What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are launching The Endless Mission on Early Access because we want to involve the community as soon as possible in the development of the game. The Endless Mission is a creation sandbox game with a powerful toolset enabling multi-genre game creation that can be shared with the community. The Early Access community will be critical in helping inform what tools we should introduce and what genres we should explore next.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate The Endless Mission coming out of Early Access in 2021.”

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

“The full version of The Endless Mission will see additional content and creation assets being released, cooperative and multiplayer play and creation modes, enhancements to the Editor that allow for more creative exploration, and a continued expansion of the narrative.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of The Endless Mission will feature a rich narrative adventure as well as our Editor toolset. The adventure mode begins to tell the story of The Endless Mission and will introduce players to characters that they'll interact with and the tools that they'll need to build and create. Speaking of which, the Editor will give players the opportunity to dive instantly into tools and begin creating their own games using a powerful set of tools.”

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

“The price of The Endless Mission is going to increase as key features are introduced into the game. However, if a player has already purchased the game then those new features will come at no extra cost. Once you buy it, it's yours.”

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

“The community is one of the primary reasons that we are choosing to launch The Endless Mission on Early Access. This is an ambitious game in terms of the range of games and possibilities that can be created, the scope of the story, and power of the creation tools. Our closed beta proved that having a dedicated community along with us on this journey is going to help inform the direction of the game’s overall development.

Currently, we’re planning on having developer blog updates, hosting weekly themed challenges that highlight community-generated content, and working with the community so they can inform us about what features and game genres they want to see next.”

About This Game

The Endless Mission is a community-driven creation sandbox game where you can play, hack, and create within a world...within a world...within a world, eventually making and sharing your own games...with the world. You heard it in the iconic trailer voice, right? It’s ok to admit it.

Play through an ever expanding collection of video game genres as an unfolding adventure pulls back the curtain on a larger world than you can imagine and what goes on behind the scenes in your favorite games.

Build it better, faster, stronger - all with a simple slide or click. Modify game elements ranging from speed and health to enemy awareness in real-time just by making use of The Endless Mission’s integrated hacking mechanic, called Lenses. Answer the question of what happens when you take the avatar from a platformer and drop her into the middle of an RTS or what could possibly go wrong if you try and befriend an angry pack of weasels.

Super phenomenal nearly cosmic power! The toolset for The Endless Mission’s powerful Editor gives you the opportunity to manipulate levels and assets to create whatever it is you can imagine. Hacking, modifying, and creating games...while you play the games! Minds? Blown.

Make something awesome and upload it to our content portal so that your friends and people around the world have the chance to play what you’ve made! You could even be featured in our Hall of Celebration when you become a part of our community and play games the likes of which the world has never imagined.
