What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This game is developed by one person. I have been working on the game for almost a year now and I would like to show the players what has already been done. I would like to receive feedback from players and discuss new ideas. This is also my first game of this scale to be developed by myself.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I hope to finish the game in 8-10 months. However, this deadline may increase due to features or problems that may arise during this period.”

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

“The final version of the game will have features:
- multiple global map improvements: random events, meetings of other survivors, action of military, exploration of new areas
- leveling character
- change the time of day, night mechanics: lighting, aggressive zombies
- more buildings and the ability to improve already built objects
- more varieties of zombies with unique behavior
- more animals and more ways of hunting them
- transport: jeep, all-terrain vehicle, boat, helicopter
- special locations: the area of a meteorite, metropolis
- plot development: the ability to communicate with the military forces and leave the quarantined area
- better visual and audio effects
- Steam achievements ^_^”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is completely playable right now. Many mechanics of the sandbox are already working: the player can cook food, to search for and to drink water, explore global map, mine resources, produce materials, build a base, kill the zombies.

Of course, the game is not yet complete. It lacks many locations on the global map, some existing locations are still unfinished.
Many effects are placeholders, locations are missing a lot of objects.
I'll need time and maybe other people's help to add it to the game.”

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

“Yes, the price will rise in the future as new content will be added.”

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

“I'm open to all kinds of suggestions. I'll review everything you want in the game and I will do my best to make changes that would benefit the community.”
