What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This game is a love letter to things we loved growing up: 90's cyberpunk, old school FPS games, cult movies and body horror.

We want Voltage High Society to be the best game possible for players who enjoy cyberpunk atmosphere, body horror, metroidvanias and retro aesthetics. In order to achieve this we need all the feedback we can get.

After the first release, the first important step is to address feedback & take a moment to patch things up. Then we're off to the next area, the next weapon/ability, and the next monsters. some of these are "in-game" already, but hidden, for they're a bit buggy or not good enough.

There's some ideas that expand the initial punching & taser gameplay, and some cool locations we really want to dig into.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to be leaving EA in 10-14 months time from initial release. At the earliest in the Q2/2023.”

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

“In the initial Early Access version we are going to have one map sector, with linear gameplay of 4 different monster types and some upgrades the player can gather.

During EA development we are going to add four more (larger) sectors and expand the initial area. These sectors intertwine through the abilities & weapons you find, include new monsters, upgrades, and boss fights. You can get the overall look from the Early Access Roadmap below.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All the basic functionalities listed in the "About this game" section are implemented. There is (carefully estimated) about 30-60 mins of gameplay including one weapon and a boss fight at the end, which marks the exit point of the first level in the game.

There are only a few different monster types in the game at the moment, but more are on the way. You can get the idea of the overall atmosphere and game mechanics. All of the initial content will be expanded & polished as the development of the game goes forward.”

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

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

“Definitely! We are inviting people to discuss and even vote for next features to our Discord channel. And naturally we are active on Community Hub.”
