, every character, all boss fights, or every motion comic scene.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current build features a completed Issue #1 - #4 In these issues play through, 10 levels, 12 cutscenes, and 4 boss fights. Collectable comic pages can be gathered to unlock scenes on the issue scene select screen. Issue select provides game modifiers god mode, infinite stamina, Slushy's slinging ability, infinite double jump. 8 enemy types are currently implemented. All of Spryward's powers are functional. Spryward can save civilians via rescue events. 3 rescue events are currently implemented, trapped under car rescue, dangling from tall height rescue, and trapped in rubble rescue.”

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

“Price will not change when Spryward leaves early access.”

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

“I read and keep spreadsheets of everything on the Steam forums. There are sub forums for bug reports & suggestions. With devlogs I intend to listen to community feedback to make appropriate changes / improvements. In devlogs I'll list changes made to the game and update you on my progress working on future issues.”

About This Game

The man who cures his city from a zombie virus struggles to retain the society he once knew. Dawning the superhero persona Spryward, Deshaun Martin takes on a corporate political infrastructure that suppresses society's revitalization. Face off against super powered villains, The Wizard, the Metroborg, and a mystical beast Broxa. In a post-civilization landscape can the city stronghold of Credell afford to put up with superhero antics?

Instead of turning into a zombie, infection gave Deshaun green skin and super powers. He can manipulate friction on an electromagnetic level. This allows him to slide and stick to any surface. He can halt his own connection to gravity for a short time causing immense heat. Along with friction based powers he has super strength, increased range of hearing, and durability. It's up to Spryward and his friends at the Adams Corporation to hold back the zombie virus and this new wave of villainy. This game takes place in the Apastron universe.
