What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“With Magnetron our goal is to create a world alive and on the move, with the possibility to create everything you would ...giving to the player as much freedom as possible to avoid placing any obstacle.
To do this, we need the community feedback to understand how to better manage the new features planned and recommended.

The core base of Magnetron is already playable so you can test first hand the potential. Thanks to you, improvements would be much better if you give us a chance!

We think that early access is the best tool for dialogue with the community and to understand through exchanges "calm" or "onfire"(in the event that some features do not like it) what the community really thinks about us, as well as handle future features to implement.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The first answer is that we would like to say once the multiplayer feature has been completed.
The second is.. not forever! We know that is not an exact date, but we prefer to follow any advice about the community features and what really players want in their favorite worlds.
However the goal(with a good response to feedback) is ending early access stage approximately by the end of 2016.”

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

“Completed all the steps of the full version, talking about the technical aspect, it differs mainly for cleaning better graphics, better optimization of graphics pipeline and better framerate.

Talking about individual features which will be implemented:
-Multiplayer
-5 Different worlds to create its own land including a infinite map where the players can indulge in creating what they want with no geographical limitation.
-Different enemies for every game world
-Pets for the player to afford to move quickly in the game map.
-Increase players' power and defend their structures by enemies' attacks, both NPC and by other players.
-Create team with your friends to destroy other team buildings.
-Customization for main character, especially in view of the multiplayer feature.
-Veichle Materia: Move their buildings as if you were flying, as if they were a real vehicle with which to move in the game world.
-Tower defense system: turrets easily be anchored to their buildings to defend against enemys attacks.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version has all the basic features to allow a solid game and fun in singleplayer mode.
Here's a list:

-You Can use balls, blocks, cubes and pyramids in a 3D world without limits or constraints of a grid. Create whatever and wherever you want, the only limit is your imagination.
-There are also "Special items" that you can use to decorate your creations.
-Custom your creations by choosing the right color for each element.
-Many Pattern tileable are already available for use.

Types of MATERIAS which are used to move your buildings:
-Rotation: With this type of Materia you can create every kind of object rotation.
-Path: With this Materia, you can even move your creations in the world of game making him follow a particular path chosen by you.

-Mining: Explore and use trees, rocks to collect resources. Mine crystals to recover material to give life to your game world.
-Weapons: 4 weapons to play and battle enemies in different scenario and defend your buildings.

-Enemies: There are two kind of enemies in the map : one big and the other small.
Especially the first one is the most dangerous because can destroy their buildings.”

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

“We are still considering about the price, however we prefer to start with a reduced price for helping the public to understand our willingness to take the project forward and get to the objectives and last but not least, let those who first gave us confidence to have fun and entertain themselves.”

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

“We have several channels through which dialogue with the community.
But above all we keep an eye on the community hub in addition to doing research on what players ask us with the purpose of creating the game that we want and the players love.”
