What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Steam Early Access is great way for me to get feedback on the gameplay elements parallel to the performance capture for this game instead of in series. I have always intended to release the game in this way so I designed the systems to be easy to modify and highly modular to allow for fast iteration based upon feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“'A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad' Shigeru Miyamoto

The game will spend between three and six months in early access.”

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

“The full version of the game will Include a full story mode which takes place over a set period of time (two hours) and is designed to be replayed over and over, much like Dead rising, Majora's Mask or a Hitman level. This mode will be fully voiced and performance captured.

In addition to this I will pick fifty of the best challenge scenarios of the hundred plus I will release during early access to make it in to the final game. As well as a few bonus ones that won't receive any public testing.

After this I aspire to add online leader boards for the challenge mode and an asymmetric Co-op mode in which the additional player runs intelligence for the main player. I would also like to add native 3D support and push the graphics as much as I can!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current build has a selection of challenge scenarios and a free roam mode. This is deliberately minimalist so as to facilitate testing of a small but complex group of components first; the User interface, the robustness of enemy AI and the efficacy of Level streaming.

After this in approximately two week intervals new challenge scenarios and features will be added.”

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

“If the game takes three months more of development then it's price will raise about 35% if it takes six months it will raise between 70-100% in price.”

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

“Although specific playtesting goals will be released with each new patch the general intention is to get players to give me feedback on bugs, but also what they find compelling and what they would like to see more of in a game of this nature.

In Early Access build 1.1 I am looking for feedback primary on the any bugs n the AI, menu and streaming system and after these are proved to be solid I will bring in a host of more complex features and expand the scope of the feedback.”

About This Game

The Silence Outside is a First Person Stealth Mystery game with high replayability designed to be played multiple times to experience the full depth of the game. In addition to the main story mode a separate challenge mode pits the player against an expanding variety of small gameplay focussed challenges with the ability to unlock additional bonus content for fun and experimentation.

The Silence Outside is an Early Access game, and the developers first game, which should be bore in mind when judging the game. Additionally the insight offered by people playing it during this period is invaluable.
