ADR1FT Vive Update

By Adam Orth

Hey everyone, quick update on ADR1FT Vive progress:

Initially, we thought we’d be able to have this out to you before the end of May and obviously, that hasn’t happened. We’ve got the game up and running on the Vive and it’s coming along very nicely, but it needs some additional time and love in order to hone in on the things that make the combination of the Vive and ADR1FT a special VR experience. We want to make sure that we support all of the ways the hardware allows our game to shine, so we’re going to keep working and make sure we deliver something exceptionally cool as soon as possible.

One thing we get asked frequently: “will ADR1FT support the Vive’s motion controllers?”. Yes, we will support them, but in a traditional game controller experience, rather than a full hands/arms motion control experience. We began development on ADR1FT long before we had VR devkits with motion control support and it’s just not possible to retrofit fully-functioning hands and arms into our game. We are working on some unique ways to incorporate motion controls into the ADR1FT Vive experience, though. We’ll keep you updated on those, as well as when we’ll be pushing ADR1FT out to Steam.

ADR1FT Vive:

- ADR1FT + EVA Free Seated VR experience
- Vive controller support
- Steam controller support
- Gamepad support

Thanks for your patience on this. We’re a tiny dev team working as hard as we can to make great VR experiences. It won’t be long and we think ADR1FT on the Vive will be well worth the wait.

About This Game

ADR1FT is an immersive First Person Experience (FPX) that tells the story of an astronaut in peril. Floating silently amongst the wreckage of a destroyed space station with no memory and a severely damaged EVA suit slowly leaking oxygen, the only survivor struggles to determine the cause of the catastrophic event that took the lives of everyone on board. The player fights to stay alive by exploring the wreckage for precious resources, and overcomes the challenges of an unforgiving environment to repair the damaged EEV and safely return home.

Floationg in space is neat, graphics are good

There's really no game here, it's mostly an on-rails floating simulator. You have to fix 4 computers to get the escape pod to work so you can go back to Earth. I'm still not even sure how the space station blew up, and at this point I don't really care.

If you have a VR headset it's probably worth $10, it's certainly not worth $20.

Overall, I have to say I am a bit dissapointed with the game. The graphics are absouley amazing. No one can deny that. But the gameplay was monotnous, needing to essentially do the same thing 4 times is a bit excessive. Also the story is a bit lacking and annoying because you need to physically piece together the story through audio boxes floating around randomly. So few points off there. The ending was also extremely annoying and confusing because (SPOLER ALERT: SPOLER ALERT:) you dont know how this was the commanders fault. I mean maybe if you found all the audio logs but i was busy trying NOT TO DIE. This game had so much potential and it makes me sad knowing that it didnt live up to its potential. Overall, its a fun and pseudo relaxing survival game to play if you have a few hours to burn. But as a flagship release with captive storyline? Definitely not.

I think this experience is pretty much defined by whether you play it in VR or not. In VR the sense of scale and space is phenomenal and the graphics easily amongst the most captivating I've seen.

The controls I found very well thought out allowing me to move/drift about with good accuracy between segments and avoid bumping into things inside segments most of the time.

In terms of gameplay actions there is little. The navigation compass is passable. If the arrows are big and off to the side wrong orientation, if it's small and in front you're facing the right way, enough that I knew where to go with some thought. The game is very much float over here, hit this switch/computer/button, grab this, take it over there plug it in and unlock something else to do.

There's enough detail present in the emails on PCs and voice recorders etc. to flesh out the world and the events well enough. Well I say that, but I've not finished it yet having played about 90 mins, but it's certainly looking OK so far.

So if you've not got VR you may want to pass on this unless the idea appeals and you're a fan of these kind of so called walking simulators. It's not up there with Gone Home but I've found myself preferring it to Everybody's Gone to the Rapture. If you've got VR go for it, pretty much unreservadly I feel.. the experience is worth it even if the gameplay isn't.

P.S. I've got the strangest sense that I'm still in some kind of space suit despite stopping playing some ten or so minutes ago. Persistence of altered reality. The game view is from inside the space suit so you're view is very effectively restricted; it's *really* well done.

Best Space Walking Simulator 10/10.

ADR1FT says it all you are adrift in space following space station collision. Lots of debris and oxygen bottles flying around.

