What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We release our games into Early Access to make it clear that we intend to make improvements and create additional content based on player feedback. EXAPUNKS will be our fifth title to be released this way.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Not very long. A few months?”

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

“The official release of the game will contain usability and balance improvements based on feedback collected from players during the Early Access period.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Much like our previous Early Access titles, EXAPUNKS is functionally complete. It includes a fully realized story-driven campaign, a puzzle editor, Steam Workshop integration, a sandbox where you can create your own games, and not one but two completely unnecessary minigames.”

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

“No.”

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

“We’ll be listening to your feedback via email, on the Steam forums, and on the game’s official Reddit page.”

UPDATE: Wrapping up Early Access, part 4 of ???

Today's update includes the following changes:
  • Restored the ability to completely collapse an EXA window. You can now click through the collapse settings from full, to condensed, to fully collapsed.
  • Decreased the size limit for selenium_wolf's bonus puzzle from 150 to 100.
  • Fixed a bug where editing the code for an EXA set to condensed view would
    always scroll so that the fifth line of code was visible.
  • Fixed a bug where an EXA's registers would slide off the EXA window when scrolling while the EXA was holding a file.
  • Fixed an issue where shadows were not drawn correctly in x10x10x's bonus puzzle.

About This Game

The year is 1997. You used to be a hacker, but now you have the phage. You made a deal: one hack, one dose. There’s nothing left to lose… except your life.

EXAPUNKS is the latest open-ended puzzle game from Zachtronics, the creators of Opus Magnum, SHENZHEN I/O, TIS-100, and more.

  • WRITE VIRUSES - Program your EXAs (EXecution Agents) to tear through networks, replicate themselves, trash files, terminate other EXAs— and leave without a trace.
  • HACK EVERYTHING - Hack banks, universities, factories, TV stations, highway signs, game consoles, the government... oh yeah, and your own body.
  • SLACK OFF - Play ПАСЬЯНС, if you hack the server where it’s stored. Or play HACK*MATCH, if you hack the region lock on your Sawayama WonderDisc. Or create your own homebrew games for the TEC Redshift… if you hack the development kit.
