What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“When we decided to make Garrison: Archangel, we drew on our love for giant robots, mecha and anime to make the game of our dreams. When we released our free demo and got greenlit, we soon learned that there were others like us who loved the same things and saw in this game the potential we sought.

Early Access is our way to get those players to help us make Garrison: Archangel a reality. We want to make that fast-paced, competitive, customizable anime-style mecha game you can play with your friends - online or on your couch. Let's make this dream game together!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game has been in early access for a year now, and has transformed significantly in terms of gameplay mechanics, content and visuals.

Given our shift from our planned online multiplayer-centric play to a single-player campaign to round out the arcade and local multiplayer content already in the game, we are seeing another year of development before completion. We hope to finish the game by Q3 of 2019.”

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

“In our previous year of early access, we released the horde, survival and duel tickets game modes which you can play in single-player our locally via split-screen play. We also released several weapons and changed many mechanics in pursuit of improving the gameplay.

What we aim to complete now is a true single-player campaign to round out the multiplayer and arcade experiences we provide currently. The campaign will provide progression, equipment and customization unlocks, as well as narrative context for the world of Garrison: Archangel. In addition, we will continue to create and release more weapons, equipment and other game content in our endeavor to complete this single-player campaign.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Garrison: Archangel has changed extensively in a single year of development. Its visuals have dramatically improved, and its game mechanics and content are much different from its demo days.

As a fast-paced, customizeable mecha arena fighter, it has arcade, alternative game modes such as horde and survival, local split-screen play and peer-to-peer net play. The game has over 100 parts and weapons to mix and match in more than a billion possible combinations, and players are free to experiment and try out their builds in the game's garage. It has already gone through several iterations of balance changes and mechanics changes thanks to our community feedback and tournaments, for our original goal of making the game a competitive arena fighter.

In that sense, we had already completed our original goal of making a fast-paced mecha arena fighter suitable for competitive play. We continue to develop along these lines, as that was the original intention when we set out to create Garrison: Archangel.

We now attempt the daunting task of expanding the game beyond this to create a true single-player experience with narrative and progression, a highly requested feature during the first year of Early Access. We believe that with the inclusion of such a game mode, the game will be a complete, standalone title worthy of being the definitive mecha game on steam.

For this past year, we depended heavily on player feedback, and our community's assistance will be absolutely necessary to get this game completed!”

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

“We've had a set price throughout Early Access for the past year, which we discounted only during sales and specials. We will continue to maintain this price point throughout early access, but we may increase its price on full release.”

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

“Ever since our Steam Greenlight and free demo period, we've been close to our communities on discord and our various social media pages, receiving feedback, bug reports, and suggestions from our players.

For the past several years we've updated the game to become what it is today, fueled by this dialogue between us and our playerbase. A lot of content in the game is actually made by volunteers in the community, so it's not a stretch to say that the game is really a joint effort between us and our players.

This bond won't change - and we hope to grow our community to make Garrison: Archangel the best game we can!”
