What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Because what players have to say is important. Receiving feedback and gaining support is essential to developing Space Wrangler to its full potential. To achieve this, the game must find its way into the hands of players as soon as possible. This community’s feedback/support will greatly improve and expedite the overall development of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Plans exist to further develop features, systems, and mechanics for Space Wrangler over the course of a 6 to 12-month period. Space Wrangler will not remain in Early Access for longer than it needs and will exit Early Access upon the completion of all major development goals.”

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

“The full version of Space Wrangler is designed to be a multi-faceted and dynamic platform that will support various forms of gameplay. Game modes featured will deliver enjoyable and re-playable experiences to a large and diverse audience from casual players to fans of simulation. This version intends to include a few major additions to the game that will compliment all forms of preexisting gameplay and add some new ones.
Multiplayer Support
Space is a dangerous place, get help from friends. Core game modes will support at least 2 players cooperatively playing together online. A new game mode will also be introduced to support a larger server population playing together or against each other.
First Contact Mode
Explore and investigate an unknown sector of space where an unexplained disturbance in space-time has been identified. Observe and interact with a new aspect of our universe, black holes. Venture into them to uncover whatever secrets they hold.
Cinematic Mode
The Universe is beautiful, take a picture. Harness the full power of a robust camera suite to capture or record moments of your gameplay with cinematic quality. This system also enables players to configure their default camera setup at any time during gameplay to create a new perspective to experience the universe from.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game, as it is currently, includes the core features, systems, and mechanics needed to experience the game at a base level. Some experimental elements of the game are partially available so that feedback on them can be given. Be advised, exploring experimental content within the game may change the gameplay experience.”

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

While in Early Access, the price to purchase Space Wrangler will NOT change. After Early Access, a Full Release price change may occur but is not certain now. Confirmation on a “yes” or “no” for this change will come at a later point when most, if not all, of the development goals are satisfied.”

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

“The community will have the means to be engaged with every step of development for Space Wrangler while in Early Access. Through official forums, bug trackers, and feedback portals, the community will have various options made available to them to share their thoughts on the game with each other and/or the developer(s). All community platforms will remain accessible and further used after Early Access.”

Future of Development 2018


Development with the game is moving forward with the next update expected to be ready by the end of summer, if not sooner. The recent few months have been spent partially waiting for an engine update and bringing on some new people to the team.

The recent price drop is an adjustment that better represents the current content of the game. However, no features have been cut from the game so you can expect the same game to be developed that you initially found interest in. Price adjustments aren't great but when they need to occur, you have to do them. Having the game at a higher price than what it is currently worth didn't set well with me. If this is something that doesn't set well with you, choosing to refund the game through steam is an option I won't blame you for taking.

The development details moving forward are unchanged from prior statements. Expect new planets, game-play, and more coming this year. Thanks to all of you supporting the game during it's early access period and to those who have not lost interest during our brief absence. The future is bright and we look forward to bringing you more of Space Wrangler.

Special Notice

Word of Warning

Just a word of warning to those out there looking to blaze through the cosmos. Space Wrangler is a game that lets you play with physics to the point that the results you experience can vary, to say the least. The game can handle quite a bit, but if you push the forces hard enough you will potentially break something in it. But that's OK, we will make it better over time.

Any input/feedback on experienced results is more than welcome and can be expressed on the community discussion boards. Fortunately at the moment, I haven't made the player damageable in the game. So when you hurl yourself into the moon accelerating at multiple times the acceleration of gravity on Earth, you won't even walk away with a scratch.
