Description

Take the role of a plane crash survivor stranded somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. Come face to face with some of the most life threatening scenarios that will result in a different experience each time you play. Scavenge. Discover. Survive. Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access? “We don't want to work on Stranded Deep forever. If all goes well, we're hoping to have it completed by the end of 2015.” How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version? “We're using Early Access to add more content and balance game mechanics through community input. We would like to think of the full release as the conclusion to this process.” What is the current state of the Early Access version? “This is Early Access and this is an early build. All core mechanics for crafting, building and interacting are in place and functional. Players will be able to manage their character's vital system and accumulate resources. Every current object and item in the game has a purpose and functionality that we will no doubt have to balance as development continues. The world is infinitely procedurally-generated and full of different biomes. Areas will not be incomplete or locked off; Instead, the biomes and world generation will evolve as development progresses. There is no "end-game" yet, so players will not be able to "beat" the game or be rescued. Optimization is an ongoing process. We've made many optimizations along the way and have incorporated comprehensive graphics options, but there's always more to do. We are confident in a stable performant build but this is never a guarantee. We are very passionate developers and have put our heart and soul into Stranded Deep. We prefer not to give estimates of percentages or timelines for our development but we can be confident in saying that we're not releasing bug-ridden shovel-ware.” Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access? “The price will remain the same during Early Access. After Early Access has finished, the final price will reflect the additional content added during development - but it won't be a big change.” How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process? “We will be releasing a public board that lists our progress, concepts and issues so players can see what's being addressed at the time and also that their feedback is being received and used positively. We always read our feedback and take everyone's opinion seriously. Receiving player feedback is important so we can use it to improve and evolve. We will see it.”
