Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Reason for Early Access is to collect feedback about the levels and gameplay overall, and to make sure that Voltage is game what players enjoy to play (is A.I clever enough, how about map design).

Creating a complete game will take time and we feel that we need feedback about the gameplay. We wan't also explore new ideas with our community and take the time we need to get every detail/map design right.

Early access also allows us to build and increase a community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We would evaluate that the approximate estimate in Steam is 6-29 months (after buy button is activated). The time may be even longer: for example if we receive huge amount of ideas about map design from our community and we start implementing ideas. It is possible to make a quite huge game with this engine, but we need more ideas from the community because it is possible that our imagination is limited.”

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

“The game engine evolves with speed, so full release will have many more levels and even more advanced A.I. than now. Buying this game now on this Early Access price you will get access our updates (new maps, game technical development...).

Final version will have at least 3 Episodes. Maybe even more, but at this point we can promise that the number of Episodes will be 3. Each episode have 4-10 sublevels.

If you buy Voltage on Early Access price from Steam, you receive new maps for free when we update them to the game and you don't need to pay anything extra.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have published version 6.108. Voltage was originally a peaceful place. But since the C-I advanced department of technology is trying to eliminate the player (read a plot in About this section ;) ) they bring a massive army of enemies inside the game. Thats why this FPS rampage gives you access to wide variety of different guns, which you can fight against enemies and bring peace back to Voltage.

This version (v.6.108.) of the game currently includes Episode 1 (which have 4 sublevels):

Sublevel 1: Tutorial Zone You start here. We found out that some players were unfamiliar about box pushing and using switches, so now you learn the game logic. On the Tutorial Zone, you can practice many important skills and get to know to the game. Remember that you can always ask help from the Steam Community Hub.

Sublevel 2: Hometown Actual game starts at your hometown, and your mission is to find Amiga 500 computer and start your adventure in AOSYS. After you have found computer, your journey in AOSYS starts. We noticed that many player was interesting to explore hometown on the first version, so now this level is even more bigger, including many houses and suprises...

Sublevel 3: Star Qruiser First mission is called 'Escape from the Star Cruiser': You are in a Star Cruiser. Seems that something has gone badly wrong and it's full of enemies (we don't reveal what kind of...). This level gives you about a 100-130 min gameplay. The game proceeds almost straightforwardly (spaceship is quite big) when you explore different parts of Star Cruiser and you desperate to escape... Boldly explore the Star Cruiser, who knows if you might even be able to find dinosaurs on their development section... [v.3.10 update makes Star Cruiser even bigger than previous version.]

Sublevel 4: Into the DesertYou have escaped from the Star Cruiser by using emergency shuttle. Unfortunately an error occurs and you find yourself from a burning hot desert. Try to find familiar town, or some vehicle to escape...

These Episodes will be added during the development process:

VoltageDinoLand: gives player about a 40-100 min gameplay, depends how much are you going to explore the DinoLand and complete your mission.

City of Voltage: In this level you explore suburbs and the main city. It gives you a 40-100 min gameplay.

We can assure that map sizes are huge and you can freely explore and move inside the map. Read more from About this section.”

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

“Yes. Voltage will retail for a cheaper entry price during Early Access with the intent to raise the price at full release. This is to reward and encourage those who buy Voltage during Early Access. Reason for higher price on full release is that the full release will contain more maps and possible new functions. Creating new maps will take time so we feel it is justified to increase price when game leaves Early Access.

Price can be increased a also during Early Access when we ship more content to the game (new maps, gameplay development etc).”

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

“All users can communicate with their ideas, feedback and questions about the game in the Steam forum of the game.

For example how to bring community ideas to the game:
  • community can help creating new maps by drawing a new map sketches as a .png files and then we here create new maps based to those sketches]
  • give tips what kind of buildings and enemies do they wan't to be placed in the maps]
  • community will also have the opportunity to influence the course of the storyline]
[/list]

It is important to note that when you buy this game, participation is not compulsory in any way. If you wan't you can just play the game and enjoy the new updates. Or you can wrote feedback and share your ideas.

It is up to you!

Loading times

Goooood news! We have found reason about "long" (about 1-4 min) loading times. Loading appears on transitions, when you go from sublevel to another. Biggest reason for loading time is cutscenes, game load cutscenes and that take a little time. This will be improved on the next update which base game gets. Demo has loading time too because every sublevel have cutscenes. When level starts there is no immediatelly action, enemy is not going to come and kill you immediately so while level loads, you can have a coffee, eat burrito etc.

