What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The main goal of Early Access is to involve the Steam community in the development process and to get their feedback and suggestions for the game.

Since the very beginning of the project I’ve worked closely with players and iterated with them on the game features, balancing, etc.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The early access should last between 3 and 6 months depending on player feedback and the amount of content that will be added.”

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

“The plan is to tweak the existing game mechanics if necessary and add more content:
  • New game modes (endure, domination, capture the flag, etc)
  • New game mechanics (items, hotspots, bot abilities, etc)
  • Co-op online multiplayer
  • More AI parameters

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early access version already has all the core gameplay mechanics implemented and balanced in a polished state and free from major bugs.
The current version includes:
  • Visual AI editor
  • Bot squad customization (4 bot classes, unlockable skins)
  • Tutorial missions
  • 60 missions solo campaign
  • Online multiplayer (ranked, unranked, tournaments and private matches)
  • Sandbox mode (setup both teams, test counter-strategies)
  • PC/Android cross-platform play

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

“The current plan is for the price to remain the same, subject to player feedback.”

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

“I will give regular updates on the development process and I will be actively listening to player feedback before and after each new version.
Players will be able to vote for the next iteration priorities (tweaks, new content, etc) through in-game polls.”
