What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want Crypto Crisis to be a challenging but rewarding game to play, striking this balance will only be possible with the help of the community. We welcome and encourage all feedback and suggestions.

https://discord.gg/A8Yqk7E - Join our Discord channel!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to have released the full version by Q1 2019. As we are dedicated to crafting a great gaming experience this date may shift slightly.”

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

“The focus of the early access version is to improve game mechanics, iron out bugs and improve game balance. It will go through several changes as features and mechanics are added, tweaked or removed.

The full version will have no major core game play changes, much better game balance and fully complete visuals (3D models and textures).

Please see the "About This" section for a list of planned content and features.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Please see the "About This" section for a list of released content and features.”

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

“At this point in time we do not intend to alter the price after early access.”

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

“Please join our Discord channel, come say "hi" and give us any feedback you have about the game, good or bad. Please tell us how you find the game balance, if you have any feature/mechanic suggestions or if you have found any bugs, small or game breaking.

We will take all your feedback and use it to help guide us in improving the game.”

Upgrade all feature is here!

Probably one of the most requested features and for good reason!

The upgrade all feature allows you to buy/upgrade all workers of a certain type within a chassis simultaneously.



Any slots which are already occupied by a worker are taken into account when determining the final cost and how the action will affect the stats of the chassis (as shown by the change in chassis stats window).



We hope this helps to make endgame a little less tedious!
