What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Over the past four years 1000's of players have battle-hardened Outscape during Alpha testing. Many have said we are ready for a full launch. Yet we have so much more planned in our community driven roadmap. We are nowhere near 'done', and yet there is so much already available in game, so we have chosen to launch on Early Access. We are pleased to release this version with many new features and benefits exclusively to Steam members.

Funding from early access will help accelerate our development velocity and deliver more features to you faster.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our goal is to get to a full release as soon as possible - without compromising on quality or stability. Outscape will remain in Early Access until the community and our team consider Outscape to be reasonably feature-complete and its full potential is achieved. We estimate this will take at least 9-12 months.”

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

“We still have a ton of exciting features on our roadmap, the full version will include those, but these will also be available as they are developed in the Early Access version. The full version will cost more. Early access players get upgraded to the full version automatically upon any launch of the full version. Obviously there will be bugs and incomplete features in the Early Access version as well as some gameplay and balance issues. But this did not seem to put off most Alpha players and this Early Access version is an improvement on Alpha.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Early Access is the culmination of 4 years testing the Outscape Alpha with thousands of community players. It has a ton of features and an in-game tutorial. According to most in the community it is already a delightfully unique game to play. What we have mostly works well. There are a bunch of features we want to add, such as richer alliance mechanics, wormholes, ion storms - a huge list of these types of things. Many say the quality of what is developed so far is very very high. You can also choose from four playable civilizations (we're adding a 5th one very soon).”

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

“We're excited to be able to offer the Early Access version of Outscape at a lower price than the full version. Of course Early Access players get any full version for free as and when that launches.”

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

“The community has been vital to our development process ever since the first Alpha release. Players can provide feedback and discuss the game on the community forums and Discord, which our team evaluates while planning. Google 'Outscape Forum' to find our community and see how they are driving the roadmap.”
