What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Player feedback is essential for building the best gaming experience when you are a small studio. Opening up early versions and letting people play will assist us in crafting a better game. The earliest version will be playable with a couple of levels which include missions and ship combat. Adding as many “early eyes” as possible will ensure we are creating the game that the Steam community deserves! The best games in the industry come from early community support and feedback. We want to hear YOUR feedback on both our VR and PC versions.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Cursed Isles is scheduled to launch in 6 - 12 months based on player feedback and content creation.”

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

“Cursed Isles has a solid foundation. We will always continue to improve our gameplay, UI, systems, weapons, effects, animations, and art. We plan on adding environments, missions and characters as we continue to update. In the full version, Cursed Isles will include:

Tavern Expansion
The tavern in the full version of the game will contain 2-4 mini games such as:
  • Pirate Bowling
  • Axe Throwing
  • Shooting Gallery
These enhancements as well as environmental updates will complete the tavern experience.

1st and 2nd Mission Enhancements
The first and second missions will be expanded to include more characters to battle. The map and level design will also be enhanced. Fighting and enemy interaction will continue to be developed.

Additional Missions
It is our intent to add 3-5 more missions to expand replayability and depth. These additional missions will include similar gameplay to the first two, however, they will also feature new environments. Additional missions will open up sequentially based on storyline.

Additional Replayability
For the completionist in all of us… we would also like to add more replayable incentives like high scores, achievements, against the clock, sword only mode, collect C-U-R-S-E-D letters, and easy to hard modes to challenge the perfectionist.

Game Interaction Improvements
Better controls based on user feedback, user tutorials and VR menu/item interaction will also be improved to provide an enhanced experience to our players.

Character and Vehicle Improvements
The full version of Cursed Isles will contain character and vehicle improvements in both gameplay and aesthetics.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Cursed Isles is a single-player RPG that pits the player against AI. Players will combat against enemy NPCs and forts in first person (VR) or third person (PC) shooter environment to gather key ingredients in a lush Caribbean environment. Successful players will master swashbuckling, captaining a ship and open sea battles to complete their missions.

Starting Point - Pirate Hangout / Tavern / Armory
Made for an immersive VR/PC game experience this is the main location where you get your missions and can interact with different objects. In the early build, we present entry points for both the sword/gun combat mission and the ship combat mission.

1st Mission - Sword/Gun Combat / Item Collection Level
In this mission, you will spawn outside of the tavern and you are tasked to fill a work order. This mission is to collect all the ingredients for making 10 rum barrels and bring them back to the distillery. Gamers will battle AI characters and enemy towers using a sword and ranged weapon to secure these items to complete the mission successfully.

2nd Mission - Ship Combat Level
In this mission, gamers will find themselves sailing their very own ship. The player is tasked to sail the open seas using their ship to battle AI ships and enemy forts using cannon fire to successfully deliver the 10 rum barrels. Once the destination is reached, the mission is considered a success. The environment is complete with underwater creatures that players will notice if they fail and their ship sinks. Like every good captain, players go down with the ship if they are bested by the enemy forts or ships.”

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

“Not for anyone that purchases the Early Access version. All supporters of this Early Access game will be grandfathered and receive updates for Cursed Isles. As we continue to enhance the Cursed Isles experience we plan on adjusting the price according to market norms. Early Access customers will not be impacted by any price adjustments.”

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

“We will be soliciting feedback from the Early Access participants to help us better develop current and future content. We believe strongly that community feedback will enhance the end user experience and therefore drive a better game. Your feedback will help us continue to polish the levels, art, 3d interaction and overall gameplay. We welcome any feedback.”
