“Probably a year or so, but right now it's difficult to say.”

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

“The full version will have more levels & features, many of which are in the pipeline and even some that we have not even invented yet!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Hive Quest is in early development. When the Early access version is made available here on Steam we want to ensure as far as possible its stability and general smoothness of game play. There will be a host of features included, but these will be subject to enhancement, removal or change depending on how our own experience and community feedback.”

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