What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“With the help of our community, we plan to craft a truly incredible game experience by taking feedback and opinions to heart. The early access stage of Calling Home allows us to work together with our players to create a game truly unique to them.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“With passion and community behind us, we expect our full release to take around two-three years. However, we do not want to promise anything specific and set any expectations for our players too early on in the process. While we work hard on creating a spectacular game experience, we want to take our time to make Calling Home the very best it can be!”

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

“With the full release, we want to provide Calling Home with a variety of different planet traits, such as biomes, weather, flora&fauna, world events, etc.. Our main goal with the full release is to also improve crafting, automatization and a full story mode.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Though we're still early in development, we've already implemented the core game mechanics and flow. This includes exploring procedurally generated planets, crafting, building, automization and the core system for creating stories. We plan to enhance and add to each core feature throughout development and keep you continuously updated.”

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

“As the scope of the game grows, we also plan to increase its price gradually.”

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

“Your ideas, suggestions, and feedback from our Discord Server or other sources are greatly appreciated! We aim to make Calling Home an unforgettable experience, both for you and us, and for this, we firmly believe that player input is central to this mission. During development, private betas will be offered to those that provide consistent feedback, for you to directly influence the game's future.”
