What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have big plans for Synth Riders, but we want to make sure we get the mechanics right first. In any rhythm game, the most important thing is for it to be fun and easy to pick up but challenging to master. Our goal is to get feedback on both the ease of use and the difficulty levels so we can optimize both. And of course, we want to make the game as fun to play as possible!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We would like to release a full version by the end of 2018! With your feedback, we can improve the mechanics, calibrate the difficulty levels, and ensure a polished finished product.”

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

“Our main plan is to add additional levels, but we wanted to make sure the levels we've created work well first. We also want to add more achievements, build out a global leaderboard, add additional note types, and even potentially add a level creator.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“From a gameplay perspective, the game is largely finished. All of the features currently listed in the "About This" section are currently implemented. Now our goal is to optimize the mechanics and difficulty levels, add additional songs, and potentially make it a more "social" experience with a leaderboard and level creation/sharing.”

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

“No, as this game includes all the main functionality we want to include, we feel that it wouldn't be right to charge more unless we make a significant update!”

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

“We'll take feedback any way we can get it! We love reviews and comments so please leave them on the Steam Store. We'll also be scouring social media for clips, reviews, and comments. Any feedback, especially on our mechanics and difficulty settings, is deeply appreciated and will help us make Synth Riders the ultimate synthwave cyberpunk experience!”

There are four levels of difficulty: easy, medium, hard and expert.
