What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Open Sewer is an open world role-playing game project, which would be almost ideal for adding new features and content, and reflecting that with the community, to determine the direction for this project to take.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate that Open Sewer will spend one year in Early Access, with the possibility of taking more time depending on the received feedback.”

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

“Naturally the "full" version will be more refined, run smoother with less issues and have far more content than is currently featured.

For the full version we are planning on adding more playable locations with their own themes and purposes. To make Open Sewer a deeper and more living environment, we're planning on implementing different joinable factions with their own dynamics, and the ability to commit crime against said factions with the risk of punishement (and potential reward from their opponents).

As managing and renting out your tenement is a major aspect of the game, we plan to add a lot more depth into that. More freedom and upgrading options will be implemented. We're also thinking about the possibility of players setting up their own businesses.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently we have implemented:
  • Main playable area exists in Open Sewer.
  • Basic storyline installed with a few related tasks for player to complete.
  • Some interesting and crazy characters, with their own unique dialogue.
  • Item system with trading, consuming and manufacturing, including 100+ different items.
  • A functioning system for player character's needs and addictions.
  • Player character creation.
  • Basics for the player owned tenement, with renting and upgrading.
  • Day and week cycle.

Not yet implemented:
  • Improve NPC behavior
  • Performance improvements in some areas.
  • Bug fixes.

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

“Price will be adjusted accordingly based on the amount of content and overall quality of the game during development. Therefore the price will go up a bit, as our plans get materialized into the game.”

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

“The direction of the game's development will be influenced by the community. We will be actively listening to your suggestions and feedback on a Steam discussion board, not to mention the inevitable bug reports and issues... after all, it is early access ;)”

About This Game

Open Sewer is a "Concretepunk" roleplaying game set in Stalburg's rundown residential district of 'Obenseuer', nicknamed 'Open Sewer' by its unfortunate residents, some of whom have been permanently deposited there against their will, as the city want's to sweep its precious posh center of all the rabble.

Thanks to them, you'll need to survive in that notorious cesspit of mayhem that is 'Open Sewer' and try to make ends meet while struggling with your needs, addictions and depression.
