What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Black Paradox is already in a playable state and has enough content to make it fun and catching. We plan to release new content with regular updates, to make the game grow with its community! Also, as the game isn't in its final version yet, it will be sold at a discount for the EA duration!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in EA state for as long as it takes for it to be considered complete. Ideally speaking, it'll be from 3 to 5 months.”

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

“In the complete version of the game we'd like to have at least 50+ powerups, 30+ weapons and increase the enemies to at least 80.
Also, we're planning alternative and secret bosses and endings and we want to add at least one more playable character.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At this point in the development we have:
-15+ powerups
-15+ weapons
-10+ drones
-50+ enemies”

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

“We will be selling the game at a discount for the duration of the EA.”

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

“We'd like to create a community via email and Discord, collect feedbacks and have a monthly contest to collect users’ ideas. The best ones will gladly be implemented in future updates!
