Post news Report RSS Estranged: Act II on Steam Early Access

Estranged: Act II will be released onto Steam Early access in the coming weeks.

Posted by on

We are excited to announce that Estranged: Act II will be on Steam! We will be releasing Estranged: Act II into Early Access - for free!

Estranged: Act I was released in incremental “alphas” while it was being developed. This allowed us to regularly provide players with new content, and for players to continuously give feedback on the development process.

Early Access vastly simplifies the incremental update process, as it is a lot easier for us to release often. We no longer need to prepare and advertise large releases ahead of time, the process of pushing a new build to Steam takes a matter of minutes.

Once Early Access has finished, we plan to charge a nominal amount for the game – but this will be when we are satisfied it is complete. Estranged is (and has always been) a spare time project for everyone involved, alongside full-time work and education. We would love to get paid for what we do, but only if we make a fun game.

Anyone that downloads the game during the free Early Access period will keep the game in their library when it releases fully, paid-for or otherwise. If you are a part of the development process, you deserve to keep the game forever.

We will be using the Act II Steam forums as our primary means of communication, with transparent release notes and a public bug tracker to streamline the development process.

We will be putting the Early Access build live over the next few weeks. Thank you for being part of the Estranged project, we hope you’ll continue this journey with us!

- The Estranged Team

Would you consider the starting EA build closer to an Alpha or Beta state?

I'm not a fan of early access in general, but I'm still glad to hear it will be available soon. Keep up the great work.

I dl'd this game to my Steam game list this morn, looks very nice BUT you haven't added any mouse movement to it!! My hands don't work well and I have to use the mouse to move! I have my keyboard mapped for other things. So my question is are you going to add mouse control??
