What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Listening to you, the players, and dedicating development time based on your desires and suggestions, seems like a lot of fun to me. I'd like to see where we can take this game together.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“6 months to a year.”

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

“During early access, I'm planning on adding side quests, challenge modes, more crafting recipes and character customization options. But I'll be listening to you, the players, to what you want, and that will shape the full version.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core game is there, this is not a demo. All three chapters are playable and completable. Some of the lesser-taken branches are rough, some parts may be too easy, some parts may be too hard.

The achievements (the core "rogue-light" method of progression) are about 75% complete.

There are translations, but they are rough.”

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

“The price will increase slightly after early access.”

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

“I'll be polling on Discord to see what the players want. For example: I may ask you to vote on additional character customizations, vehicles, and/or weapons.

And I'll be listening to players and just hanging out. If you have a brilliant idea or deep concern, I want to hear it!

Besides Discord, you can reach me via the in-game feedback system, or on the Steam discussion boards.”

About This Game

Apocalypse Run! is an RPG that parodies the edutainment titles of the 1980s. When your party of four's vacation is cut short by the Apocalypse and Motorlord Dysentery starts hunting you for sport, all your hopes rest on three scientists who might just be able to reverse the Apocalypse and set things right.

Combat is turn-based with vehicles, and there are face-to-face encounters you can solve in multiple ways: through dialog, skill challenges (based on poker), or when all else fails, combat. It features voxel graphics that mimic 8-bit pixel art.

Features by the Numbers:

3 Chapters: Survival, Exploration, and a conclusion with multiple endings.
4 Factions: Punk Cops, Road Pirates, Super-Intelligent Pets, and Aliens.
1 Dynamic quest system, ensuring no two games will ever be the same.
7 Epic boss fights.
15 Character classes including: Pizza Driver, ER Doctor, and Telemarketer.
37 Vehicle types including: Cars, Motorcycles, Spacecraft, and Pirate Ships.
60+ Weapon types including: Spud Guns, Flaming Guitars, Ray Guns, and Homing Parrots.
30+ Crafting recipes, for making and improving weapons.
50+ Achievements to unlock character classes, weapons, and vehicles.
Character customization with 20 distinct heads/faces and 20 clothing styles.

A note on translations:

You might have noticed that the game lists interface translations for German, French, Spanish; but not subtitles. The game already has support for translations, but because it dynamically generates quests and the dialog along with them, it might be difficult for translators to figure out how to write them. I'm working on making this easy, and hopefully more languages will be added.
