What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game in its current state already offers a lot of fun gameplay, so it makes sense to give people the opportunity to get in early and get to know the mechanics! Also, since the game will be heavily geared towards sharing community-made designs (both rovers and levels), we're hoping for a healthy community to grow during the Early Access, so that when the game comes out there's already a wealth of creations to explore.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately 10 months. The full release is planned for Q1 2022.”

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

“We'll add some major features during the Early Access, such as the level editor and new parts/materials. There will also be a lot more official levels, and of course the game will be generally more polished and stable.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version available for purchase is an older version of the game. We have all but completely revamped that whole game during the last year. In April 2021 we'll release the first major Early Access update that will give players access to the new, improved Rover Builder. After that we'll release more incremental updates with new features during this year.

In the new version the main elements regarding making rovers are already in place: designing rovers, saving them in the rover gallery, and sharing them with the community. There's also some official levels to play through, and a lot more will come in later updates.”

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

“While we're still ironing out the details and the pricing may change depending on the content in the game at full release, you can be safe in the knowledge that buying at the current price will get you all the forthcoming updates through the game's Early Access journey and all the way to full launch.”

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

“We are hoping to get loads of constructive feedback, so that we’d know what people want to see in a game like this. Bug reports are also always welcome, of course. After we release the update with the new level editor, it's also possible to take some of the best community-made levels and include them into the official levels.”