Buyer beware this is not a space survival game. This is a VR show pice and a deeply frustrating one at that. Firstly the only survival element is that you need oxygen which you not only breathe but also expell for propulsion. To anyone with more than a D in middle school science this is absurd (a cupfull of O2 would last for hours maybee days, if used for propulsion it would be gone in seconds) but thats ok as a game mechanic it's reasonable. To replanish your O@ you need to catch oxygen bottles that are rendomly floting next to an open box that contained them. You never open the box or interact with it they are all split open every one on the whole station. Once you figure this out you make your way to the central hub. Once there you start working towards launching an escape pod. Seems simple enough but no this pese of emergency equipment requires all parts of the station to be functional. Yes thats right you cant use the lifeboat unless the station is tip top and you dont need to. After cringe and make it past the absurdity you get sent to repair the computer, which is in the center hub wich isnt damaged. No no dont try to think just go with it float (painfully slowly to increase game time) acros the wrecked station segments they are severed but magic holds them in place to the outermost node and fabricate a replacement part (by getting to a computer and clicking enter antil it gives you a token). Aaaand then?? you got it back to the hub (why is there no backup? why is the token dispenser hell knows where instead of where the tokens are used never mind dont ask these questions). Once back glory haleluja the dor to the core opens and you float (at a a snails pace) to the computer core thrugh a vast cathedral like space that has grape leaves in it and servs no purpes whatever. In the computer core another surprise of the third kind you need 3 more tokens from the other extremes of the station. Argh I dont know what game the reviewers played, how anyone could expereance anything other then frustration playing this. It was such a cool premmise survival on a wrecked station. Looks spectacular it realy does (never mind water bubbles floting in space exposed to hard vacume) I hoped to salvege parts repurose them build and expand a safe area craft gear to venture further in to the wreck. No nothing a few e-mails and audio clips tha tell you about your dead crew erelevant to task at hand anyway. save your money wait for a better game.

I would define Adr1ft as a casual exploration game overall, with a mild bit of survival added to spice things up.

VR with this is amazing, but If you get motion sick easily, I don't recommend this. 6 degrees of movement in a zero grav environment destroys weak stomachs, and even makes tough ones feel a little off.

That said, it gets movement in space right, and it looks great. The graphics actually look great in the rift compared to alot of other games, the controls are solid and it's definitely fun if you don't mind taking your time.

Best played sitting in a comfy chair.

Nice graphics, but you need good tolerance to motion sickness if played in VR. Devs were nice enough to provide a key for Oculus Home with the purchase of Steam version. You will have to email them requesting for one and provide proof of Steam purchase. Very nice of them.

Don’t let it go ! Adr1ft is the closest spacewalk experience ever offered by a video game. Visually gorgeous with ultra-realistic space views. This first-person spacewalk adventure immerses you in a stunning feeling of isolation, weightlessness and urgency to survive in space. The lack of direction to follow the survivor pass and the repetitiveness in actions progressively raise a feeling of frustration through the EVA experience. But this is all what a real spacewalk is about. Steady carefulness, slow motion, repetitiveness in basic actions, thinking ahead, spatial awareness and mastering the frustration of the suit limitations & constraints are key skills to be mastered to perform a safe and efficient spacewalk, which requires patience dedicaction and determination. You’ll need all of these to make it through in Adr1ft !

The most beautiful boring game I've ever played.

The visuals are stunning, and I'm sure it's even more amazing with a VR headset. However, the gameplay is monotonous and painfully slow. I realize for the sake of realism, you're not supposed to be flying around with crazy speed, but the overall pace of the game is at best relaxed and at worst, a maddening crawl.

The game basically consists of traversing a damaged space station in microgravity, repairing various sections of the ship in order to get the return vehicle operational and get home. Meanwhile, I suppose you're supposed to piece together what happened to the ship and the rest of the crew (more on that later). You also deal with your EVA suit problems by constantly hunting down O2, which is pretty much everywhere. The physics are relatively accurate, so that's a plus. Only thing that irked me there is that somehow electrical shocks translate into kinetic energy and knock you off course if you touch an exposed wire...?

