What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access is your chance to help us make a great game. I am a strong believer in open development and we are excited to bring you along every step of the way. None of my games are ever finished and will continue to evolve over time. Ask questions, share ideas or simply hang out with the team. This is your game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“With your help we expect to launch six months after from Early Access launch.”

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

“Currently the game has all the core features. You can select from one of three tank classes, move anywhere, customize your snail and battle with your friends. The full version will include more items to customize your snail, more battle maps and leaderboards.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently has a lobby and a battle map. We also have a small collection of items to customize your Snail. With your help and feedback we look forward to adding more items and maps.”

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

“No, Epic Snails will remain a free game. We plan to sell a number of skins to customize your snail.”

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

“We have a dedicated Community Team that will be checking the forums daily and accepting e-mails with all issues and direct feedback. We will look to survey and poll the audience over key features or concerns and try to turn qualitative feedback into tangible responses, by addressing issues in future releases. We are also planning a number of live streams to discuss the game.”

What's Next For Epic Snails?

Fellow Snails,

We know you've been looking forward to the next update to Epic Snails and it's finally here. While you won't see many changes on the surface, you will feel them as you play. We have completely re-written the game from the ground up using a whole new server architecture.

We know... you really don't care about how it works 'under the hood', but here's why it matters. This new code improves performance, drastically smooths out movement and firing, and provides for a much more robust and accurate means of squashing hacking attempts. No more invincible snails zipping around at ridiculous speeds.

The best is yet to come. This new system will allow us to create interesting game mechanics that will make Epic Snails even more unique and special. Let us know what you think!

Winter Update - Version 1.1.0

Greetings epic fans! Welcome to our first event. The team has been busy working on a number of big updates. First is our new battle map called "SnowForts".
