What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As a solo game developer, community support and feedback has a huge impact and means a lot to me! I believe Early Access is a great way to allow fans to play now while helping shape development. Your feedback will help me improve Final Days and make it a better game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Final Days has been in Early Access for just over 1½ years so far (as of June 2018). At this point in time, I tentatively plan to release Final Days around September 2018 (give or take a month).

For further details on my release plans for Final Days, please read this announcement.”

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

“I have been constantly working on Final Days and releasing updates regularly since it launched on Early Access. You can check out all the previous updates in the news section if you like.

The core mechanics are now done and are unlikely to change too much further for the full version. From here, the main updates will be related to finishing up some remaining must have features and further polishing.

For further details on my release plans for Final Days, please read this announcement.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Final Days is currently fully playable, very stable, and low in bugs. But don't take my word for it, try the free demo first so that you can see the current state yourself.

Please note though that the player base is currently quite small. So to enjoy multiplayer, you'll likely need to organise a session either with friends or with others in the community (via Discord or the forums).”

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

“The price will be raised when Final Days leaves Early Access.”

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

“I encourage you to share your feedback and suggestions with me. I want to know what you like, what you don't like, and what you'd like to see added or changed. I will strive to read and consider everything you post. Your feedback means a lot to me!

v0.30 update, new music, and release plans!

The v0.30 update is now out, and I'm excited to announce that it contains new music!

New Music and Trailer!

I've commissioned Chris Head to compose a new soundtrack for Final Days. The soundtrack's about half way done now, so more is to come! I'm really happy with Chris's work, and I hope you all enjoy it too! :D

I've also finally updated the trailer video and it features Chris's new music. I hope you like it!
Other Changes in v0.30

In addition to the new music, the other main change in v0.30 is unlockable progress. The game now starts with only the Rendezvous campaign and Recruit & Veteran difficulties being unlocked. Other modes/maps/difficulties become unlocked as you finish parts of the game.

And don't worry, any existing progress you've made before this update still counts. The relevant parts of the game will become unlocked when the game first starts.
  • If you just want to unlock everything immediately, then open the credits screen and type: IWANTITALL
  • You can also use the dedicated server which will always have everything unlocked
Other noteworthy changes in this update include:
  • Support for the new rich presence features in the upcoming new Steam chat
  • The demo has also been updated to include the first 2 maps from the Rendezvous campaign. It cycles between them and is capped at 7 days.
  • Several fixes
For the complete list of changes, check out the changelog.

Release Plans

This year has just flown past for me, it's June already! So it's about time I gave you all an update on my release plans for Final Days.

At this point in time, I don't have a firm release date. But tentatively, I'm planning to release Final Days out of Early Access in a few months time around September (give or take a month).

There are still a couple of "must have" features that I am committed to delivering before release, namely:
  • Customisable controls
  • Support for custom maps
  • I will also continue to further polish the game. I'll particularly be focusing on polishing gameplay (e.g. further improving the "Escape" campaign).
  • Anything else I can do in this time will be a bonus
There is obviously a lot more I'd like to do with Final Days, and I've received a lot of great ideas from the community. But time and money is a big factor for me. I've now spent around 3½ years in total developing Final Days, and have used up most of my savings in the process. It's been a tough journey (and has gone on longer than I planned), but I'm proud of what I've managed to achieve by myself in that time. I only hope that you, the players, also enjoy what I've created. And hopefully if sales do well, then I can afford to continue updating Final Days with new features (or maybe even make a new game)!

I have also always intended to raise the price of Final Days as I added further content and features. I haven't done this yet, but I can now confirm that I will be doing this for release. My tentative plan is to increase the price from US$4.99 to US$7.99. I hope you agree that this is a reasonable price.

So if you've been waiting to purchase Final Days and want to save a few bucks, then grab a copy while it's still in Early Access! The Steam Summer Sale should be coming up soon I think... ;)

Anyway, this has turned into quite a long post, so I'll wrap it up here. Hopefully I haven't missed anything. But if you have any questions or comments, then please let me know.

Bots & Matchmaking Update (v0.29)

The v0.29 update is now out, and as promised it adds in bots and a matchmaking system!

It has taken a little longer than usual to get this update out because implementing bots has been a lot of work. But I hope you find that the wait has been worth it :)

My aim with the bots was not to make them too smart, but to be good enough to help fill out games and make them more fun. Their main goal is to provide basic cover for the human players. And if all the human players die, then to try and keep the game going long enough for the human players to respawn.

And the new matchmaking system should make it much easier to get a game going. You just need to specify your preferences for the type of game you want, and it will take care of the rest. You will be connected to the most suitable game based on your preferences, the progress you've already made, network latency, and many other factors. If there are no suitable games available, then a new game will be automatically hosted with bots enabled.

There were also several other changes and fixes. For the complete list, check out the changelog.

As always, please feel free to share your feedback and suggestions with me. It is always appreciated! The best ways of reaching me are on the forums, Twitter, or Discord.

I hope you enjoy the update! :)

Before You Buy...

Final Days is in Early Access and is not yet finished. Before you buy, I encourage you to try the free demo first to get an idea of its current state. If you'd prefer to play it when it's finished, then please wait until it's out of Early Access.
