What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As the developer of "Maximum Action" I believe Early Access fits my game for a multitude of reasons. The core of "Maximum Action" is based around first-person experience and satisfying shooting. It is extremely important to me that the community has a say in what aspects of the game promote this goal. Early Access perfectly satisfies this requirement as it allows for "Maximum Action" to quickly and conveniently adapt new features as well as change direction. The gameplay of "Maximum Action" is also physics-based, meaning that user actions can have a very large number of results. Currently a significant percentage of these results are bugs, and Early Access allows for users to still experience the game while issues are resolved behind the scenes.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“A general estimation could be anywhere from 1-2 years. A completely reliable projection is uncertain at this point as community interactive development could require features that are much more extensive and require more time than currently planned.”

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

“The full version of "Maximum Action" will include
*More levels
*More weapons
*More enemies
*More user customization
*Steam Workshop support

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of "Maximum Action" is a satisfying and unique single-player first-person shooter with a focus on player creativity to stylishly shoot and kill in a plethora of ways. Influenced by hong kong action and heroic bloodshed, every shootout is a spectacle. Players can enter levels with any weapon of their choice and begin to experiment with the unique features "Maximum Action" has to offer. From active ragdolls, controllable slow motion, dismemberment, dual wielding, diving, punching, and kicking; "Maximum Action" is a first-person experience that offers a large array of options and movement that can be chained together for destructive and action-packed gameplay. Levels are well crafted but linear. Further, "Maximum Action" makes up for level linearity with its multitude of outcomes. The game is fully playable and almost all main core mechanics are realized. Where "Maximum Action" remains unfinished is in the content of levels, user customization, save files, and persisting bugs.
Refer to the "About this" section for a full description and list of features.”

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

“Most likely the finished game will be priced 25-35% higher than the early access.”

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

“The development of "Maximum Action" will involve the community through the implementation of feedback from Discord, Twitter, Youtube, Reddit, and Steam Reviews related to the game. Communication with the developer will be streamlined through these social media sites as well as email and others. The community can also participate in the future implementation of the steam workshop through custom levels, weapons, and other mods.”
