From the developers:

This Steam Early Access game is currently not a finished game and may or may not change significantly over the course of development. To learn more about Steam Early Access, please visit http://store.steampowered.com/earlyaccessfaq/


Why Early Access?

“SOL is being developed by a small team and is currently in early beta, it is very stable and playable. We need the help of the cycling community so we don't go too crazy with the gameplay and forget those key elements that make it a useful cycling/workout tool:D Please join us in it's creation! Thank you:)”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to be developing early access for about 1 year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have more Mars terrains, routes, gameplay and models. We will also build an online scoreboard. From release, we plan to continue to improve the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“- One large MMO Massive Multiplayer Online real Mars map, rendered in beautiful 4k.
- 2 integrated mini games, alien shooter and Mars Helicopter with individual scoreboards
- Capture the flag mode
- Banter attacks
- Trainer connectivity via ANT+ and Bluetooth FTMS (Tacx Neo and Wahoo also supported to limited degrees)
- Mars weather effects, dust storm, twisters, rockslides and meteors
- Spacex modelled shuttle, launchpad and habitat.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, during beta it will be a small once off purchase (as it is now). Post beta we plan to increase the price slightly to reflect the new features.”

How are we planning on involving the Community in our development process?

“We are sharing all our development on Trello and you can provide feedback directly in game."
