What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Steam Early Access is an excellent opportunity for us to begin the next stage of development for Tower Unite.

There are still a lot of features we plan to implement, and releasing on Early Access will allow us to exceed the expectations of our fans and our community.

We want to ensure our community is part of our development throughout the process. Our game is unique due to it's diverse, varying gameplay. We want to expand the game based on feedback in ways that we could never imagine on our own.

Early Access allows us to realize our dream game. We want to create the best possible experience for a wide audience, and we can't do that alone. We will use Early Access to address concerns, gather additional data from gameplay experiences, and balance the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to leave Early Access in 2019.”

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

“We plan to ship with more Game Worlds, all the various plaza activities, a fully functional multi-player arcade, additional player avatar customization, ocean exploration, more advanced condo customization tools, additional Workshop support, and the features we promised our backers. We also want to ship the game on Mac OS X and Linux.”

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

“The price will not change during early access.”

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

“Since it's inception, Tower Unite has been all about the players.
By listening to our community, we have been able to build a game that has broad appeal
across multiple genres.
We are constantly welcoming new people into our diverse community to contribute ideas to the game.
If we find ideas that our players will enjoy, we start developing those concepts into new features for Tower Unite.

Our game has always depended on it's fans, they crowdfunded us to bring this to life.
In return, we will be constantly updating the game with new features, and bug fixes.

We also have live streams and weekly developer logs with production updates from the developers.

Weekly Dev Log for June 14th, 2019

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for June 14th, 2019, detailing all the changes that have happened since June 7th, 2019. Note: Devs that don't appear in the weekly log are not necessarily away or not doing work, but may be working on things currently not announced or backend work that doesn't need to be detailed.

Arcade Progress
Now that fishing is in a stable state, our main focus has moved to Arcade.

Earlier today, we created a massive post detailing all the machines we plan on having in the arcade, which you can find here. We suggest you check that out if you want to see what each arcade game will be!

This week, a new button component system for all the buttons in the arcade was completed. macdguy completed all of the base code for the arcade machine gameplay, and has been working with Gloves to complete the animation system. In addition, the unit cost and ticket base code, along with the multiplayer handler for Galaxy Police was finished. macdguy also completed the physics system for the arcade games, and completed pretty much of all of the gameplay code for Dizzy and Super Hoopers.

Johanna and Wheezwer continued working on the arcade machine models and artwork. Wheezwer finished the artwork for the claw game "Pluck-a-pal", and started working on the artwork for the ball attack game, "Avalanche". Johanna completed the model for the ball toss game, "Bird Feeder", along with the "Piano" arcade game. Johanna also started working on a yet to be named ball toss game, and added a second floor to the arcade, which will contain more games.

Weekly Dev Log for June 7th, 2019

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for June 7th, 2019, detailing all the changes that have happened since May 20th, 2019.

We normally post our Weekly Dev Logs exclusively on our forums, but we're going to start posting them on Steam as well!

Note: Devs that don't appear in the weekly log are not necessarily away or not doing work, but may be working on things currently not announced or backend work that doesn't need to be detailed.

Fishing Update and Hotfix
Last week, we released the Fishing update, which introduced the long awaited Fishing minigame playable in the Plaza, with over 100 fish and items to obtain. You can read about the update's release here.

Yesterday, we released a small hotfix to fix some issues that were introduced with the Fishing update, which you can read about here.

New Artist
We hired a new artist for the summer, Wheezwer. She'll be working on the cabinet artwork and sprites for the Arcade.

Arcade Work and Art
Now that Fishing is released, our focus has turned onto the Arcade.

Johanna has started working on a new ring toss machine and a new ball toss machine, as well as working on the prize redemption desk.

Wheezwer completed work on the cabinet art for Whirl-A-Fish, and started working on the cabinet art for the claw machine.

Gloves continued working on player animations for the Arcade, this week focusing on the animations for the Wack-a-mole machine.

macdguy started working on the arcade game base (that handles all the machines gameplay code), mechanisms to debug the player animations, as well as starting work on the basic game loop and networking of game events.
