What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Rectifying Zion has been in development since 2011. It is worked on, on a part-time basis. Now we are pushing it to completion and our goal is to make this our first priority. While we have a strong vision for this project, we want to get the community directly involved with the development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our development plan indicates 6 months with all team roles filled. At the current pace, however, it will be around 2 years.”

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

“As development progresses, all updates will be made available in Early Access.

  • Full day and night cycle with weather effects
  • Customizable player character, clothing and inventory
  • Customizable player character traits with dialogue abilities

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