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.”

Early December Update: Underground Content

A new build is live on Steam, for Windows and Linux!

Underground Content

This build includes new explorable content following on from the previous Street & Apartments update, following the continual adventures of the fisherman!

Opening Titles

A small but important detail, the opening titles now show the location of the fisherman in the prelude level, revealing the location of the wooden house and dock. Titles also exist after the fisherman falls, describing the location in relation to Act I, and the location in the world(!).

New Community Wiki

Community member Martin has been maintaining a wiki on Wikia ( ), which I am now working with him to transfer to the official Estranged Community Wiki:

This wiki is full of community compiled references to the lore and world of Estranged. If you're interested in the story of Act I and Act II, it's definitely worth browsing!

Some of my favourite pages:
If you're interested in becoming an editor, reach out to Martin on the Estranged Discord server!


I would also like to thank the Estranged volunteer translators and testers for their help with quickly translating and testing this update.

Stay tuned for more updates - if you'd like to provide feedback, head over to where you can chat with me, and meet the rest of the community!

Thanks for playing Estranged!

Mid November Update: Street, Apartments & Rifle

A new build is live on Steam, for Windows and Linux!

Street and Apartments

This build includes new content - the street is now explorable content, leading to an apartment block. I'll be continuing this content in future updates.

New Guard Type

There's a new Sokol guard in town with more armor, and a different weapon!

Playable Rifle

The rifle is now a playable weapon in Estranged: Act II! This can be found in the street level, and is also used by the new guard type.

Save System Overhaul

I have re-written the save system to make it more robust. There should be no notable change to the game itself, but under the hood each item in the game now has a unique ID to identify it.

The previous system used the names of the items, but because items can move between levels, name collisions could occur. To combat this, I introduced a tag to the item to describe the level that the item came from - but this system was far from perfect and often resulted in incorrect items being restored. This should no longer happen!


As ever, please let me know what you think! I'm around at alan [at] alanedwardes (dot) com, or on

Thank you for playing Estranged!
