What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Black Survival was designed for mobile devices. The Steam version is a port for players who wish to access via PC and is currently under testing for more improvements on gameplay.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We’re aiming for completing this port by the end of Winter 2019.”

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

“As time goes one, we will add more features such as Team Mode. We’d also like to improve the game’s UX, optimized for the PC configuration.

Planned features include:
- Team Battle: 3 vs. 3 or 4 vs. 4
- 10+ brand new Characters
- A new map”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, this game is identical to its mobile version. We have been operating Black Survival in iOS and Android platforms; you can sync your Steam account to your mobile devices.

Current features include:
- A full tutorial
- 10-player Survival Mode: Ranked Matches, Normal Matches, and single-player mode - all in one map (Lumia Island)
- More than 30 Characters
- Tech Lab and Research Center for players to customize their gameplay experience
- Daily Quests, Weekly Quests, and Growth Quests”

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

“The game’s price tag will not go up.”

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

“We are receiving user feedbacks through a Discord server. We run support programs for streamers and user-run tournaments. We are particularly proud of engaging with our fan translators, who have made Black Survival available in many languages.

Black Survival is constantly growing. We’d like to listen to your advice, so that we can make it a more fun game. Though we are not used to the Steam community, we want to hear what you think of it.”
