What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Furious Seas has received a lot of positive feedback and constructive comments at shows and events that we've attended this past year. Our community has helped us better focus the efforts of our small, but dedicated indie VR studio. We want to open up this opportunity to a wider audience so that more people can preview the game and help us build the best version of Furious Seas that we're able to!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to transition out of Early Access towards the end of 2018.”

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

“Our core focus prior to the release of the full version, will be to complete the single-player campaign and increase the overall quality of the experience to make it more enjoyable. We'll be listening to our community and adding more content and gameplay based on what we hear from everyone and the development time we have available.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version currently has the core ship and combat mechanics in place, two early-stage levels, and two bosses in the single-player campaign for players to battle against.”

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

“Our goal is to make sure our community feels that they are receiving a lot of value when they purchase our game. We may price the game differently following Early Access, based on community feedback and the amount of content we add during Early Access.”

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

“For us, Early Access is about actively working together with our community to create something that wouldn't be possible otherwise. We want to hear about your thoughts, comments, feedback, ideas, and any problems you come across during your time with Furious Seas. Let us know through the channels below, and we'll do our best to quickly look after anything sent our way.

The goal is to have a full version that everyone involved can be proud of. We'll need your help to get there!”
