What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Barren Roads is a game made for the community. Most of the ideas for Barren Roads were based on feedback from the community.

We plan to create new content, fix issues, and introduce gameplay inspired by the suggestions of the followers for Barren Roads.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate we can get a solid release this year by gathering information from gamers and active participants in the community.”

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

“The full version will be battle tested by gamers and the community. All filled with their input. A completely finished version will have you matching wits against the best of the Steam, iOS, and Android communities.

Remember, Barren Roads was designed not only to enjoy on your desktop, but also to enjoy on the go with a fully compatible cross platform play coming as well.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Barren Roads is fully functional with vehicles, fort building, item drops, mutant enemies, and raiders. Also, it has a very open multiplayer experience.

Its quite buggy and filled with placeholders. Some of the bugs are somewhat entertaining as cars self destruct randomly, mount points are off and sometimes animations play way off.

However, enjoy Barren Roads the way you want. We didn't follow another game. We created our own based on what gamers want. Single player, LAN, or online experience. The choice is yours.”

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

“More polished versions of Barren Roads will increase over time which may affect pricing.”

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

“Community is key when it comes to making games. Barren Roads is no different. Sometimes our vision of what is entertaining isn't what gamers want. We do our best to implement all the great feedback and ideas from players while incorporating our own. Many of the request from players; if we reasonable and possible, we just add. Its there, if you want to use it.”
