What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“In the past, Coregrounds has already become a much better game thanks to player feedback. Starting the all-new Steam version in Early Access is the perfect way to continue this tradition. With the help of our players we hope to make this game the best it can possibly be!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“About six to twelve months.”

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

“The core game is more or less complete, but the full version will have more a lot more units and abilities for example: we plan to add at least two dozen more towers, minions and abilities to the game during the Early Access phase, as well as many more vanity items like skins. Furthermore we plan to implement additional game modes, even with support for four players! We also want to tweak the graphics further and improve and add more animations.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We ship a completely rebuilt Coregrounds to Steam and as such, the new version will need bugfixes and balancing. All the features mentioned in the game description below are already implemented though.”

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

“The prices will stay the same.”

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

“We're happy about all feedback regarding the game balance, new ideas for units, towers or abilities or even new game mechanics. We have been working closely with the community in the past, several units in the game were actually ideas from players!”
