What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The first iteration of this game was designed as a foundation from which to build. We as developers fully understand the importance of player feedback and are looking forward to interacting with the community to develop a game we all like.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We have no timeline for an official cut off but it may extend to approximately 12 months.”

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

“We envision a game that requires strategy, quick decision making, and a fun challenge. The intent is to add additional features as they are developed to include player customization, additional maps, more weapons, ADS, polishing, interface updates, and more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“J.A.W.S is currently in it's infancy and is only single player. Most of the core mechanics we planned to implement in the game have been developed and included in this current build. Many of the core bugs have been exterminated through pre-alpha testing.

At this point, there is no "end-game". While additional game modes are planned for future releases, the player can only play our "Survival" game mode where they attempt to stay alive as long as they can.

The first level, "Compound", is fully built. The player can currently explore all sections of the level that were intended to be accessible by the player.

The majority of the weapons are already in play within this current build, but additional weapons are planned in future iterations.

There is no "true" ADS currently implemented, but it is a high priority and currently in development.

There is a single enemy with different attributes in this current build. However, we have already begun development on other models that will contain unique attributes.

Please refer to the "About This Game" section for more details on current features.”

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

“The price is not planned to change upon full release. Our goal is to make a simple and free game for the whole community to enjoy.

Micro-transactions may be included in a future iteration, but we will take great care to keep them from negatively effecting the gameplay.”

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

“Too many times we have seen early-access games go under due to bad management of community feedback. We understand the criticality of including player feedback in development but not ruining a game in hopes to please everyone. Our intent is to be actively involved with discussions, reviews, and general player feedback. We look forward to seeing how we can make J.A.W.S an exciting game for everyone.”

What's been going on?

Happy humpday, killers!

It's been about 5 months since our last update. Far too long. However, we have been hard at work during this period.

J.A.W.S was intially intended to be a "jump into the river" test for us new developers. It is our first release and we wanted to get our feet wet and develop a plan more atuned to the player, you. We have received a lot of feedback and we appreciate that. We are using this feedback to focus on areas that need the most improvement.

You may be asking yourself, "Self, what have they been working on these past 5 months?". Good question, glad you asked. We have been working on completely redoing the base code for J.A.W.S. This new foundation will allow for many new features and easier integration to include all areas of development.

Unfortunately, these changes take a long time for a team of 2.5 but we're working hard and haven't given up.

As always, we appreciate the feedback. This is a learning process for us and we have learned a lot.

Stay frosty!

Love,

Randy

About This Game

Story:

Recently, military drug experiments were ongoing to develop stronger and fearless soldiers – in essence, the perfect soldier. A new, injectable drug was developed to achieve this goal. Short term tests proved stable and consistent. The effects eliminated emotional responses, inhibited pain receptors, and established a primal state of increased aggression and instinct to kill.

Under wartime pressure to produce results, the brass demanded all test subjects be injected before long term testing was complete. Over time, the effects caused permanent brain damage locking the subject in the modified state without a need for more injections. The administration lost control of the project and the test subjects turned on the staff, killing all who remained.

Your mission is to destroy all test subject and end this experiment for good, if it doesn’t end you first.
