What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Missing Stars has a lot of story-driven content that takes a long time to write for. We want to show what we have already completed to Steam users so that they can access our huge story sooner.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate that our team will be in another 2-3 years of Early Access as we continue to write and refine the story for Missing Stars. We have several routes planned, each with several hours of additional content.”

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

“We plan to expand upon the story we've made with Missing Stars so far. Each of the planned character routes has additional story to be added to over time. In addition, we plan to create new art and music assets for those routes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“As of now, this Early Access version is fully playable with our first act complete. We also have a gallery for viewing in-game graphics and a music player for our original soundtrack.”

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

“The price of Missing Stars will not change when we leave Early Access.”

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

“We want to get feedback on our visual novel, whether that be in terms of writing quality, art, or bugs/defects that impact a player's enjoyment of Missing Stars.

Users can give feedback on our Discord server, or email us at somnova.ms@gmail.com with the subject line "Missing Stars Feedback".”
