What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We’ve implemented the core aspects of the game, and we think it’s now time to get the community involved. We know our fans will help propel us forward and make Crashnauts one of the best shooters around.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The open beta will last at least 6 months with no determined end date. We hope the community to help us move forward as quickly as possible.”

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

“The full game will have more races and character models, more character customizations, more game modes, modifiers, more levels, and more guns!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Crashnauts Early Access is fully playable. Online play is in early development so we expect to see more bugs there and hope to receive feedback from the community to make online play rock solid. Local play is likely to be less buggy and a more solid experience at this time.”

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

“It's possible the game will increase in price once it exits Early Access. So we suggest you come and join us in Early Access and have fun at a great price!”

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

“We will keep players informed about our plans through in game notices and steam forums. We will do our best to read and consider every suggestion and bit of feedback we get. We plan to ask for feedback and set up polls as well. We are passionate about games, and know you are too!”
