What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Stellar Tactics will be constantly updated with fixes, new content, an expanding story and new locations during Early Access and after release. Your feedback, comments and suggestions will be critical for the next steps in the development process. You can see a list of player suggested features I've added to the game during Early Access.



Disclaimer: Though all the features released to Early Access are ready for feedback, there may be unexpected issues and some added features may not be as polished as I'd like them to be. I'd recommend purchasing the Early Access version of the game only if you want to support the development of Stellar Tactics. Please review the Stellar Tactics Roadmap in the discussion forums.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I'm not sure. I am committed to making this a great game and much will depend on your feedback and support. I'll be adding content constantly over the coming months, tuning game play based on feedback and implementing features listed in the Stellar Tactics Roadmap, posted in the discussion forums.”

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

“I'm wrapping up the core feature set of the game. Right now the game includes the starting story of the game, (around 10-12 hours) and the sandbox universe. The majority of the core systems are in the game right now. Here are a few of the things that need to be done before the game is considered complete:

• more devices for use in space and ground combat
• repair system
• additional hand-crafted story content
• tuning and adjustments to the combat system, economy, and progression
more information can be found in the roadmap on the forums

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of the game is fully playable and includes the beginning story-line and most supporting features. The game also currently contains the entire universe sandbox and can be played for many hundreds if not thousands of hours. I'm wrapping up the final set of core features before moving on to more story content, polish, and tuning.”

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

“Stellar Tactics price may go up, down or stay the same during and after Early Access. I'm not expecting to change the price, but it is possible.”

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

“I'm always looking to gather insightful feedback and ideas from the game community. I'm particularly interested in suggestions for improvements on the game systems, balance, story and the core game experience. I'll be interacting with the community through the Steam Discussions forum, carefully considering feedback and sharing my decisions on changes to the game that are community driven.”
