What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Star Valor already has a lot of content and a very playable state, but I want to engage with the community to help polish the game and decide what features to add before the full release, and for that, giving Early Access supporters a lower price.
As an indie game, the players feedback is even more important in this phase, so I plan to use the Steam forums frequently, maybe with some collaborators.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“12 to 18 months.”

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

“Besides polishing the game and it's current features, adding more quests, equipment, weapons and ship models, I plan to include the following:

Ship Crew

Every spaceship bigger than a Corvette will need a minimum crew, which will operate in different functions of the ship. Each crew member will have his own level, experience and skills.

Mega-structures

Really big (alien?) bases to raid. You will be able to enter theses bases with smaller ships to raid it from the inside, kind of like dungeons on MMOs.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • Open World exploration on a procedural galaxy
  • Dynamic and easy to learn combat system
  • Craft your own weapons
  • 100+ different equipment to use in your ship
  • 40+ spaceship models
  • Chose new abilities as you level up
  • Story and procedural quest system
  • 7 factions to interact with

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

“Yes, Early Access price is lower, the plan is to increase the price around 20-30% for the full release.”

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

“The community will help to improve the game by giving suggestions, like new items or ship models, reporting BUGs, balancing the game, helping with translation / localization and general game feedback.”
