    Why Early Access?
    “Its because we need your help to make the best 2.5D engine possible.

    The Unfolding Engine is going to take a while to realise the vision of what it can be. As well as this we are wanting to build a community of people while the software is being developed to help it become as accessible to many people as possible. We want you to help us talk about what you would like from the program, what you don't like about it, what you want us to do more of, and what way would you like the community to be set up.

    Many programs release their programs too late without getting feedback from gamers, and as a result things that could of been corrected in a beta form could of been addressed before it was too late. That is why we are using a early access model. While glitches may be frustrating designing an engine around community feedback creates a program in the end that is far more to what people want then what we could make.”
