What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I've been working on Project Arrhythmia for about 6 years (since high school as a hobby). I still love working on the game and am 100% committed to seeing it through. I release regular updates for bugs and features submitted by the community and am working on the story mode constantly. That being said this would all move faster if I had more testers and people constantly playing the game which is why I'm pursuing early access, so I can work together to make the game ya'll want to play.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“My hope is the game will leave early access roughly once the story mode launches. I've been making good progress with and hope to share more on the story mode soon.”

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

“The full version is planned to have a completed "Story Mode". It will contain around 20 levels and full visual novel style cutscenes with puzzles and other elements.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • Arcade Mode: A fun way to play user-made levels with your friends in up to 4 player Local Co-Op.
  • Level editor: A robust and easy-to-pick-up level editor for user-created content built into the game.
  • Steam Workshop: Full integration with Arcade Mode and the game's Level Editor to allow easy uploading and downloading of user-made levels.

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

“I plan to gradually raise the price as I ship new content and features.”

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

“The community has already been a massive help when refining the editor and the overall gameplay. I make sure to have a constant feedback loop to help me get features out that the community wants and fix the issues they have. You can join the majority of the community on the game's official Discord.”
