What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are an indie company and we want you - our community - to help us with ideas and development to follow your wishes and imagination about New Dawn. We already had some difficulties during development and there will be many more, we are aware of this. Any innovative project is an amalgamation of ideas and efforts. A champion product does not emerge without a challenge. Despite all the hassles we are determined to give the best of our abilities to this project. And we are sure we can reach big things, together with you, with your help and support you are giving us.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to leave early access by 2020”

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

“We have our foundations built, lots of the hard engine work is out of the way. However our current content is very much a work in progress.

The Future Development Goals
  • Map Size

  • Wrecks

  • Fishing

  • Cattle Paddocks

Other content listed on the store page
Now with your support, we plan to build an even more unique and exciting experience filled with fun moments. We promise to use the Early Access period to listen to you and your feedback in order to develop New Dawn.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At the moment, New Dawn is in Pre-Beta stage, many game mechanics are complete and we have a solid base in programming, which allows us to add new content quickly. The game is stable and performs quite well. In its current state you are much more likely to find a game breaking balance issue than a game breaking bug.Many core mechanics and features are present and polished.
