What the developers have to say:
Why Early Access?“We've been working on Run Of Mydan for the last few months and we feel it's coming out very well, but lots of features are still missing and we'd like to build on what we have with some help from the Community. The current release is already at a good stage of development and we've decided to release the game to give you a taste of what we are working on. An early access release will allow us to build the more advanced features of the game together with the community and deliver frequent updates based on community feedback and our internal roadmap as well.”
Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?
“We plan to keep the game in EA as long as new interesting features can be added, but let's say 6-8 months at least (which is the amount of time we think is necessary to add new content, features and do some heavy polishing).”
How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?“EA version contains a small part of the planned Story Mode in order to showcase the initial themes and environments that will be part of the full story. We'd like to expand on that a lot in the final release of course, we already have concepts and initial assets for three new environments at least. Same goes for additional Multiplayer modes, gameplay mechanics, more weapons and so on.
As the technology becomes mainstream, virtual reality will make more worlds open up to customers. Think of resorts sharing virtual experiences to lure adventurers to book a desired holiday, or social channels such as YouTube housing content that are simply plug-and-play—the possibilities are endless.
Some of the things we planned to add:
- Full Steamworks integration
- Dedicated servers
- Additional maps and environments
- New gamemodes
- Unlockables and perks
- Character customization
- Non-VR Client for certain multiplayer gamemodes
What is the current state of the Early Access version?
“The game in its current version is perfectly playable with most of the graphic and sound assets in place. There's much room for improvement of course, and we plan to release regular updates both regarding game design and audiovisual department.”
Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
“We plan to slightly raise the price as we ship new content and features for the game.”
