What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have decided to involve our Steam audience during development as we shape and polish the game into the final product.

The ability to have discussions with an active Steam community and receive feedback which we can act upon before completion will be an extremely rewarding process and direct the game towards a much stronger release! With a much wider audience to test with; we will make far better progress working on general gameplay features, difficulty balancing, online leaderboards, steam integration, performance optimization, anti-cheating and bugs.

Join us as we complete AEGIS 2186 together!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning 4 to 8 months of Early Access, however this is open to change.”

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

“There is not much more to add to the core of the gameplay experience, however some features could change entirely or receive significant modifications! Gameplay, graphics and sound will continue to be improved and there is more features planned, such as a complete soundtrack, a hardcore league, more controller options/gamepad support and more to come!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“AEGIS 2186 is fully playable with the majority of features already implemented! You can play the game and compete on the Steam leaderboards!

There may be bugs and compatibility issues across the wide range of hardware/software setups we are opening the game up to.

There will also be regular leaderboard wipes during Early Access so don't get too attached to your highscore!”

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

“AEGIS 2186 will remain at the current price forever.”

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

“We want to involve the community deeply in development, utilizing feedback and discussions on the Steam forums. Community interaction is going to be a very important part of the remaining development time for AEGIS 2186!

We look forward to working together with you and the rest of the community!”
