Development

Build&Battle is released as first access to gather feedback on or if to continue to project.

I developed the game completely by myself and don't have the funds to continue so i need feedback and support.I have big plans for the project, but developing it in my free time is just to time consuming and to inefficient.

The game is being developed with Gamer Maker Studio 1 and was originally released to Steam Greenlight and Indie Gogo Crowdfunding. It didn't get funded, but it got greenlight at some point.

I was reluctant to release it on Steam Early Acces by now, as expectations to polish are pretty high and it would probably get destroyed.
