What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Hello! I'm the sole designer/coder/artist on Grim Earth and, now that it's finally ready to play, it'd be great to get some feedback and bounce some ideas around : )

This will be the first time I've released a game that's still in development (been a full-time indie for 14 years), so I'm really looking forward to hearing what you think!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I'm aiming for 2-3 months from now (Jan 2020). The game engine is complete, so I'll be focusing purely on the game creation side of things from now on : ) Grim Earth is my sole project and I'm working on it full time.”

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

“As well as the tweaks/fixes implemented during Early Access, there'll be around five times as much content. You'll also be able to customise your spacesuit and find/share codes for cheats & hidden features.

During development Early Access levels may be modified, however the game uses chapter points to keep any progress lost to a minimum.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game engine is feature complete, so please see the 'About This Game' section for what to expect. However, spacesuit customisation and cheat codes will not be present in the Early Access build.

This Early Access build is also content limited as just the first 20% of the game (around an hour of gameplay) will be ready to show. I will update this text with a closer estimate before the Early Access release.”

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

“I expect the release price to be around 2-3 times higher, although this may change based on the community's feedback. The Early Access price reflects the fact that there's less content at this stage.”

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

“I'll be using Steam's community features to talk about the game and its development. There will be a website focusing on Grim Earth but his will be for casual players, so Steam will be the place to go for development news/feedback : )”

About This Game

OMG, look at the Earth ... it's Grim!

5000 years from now, a series of apocalyptic events have shaped our once beautiful home into an entirely different world.

It's not all bad news though. Countless alien invasions mean it's a vibrant place to live and biodiversity is at an all time high, although most of it is not too friendly and should be avoided. Humans 2.0 are very friendly however, existing in peaceful harmony with all, thanks partly to the kind programming their AI fathers have bestowed upon them.

Grim Earth is a 2D platform game inspired by SNES/Amiga era gameplay, featuring a blend of action, exploration and some puzzle solving. The game tells an on-going story as you meet new characters, battle alien hostiles and jump, climb, swim, slide and float (zero-g) your way through a variety of locations.

The game is designed to be nice and light, featuring a hand drawn graphical style, a dry sense of humour, frequent save points and it's free of bloody gore ... although there are plenty of explosions, alien splats and flying robot parts!

So grab your spacesuit, customise it, and go on a retro-platform-game adventure.

Coming soon to Steam Early Access ... hope you'll look out for it! : )
