What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Beavers Be Dammed entered early access because we, as a team of 6 students, need your feedback to improve and expand upon our game. The game is currently about 8 weeks in development and the time is right to bring Beavers Be Dammed to the players to find out what you think of our goofy beavers. Together with the community we want to shape the future of Beavers Be Dammed by adding new features and content tailored to your feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Early Access will end before the end of August 2018.”

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

“The full version of the game will contain around 30 levels, new features like hazards & Steam Achievements and polished existing features. At the moment the goal of Early Access is generating feedback and using that feedback to polish what we have. The next step is to create more content with new hazards and features in tight collaboration with the community.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of the Early access version contains a two player local co-op mode with full controller support. In this version the player can expect 8 levels full of goofy beaver madness, including a level progression system with STEAM cloud integration.”

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

“The game will likely be priced and/or have priced features after Early Access.”

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

“The community is the key factor of why we decided to have Beavers Be Dammed in Early Access. We need you, the players, to play our game and tell us what you think, positive or negative. Using our STEAM Community Hub, we will be in touch with you guys by teasing you with new content and asking you important questions about the game's state and future.”

An update from the Beavers be Dammed team!

Hello beavers, hoomans and otter animals,

We wanted to give you an update on our progress, plans for the future and the current state of the game and team working on it.

As you might have noticed things have slowed down over the past few weeks and we want to be as open as possible about the reasons why. Most of you know Beavers be Dammed started out as a school project which, as all good things tend to do, has come to an end. This means all six of us have moved on from working 40 hours a week (and most weeks even more) on the game to working towards our graduation.

This means we have to find a new workflow that allows us to work on distance from each other while still making progress and keeping each other up to date. So far we noticed this is harder than we though it would be.

The next update will include an options menu, key binding and the option to press the button to hold the log once instead of having to hold it (this will will help players currently having problems with key ghosting while playing on a keyboard). The next update will also fix some known bugs and feature other small improvements.

After this we are going to work on beaver customization and redo the level progression. We are currently investigating a system in which successfully completing a level will unlock the next and stars are used to unlock hats and possibly other fun things for your beavers.

In the meantime we will also be working on new levels and obstacles as well as looking into the most requested feature so far: online multiplayer.

Last but not least we want thank all of you guys for playing our game and sharing it with your friends. We do our best to make Beavers be Dammed the best game we possibly can and your support and feedback has been extremely valuable. So don’t hesitate to send us a message if you have an idea or feedback.

Thank you for your understanding and we promise we will do our best to keep these long, serious posts without puns to a minimum.

Beavers Be Dammed update 1: 4 new levels, an intro animation and more!

Dear beavers, hoomans and otter animals,

The morning smells like wood, which can only mean one thing: today is a tree-riffic day. Beavers Be Dammed has been updated! The update contains four new levels full of dangerous lasers. Aside four new crazily fun levels, the game now also contains an introductory animation that will show you why our beavers started stealing in the first place. Of course, the update also features a few QoL features such as Steam Cloud Save support and numerous bug fixes.

As always, have fun stealing.

Thank you,

Harry Beaver
