EARLY ACCESS

What is Early Access?
Early Access is a period in which players can purchase Industries of Titan early if they would like to support development, play the game early and help shape its future. During this time we’ll continue to add features, balance the game based on player feedback and further polish the game.

Why Early Access?
Early Access allows us to get your feedback as early as possible so we can make Industries of Titan the best game it can be. We’re bursting with ideas and want you to help us shape the future of the game.

How long will the game be in Early Access?
We are currently planning on having Early Access last for one year. However, this could change if we feel like the game is not ready for a full 1.0 launch after a year.

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
Combat Simulation is a huge aspect of the final version that we are still working on behind the scenes and won’t yet be enabled when Early Access launches. There are other features and simulations missing from the Early Access version, but we are planning to add many other features such as simulations for Transportation, Population, Weather, Factories, Tech Trees, and more. Please see our roadmap for further details.

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?
Your feedback will shape the future of Titan! We’d love to hear your feedback and there are a few places you can reach us to do that. You can find us on Discord, head over to our Forums or find us on Twitter. Alternatively you can also contact support@braceyourselfgames.com

Will my progress be saved throughout Early Access?
Frequent updates will mean that older saves will likely not work with newer versions. We understand that this may be frustrating, but the nature of Early Access and adding features means that this is regrettably unavoidable.

When can I get the game on Steam?
Industries of Titan will be available on Steam in 2021 after a one year Early Access period.

ABOUT UPCOMING FEATURES:

Where is the Combat we saw in the Trailers and PAX?
We have the Combat systems built and playable internally, as can be seen from our PAX previews from last year, but there is still work to be done to expand Combat and to add more depth and polish. We’ve disabled combat for now, but it will be one of the first big updates in Early Access.

Where is Transportation?
The transportation gameplay system is currently in production and will be one of the first content updates during Early Access. It will feature roads for your city, trucks for resource delivery, and a new Transportation focused building. This gameplay system will also then be expanded upon in later updates during Early Access.

What other updates can we expect in Early Access?
Right now, Citizen simulation is not as complex as we want it to be. In a near-future update, Citizens will choose when to work, sleep, and how to use their spare time. Some will even volunteer themselves for conversion into Employees, rather than conversion being solely the result of a player action. Once Citizens gain more agency, the City Building aspect of the game will require you to keep your Citizens happy, or else your income and workforce will suffer.

Another aspect we seek to address is the use of Credits. Credits are currently used for City Management, such as repairs, upkeep and maintenance. In the future, you will also have to pay your Employees a “salary”, a restitution fee paid to their families. This means Employee management will have to factor into your economic strategy. Failure to do so will result in Citizen disobedience and Employees malfunctioning.

How often will you be updating Titan?
We will try to release smaller content updates every few weeks, with bigger gameplay features coming every couple months. Different features require different amounts of time. The bigger the feature, the more time we need to implement and test it before we can release it.
