Techtonica is entering into Early Access on July 18th. ICYMI, here’s some info on that!
To give players a better sense of where Techtonica’s heading, the team created a roadmap that showcases what the next few updates will look like. Closer updates have more details, as we’ve fully scoped those out and planned them. Further updates have less details, as we aren’t 100% ready to commit to the designs we have planned.
This is important: this roadmap isn’t locked in place.
We plan to adjust this roadmap based on your feedback! If you haven’t already, join our Discord or stay tuned for our soon-to-be-launched feedback website. As we make adjustments, we’ll be sure to notify the community and keep y’all in the loop.
Without further delay, the roadmap:
Welcome to Calyx – v0.1
v0.1 is what will be available on July 18th. This has everything you should expect at launch, including the M.O.L.E., destructible terrain, 4-player online co-op, the monorail with the rideable zipline, and an open world with fully voiced characters.
You’ll also find that Techtonica has been localized (in-game text and subtitles) into 10 supported languages. We will be adding more languages as time goes on, but for now, we prioritized the languages that popped up highest in our wishlists.
QoL Update – v0.1.1
The Quality of Life update planned for bugfixes will happen soon after launch, and we will need your help for it! Any player feedback submitted on our soon-to-be-launched website or in the Discord will be taken into account. While there’s no way we’ll be able to get to everything, we’ll rely on the community to help us figure out the most critical matters.
New Foundations – v0.2
The New Foundations update is where things get really exciting. There will be new narrative and research pieces, and Base Building will receive a massive upgrade. As players who spend 99% of their time in other games simply building houses, we are pretty darn stoked about this. You can expect new floors, walls, lights, and decorations. The art team has a pretty big list.
We’re hoping this update will launch a few months after the QoL update, which will be our typical cadence for updates moving forward.
Take Flight – v0.3
The last update we can provide even a small amount of details on is Take Flight; we’re adding a new vehicle to the game. What kind of vehicle? We can’t reveal that yet, but once the team is ready to share we will give you what we can. We’re adding in some gameplay-enhancing build modes as well.
As far as Desert MIRAGE goes? We’ll leave that one up to your imagination.
This is our current roadmap! We will update this roadmap as we get closer to other updates, and we will let you know when it happens.
See you in the Discord!
