What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I plan to use Early Access to get the feedback needed to improve the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will remain in early access until the full version of the game has been completed.
My aim is to release the full game by late August 2019.”

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

“Plan for the full version:

-5 different zones each with their own music, enemies, mini games and bosses to fight

-The zones will vary in difficulty, but you will be able to play them in any order you want. Except for the final zone to access that you will have to beat the bosses of the other zones.

-Levels where the player is transformed into something else and gains abilities unique to that form.

-Levels that can be unlocked by finding secret exits or by unlocking gates on the map screen.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently has 6 levels from zone 1, 4 levels from zone 2 and 2 levels from zone 3, including a boss fight.
There is also an Item shop, inventory system and a mini game where the player can earn extra lives.”

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

“The price will likely change as more content is added”

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

“I will take feedback from players and use it to improve the game and make it a more fun experience.
Feedback can be left on the Steam Discussion board.”
