We respect Early Access too and take it very, very seriously!
Everything we have listed on the Features list is in the game and will be available at Early Access, but of course we intend to do a lot of polish and iteration through Early Access in addition to continually expanding the Feature set as well.
But yeah, beyond simply hitting the feature bullet points, it's our priority that the game you play on Day 1 Early Access is a damn fun, polished, solid-as-heck experience that is only going to get ever greater. How do we make it happen? work work work work work work work
We're also going to have a Trello roadmap available to the public by the time we launch Early Access!
We know that the track record on Early Access games in general and Early Access Dinosaur games in particular isn't good. Actually we have a little something in the works to make the wound of the Stomping Land a little easier for players who were let down by it, but more details on that a little later...
We are set on being one of those Early Access exceptions, one of the teams that does it right. The developers behind ARK actually have quite a bit of veteran experience creating various well-known titles, so we're 100% aware of what we're getting into and fanatically committed to taking this all the way to the promised land... that would be, the land before time
