What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is the key to Frontier's development- we want to work as closely as possible with the community as we progress further into the creation of the game to make sure that we provide the features you want to see the most. We'll be talking to our fans on a one-to-one basis to find out exactly what they want to have added, and our favourite/the most popular options will be brought in future updates. Because we're an indie studio, Early Access means we won't have to spend huge amounts of money to develop the whole game before showing it to anybody- with Early Access, it takes the financial issues away and will subsidise development costs (although we can still continue development in-house in the case that we don't sell many units to start with, more money just means faster development).”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“At this stage it is very hard to say how long we will be in the Early Access phase, although it's safe to say that we plan on continuing development for a long time. Frontier is a hugely ambitious concept and will undoubtedly take us some time to build, but that doesn't mean it's going to be months before it is ready to play. The first version contains a whole range of features, which we're going to build on extensively.”

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

“The full release will eventually comprise all of our hard work, with features ranging from tobacco farming and hand-rolled cigarettes to crime and destroying or planting evidence. There are countless unique features in the future of Frontier- drinking contests, duelling, crop and cattle farming, easter eggs and even gold panning, there will be something for almost any gamer to enjoy. We have already designed the most diverse simulation of the Wild West ever imagined- now we just have to finish building it!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version is a stable and graphically impressive build which is the basis of future development. To summarise, we currently offer;

  • Core building system with over 40 different building objects
  • Resource gathering with tree chopping, mining and harvestable items
  • Early wildlife system with 6 types of animal for you to hunt (or be hunted by)
  • Basic combat mechanics (more weapons coming very soon)
  • Butchery- skin and eat any animals you kill
  • Early narcotics system- a personal hip flask with realistic drunk effects, wild marijuana plants and hallucinogenic species growing around the world
  • Base terrain- our first map, painstakingly handcrafted to impress

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

“Our intentions are to increase the price as Frontier grows, so the earlier you join us, the more money you'll save! We don't have any exact pricing plans at this stage, but we want the price to reflect our progress as the game world grows and develops.”

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

“We already have extensive plans for where the game is going next, but most importantly, we will be changing these plans based on community feedback. We are going to be working with the community throughout development- none of that dead post nonsense which the devs never read. The entire team will be actively engaging with all of our fans to make sure that there is something for everybody in the game. Come and join us in the Community Hub to meet the team!”

About This Game

The Wild West...

The turning point of all Western civilisation, the dawn of an era- for the first time in decades people could leave their hard lives all over the world with the hopes of becoming rich beyond their wildest dreams.

Do you want to make money out of the gold rush? Or do you have other plans in mind? No matter! Whatever you want to do, you will be able to do in Frontier! Currently in Early Access, we have huge plans for development and a dedicated team who is ready to bring you a steady stream of updates so you're always finding new features to discover. With everything from tobacco farming and cigarette rolling to crime fighting and destroying evidence in the works, we are working towards creating the most diverse simulation of the frontier movement ever imagined for gamers to experience!

But what's it all about?


Frontier is whatever you want it to be. The current version already brings you a robust building system, resource gathering, stunning graphics with PBR textures, a huge map (which is tiny in comparison to the final world we're constructing), 6 types of animal to hunt, alcohol to keep you entertained on your travels, wild hallucinogenic plants to harvest and consume, a butchery system so you can skin dead animals, plus a beautiful and dynamic weather simulation.

But this is only the beginning.

Frontier is in it's infancy. Over the next few months, the game will grow to include countless new features, including intelligent NPCs to populate your cities, a detailed economic simulation, and an enormous and lore-rich environment, just to name a tiny amount of what we have planned.

Our designs revolve around player freedom. We want to put the world in your hands, giving you complete control over how you live your life in the Wild West. Create settlements and manage your people, become a cattle baron and make your fortune, compete in drinking contests in one of your own saloons, trade goods, fight outlaws, rob banks and engage in the hundreds of activities we have planned!

Upcoming Features


You're probably wondering exactly what we have in store for you. Well look no further, here is a brief summary of some of our more unique future updates. This list is not comprehensive, and is subject to change (with the guidance of the Steam community, although we fully intend to include everything on this list);

  • NPCs- A wide range of intelligent characters to settle your towns, spend money in your shops and interact with you throughout the world
  • An authentic arsenal stocked with period-correct weaponry, carrying everything from Winchesters to Gatling guns
  • Many more blocks for our building system, allowing you to create expensive, upscale mansions and cozy campsites
  • Enormous, lore-rich map system for you to explore, with different areas bringing their own environments and wildlife
  • Diverse activities system, bringing you everything from drinking contests and shooting challenges to bar brawls and bounty hunting
  • Indepth "Vice" System- New drugs to harvest and create, illegal activities to take part in for quick cash, and even poker tournaments

Community Involvement


Community involvement is going to be key to the development of Frontier. We want to know exactly what you like and don't like, and exactly what you want to see brought to the game in future updates. The team will be talking to players to hear their opinions and suggestions, and we openly welcome you to come and talk to us on the discussions forums or in our official Steam group.
