What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This title is a quirky game that uses sound as a hint for how to progress, and we need player feedback to better communicate how to play and enjoy it.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We envision a period of 2-4 months, but based on user feedback we would consider extending this further.”

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

“The feedback will enable us to offer a more multifarious experience with improved tutorials, a wider range of enemy types including bosses, additional tools, and a more engaging storyline.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The three main game modes are currently playable. "HARAE" - Fixed maps with more emphasis on solving specific puzzles. "MISOGI" - A more casual mode, focused on escaping from randomly generated maps. "GYOU" - A more hardcore random map mode with greater emphasis on survival. Within these modes most of the core gameplay elements are in place, including more than 40 items. However, the modes currently have a lot of commonalities. Going forward we hope to further develop each mode, making each one more distinct. Here are some examples.
HARAE: Insert stronger bosses to make the climax of each level more exciting.
MISOGI: Increase the number of unique rooms and enemies, to create greater variety in the dungeons.
GYOU: Incorporate unique items to heighten the survival elements of this mode.”

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

“Please note that price may be raised when the official version is released.”

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

“We plan to continually collect user feedback from the community. We'll look to comments for an idea of how well users are understanding the game, and for insights into the difficulty level and balance, and use those insights to make adjustments to the game. We also plan hold discussions with users around each regular update. Ideally, which mode is to be our main focus as we look toward release will be something that will be uncovered based on the wants and needs of the users.”
