What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Dark Prospect is now in a state in which the basic idea is playable and all main features are implemented. It still needs some more work in terms of graphics/atmosphere and balancing.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The plan is to complete the game by the end of 2021.”

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

“The full version will offer a balanced gaming experience as well as new maps, more FPS gadgets and more RTS monsters. Moreover the graphics and sound will get an overhaul to deliver an atmospheric experience.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently offers a multiplayer experience in which you can either play from the perspective of the soldiers (FPS) or from the perspective of the overlord (RTS). There are currently three maps and two game modes and the Overlord can be played from either a player or an AI. The game modes differ in the mission objective of the soldiers. In the "Find and Destroy" mode, the soldiers must eradicate the overlord by destroying his bases. This mode involves searching for better weapons and equipment while being hunted by the overlord until you are ready to strike back. In Defense mode, soldiers must collect resources and build a base to withstand the overlord's onslaught. Both modes require good cooperation and tactical action on both sides.”

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

“Yes, the price will increase during the development in early access and will be higher after leaving early access.”

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

“The goal is to involve the players as closely as possible in the development. This includes in particular the possibility to vote on new features and to bring in new ideas.”
