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?

“The first episode is completely playable from start to finish, but we need to know what still can be improved in terms of the story, flow and overall gameplay elements, as well as bugs or lack of tutorial. Of course, we played the game countless times ourselves, but we're a small team and there's only so much we can test. We need your help to finish Elea!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Elea will be in Early Access for 2-3 months. During this period, we'll be paying close attention to your feedback through the Steam Community hub and engage in conversation with all of you! We’re not going to abandon this game in Early Access, we just need your last bit of feedback to do this right!”

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

“Right now, episode 1 is 80% done. The remaining 20% will be added in the full version of the game. On top of that, the game will be optimized according to your feedback during the Early Access period. The final version’s story will not be drastically different from the Early Access version, it’ll just be a more polished version.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is currently 80% done. All we need right now is your feedback to polish the game! There might be bugs, or you might get stuck not knowing what to do. These are the things we’d like to know! As said before, the story won’t be drastically different in the final version, but rather more polished.”

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

“Even though the game is already 80% complete, the game has a discounted price during the Early Access period to thank all the fans for testing and helping us finish the game. The final pricing is still being discussed. We can’t stress enough that we can’t do this without you!”

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

“During the Early Access period we'll be very active on the Steam Community hub and our social media. We'll discuss everything that you like or don’t like about the game. This way, we believe we can use your feedback to finish and polish Elea and do this right!”

Patch v0.7 is live! Biggest patch since Early Access launch

Hello everyone!

Today is the day, patch v0.7 is live! The biggest patch since the Early Access launch. Now, as I mentioned in a previous post, your old save file will not work anymore in this version. Don't be afraid though! for all of you who want to complete their current playthrough, we added an option to launch the old version in which your save file will still work.

Here's how you access the new v0.7 update:
  • Right click on Elea in your Steam library
  • Select properties
  • Go to BETAS
  • Select elea_early_access_0_7_build-
  • Close properties
  • Launch Elea and select early access 0.7
Now, if you want to play v0.6 again, head back into the BETAS tab and opt out of any Betas. Launch the game and select 'Play Elea'.

This way you have the choice of launching v0.6 (in which your old save will work) or v0.7 (in which you'll have to start a new game). This option will remain in the game for 7 days, so on Friday the 22nd, the game will be fully updated to v0.7.

Now, onto the good stuff! You can find the full patch notes right here:
  • Fixed the bug when Oculus app is opening when starting the game
  • Unlocked FPS option now supports 120 fps
  • New auto-save checkpoints are implemented in the Recovery chapter
  • Additional and improved objective hints
  • Completely new how to play help screen is available in the settings menu and at the start of the game
  • Various performance updates in regards to the streaming system in the game
  • New voice over for some characters
  • Better screen space reflections (SSR) when effects in the settings menu are on ULTRA. The higher version of SSR can decrease your performances with up to 10FPS. Effects settings on HIGH in the new 0.7 build are comparable in quality to Ultra in the older builds.
  • New voice lines for Elea - some of them can potentially help with the game progression
  • Fixed the bug in which Elea can stuck in the first room in the house chapter
  • Faster animations for the interaction icons in the game
  • Improved and completely new scenes in the game
  • Updated localization
  • Fixed the bug when after you finish the Mars level, two Alice's at the same time appeared
  • Opportunity for infinite running in Mars chapter
  • Increased sprint duration before having to recover in the Recovery chapter
  • New and updated sound fx
  • Over 100 small bug-fixes and updates
  • Fixed the bug for zooming with the mouse right button in the House chapter
I'd love to hear what you think of the new stuff we added! If there's anything else you'd like to let us know, please do! Write a comment down below or start a new discussion in the Community Hub.

For now, I wish all of you a great weekend!

Important save game announcement

Hi all!

Just a quick announcement about your saved files. We've got the next patch ready to go, but due to migrating the game to Unreal Engine 4.19 and Xbox certification, we had to make edits to the save system in the game.

In the end, this means that saves made in the current version of the game will not work anymore once the update hits. Don't be afraid, though! We're going to give you an option to finish your game in the old version and also be able to play the game in the new version.

Details will be shared once the update drops. For now, see ya!

About This Game

Elea: Memories

Elea is a surreal sci-fi adventure game in which you play as space scientist Elea. In 2073, Earth was struck by a horrid childhood disease and Elea’s husband Ethan joined an expedition to colonize Solace, a habitable exoplanet, to save humanity from extinction. The interstellar ship he was on, Pilgrimage, went radio silent shortly after it reached planet Solace. Thirteen years later, Elea joins a recovery mission to investigate the faith of the expedition. What follows is a wondrous journey through space.


  • Unravel a rich, touching story inspired by books of classic sci-fi writers
  • Submerge yourself in amazing graphics powered by Unreal Engine 4
  • Discover gorgeous space environments, spectacular vistas and detailed interiors
  • Expect the unexpected on this curious journey through outer space


Elea is a game that takes the player on the deeply personal journey of a woman, whose life is marked by loss, grief and self-accusation in the aftermath of a global pandemic that turned her youngest boy into a raging psychopath. Luckily, an Earth-like exoplanet within an achievable distance from the Solar system had been recently discovered. Pooling volunteers from around the globe, a first-of-a-kind interstellar spacecraft was built and sent to colonize the yet unexplored planet. The gargantuan ship was named Pilgrimage, embodying the hopes of all of the humanity. To everyone’s dismay, shortly after a successful arrival, the Pilgrimage went on total radio silence. What caused it remains a mystery.

13 years later, research starship Recovery has arrived on site to investigate the fate of the expedition. The player takes the role of the space scientist River Elea Catherine Jones. She is driven above all by a personal goal – to find her husband Ethan, who occupied a prominent position on the Pilgrimage’s scientific crew. By putting the character up against events and phenomena which are beyond human grasp, the game aims to defy the conventional notions of personal accountability, choice and meaning of life. It is a story about our fragility as a species, about finding solace through surrender.
