Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Estranged: Act I was released in 7 standalone increments, which proved to be extremely successful in terms of shaping the game. Using Early Access to work in the same iterative way allows us to do the same for Act II, however with smaller, faster updates.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in early access until it is completed. We have a roadmap, and will keep the community updated when we intend to release fully.

Estranged is a spare time, hobby project, and while we are all working alongside other commitments, we are passionate about delivering a fun, immersive experience for players.”

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

“The full version will represent the finished game and story experience, whereas the early access version will include procedural updates to a work-in-progress story and world.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of the game (at the time of writing) includes around 20-30 minutes of gameplay, which we intend to bring up to around an hour and a half, which is the length of the first act.”

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

“We plan to charge a nominal amount for the game once it is complete, but during the early access phase it will be completely free of charge.”

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

“We plan to continually work with the community to act on feedback about our direction, and to improve on the experience for the final product. We'll use various tools for this, but primarily the Steam forums.”

Mid March Update

A build is now live for Windows and Linux, including new content, a tweak to how weapon ammo is consumed, voice work and improved collision meshes for some objects.

Beach Content

I have been working on more story and level content, leading up to the final scenes of the game. I'm not releasing the final content just yet, but I have included some of the new content to give you a preview of what is to come.

As I have said in previous posts, content updates might slow down during this time while I focus time on this ending section, but I'll do my best to continue to push builds with other improvements to gameplay and the earlier content in the meantime.

Act II Now Stays in your Steam Library

One thing I have been saying for a long time is that if you download the game while in Early Access, you will get to keep it forever, for free. Some of you may have noticed that Act II is now appearing back in your Steam library as a result of this - it is now "sticky", meaning it won't disappear as other free titles do.

See the following thread for discussion:

Other Changes in this Build
  • Weapon Ammo - Picking up a weapon with the same ammo type as your weapon now consumes the ammo, instead of replacing your weapon
  • Toilet Collision - The rubber ducks can now be placed into the toilet in the Prelude (this was a highly requested feature)
  • New Voice Clips - The voice clips in the mine have been replaced by a native Scottish speaker (previously it was me putting on an accent)
Thanks for playing Estranged: Act II! As I said above I'm working towards completing Act II in the next few months, so all feedback is welcome to feed into this process. I will still be able to release updates once the game is finished, but making changes to some parts becomes more tricky due to saved games.

Early March Update: New Infected, New Content & More!

A build is now live for Windows and Linux including new infected, content and various improvements and tweaks to gameplay.

New Infected & Continued Underground Content

There's a new infected type in town! To explore the newer content which introduces the new enemy and provides the story background around how they got there, head over to Chapter 3 (or use the cheat map TheBase#sp07 to jump directly there).

There's also little more content to accompany the current ending, welcoming back a familiar story element. Keep watching for more content in the next few updates!

Cheats Auto-Complete

The cheat entry box on the Extras menu now auto-completes, allowing you to see a list of cheats up-front. Start typing "map" or "spawn" to show a full list of cheats.

Other Changes
  • Jumping up on surfaces is now animated - previously it looked as if the player was teleported
  • It's no longer possible to bypass picking up the pickaxe in the mind
  • The pickaxe now breaks in the sewer level to make the chase scene feel more dangerous, and the pickaxe can now deal damage to infected characters later in the game
  • Water footstep sounds - walking in water now has more ambient noise
  • In the warehouse horde, the infected corpses are now cleaned up
  • The rubber ducks in the prelude level now float upright!
The always growing Discord community is around at if you'd like to chat with other Estranged players or feed back directly to me!

Thanks for playing Estranged!
