Join the developer early in development and help shape the direction of the game as they are planning to refine this game continuously with player feedback, and dev-tier supporters get access to source code.
After Alpha 4: Economy Release will be Alpha 5: Ecosystem Release, followed by Beta, then Steam Early Access. Throughout, Strange Loop intends to build Eco into an entirely different kind of video game, focused on a dynamic social and simulated world that lives or dies based on the actions of the group, where scientific inquiry, politics, and a robust economy determine the success of the world.
