What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Startup Company is now stable and playable. We believe this is the perfect time to start inviting the community to help optimize existing features, polish the game balance and most importantly deciding what new features should be added.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until we all agree it's done - we've got a lot of features that we want to implement into the game. In addition to that we're listening closely to our community, so features that were initially not planned for Startup Company might make it into the final release if there are a lot of requests.”

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

“New features are constantly being added, but our current roadmap looks like this:

  • New employee type: Marketers (including marketing campaigns)
  • Employees requiring raises and eventually switching to competitors
  • Random events
  • Improved sound effects
  • More achievements
  • Improved usability and tips/help
  • In-game Help system
  • Performance Optimization
  • New offices and items
However we recommend only purchasing the game if you want to play it as it is right now.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is stable on all platforms and completely playable. Current content is providing up to 20 hours of playtime.”

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

“The price will most likely increase as new content and features are added. The lower early access price is intended to thank early adopters for their support. The game is working on Windows, Mac and Linux.”

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

“Startup Company is already built by the community. From the beginning all development has been streamed on Twitch. Bugtracking is kept publicly available to everyone and new features has always been based on requests. We also run a very active Discord community where community members mingle and share tips on how to build an even better company!

We will continue down this path and inviting Steam Early Access players to join the conversation.”