About This Game





Inspired by the Amiga, Commodore 64 and PC '90s legends! Redneck Rampage, DukeNukem and Quake fans might find something familiar from this game, also Dino Crisis and Dinosaur Hunter fans. Graphically it is designed look like AAA Amiga game, however Voltage won't sent you back to the stone age, it is boosted with modern game features (which where not available 30 years ago..).





the small town of Frontier, Missouri, in the 1980s. A young man called Mark is having his summer holiday, the last summer before going to a college. Mark is our story hero, who is living in this idyllic small town, surrounded by a thick forests with a dozens of small lakes with crystal-clear water. This town even have famous American football league. But sometimes you can get bored even a burning hot sunny day like this, even a town like this.



that reason, Mark and his friends, Jesse, Benjamin and Kevin, are exploring scrap yard, where they tend to go secretly to look for all the special stuff, mostly parts of the mopeds and cars. The only employee in the scrap yard has gone to lunch break, and Mark knows that this is their only change to explore treasures in a crap yard...



old truck which have -as every car in this scrap yard- seemed to be in a traffic accident. Logo of the truck is badly damaged, but he can read some text in it, about "Co" and "International". He peek into the truck, and notice that most of the stuff is badly damaged. But deeper inside truck trunk he finds a prototype of VR-glasses and a floppy disk. Mark smuggle the glasses and a floppy disk to his home and to his surprise, he find out that the glasses are compatible with his Amiga 500. Quickly he realizes that the truck and all techie stuff were a property of C-I Advanced Technology Department, which does cooperation with a military.



that these glasses are capable to unlock incredible hidden features in Amiga 500, able to take full advantage of the Amiga's potential. He launches a game that extends beyond what the games is likely to do, a whole virtual universe, which is somehow connected to another paralled universe. A universe, where the development of computers wen't through other paths and Amiga is world second biggest and the most advanced computer system. Mark log in to interconnected virtual space called the AOSYS and real adventure begins...

While exploring incredible AOSYS game environment with his glasses, Mark doesn't know that technology department in the other site have noticed their visitor from another dimension and they try to do their best to track the player and get their glasses back... with a help of army...





Episode 1 at the moment and more Episodes in the near future, the game certainly offers value for money. Voltage was originally a peaceful place. But since the C-I Advanced Department of Technology is trying to eliminate the player they bring a massive army of enemies inside the game. Complete all Episode Sublevels* and bring peace back to the Voltage!

This version (v.6.108.) of the game currently includes Episode 1 with 4 Sublevels:

Sublevel 1: Tutorial Zone You start here. We found out that some players were unfamiliar about box pushing and using switches, so now you learn the game logic. On the Tutorial Zone, you can practice many important skills and get to know to the game. Remember that you can always ask help from the Steam Community Hub.

Sublevel 2: Hometown Actual game starts at your hometown, and your mission is to find Amiga 500 computer and start your adventure in AOSYS. After you have found computer, your journey in AOSYS starts. We noticed that many player was interesting to explore hometown on the first version, so now this level is even more bigger, including many houses and suprises...

Sublevel 3: Star Qruiser First mission is called 'Escape from the Star Cruiser': You are in a Star Cruiser. Seems that something has gone badly wrong and it's full of enemies (we don't reveal what kind of...). This level gives you about a 100-130 min gameplay.

    dr. Stephen J. McRegon, scientist, computer engineer, and something an a dreamer was asked to help a medium large computer company, to create a ultimate virtual reality system, which was ahead of time. And he did it. On year 1982 he created an open world game for Amiga personal computer, called AOSYS, Amiga operating system. AOSYS was capable to unlock incredible hidden features in Amiga 500, able to take full advantage of it's potential. Unfortunately it was never introduced to the markets in your dimension, where you read this message. Until this day came. McRegon found a way to blend space and time by simple breaking the law's of nature; He was sending radio waves Faster Than Light and that way broke the Cosmic Speed Limit. That maneuver opened a portal (which can be used only for sending small mass objects or voice), and hence deliver AOSYS to our dimension. For you all to play. You see, all physical objects, even you and your chair, exist in three dimensions. Everything has a width, and a high and a length. But there is another kind of length, a length in time.



    All characters and locations used in this game are fictitious in our universe and any resemblance to real persons, vehicles and places is purely coincidental.
