What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Dr. Spacezoo intends to use Early Access to allow players to help refine the final form of the game via feedback and suggestions. Also, Early Access will be used to provide a larger compatibility test to ensure Dr. Spacezoo works on as many Windows, OS X, Linux and Steam OS machines as possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Dr. Spacezoo has been in active development for about 1.5 years now, and is planned to be fully finished by the end of the year. Here's the most up-to-date change-log:”

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

“The full version will be a highly polished version of the current version including additional refinements to the procedural generation, weapons and power-ups, enemies and bosses, story, and Steam integration.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Dr. Spacezoo is fully playable in both Story, Action, and Boss Rush modes. Dr. Spacezoo is also VERY re-playable thanks to the procedural level generation. I've been playing Dr. Spacezoo for 1000s of hours and am still pleasantly surprised by the procedural level generation.”

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

“Dr. Spacezoo will slowly increase in price as more features are added and the game becomes more polished. Expect a price bump every minor version up to the final release. Also, the game will NOT be placed on sale during Early Access.”

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

“I love engaging with players and hearing their feedback and suggestions on how to make Dr. Spacezoo even better!”
