What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is a great opportunity for the players and the developers! The developers get feedback and can change the game to fit the needs of the players and the players have the possibility to improve the game to improve their own experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Not all planned features are implemented yet and there might be other features, requested by the community, which will be implemented, before the end of early access. The game won't be stay in early access for years, we are talking about 4-6 months until the end of early access.”

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

“Of course, the full version will have less bugs and run more stable. One major thing I want to improve is the performance, to allow even larger battles. There will be more content and the gameplay will be improved. How the game will exactly look like in the future depends pretty much on the community.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At the moment, there are many different gamemodes, content and features in game, but not everything that was planned is in game. The game itself runs quite good, but it needs some polishment and balancing, as well as bug fixes for old and upcoming features. But in general the game is well playable at the moment.”

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

“This depends pretty much on the state of the game after early acces. For instance, if were will be a multiplayer after the early access, the price will raise a bit to pay servers, etc.
But actually there are no price changes planned.”

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

“As mentioned in previous questions, community feedback is really important and the community will have a strong influence on the direction of development.”
