What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is going to be released as Early Access but we don’t want you to think that this means Pile Up! will be an unfinished game at release. We are trying to give you a fully developed experience. So, why are we releasing the game as early access then? Well, there are a couple of reasons for this.

Content: Even though the early access contains a full gameplay loop it still misses some content that we want to add to the final version. An example? Islands! We want to add different and unique islands to the game as the game develops in Early Access. The main reason being that we can polish those islands more and deliver better gameplay for them. I need to add, we added one more island for the Early Access so you can experience how those will be.

Balance: We are a team of 5 so the testing we can do is limited. To compensate for this we are starting a closed beta test (more information is below) and releasing the game as early access so we can see more people playing the game and finding broken combos.

Technical Stuff: Important stuff like leaderboards can be very challenging to code and we have lots to code. Also having a leaderboard before we are happy with the game’s balance can be problematic.

Pricing: We want Pile Up! to be affordable to anyone. We want to thank our early access players in a way too. So, we will release the game with a discount for the first week and the game’s overall early access price will be cheaper than the full release. So be quick! We will post another announcement before the release informing you of the exact price so keep an eye open.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Between 8-10 months. (Apx.)”

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

“There will be more gameplay content (like more islands, buildings and game modes etc.), new systems (photo mode, leaderboard, etc.) and improvements based on player feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current game version is have all the features listed in the "About This" section are already implemented.”

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

“Price will remain the same during early access, however there might be a slight incerease after full release.”

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

“We have a Discord server for the game, so we plan to make events and surveys there which will result with people being involved in the dev process.”
