What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I originally intended to release the game as full access, but there is a large number of features and I have made some changes in the core system of the game very recently. I am a solo dev, and have been working on a bunch of games lately, so it is possible that there may be some bugs that slipped my attention. Even though I originally wanted a full release, I planned to listen to feedback to help shape the game so players would enjoy it. I think that releasing as early access is a better option as it shows that the feature set is not necessarily complete. So I decided to release the game as early access instead so that people are aware that a few places might need a bit of polishing and that some features can change.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I hope that issues, if found, should be sorted within a month or two of release.
Since VR is a relatively new gameplay experience and a lot of things can be done in various ways I believe that people will have opinions about how some things are implemented. If a majority would feel something needs to change then I would like to engage the community to help find a way thats suited for most. The amount of time this will require will depend on how much feedback I get and how people feel about what already is there.
The game should exit early access by fall 2018.”

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

“I have decided to specifically leave some things out because I tried to simulate a situation where you would actually get stranded on an island with only the things you could scavenge. It is possible that features such as (weapons, multi-item crafting, back-pack/bag) will be added back during the early access. The full version will also be more polished than the early access version.
The full version will also have modifications to the environment.
It is also possible that some kind of taming/companion animal system might be added.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“From my perspective the game is more or less feature complete. So it has all the things I wanted to include. The game has all the features listed in the "About This" section. Please see that to get an idead of what these features are.
I have decided to specifically leave some things out, but that does not impact the gameplay and if people feel some of these things are missing then they can be added back.”

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

“The price of the game will most likely increase slightly after the early access ends.”

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

“I hope to get feedback about any issues, and problems that arise.
I would also love to get as much feedback as possible about exisiting features and what people feel is missing, what they dont like, what they think could be done differently.
In any case they can contact me either through email, Steam or on facebook @ facebook.com/lucip-pixel”

Survival Simulator Early Access

Hi,
im happy to announce that Survival Simulator is entering Early Access. I hope you enjoy it. Please see the roadmap below to get an idea of what's planned in the coming updates. This roadmap is not final and if you'd like to see something new or something done differently please let me know on facebook.com/Lucid-Pixel-170868577018414/


Planned or in progress:
+inventory that allows more items (
a backpack that can hold 4-6 items and items can be grabbed directly/ or a backpack that can hold any number of items, but a small menu when putting a hand in the backpack)*
+wooden log buildings/ stone buildings
+(furniture/ interior building parts)?
+under water air supply timer
+agressive fish? (sharks)
+more animals? (what kind)
+canibals?
+2/3 smaller islands
+boat
+higher crafting hierarchy, multi resource crafting (with an anvil or similar) or combining crafted items *
+firearm weapons (part of the above)
+more survival-y UI?
+map? (or some other way to pinpoint locations of interest)
+optimizations

Tentative depending on interest:
+change terrain to voxel based to allow digging and actual mining? (would impact performance, and in combination with VR would probably not be possible)
+sandbox mode? unlimited resources, no vitals
+fishing system?
+more complex cooking system? (or crafting with food)
+animal companion system?
+rideable bears?

Can be examined once features and mechanics are settled and only if a lot of interest
+multiplayer play (2-(6/..12) people per island) with unlimited resources mode
+non-vr mode?


(I encourage you to engage in discussion about the best way implement the items on the roadmap. I am specifically looking for input on how important you think the items with a ? next to them are and input about the mechanics next to items with a *)


If you find any problems or are not satisfied with something, or you are just not sure about how something works please let me know on facebook.com/Lucid-Pixel-170868577018414/ or on the community hub.
