What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is still in early development. We believe Early Access is a good way to figure out what the community likes and dislikes about the game while using any income to further develop the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The goal is to have the full game ready for early 2017. We plan to release a new Early Access version of the game each time a new level for the story and arcade mode is complete.”

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

“The plan at this point is to have 4 playable characters, 7 stages, 3 game modes including story, arcade and survival and 2 player co op gameplay. However we want the game to be shaped according to the community's input, feedback and support so many things could change during development.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“This first early access version of the game contains the first stage from story mode and 2 survival stages.”

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

“The price of the game will gradually rise as more content and features are added.”

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

“We hope Steam's Community will be very important in shaping the final game. Since the game is still in early development several areas, from gameplay to character and stage design will change according to feedback we get from the players.”

Following the rest of the main characters Connor has been updated to better reflect his stats. All of his animations and combos have been created again from scratch.

The way the super move bar fills up has been changed. It's now tied to a new combo counter, the longer the combo the faster it will fill up.

This update also contains many subtle gameplay/timing changes aimed at balancing the game. Killed enemies will no longer drop grenades in easy mode and the drop rate has been decreased in higher difficulties.

The ability to save button mappings is back again, please let me know if you encounter any issues.

Thank you!
