What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“HikeJam is in Early Access to test out the unique concept to build trails from GPX files and experiment with the gameplay for further optimization, "Don't expect the game to be flawless". In this time span, you can expect massive modifications if the community thinks the game should change direction or dismiss features. Your input from real-world hiking experiences would be a great help to make the game even more fun. I want every hiker to love it and I will work very hard in the next years to achieve those goals.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“HikeJam will leave the Early Access status when there has been enough experimenting and dismissing of not working features, probably till around the first quarter of 2019. Afterward, the game will go in Beta phase. HikeJam early access supporter will get the game for a low price. Early fans should pay the lowest price and not be the bug finders that pay the highest price.”

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

The overall scope for the different development stages in simple terms:

Early Access=> Experiment and flesh out existing not working features.

Beta Release=> Offers still new features but rather polishing up the existing gameplay.

Full Version=> Gameplay is fundamentally finished and achieved robustness, all features are final.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“HikeJam can already convert GPX files to a playable trail. Pick your gear and make it from shelter to shelter alone or with your friends. Your mood plays an essential role in your survival. Pick up airdrops or cut down trees to get loot. Be careful of traps, rough weather conditions and wild animals that attack you. The rank and stats system will open up badges to customize your rucksack.”

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

Yes. Early access supporter will play at the lowest price. There will be no DLC content ever; the game is the game.”

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

“A genuine joy will be for me if community members create and share their custom trails that are even more fun to play than the standard trails I did include in the game. I would also enjoy hearing your hiking stories; maybe I can learn or extract information to make items or animals for HikeJam that way. It would also be interesting to develop a community-driven "Hiking Weekend Cup."
