Spiderling Studios medieval-themed siege simulator, Besiege, is now on Steam Early Access. The developers are using this feature to gain valuable player feedback as well as fund their game. But they have confirmed that full release will take some time to complete, roughly 1.5-2 years.
“Early Access essentially puts us in dialogue with the community and the players. We want Besiege to be easy to access, and we would like to involve and address player feedback as the game progresses. Also, we really love to see how far everyone can push the building mechanics, and we want to be able to respond to the crazy methods people are discovering that we weren't even aware of!”
Besiege is a pretty neat game that allows plays to create siege units to destroy fortresses, castles, armies, or basically anything that gets in their way. These weapons are not limited to ground based creations and include anything from catapults, trebuchets, battering rams, and even a helicopter device with flamethrowers. The game does use a physics-based engine though, so there is some mechanics behind this. But other than that, players can attach any weapon to their units like cannons or fire turrets.
The goal is pretty simple, players will have to use their weapons of destruction to conquer every single kingdom, though how they do this is entirely up to them. With the freedom to create any kind of weapon and open-ended gameplay, we can expect some pretty creative units and methods from the playerbase.
The Early Access version of the game will contain 15 levels, included a sand-box level that will let players test out their creations. Players will also have the ability to disable all limitations, allowing them to experiment. The game also features a time-dilation dial which players can use to view the game in slowmotion.
