Why Early Access?

BlueSuburbia will be in development for a long time, with stable updates being released regularly to build on the world and stories. The intention of sharing the production as Early Access is to let people enjoy what is done, while letting players be part of the process. BlueSuburbia will remain free for the extend that it is in Early Access. When finished, BlueSuburbia will be payment only.

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

The estimated release date is roughly late October 2025. This may change. This is a large project and it is hard to say for certain. The hope is to have the major portion of the first iteration done by the end of next year. I am the only person working on it.

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

The Early Access version of BlueSuburbia will give players access to the open worlds and poetry. You can already explore the beginning of the journey. There are a number of open worlds coming, with interesting stories and horror elements that will elaborate on the narrative context of the world. The ending story arch will be saved for the finished version.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

The Early Access version features an open world to explore, and early portions of the story. Please see the "About This" section for more information about what to expect. Any Early Access version will be stable and as polished as possible to give players the best possible experience. A minor amount of bugs are expected, but there is no intention of releasing anything that is too raw or unstable. Quality will be like a public demo that is incrementally built on.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

BlueSuburbia will remain free during the extent of Early Access. This is to keep it fair for both players that want to experience it, and myself because I want to share it with people without anyone feeling like I took advantage of them or promised something unfairly. It's free. Players don't lose anything. Once the finished paid version is out, players can make an informed decision if they want to buy it or not based on their experience with the Early Access version.
