What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Desktop Mars is a game displayed as wallpaper that is constantly being researched and improved. The technology used does not exist in other games. User support will allow us to complete this project to improve the gameplay and wallpaper system.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We have planned beta tests and development phases for Desktop Mars. The final version should be available 4 months after the first publication. It all depends on how many features we include.”

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

“The final version will contain numerous improvements in mechanics and game balance. We want to add tunnels to connect the buildings We have to adjust levels to upgrade the buildings. Then the Steam Achievements will be added. The game menu and other elements will probably change for the better. Maybe we will be able to adjust day and night cycles to the real from Mars. We also want to add a tutorial that will tell players what to pay attention to. We want to show all of this in many languages.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Desktop Mars is now a playable game with lots of features and gameplay. You can use most of the tools and buildings. Some of the buildings will earn resources to fund bigger buildings that will increase the new population. The current state of the game allows you to check most of all the mechanisms, features. Probably for now the balance is not perfect but with support, we will adjust it to keep the game relaxing but demanding.”

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

“When the game is fully polished, its price will be only slightly increased. Thanks to this, people who trusted us and bought the game earlier will be able to enjoy the full content at a slightly lower price.”

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

“Our community is bigger every day.

We are active on the Steam store, on Discord and other social media, where our users can contact us in case of problems and with new interesting ideas for the development of the game.

We have prepared special people who are responsible for contact with players and advising them when necessary. We respond to every contact as quickly as possible.”
