What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Nova 1492 is a unique RTS(Real-Time Strategy) online game with RPG elements and it’s been rebuilding for the Steam.
Currently 4 of the development team are working on the game and thus we have to accomplish this project with limited time & resources.

It is very important for us to get the invaluable feedback from the players in order to figure out
optimal level design and game balance.

Consequently, Early access will allow us to improve the game mechanics, especially initial stages between 1~99 level and the balance between units which is crucial in RTS game.

We will review and respond to the feedback and the updates will be made to the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Two~three months for finalizing the stable & balanced contents we plan to do.”

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

“In the full version of the game, we plan to add more stages, Units and Parts.
Such as
- More parts options will be available to customize Player’s Unit
- The number of Combination for assembling parts will be increased.
- More game mode will be added like Hide and seek, Marathon and Great Melee.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the current version, player account 1~99 levels are available.
The Player can
- play Basic Tutorial.
- parts guide in preset map.
- use skill points for skill.
- play 4:4 battle mode with their own units which can be assembled for their strategies.”

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

“At this point we are not thinking about price policies but it is most likely that it’ll be a Free game(item purchase) after the full release.”

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

“We need early access as a place where we try to collect as much feedback as possible and see if any can be applied to the game. We already have social media for this game such as Facebook ( and we are going to track steam forums community feedback.”
