What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We wish to foster a community through feedback and play testing. The game is close to completion, so we will appreciate all the help we receive. This is pixelCast Game's first title, so any early adoption will undoubtedly increase the quality of the final product.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until the end of the summer. We want to gather as much feedback as possible before release.”

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

“Full Workshop support for level builder. At least 140 hand-crafted levels (currently 60). A boss for each world (7 total). Additional movement objects that changes gameplay. Full suite of music and sounds. And of course, continued polish to the movement mechanics.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Fully functioning level editor. 3 difficulty worlds with 20 levels each. Steam leaderboard integration. Rebindable controls. A continually iterated movement system that caters to the gamer who desires to always improve.”

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

“Yes! We would like to reward those who help us now by offering a smaller price. The game is not fully complete, so you will be buying an unfinished product. The current Early Access price reflects that. The price will increase when we make a final release.”

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

“We want you to be involved as much as you want. The best thing a community member can do is contact us on Discord or one of our many social media websites. We are looking for all types of feedback. Even the smallest critiques can change the game in a big way.”
