What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Considering the particularity of the gameplay we would like to achieve and the time to reach the full understanding of game dynamics, it makes sense for us to allow our fans and the wider public access to the game while it is still in development. This will allow us to improve on the interactions and features to reach an optimal and balanced gameplay, so that every role in the game can be fulfilling.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are anticipating for One Step Ahead to remain in Early Access until the middle of 2020.”

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

“In the full version, we are anticipating a wider variety of maps and eventually game modes. Furthermore, we aim to develop dedicated servers and other features that the community might vote upon.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently One Step Ahead is in a stage where all the roles can be played as intended. There is only one map, and one player needs to host the game.”

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

“It has yet to be determined whether the price of the game will change during or after early access.”

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

“We have opened a discord to gather direct feedback and bug reports to improve the game, available at the address https://discord.gg/xG5GVKQ.”

About This Game

The Story

One Step Ahead is a multiplayer simulation game where you can choose to play the role of a fugitive, military or a K-9 unit.


The story is rather simple. There is a small number of fugitives that need to exfiltrate. They can use a map and a GPS to get to the possible exfil points, and set a certain number of traps to cover their back. On their tracks, there is a small number of K-9 units that can use their canines to find the fugitives. The bulk of the chasers is then made up of a military team that works closely with the K-9 units.

The goal is for players to fill a role and think strategically. I encourage a simulative approach and act as you would do in real life. If you're interested in FPS with a lot of firing action, this game might not be for you. Instead, a creative and realistic approach can offer you simulative real life scenarios.

Roles

As a Fugitive
You need to complete your goal while staying alive. You will be tracked down so hide in the shadows and lose your tracks. Even better: learn how to use them to ambush the pursuers.

As a K-9 unit
Everyone counts on you and your K-9 to track down the fugitives. Treat your dog as the precious resource they are, and ensure that they don't get harmed. Without them, it'd be almost impossible to find the fugitives in these dense forests.

As a Military
You know what to do, and you know it well. You're the backbone of this chase, and you won't fail.

Early Access Warning

There currently isn't a dedicated server to play on. One of the players can host the game for other players to join in.
