Dev Blog [4/1/16] / Beta 0.0.3 Update
Early Access

Klepto is scheduled to release as Early Access on 5/17 for $12.99 ($9.49 during the launch sale)!

Because our initial Early Access release now has a smaller scope than we originally planned to launch with, we decided to significantly reduce the price from the originally planned launch price of $19.99. We expect to have one price increase during Early Access in addition to the final price increase when we exit Early Access. However, scheduling for any price changes will be announced at least a month in advance.

We still have a solid year of development ahead of us. Fortunately, Klepto's core framework is in place and ready to start growing with all the exciting things we have planned for this game. I've always been a big fan of open development and it's a model we intend on using during this long journey we have ahead of us. To help get us started, I've setup a public Trello board for our Early Access Roadmap. Over the upcoming weeks I'll be populating those cards with additional details. We encourage you all to post comments and vote for features you're most excited to see implemented.

"Beta" Update

A few weeks ago we announced our upcoming "beta" for Klepto and the amount of signups we received greatly surpassed our expectations. During that time we've release two builds to a small group of testers and crowdfunding backers. Today we put the final touches on the 0.0.3 release and we're preparing to send out the first batch of invites. The first batch consists of the first 50 individuals who registered for the "beta". As a special thanks for their eagerness to help us test, those 50 beta keys will also unlock the retail version on 5/17.

Don't worry, we still have a lot more keys to give out! The remaining invites won't contain a retail key but instead we will be sending retail keys out separately to lots of individuals based on their engagement with us on the support board and via their gameplay stats from the Steam Leaderboards.

The beta invites will be on-going until our Early Access launch on 5/17.

Description
Release date: 2016


Klepto is a VR supported sandbox burglary simulation game featuring a criminal career progression from an amateur thief to high-tech professional. Players will leverage a variety of tools, disguises and hacking techniques to “strategically acquire” assets throughout sandbox neighborhood environments.



 Sandbox neighborhoods
 Multiplayer (1-4: Co-Op / Competitive)
 Full VR Support (Oculus and SteamVR)
 Character Progression
 Hacking and Network Simulation
 Powered by Unreal Engine



The single-player campaign features a story driven element that continues to unfold as the player progresses through the three skill tiers:

 Amateur
 Expert
 Professional

Progression through each tier unlocks all new features and gameplay mechanics. Click the images below for more details. (Professional article is coming soon)

Amateur: An opportunist with a limited tactical skillset who relies on brute force and quick grabs.

[www.meerkatgaming.com]
Expert: A veteran of the craft who utilizes disguises, tools and other techniques to skillfully gain entry into target homes.


Professional: A master in the art of unlawfully acquiring profitable goods. Skilled players of this tier will utilize high tech tools and real-world hacking techniques to use home security, surveillance and automation systems to their own advantage.

@Tai Lopez,

That's certainly one of the key factors that separate the successful Early Access games from the unsuccessful. The first thing our team discussed when making the Early Access decision was a roadmap that includes major content updates on a monthly basis with bug fix updates being at a more frequent pace (when they are needed of course).

We want to get the community involved in helping us prioritize content on the release roadmap. We plan on setting up a Trello board for the community to vote on specific content their most eager to receive.
@Meerkat, Early access isnt a bad thing if you keep updating your game with new features, Some games are early access for years without a single update. Its not the early access that gives them a bad rep, it's that they rarely update their game

@Pvt_Booger - I'll see if I can track down a copy of Der Clou so I can check it out.

One of the key features of Klepto are the open-world neighborhoods.Players will be free to lurk around the entire neighborhood and break into any home. You can travel between unlocked neighborhoods using the region map.

Initially, I was opposed to the idea of Early Access due to a negative reputation I've seen caused by some games in a permanent state of Early Access. However, taking this route will allow us to get it into the hands of players much earlier while working even closer with the community to help us greatly improve on the game. Additionally, it also allows us to raise additional funds to invest directly back into the game during development where it can make the most impact.
