What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is still currently in development and with a game based around the community creating and sharing of these creations, early access will allow us to push updates and new features and see how well they are received as well as just further optimizing and finalizing the core game features.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The plan is to take hopefully 4 months to find finish up the game’s level editor’s main features, campaign levels, and multiplayer features. After this, future updates will continue to be published adding new features/bug fixes post “release.””

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

“The early access version will slowly introduce new features that aren’t 100% stable, and will slowly come closer to a much more optimized and functional product. As where the full version will have all the features planned finished, optimized, and stable. Another main difference is the levels created in early access versions might not be compatible with future/different versions while all versions of the released Cranium Conundrum will be compatible with each other and able to play on (as long as the level was made in a released version of the game).”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of the Early Access version is in early alpha. The game is still going through bug fixes and engine optimizations and is still unstable and prone to crashes and bugs.”

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price once the game reaches near it’s finalized state and all planned content and features have been added and finished.”

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

“The community feedback and involvement will be crucial to the development of this game in its early access state. Bugs and Crashes will be able to reported to help us fix any issues users come across in the alphas. In addition to bug reporting, the community will also be able to submit ideas for features for the level editor mode (e.g. gimmick ideas, materials, stickers, or even costume ideas) and most suggestions will be taken into consideration during the development of this game.”
