What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Early Access program made Onward possible as an independently developed game. From the start we’ve worked with our community to determine the priorities and direction of development throughout the last couple of years. Onward is currently maturing fast, and we’re certain that without the Early Access program we wouldn’t have been able to develop the game we have now. We owe a huge thanks to our fans and supporters, and we hope you’ll join the many people who play Onward every day.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We think Onward is currently in the final stages of Early Access, and we plan to leave Early Access within a year when we feel we’ve delivered on the vision we developed with our community.”

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

“At this point the focus in Onward’s development is on finishing touches, improving stability, optimisations to the game’s source code, and general polish.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is almost complete from a functional perspective and is being played by thousands of people. We are aware of some technical issues which we’re working to resolve as soon as possible so that everyone can enjoy the game.”

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

“We had originally planned to increase the price after leaving the Early Access program but as a thank you to our community we’ve decided to keep the price where it is now.”

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

“Over the past few years our community has been involved closely in the decisions we’ve made for Onward in both direction and priorities. Even to this day we regularly consult with our community on which new features to add or if any major new issues have popped up.”
