What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Dog Duty is in its final development stages, but could still use some user feedback to improve the game. The game is in Early Access to detect bugs, gather user feedback and find overall improvement points. Furthermore, we really want to hear what players find important and where our focus should be. We've been working on the game for several years, so we definitely want new players to look at the game from an open, fresh perspective.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This strongly depends on the user feedback we get, but we hope to get into full release later this year.”

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

“The first version of the game just had an intro level and some playable characters. Now, we’ve got an open world with three regions, more playable characters, more gear, a bigger story, three bosses and an end-boss. In terms of content, we're quite confident to say that the current version is done, so we just have to polish the game until its full release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable from start to finish and contains all content that is planned for the full release. However, the game still has some breaking bugs and crashes, and is not fully polished.”

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

“Yes, during Early Access the game will be priced slightly lower.”

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

“We're open for all player feedback and take all comments very seriously. Whether it's through the Steam Community Hub, on Discord or on social media, we collect and save all feedback. We'll also post regularly on the community hub to share updates and patch notes.”
