- Will the Alpha be available in 2019?
At this stage we are aiming to have “something” playable by the end of 2019. However in saying that we are not going to rush anything. It’s more important that we do things right than rush into something that doesn’t work the way we anticipate. We will NEVER say a date unless we are 100% positive on that date.
- Will the game be on Steam or Epic Games?
Right now our plan is to use Steam. However, in the current climate our release strategy might change in the future. We can only wait until closer to our release.
- Do you purchase assets from Unreal Marketplace to build this game?
Yes of course we do. In fact we don’t know to many indie developers that don’t. With the size of this game it is important that we get as much done as we can with the limited people involved. IF that means purchasing certain things from professional artists then we have absolutely no problem doing that. For those that consider that an asset flip, please research its meaning. This is NOT an asset flip. The entire reason Unreal has a marketplace is for indie game developers to help speed things along. I should also say that we also use marketplace coding that then gets re-coded to our liking by our programmers. Eventually when we are in a better financial position after sales starts rolling in we will be able to hire many more developers to build ONLY our own assets for the game. At this stage it’s about 50/50 in assets bought vs made. We pride ourselves on getting this game made.
