What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're excited to welcome you on board of our journey, and believe that your feedback during the Early Access Phase will allow us to make sure the game is fun, add more contents and polish it up to the maximum of its potential.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“"Salty Hounds" is scheduled to come out of Early Access sometime in the second half of 2023. Depending on how quickly we can respond to the feedback we receive during Early Access, we may adjust the timeline slightly. However, the core system and a lot of contents are already in place, so it's unlikely we'll deviate from our schedule.”

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

“The first Early Access build, you can only progress your relationship with the bachelors to a certain level. This limit will be gradually removed through updates throughout the Early Access phase.

Over the course of Early Access, we plan to add in more contents like mini games, an item collecting system, more phone call events, more illusts and text messages, additional story bits, dating contents and endings.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Meet up with five gorgeous guys, progressing from strangers to friends, and from friends to lovers. As your relationship deepens, you will see them react differently when you bump into them, and saying different things when you talk them up.
Create your own romantic adventure in a bustling open-world metropolis.”

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

“We plan to increase the price when we leave Early Access and release the 1.0 version of the game.”

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

“We will be collecting user feedback through the official forum of Steam for Salty Hounds. We encourage you to post bug reports and suggestions for the game here.”
