What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are a very small team of only 2 developers and a handful of volunteers and Kickstarters working on PAC in our spare time. We all have regular lives, jobs, pets, kids and sometimes even wives. But, we would happily throw most of that away to make videogames full time. Until then, we move at the speed of life, which usually means progress is slow. We are continually learning from our own mistakes and fixing them as we go.

There is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for us. We aren't here to turn a quick profit off of asset flipping, loot boxing, achievement spamming, microtransactioning-ing, or any other modern day form of videogame debauchery. We are gamers at heart, and we do this because we love games. The satisfaction of actually completing, polishing and watching others enjoy our game will be more then enough compensation for the work involved.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our team has faced numerous crippling setbacks. Data losses, scammers, hackers, thefts, robberies, floods, wildfires, hurricanes, and even Jim Sterling. But, we haven't let any of that stop us. We continue to push development without any sign of success on the horizon, simply because we enjoy it. We plan on continuing Early Access development for as long as it takes before making any kind of retail release.

We raised $1,412 on Kickstarter with no preexisting capital investment, so utilizing assets and kits will be nessecary in moving the game forward.”

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

“We hope to discover and refine as many interesting systems, mechanics and artwork as we can come up with. We plan to be right here with you guys through the entire process, and much of the Alpha funding will be used to reinvigorate the product.

Developement is in a constant state of fluxuation based on community feedback. We are continuously tending to our flock to make sure they are having as much fun with the build as possible. This means things are always changing, and hopefully each time you try the game you will find something new and interesting that wasn't there before.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current build is heavily bugged, with many issues spanning many areas. Very few features, broken textures, glitches, broken GUI buttons, game breaking crashes.

We are embracing the discomfort of having an ugly baby by letting everyone critique it as early as we can. We don't take any feedback personaly, and only use it as an opportunity to improve our work. We have rebuilt the core game many times, looking for the perfect combination of mechanics and we believe we are coming very close to the right recipe.”

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

“Even in its most polished state, PAC will never exceed $20. Any and all future DLC will be released free of charge, and we will NEVER implement any kind of micro transactions, loot-boxes, or any other devious form of monetization.”

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

“We will be active on the community forums, taking community input and feedback to heart. We also have a discord channel you can join using this link here: https://discord.gg/UYBWTm

As with all games, there is the risk that problems could arise at any point during development. Such problems, should they occur, could delay the release. Rest assured, we will never abandon the project or leave it in an unfinished state. We have put too much of our time and passion into the project. If you trust us with your hard earned cash, we WILL deliver. Squashing bugs and fixing problems are all part of the daily grind for us. You'll be able to keep up to date on our forums, post your own ideas, and contact us directly at any time.”

About This Game

DISCLAIMER: THIS GAME IS IN EARLY ACCESS. PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE IT UNLESS YOU WANT TO ACTIVELY SUPPORT DEVELOPMENT AND ARE PREPARED TO HANDLE SERIOUS ISSUES AND POSSIBLE INTERRUPTIONS OF INTENDED GAMEPLAY FUNCTIONALITY.

Pump-Action Captain is a hardcore, indie, open world, action survival rogue-like FPS. This hardcore single player experience is meant to be played in small, short doses. Only the most dedicated players will survive long enough to uncover the deeply embedded secrets of your past. Think on your feet, adapt to survive, and walk away as the one and only Pump-Action Captain.

PAC is a very Early Access game, with only 2 developers behind the wheel. This means we're constantly changing and growing as we put more time into it. Sometimes those changes will improve the game, but usualy, they won't. Making mistakes and breaking things is an important part of the creative process, so we ask everyone to please be patient with us while we move forward with development.
