What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game campaign is not ready yet. The gameplay and engine are mostly done, but I want to add more stages, more weapons, more heroes, more powerups and more missions. To do so, I need players feedback. To see what works and what not. If I should take the game to a more "crazy" bullet hell direction, or take it to a more tactical and measured playstyle.

My goal is to create a bullet hell that is extremely challenging to complete and takes lots of practice and different strategy for different stages. But to do so, I need more feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I plan to complete the entire game within a year, ie before the end of 2024. Hopefully a lot sooner.

Please keep in mind the game is already long and completely playable. It won't feel like a demo or anything half baked, except for the fact there's no final boss yet.”

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

“We plan to add more stages to the full version.

The existing stages will also change in the sense that new heroes and abilities will be available to complete them.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early access version is sable and already can be played as a full game, with hours of gameplay just for the missions (without completing all achievements).

The early access *first version* contains the following features (a lot have changed since, check out main description to see current state):

  • 6 Stages
  • 36 Missions
  • 13 Heroes
  • 26 Artifacts
  • 72+ Weapons / Skills
  • 40 Power Ups (total of 114 levels to unlock)
  • 50+ Monster Types
  • 232 Achievements

Every stage is made of 6 missions.
Every mission is a level that takes 10-20 minutes to complete, but usually takes a lot of failed attempts and deaths first..”

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, until final release. But generally speaking, its not planned to be an expensive game.”

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

“Balancing a game like this without feedback from the community is hard. I'd like to get as much feedback as possible and hope for active users on the reddit board to improve the game as I release updates for it.

Please feel free to give any feedback and contact me personally via email.”
