What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access affords us the ability to iterate on the game with lots of feedback from the Steam community, which we feel is super valuable for balance and tuning in this genre.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately 12-18 months.”

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

“We plan to add additional features and content with the feedback of the community, including additional modes of play, new "worlds", and additional unlockable content that may include pilots, ships, weapons, mods, and items.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game has a strong core that has benefited from a lengthy public demo/beta period. It has three worlds, several weapons, ships, and pilots, as well as achievements and a robust set of player options and meta progression. We have identified a need for more depth and variety in the upgrades and world generation, and this is our focus now.”

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

“We will likely raise the price slightly when we leave early access.”

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

“We invite feedback via Steam forums, our Discord, and an in-game feedback form. We review this feedback frequently and it helps guide our decision-making process.”
