What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“A large amount of new content and features are planned. Gameplay that stems off the original mechanic of each players lantern revealing a specific colour. Experimenting with new mechanics and features. Extra block types and block functionality, level hazards, more co-operative level design elements, PVP, Arcade, Story, Weekly speedruns and leaderboards. We’re in the process of prototyping more mechanics that add different elements to the game which allows us to create more diverse levels. The game will be going through an artistic overhaul.
Because the game isn’t anywhere near complete and will be going through drastic changes early access is suitable due to foreseeable quality issues.
We would like to pivot based on the communities appropriate feedback and desires.”
