What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Beat Hazard 2 is in a very playable state and I want to get the game out to the fans and get some feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately 9 months if all goes well.”

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

“I plan on adding a lot of new features:
- Steam workshop support
- Steam Achievements
- Steam trading cards
- More enemy ship types
- More perks and weapon types
- More boss types”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game contains all the features mentioned in the 'About This Game' section of the store page.

From a feature point of view the current game is now very similar to the original Beat Hazard with all the DLCs included.”

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

“No, I plan on keeping the price as it is.”

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

“I'm open to all feedback on the Steam forums, also I have an official Beat Hazard Discord server.
I also have a public Trello board where players can see the current list of bugs/fixes and up coming new features.”

V1.073 - Shadow Missions!

Shadow Missions have now been added to the game.

Each ship can have up to 4 missions. For BH2 I've added more mission types and completion criteria. This time round I've removed any penalties for dying.

Let me know your thoughts!

V1.071 Update

This update has some attempts to fix a slow down problem experienced by some players when using a game pad.

- Updated to latest version of SteamWorks
- Updated to latest version of SDL2 (2.0.9)
- Tweaked game pad processing system


- Added PlayStation game pad icons if you're using a PS4 controller

Please report back if you find anything odd happening with the new build. Updating low level libraries can sometimes have unforeseen issues.

Other than that, I'm in the middle of adding ship mission (hence the stars). They should be functional soon.
