What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The core versus experience and online features are ready to enjoy, but before we can call the game "complete" we're in need of feedback from players while we work on additional features.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our 1.0 release will be ready before the end of 2019.”

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

“1.0 launches with the first chapter of Story Mode, with future installments released as free updates in the months following.

Other improvements include the addition of a "level 3" super attack for each character, refinements to the UI, updates to animation and special effects, and honing gameplay balance.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version contains the full core combat experience, with both local play and online matchmaking/visual lobby options available. The Salt Mines minigame inside each Pixel Lobby provides a way to unlock cosmetics, and we also have a single-player tutorial, Arcade Mode, and Target Challenge Mode.”

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

“The pricing will not differ between Early Access and 1.0.

If you're mostly interested in Story Mode, you can safely wait for the full release without worrying about a price increase. If you're itching to dive into the combat, Early Access already provides the scratch.”

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

“We will be taking any and all feedback regarding the game's features in order to improve them, but we're especially looking to hear player's thoughts on the Salt Mines and Story Mode as we proceed in development.”
