What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I'm releasing this game through Early Access for 2 reasons

1) To help get feedback from the public on the current state of the game, feedback on any bugs found, issues on different hardware, over all impressions as well as ideas on improving the game.

2) To get exposure for a crowd funding round happening soon to help finish the campaign mode of the game, as well as improved graphics and sound.

As a 1 person indie development "team" getting early public feedback is essential to getting this game to where I want it to be, and I see Early Access as the best way of getting the feedback I need.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I expect this game to be in Early Access for the next 2 months while bugs and features are worked out and the Campaign mode is worked on.

The Campaign mode may not be completed before Survivor is removed from Early Access, this part will be available as a DLC”

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

“The full version will have the Campaign mode enabled as well as improved graphics and sound”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Survival Mode is nearing completion, but will still contain bugs as it still needs more testing on multiple hardware setups.”

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

“The final version of Outer Rim: Survivor will be kept as a free game, but the Campaign missions will be a paid DLC.”

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

“I would like the community to help guide the direction of the game. I'm very open to ideas on improving the game flow and features.

Direct feedback is welcome and encouraged on thoughts and improvements to the game.”

About This Game

Welcome to The Outer Rim, where fast paced action and space combat meet.

The Outer Rim: Survivor is an early access version giving you a taste of what is to come. Play the Survivor missions where you'll be constantly bombarded with enemies to attack, and be attacked by - How long you can last is the question as these missions never end. The Campaign mode (single player mission based game play) will be added as a DLC once completed.

A range of missions are available for you to try for free and give feedback while I further develop the game.

Take control of 5 different space ships with 9 different weapons flying in a full 3D universe. Missions include: protect your command ships, take out enemy command ships, and protect bomber runs. The missions take place in a mix of locations including space & planets.

Collect power ups by taking out enemies ships, giving you a range of items to help you last longer - extra missiles, new weapons, flares, nukes, multi-shot missiles and more.

Command your Wingmen (on certain missions) to help you last longer - they can attack the targets you specify, defend you when you're in trouble, just tell them what you want them to do. They've got your back!
