What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe in involving the community to nail the last piece of the puzzle, getting the gameplay and the feel just right. Inhouse playtesting can only go so far but the input of thousands can make a big change.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect the game will be in early access for about 4-8 months depending on how much more content is added.”

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

“The following is planned for the final version:

Atleast 5 different weapons, 5 different construction modules, Legendary equipment, different Powerups, Workshop support, Online Hiscore, atleast 6 levels and endbosses, 5 difficulty settings, 10 different enemy types”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The first available version has the following:

  • 6 different enemy types
  • 3 ship weapon parts - Shell, Laser, Rocket
  • 3 ship unit parts - Engine, Power, Wings
  • 3 fully playable levels with randomization elements
  • 3 endbosses
  • Completly destructible environment
  • Ship design and building system

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

“Any price change will reflect the amount of added content as we progress.”

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

“We will take the majority of player opionions into account to determine the best way to get the best possible gameplay and feel.”
