What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I think the best way to develop Chess Survivors is with a constant feedback cycle with the players to ensure the game is fun, balanced, and has the depth player expect.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Upwards up a year, but current goal is to fully release by summer 2023”

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

  • Add more unique characters, abilities, and relics
  • Challenge progression via modifiers to runs for added difficulty
  • Explore new enemy types/variations on the chess based enemies
  • Community feedback for end game content like boss fights, challenge modes, or new game+
  • Mod support

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All of the core systems are added with 7 playable character, 13 abilities with many upgrade tiers, 6 enemy types, 35 relics, and all 3 acts.”

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

“Potentially priced higher at full launch depending on the depth of gameplay that has been added.”

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

“Mainly via the Chess Survivors Discord as well as via my YouTube videos which are used share progress updates and gather feedback.”
