The idea to launch as early acces is to get player feedback to decide the direction of future improvements, as well as to keep implementing improvements and updates.
The idea is to offer improvements and new content gradually, such as: more modern graphics, soundtrack, special levels, etc.

Translation subject to future corrections.
It is the game´s more lethal version. The tragical events happen at a faster pace.
Other adjustments also raise the difficulty
The idea is that this version will be a DLC, to be launched soon!
Game design, art & programming:
The version for the Atari is still available, however being much more limited (due to the system) and not any longer the focus of the development.
Inspite the game being distributed online, perhaps a box will be created for some promotional context.
The game will receive many improvements and increments!
