What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to give artists the opportunity to get their hands on ColorTool as soon as possible so we can adjust the development of the tool in accordance to the users needs.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“At least a year.”

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

“There are three goals for the final release:

- Expand ColorTool so it can be used within a wider range of creative workflows
- Improve the existing workflows, namely using ColorTool for Pixel Art and Illustrations
- Make ColorTool as stable and reliable as possible”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version is already completly functional and contains all the features as described in the "About This Software" section.”

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The final product will be sold for the same or slightly higher price.”

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

“ColorTool will use the steam discussion forums in order to gather feedback and bug reports. We will actively seek out feedback in order to prioritise features for future releases.”
