What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are launching in early access because we know how essential user experience and feedback are in game development. The game is simply not finished, and we still have a lot of different plans we want to implement in Desolation, and we thought the best way to do that is to hear feedback from the community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our goal for Desolation is to create a truly terrifying and seamless experience. It's difficult to predict exactly how long we will be in early access, but a rough estimate is approximately 6 months. We are dedicated to making the game as polished as possible.”

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

“Desolation currently features the main mission set in an abandoned city. We have plans to expand the game with multiple maps, unique features, enhanced AI, custom enemies, and increased replayability. We are committed to continuously improving the game in the future.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“"We've already added many distinct features to Desolation. The game is in early access as we have more maps and levels to add, but the one available map is complete and offers the full Desolation experience.”

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

“We plan to raise the price whenever we go out of early access, an estimated percentage would be a 30% increase.”

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

“We value the feedback of our players, which is why we have a dedicated discord server for Desolation where you can share your ideas and report any issues. To join, simply navigate to the "DISCORD SERVER" section below.”
