What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Even at this early stage, we think that SQUIDS FROM SPACE is pretty fun and ready for players to start giving us feedback. Rather than just continuing to work on it behind closed doors, we want to get players playing and letting us know what they like, what they'd like to see in the future, and what they'd like to see tweaked and changed.

Fun Bits is a small 6-person team, and a big advantage of that is that we can be very responsive to feedback from our community. Join our Discord server (https://discord.gg/squidsfromspace) to give us feedback and participate in shaping the game as we truck onwards towards launch day!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“SQUIDS FROM SPACE will be in Early Access for at least a year, but due to our small team size it will likely be longer than that before we're ready for a full release. However, we are planning to update the game with bugfixes, new features, updated visuals, and similar upgrades every 1-2 months, so make sure to check back if you haven't played in a while!”

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

“The first Early Access release version has one map, a core set of about 15 weapons and vehicles, no character customization options, and visuals that we do not consider to be final art.

The launch version is planned to have at least five maps, additional weapons and vehicles, a robust character customization system, customizable game modes, and improved visuals. The exact features and content will be in the launch version will depend on what players indicate they want to see in the game via player feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The first Early Access release is considered to be our first "vertical slice" Alpha version. That means we consider the gameplay and core features to be playable and fun. Visuals are not final, some non-core features are not yet implemented, and there is a lot of content that we would like to add. By the time you read this, we'll probably have added much more!”

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

“SQUIDS FROM SPACE is free to play, but if you participate in the game during Early Access you'll receive special rewards when we launch!”

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