What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This collection of retro inspired games, have reached a stage of development. Despite lacking some of their intended features. Can be played to some level of enjoyment, by the gaming public. This will allow me to receive feedback on current state of build. Allowing me to refine game mechanics as I polish and add features / game assets.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I'd like to think that I should be able to implement all remaining game mechanics, features and assets within 12 months. If I can control expected feature creep, especially if I receive feedback and ideas from the gaming community.”

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

“The games will essentially stay the same as they are now. Just feature and asset complete.
