What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“BugOut is a really big game and we are a very small team. Gathering feedback from a larger base of players will help us understand what's working, what needs improvement and, most importantly, make sure the game is enjoyable on every level.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“With the features that we have planned for the game the estimated time for full release is around 16 months. That could change depending on the features and popularity of the game itself. If the community really likes the game and we are growing and the community has requested more be added to the game then it could take longer to reach full release. “Basically - until we're sure to offer our customers a great, bug-free and high-value product. This can only be achieved with a big response from the community, lots of feedback and continuous tests. With such data collected, we will work hard to develop the game, implement requested features and then continue to add new updates to the full version”

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

“The Early Access will only have the first part of the game to play, once we get the first part polished and working with little to no bugs, we will then start on the Major disaster that will take place in the game, that will change the way the entire world looks and feels. This is the main part of the game and what will challenge you to survive any way you can. At the end result we want a well polished, finished, exciting fun game to enjoy.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently offers a single-player deep mountain survival experience, with some game features like crafting, trapping, exploring, building and just trying to stay alive. The day and night cycles along with the dynamic weather system is all working beautifully and add to the feel of the game.”

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

“Yes, as new content is added the price will increase. Those that choose to get it now will save in the future.”

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

““Our goal is to work together with the members of the A2G community. We will keep our players informed of our plans and progress through our communication channels: Steam forum, our website, Discord, and Twitter . We will be listening to the voice of the community and we are looking forward to constructive discussions aimed at creating the gameplay experience that we will all enjoy.”

Website and Roadmap

We have just rebuilt our website to be much cleaner, with tabs linking to our steam forums and store page, there are also links to our discord as well. The 2 best ways to communicate with us is through Steam and Discord, https://discord.gg/z5S5Gac

Many people have asked about a road map, and even though we have most of our ideas all in order, its hard to find time to create a public road map, but we have started to build one, and will improve on it over the length of the project. This is a live road map and can change , and will change several times through EA as we work with the community on features.

Short Description

A Modern Day Survival Simulator


The year is 2019, the news is crawling with fear mongering stories of things to come, the end is near, climate change, WW3, Asteroids, Civil Unrest and anything else they can think of, but in the background, you can see the government preparing for something, but what. You decide its time to go off the grid and prepare for the worst.



Welcome to BugOut.


The fear of something major coming soon has taken its effect on you. You feel like you need to do something to prepare yourself to survive the unknown catastrophe. You sell all of your personal belongings and head off to the mountains to start a new life leaving this old one behind. With only a backpack and a few things to eat you really don't have much to start with, after hitching a ride into the Appalachians, you are dropped off at a mountainside dirt road, your adventure starts here.

Before you can do anything you will need to get some experience in bugging out. The game starts off in the Appalachian Mountains at a mountainside trading post. Talk to people at the trading post to learn how to get started. Here you can buy some starter gear and head off into the mountains. You can freely hike around the mountains and learn survival skills, or you can accept one of the challenges from the Trading post to receive a reward and maybe some extra skill points if you complete the challenge. As you gain more experience, you will be able to craft more items do more things. While on your Hiking and Camping you can gather extra herbs and other items, and sell them to the trader for some extra cash. The cash can then be used to better your gear. After you have reached enough experience, the piece of land beside the trading post will be available to you at a price. Raise some money and buy the land to start building a full out BugOut home and prepare for the upcoming world-changing event. You can even make it completely self-sufficient and Off-grid with solar power and a water well. If you want you can also choose to grow and jar your own food or use the money to buy long-term storable food. Upgrade your home to survive many different scenarios or if you really want to go all out build a bunker, then stockpile your bunker with everything you think you will need.Be sure get a radio or PC so you can keep up with what is going on, you never know when the time will come that you will need to BugOut.

Will you be prepared?


Prepare as much as you can, an event can happen at random times. 
Increase your skills in hunting, fishing, herbalism, building and much more. The better your skill level, the easier it will be to survive when the disaster strikes.


Disaster Events will not be available during stage 1 or 2 of Early access



When a world disaster strikes you will need to use all you have learned to survive the event. 


( Example : If a nuclear war was to happen, you would have to be in a sealed living area, with enough food, water and other resources you would need to survive the fallout, and then enough to use after the event until you can acquire more, plus you would need gear to test for radiation and explore infected areas) This is only one example, other events may affect you in an opposite way. 
After the main event has happened at you come out of your home or bunker, you will be faced with lots of new challenges and a huge open world to explore. Stay in the mountains if you can still sustain, or explore the towns and cities, travel around and gather more resources to survive. Depending on the event you may have to deal with AI players, or different types of animals, you just don't know, thats why it is best to prepare all you can before the event.
