What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We love to have our community form a part of our development process. With you being on board from the start we can gather your feedback and you can be a part of the game's growth from its inception!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“While we cannot accurately pinpoint a launch date, we can say that it will take approximately one year and potentially a bit more depending on myriad of factors.”

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

“We plan to add the following to the final version of the game:

1. Ships: There will be multiple new playable ships available for the player to purchase, customize and play as.
2. New internal systems and weapons for your ships.
3. Many new events (secondary and random) for you to encounter.
4. The final two chapters in the game will be available.
5. A New wave based gameplay mode will be added.
6. General polish and optimization.
7. Controller support.
8, More OST music (more tracks).”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of the title has a total of 160 events between secondary, random and main storyline events. There are 9 playable ships, fully customizable, each with their systems and armaments. Currently there's around 12 hours of gameplay split into three main chapters, with an additional Prologue chapter. Voice acting is present during the current main mission chapters. There are minor bugs in the title that we are working to polish, with optimization being a focus as well.”

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

“Yes, after Early Access we will increase the game's price.”

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

“We use discord as a direct method of communication with our player base. We also have an integrated bug and suggestion report system in-game and take the time to hear each and every bug report, comment and suggestion in our discord channels.”
