What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Releasing in Early Access means I can focus my time and efforts on features that matter most to the community. I want to be responsive to suggestions and requests. Your feedback matters to me!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I expect the game to be released officially within a year.”

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

“Here are some of the features under consideration:

  • More levels
  • More weapons
  • More multiplayer game modes
  • Dedicated server utility
  • Steam Achievements
  • Steam Cloud
  • Steam Workshop
  • Controller support
  • Additional language support
  • Undo / redo in editor

See the Steam forum for more details.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully functional but it's a little rough around the edges. This means there might be a few bugs or some features that aren't very intuitive. Some of the levels might seem a little bare. Some enemies or weapons may be a little unbalanced. The UI might not play nice with some screen resolutions.”

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

“The price will be lower during Early Access to reward early adopters, compensate for possibly buggy or missing functionality, and incentivise community feedback.”

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

“I will remain open and transparent about the goals and progress of development via the Steam forum, and I will read and respond to bug reports and suggestions from the community. The feedback I receive will directly influence development decisions and priorities.”
