What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I believe that involving players as early as possible is crucial for developing a great game. Early Access offers a great platform for doing exactly this and I hope you will consider being a part of this process.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Estimated release is late 2018.”

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

“Over time the game will be expanded with more content and features. The player will have access to an expanding selection of weapons, upgrades and playable hovercraft that makes each play feel different. The game will receive regular updates while it is in Early Access.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“See the "About this game" section on the store page for an overview of the current content.”

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

“The price will remain fixed during Early Access. It is likely the price will be raised once the game leaves Early Access.”

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

“The community will be deeply involved in shaping the game and its future content.
I value player feedback and suggestions highly and I will be in constant communication with the community to ensure that the game is moving in the right direction.

If you have any feedback or suggestions, feel free to let me know on the Steam forums”
