What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to build up our community, see what the players want and have to suggest, and use their feedback and ideas to improve the overall Arcade Tycoon experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“6 to 8 months. We currently have 8 people working full time on the game, and we should be able to deliver a final version without any delays”

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

“The full version will feature many more assets, and will be much richer as Arcade Tycoon will keep on expanding throughout its Early Access phase with the help of the Steam community.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“About 80% completed; we aim to release monthly, if not weekly, updates expanding and improving upon the the game.”

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

“Early access will be more affordable at a lower price than the full release.”

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

“We will be running competitions for the community to design their own arcade machines and characters for the game; we will also be incorporating feedback.”
