What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This project has been close to my heart for a long time now. I want it to be perfect and for that we would need another year or two to have a result approaching what I really want for this game. It will not be perfect the day of its released in early access but we want to improve Retrowave World while taking into account your feedback and suggestions. It also allows you to support the game and watch it grow over time.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to release the game in final version at the end of 2024.”

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

“Honestly, we plan to add a lot of things to the game. New worlds, new cars, new characters, more music, new arcade games and many other things that the community may suggest or ideas that we would have in the future.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“I think that the day of its release in Early Access the game will be 30 or 40% of its final release. In other words, we still have work to do. We can't deny it, the game has quite a few bugs, but we're counting on you to help us find and report them.
All info about the status and features of the current game is in the "About this game" section of the store page.”

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

“The price of the game will remain fixed until the final release, there is a possibility that the price will increase at the end of early access.”

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

“I think we can agree that the Synthwave/Retrowave/Vaporwave community is clearly one of the best. We are a nostalgic community, for some of their childhood, for others of the good old days and for some, a time they have never known. We are counting on you to help us grow this project with the kindness that this community has always shown. You can give us your suggestions for example on the Steam community hub, or on Discord, youtube, instagram etc...”
