What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“During Early Access we will be focusing on three main goals:

  • Create a positive space where we can listen to player feedback to keep refining the game throughout Early Access
  • Host regular developer live stream events to showcase new and upcoming features
  • Fan events, art and seasonal content

  • Regular updates to the procedurally generated Holochamber game mode
  • Introduce the Campaign mode planets and missions as they are completed
  • Update playable character skills, weapons, new enemies and more!

  • Refine the gameplay experience through Quality of Life Updates
  • Find and smash bugs with the help of the player community
  • Phase in final art, sound and other game effects

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Solar Purge will be in Early Access until 2024, allowing us to finish the rest of the game’s planned content in conjunction with feedback from the community.

See the Roadmap down below!

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

“The full version of the game will feature the complete campaign including 7 unique locations to explore, the procedurally generated Holochamber mode and its variants, 4 playable character classes each with 9 upgradeable skills, over 15 distinct weapon types, tons of weapon perks, character save profiles and more!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • Core gameplay and loot generation systems are currently up and running
  • Dive into the endless Holochamber Arcade mode featuring 4 unique locations
  • Quick save your Holochamber Arcade progress
  • Play as all 4 character classes, complete with over half of the planned character skills
  • Play through 11 of the Campaign levels
  • Save your Campaign progress between levels

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

“Our ethos at Hitscan Games is to remain entirely self-funded. During Early Access we want to reward players for their support as we realize our passion project.

After entering full release there will be a price increase commensurate with the amount of content made available throughout Early Access. We do not currently have an exact price for the full version of the game, but we will provide more information on that in the future!”

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

“At Hitscan Games we believe in open communication with our fans. We want to build a community that can help us respond swiftly to feedback and enjoy connecting with us during live streams as we continue to refine the gameplay experience throughout Early Access.”
