What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Planetary Dustoff is a very community driven game and we want to bring that community in as early as possible to help shape the future of the game. We hope that the community will bring valuable input and aid us in making a really awesome game. We also want to extend the mod support with the wishes from the community and we think that Early Access is an excellent opportunity to do this.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in Early Access for approximately 6 to 12 months, but we will take the time needed to make Planetary Dustoff as good as it can be.”

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

“We plan to expand the game with lots of new content. We also hope that the community can aid us by voicing their wishes for the final version. This includes, but is of course not limited to:

  • More planets and environments
  • More enemies
  • More bosses
  • More weapons
  • More items

We also plan expanded modding support to aid the community in modifying and improving the gameplay as well as creating all new types of planets and stories.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version is fully playable and moddable. It contains three full planets and bosses as well as over 100 different weapons and items. We are continuously expanding the game and expecting to release more planets and bosses as well as many more weapons, items and features during Early Access.”

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

“The game may be priced slightly higher once it's out of Early Access.”

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

“We plan to be very active with the community during Early Access. We will be involved in the Community Hub here on Steam, as well as our Discord server and the official Planetary Dustoff Wiki. We look forward to seeing all the amazing mods the community will come up with and add to the game.”
