In the past seven days the game has seen a daily increase of concurrent players, roughly 4400 at its peak on Thursday, which is surprising considering its poor reception during its Early Access development phase.

The game's development was funded with a Kickstarter campaign in 2016 where roughly 10,000 backers pledged £317,281. It was made available on Steam Early Access on February 1, 2018, and officially released on May 23, 2019.
