What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Starblazer team wants to deliver the best possible competitive platform for VR. However, it is currently only being developed by a single coder and developer. That said, it needs the help of the community to help guide and refine the product, making the best use of development time and focusing on what players want to see the most. We will use the Early Access time to polish up gameplay and build a stable platform.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We would like to see Starblazer be a fully functioning and feature rich game by the end of 2019. The core mechanics are built in, so we are confident that this timeframe will is suitable finalizing and creating a suitable multiple universe.”

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

“It is our desire that the final product would be fully ready for competitive online multiplayer. This includes rich user profiles - with rankings, statistics, more customization.

As for the single player, we already offer multiple levels of AI bots, and soon the first 25 episodes of the Campaign. In the future, we would want to build out the story with continued episodes of the campaign.

There are many ideas that the Starblazer team has discussed before, that we would want to bounce off of the community for input on, including co-op challenges, varying multiplayer modes, and other customization opportunities. Tell us what you want, and we will look to see what we can make happen!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All of the core mechanics and several key maps have been developed for competitive gameplay. We implemented Multiplayer, but still have more we’d like to do around customization, leaderboards, and rankings.”

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

“Largely, we would like to maintain the same pricing structure during early development, as a new and very small independent game studio (yes, just one coder!). We do believe though that there is opportunity to offer the game at a much-reduced price or even a free-to-play structure if the development team was given the financial freedom to make that decision. For now though, now that payment of the target price is much appreciated in early stages of supporting this adventure!”

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

“We will be monitoring the Steam Community discussions, but we strongly encourage that people join the discussion on our Discord:
https://discord.gg/jDKWnmX

Getting a fully functioning strategy game, much less one that is competitive multiplayer, leans heavily on it being properly balanced. The community is vital in helping us maintain that balance. Feedback on the proper ship types, abilities, and strengths are crucial in building a fun multiplayer game. We will take the input from the community and tweak continually to offer an experience that offers fun, epic space battles.”
