Hello guys :D
How’s your day?

First of all we want to say thank so much to all of you guys who have been waiting for our game, Aquaculture Land. Just like the title said, we finally released Aquaculture Land on Steam Early Access. Thank you for your patience and support so far.

Aquaculture Land came when we were finding a dead end while making Aquaponics Life. One of the reasons we were making Aquaponics Life was because Aquaponics farming concept was booming at that time and we haven't seen games that use the concept. Because we focus on management games, so we decided to make a management game with the concept of "Aquaponics". But in the midst of making Aquaponics Life, we found a dead end. We find it difficult to show the core of the aquaponics concept from the game Aquaponics Life. We had several times changed the view and art style of the game but still found a dead end. We feel the concept of "Aquaponics" is still too big. So, why we not going for smaller one?

That's where we decided to breakdown the concept to be smaller and sparked the idea to use the concept of "Aquaculture" as the core game. Because we will create a management game simulation, we need to collect valid data about how to do aquafarming and how the business is. We also learned from aquaculture experts and finally decided to hold Aquaponics Life development and start making Aquaculture Land.

Aquaculture Land is a freshwater aquafarming management game with sandbox style mechanic and 2D pixel art visual design. Player will act as a businessman that runs a freshwater fish farm. They will manage all things related to fisheries, produce some high-quality products, fulfill the needs of customers to get benefits, and develop the business.

Learning from our previous games, we began to realize that the role of the community or player in making a game was so important. The game that we felt had fulfilled the player's expectations turned out to be still lacking. After going through various considerations, we decided to bring Aquaculture Land to Steam Early Access. We feel Steam Early Access is the right place to get suggestions and feedbacks from the community so that our game can continue to grow and meet player expectations later on.

This is the first time we released a game in early access state. At first, we were hesitant to do it. But because we saw enthusiasm from the community and support from all of you, we decided to try Steam Early Access.

In this early access state, there is only a "Free mode" mode where you can make your own farm and manage your business without any quests or anything. You can already play Core Loops gameplay such as building ponds, nurturing fish, harvesting fish, and selling fish. And as usual if you have suggestions or feedback, feel free to let us know. You can tell us on the discussion thread.

This is just the beginning for Aquaculture Land. In this Steam Early Access want to grow together with the community. We want to make this game become a game that not only meet our player expectations, but also something that we build together with the community.
