What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Heathen Engineering is a small studio and Terran is an ambitious project which makes use of emerging technologies. Quality of content and stability of performance are the key deliverables the Heathen team wants to bring to you - the gamer.

The Terran Early Access effort is meant to provide a channel for those gamers most excited for the game and who want to contribute to its final development and testing phases.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Terran entered Early Access March of 2016 with a 3-phase plan. The project is now in its 3rd and final phase and is expected for full release this year. The Terran Roadmap and News sites are the best place to find up-to-date information such as more specific project completion estimates.”

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

“Early Access feedback does have a meaningful impact on the direction the development team takes and has already evolved the project beyond its initial form. Features currently present will undoubtedly be iterated on and refined during Early Access and additions, changes, etc. will be heard and considered by the team however we do not expect any notable deviation from the current structure.

The current phase of Early Access (phase 3) is the process of bringing Terran to full release. That is additional content, bug fixes and performance optimizations as well as quality of service improvements e.g. guides, translations, usability features, etc.. The current mechanical structure of the game however is indicative of the intended ‘full release’ version.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Terran has entered Phase 3 of the Early Access plan and has recently undergone major updates. All core features of the game are implemented and being iterated on to improve quality, stability and performance while we expand available content such as ships, progression benefits, combat environments and more. Some placeholder content and debugging hooks are still in place though we are in the process of removing these with each patch released.”

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

“No - we do not intend to change the price due to change in the Early Access status of the game.”

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

“Phase 1 & 2 community efforts provided valuable feedback but also had its short comings. Heathen Engineering is dedicated to this project and the community that is developing around it. We are actively looking to improve our community support and currently have presence on Facebook, Twitter, IndieDB and of course Steam as well as News and Comment support on the main Terran site.

The Trello roadmap and Terran home page http://www.youareterran.com provide an in-depth view of the game, the state of development and the development team working to build it all while the Steam Community Hub serves as Terran’s official community home.”
