What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As the sole developer of Mercury Fallen, early access is a great way to support the project and build a community of players that can assist in its development through feedback, reporting and exposure. The game has already benefited greatly from community feedback and through Early Access I hope to continue to grow the community as the game evolves. Join the adventure and help make Mercury Fallen the best it can be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game is very playable and enjoyable, but there is still ground to cover with new content and updates. As a sole developer it's challenging to properly estimate how long it will take to get to final release. I'm dedicated to releasing regular updates to the game and currently plan to release in 2019.”

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

“The focus of Mercury Fallen is building and exploration. Many of the core elements of building and management are in place, but will continue to be expanded upon. As development continues more focus will be put on exploration with the addition of discoveries, surface expeditions, story content and more.

Planned Features

  • Expanded technology tree
  • More crops and natural resources
  • Alien artifacts
  • Additional Cloning options / genetics
  • Trading
  • Planet Surface construction
  • Additional Story content
  • Various Surface exploration and exploitation

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game has many hours of content and has been enjoyed by many users. The game contains most of the core elements that will continue to be added upon. In the current version of the game, the player can mine and grow resources, refine materials at crafting stations and expand the facility with additional rooms, machines and decorations. Manage colonist quirks, ailments and customization options. Explore and exploit the planet surface. The focus of the game is to build, expand and explore.

Players can manage power/water distribution, resource management and more. The game has a solidly playable and enjoyable foundation and I will add even more great content.”

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

“The game will most likely increase in price after early access.”

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

“Most games are only as good as the community behind it. As a single developer, it's not always easy to address all individual concerns, but I am eager to communicate with my audience via email, community forums and social media. I do my best to listen to player feedback and deliver on what makes sense for the game. I also involve the community in optional test versions of the game before main game updates.”
