What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have strong passion to create an old survival horror video game with beautiful graphic and immersive story. Retro style horror game that people used to love when they were kids but nowadays is hard to find since game companies don’t focus on this idea anymore.

I think that the community is part of the team already. We are opened to great and interesting ideas, regarding gameplay or story passages or what works and what not. Therefore we are planning to involve the community a great deal for our project while in this stage of development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Right now we are planning to divide the game in 3 full episodes. Since we have many assets, and code finished, it will take us around 6 to 9 more months to finish the first episode. In this time we will deliver updates frequently.”

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

“The full version will be a more polished version with extra content like new weapons, new extra outfits, new monsters, professional voice acting. It will be also localized to as many languages as we can support. We want also adding an alternate story where you play as a different character.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have a fully playable game that takes part somewhere later in chapter 4 of the first episode, where player is already trained to use a weapon and is equipped with one. We have a smooth gameplay mechanic including mixed camera modes, full inventory system done with use, combine and examine as well as drop items. Various enemies, including infected, mini bosses and others. Fully gore system implemented where you can dismember the infected limbs. Different puzzle solving. Now we are working on chapter 1 new levels and enemies as well as other gameplay mechanics such as stealth. Recently we just implemented a quick weapon switch within the inventory where we let you choose the key assignment for it. The team also created many levels and assets that will be included in the next updates.

Latest Update: https://steamcommunity.com/games/915600/announcements/detail/2693605177438008523

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

“The early access game will be cheaper enough to fund the team to keep pushing faster. The full version of the game will be more pricier. We also want as many people as possible to be able to play, contribute and test the game.”

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

“For us the player's opinion is very important because they are the final users and it's their experience that matters most. We can test the game in this matter and we can fix the issues and bugs that they encounter in the early access version, also we can modify certain passages or develop them with their help. This way we can achieve a polished and immersive result.”
