What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are looking for feedback from the Steam Community while working on more features.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It will stay in Early Access for about one or two months.”

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

“In the full version there will be more features. Like Leaderboards, Achievements, Single-Player tutorials, Game Modes (Tournament, ...), more playable characters and stages.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the current state the game is working for multiplayer (local) and multiplayer (online). It is fully enjoyable.

There are three stages to select. Four playable characters to select from. Bombs that explode more in specific directions. Each player has a unique Special Skill. When the timer runs out, the game gets even harder. See Description for more information.

The addition of additional features in the future will give it more to enjoy though.”

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

“The game will be slightly more expensive after Early Access.”

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

“We plan to involve the Steam Community through the discussion forums in the Community Hub. feedback will be highly appreciated.”
