What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We chose to go with Early Access because we believe this is a game where the community can be heavily influential in determining new content to be added to the game.

We look forward to pushing regular updates to display our commitment to the development of the game with the goal of creating a product that both us, the developers, and you, the customer, can be proud of.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We intend to stay Early Access until late this year. We are working hard to fix and improve upon all aspects of the game. Content will be released throughout the year, with larger updates as we near the official release.”

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

“The full version is planned to feature 6 additional maps with new items, 12+ new cookies and 6+ new Santa characters. New content will continue to be developed after the official release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently features both single and multiplayer content.”

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

“The game will remain the same price after early access.”

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

“Communication and scheduled updates are what is most important to us. We like our updates to reflect what changes the community request. The community is also crucial to discovering and fixing any bugs we overlooked during development. We believe these practices will help us create a stable, balanced game to be enjoyed by many.”
