What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The 100 levels are available, and the game has been in Alpha for more than 7 years, on Windows and other platforms (including Linux). A lot of feedback from users has helped to make the game better.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be released in the first half of 2024. It's time to finish it!”

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

“As we are reaching the end of the Early Access, the last pieces of development mostly include more polish: sound design, better art for Cube Chan, and several cutscenes for the different endings.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game's content is 95% done and the game is 99% bug free. Expect to see no crashes, no lags, no bugs and no glitches. The game has been in Alpha for 7 years (with a few years of pause), showcased in around 10 events.”

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

“Price should be the same after Early Access. If you have another opinion, feel free to say so in the Steam discussions!”

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

“There is an integrated 3-questions form after each level, so you can say if you liked the level, if it was interesting and if the difficulty was right (or not). Just checking the boxes is a huge help, and if you have more complex feedback, the forums and discussions are open to talk about it.”
