C-Wars is a mix of fast paced action, roguelike and block based strategy game featured in an unique Sci-fi world with retro graphics.

Start your story with different heroes from different factions. Unveil dark stories behind the infectious outbreak that turns people into mutated monsters.

Each playthrough has a main storyline and randomly generated missions. You'll need to fight off enemies, loot gears, supplies and manage soldiers to get a better chance of survival.

Combat will be tough and unforgiving. But you'll have many chances to better yourself. Getting beaten in battle won't instantly kill you. Instead, it increases the crisis value. The more time you spend on failure and wander around the closer you are to face the end.

Why Early Access?
“C-Wars has reached the final phase of development. Our next goal is to allow the steam community early access to our latest demo so that we can collect feedback from all the players.

We highly encourage players to submit their thoughts to us in order to help us create the best possible game for all of you.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?
“We plan on having early access available up until the full release of the game. We hope to have the game released by end of 2015 depending on the feedback we receive.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
“Key gameplay aspects of the game will be available in the early access period. C-Wars will keep evolving and improving the early access build overtime based on community feedback.

The final version of the game will contain many features not available on the early access build such as the full narrative story mode and additional heroes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?
“The early access version of C-Wars will have 3 heroes and a few missions for each. It will contain large portion of the games features so that players can dive right in and play.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
“Yes. Currently we are pricing the early access version of C-Wars at a minimum price, which reflects the unfinished, work in progress status. Other than that, we plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?
“We'll use Steam’s forums to collect your feedback. We'll be actively fixing bugs and fine tuning the game during the early access period. Please keep in mind, we are a small development team so we will try our best to record all your feedback and implement what we can.”


Been a long, strange, winding road for this project en route to this waypoint---here's hoping it all comes together sensibly from here in fine fashion.   :)
