Why Early Access?
We are launching The Endless Mission on Early Access because we want to be able to involve the community as soon as possible in the development of the game. The Endless Mission, at its core, is a creation sandbox game with a powerful toolset that will let those who accept the mission build some amazing creations. The Early Access community will be critical in helping inform what tools we should introduce and what genres we should explore next.
Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?
We anticipate The Endless Mission coming out of Early Access in 2020.
How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
The full version of The Endless mission will see additional genres being released, multiplayer content creation tools, additional tools that will allow for more creative exploration, and a continued expansion of the story and narrative.
What is the current state of the Early Access version?
The Early Access version of The Endless Mission will feature both an adventure and creative mode. The adventure mode begins to tell the narrative of The Endless Mission and will introduce players to characters that they'll interact with and the tools that they'll need to build and create. Speaking of which, the creative mode will give players the opportunity to dive instantly into tools and begin creating their own games using a powerful set of tools.
Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
The price of The Endless Mission is going to increase as key features are introduced into the game. However, if a player has already purchased the game then those new features will come at no extra cost. Once you buy it, it's yours.
How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?
The community is one of the primary reasons that we are choosing to launch The Endless Mission on Early Access. This is an ambitious game in terms of the range of genres that can be created, the scope of the story, and power of the creation tools - so having a dedicated community along with us on this journey is going to be amazing.
Currently, we’re planning on having weekly developer blog updates to share, hosting themed challenges that will highlight community-generated content, and listening to the community to help inform us on what features and game genres they want to see integrated into The Endless Mission over time.
