What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I strongly believe that Early Access can help make better games; games that will resonate with players and stand the test of time. I successfully used Early Access for one of my previous games--Operation Hardcore--and shipped a full release within approximately 8 months.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I expect to be in Early Access for 6 months.”

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

“The full version will differ primarily in terms of content, polish and depth. Among the items planned for Early Access:
  • Achievements (of course!)
  • More variation in level layouts and environments (including: larger/wide open spaces, more variety in room shapes, etc.)
  • Additional enemy types (in particular: more "creature"-esque enemies, like tentacles, large insects, etc.)
  • More environmental hazards, including more prominent underwater areas
  • More beacon types, and in general, more of a focus on the beacon launcher (less on combat)
  • A boss level of sorts, along with a proper ending (I'm actually contemplating multiple endings)
  • More reasons to explore, backtrack (more distinct secret areas, locked doors, etc.).
  • More significance for luck, and greater use of stats in general (including more stats-affecting items)

This is subject to change, of course: I plan to use feedback from the community to influence what I prioritize.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All of the features listed in the "About This Game" section are currently implemented.”

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

“I plan to gradually raise the price as new content and features are added. As of now, I would expect an increase of approximately 30% for the final release price.”

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

“I plan to involve the community via forums, Discord, regular polls/questionnaires, etc.”

  • Sample an assortment of nourishment and libations in your quest to survive: expired canned food, toxic mushrooms, rancid wine, and more!