The game mechanics, while extremely repetitive, were just as visually appealing as the scenery. I was hoping that eventually your suit would be repaired to the point you no longer needed to scrounge for oxygen, but that aspect of the game didn't bother me as much as it did other players. What confused me is that entire section of the game was devoted to repairing the communications array, but even after it was repaired, the player character still didn't speak. What's the point of fixing communications if you aren't going to talk to mission control?

The story(?) is buried in audio tapes and uninteresting emails that don't appear to make sense if you don't find and read/listen to them all. Despite finding a lot of them, I couldn't seem to see how any of the dialogue shed any light on the situation at hand. Most of the dialogue was bland and I found it difficult to relate to any of the characters. I didn't understand the end scene's dialogue in the slightest, probably because the poorly communicated storyline didn't register. I finished the game feeling like I wasted time trying to find a deeper backstory or plot that wasn't there, and I really don't want to have to play this game again to find it, given the repetitive nature of the gameplay.

Overall, this is one of those games you'd love if you can manage the incredibly slow pace and are willing to deal with it to the point of collecting all the dialogue tapes and piecing together the story. I'm not a little kid who expects the game to play itself, but I have to draw a line somewhere. While I was initially excited by the incredible visuals and potential for a great story, I was let down when I couldn't find the latter.

My recommendation: don't play it unless you have a VR headset and it's on sale. The visuals are worth the $10 I paid when it was on a promotion, but IMHO, it's not worth much more than that, and would be better used as just a gimmick to introduce yourself or others to VR.

This game is absolutely gorgeous! I don\'t understand why it gets so many negative reviews beeing it is very well made. You can see that a lot of effort was put into it\'s development and it definatelly paid off. True, it\'s not action packed, there is no heroic hero not looking back at explosions nor epic car chases but those were not the goals here. This game provides amazing and immersive experience of beeing in space, while keeping you busy trying to survive catastrophic event on the orbital station you are at. There is also a background story which highlights lifes of crew members of the station and chain of events that lead to the accident. And while I have not played it with VR i can see this games positive rating would triple if only more people had an opportunity to try it, as this game was obviously made to enjoy it the most in VR. All in all this game is not for everyone, if you believe BF or COD are standards for gaming then just avoid ADRIFT but if you\'re like me and love to immerse yourself into beautifull virtual worlds, especially the ones in space then don\'t hesitate and try it out.

Played this on the new Oculus Rift. Was really excited to play this since I love space and the idea of surviving a disaster on a space station sounded interesting. But I cannot recommend this game. All you do is float from one spot to the other and click on things. There are no puzzles or real challenges. Oxygen is so prevalent, that it is never an issue. The only challenge to this game is knowing what you are supposed to do and where you are supposed to go. It boils down to being told some random thing is broken, you have to fix it for some reason, and you have to gallivant off to the other side of the space wreckage to get a part to fix it. Rinse and repeat. The direction indicator on your visor that lets you know where to go is a 2D circle with arrows on it. You are floating in 3D space. I found the 2D indicator on where to travel in 3D space to be almost useless. Don't tell me to turn left or right when it is off in another direction altogether. Give me the actual vector! After following the arrows, avoiding massive electrical arcs along the way, to only arrive full circle where I started, making no progress, to be a huge pain. I was often lost and didn't know where to go or why. And why should I care? I'm bored out of my mind. There are no real challenges besides navigation. The emails and voice logs are entirely uninteresting. The whole thing is extremely repetitive. Don't bother.

Oh, and how is it that every floating piece of space debris is powered and sparking? Is there a power plant every 2 feet?

A very immersive game that shouldnt be picked up if you are looking for gameplay. The graphics are exactly what you would expect from a sci-fi space game and they are stunning even without VR. The slow pace can be rough but it makes the game seem so much more beautiful and more immersive. I give it 6.5/10

I'm starting the review now, even after playing under an hour. As a foreword, I will be updating this review as I am further in the game and/or have beat the game. But first thing's first: This game dropped my jaw from the title menu. A true showcase for VR. This makes such wonderful use of the 3D imaging within the R1ft while having stunning and atmospheric graphics and sound design - all leading to some of the best immersion you can imagine.
In regard to comfort while playing this game in VR, it can be intense during particular cinematic when you are not necessarily in control of the movement you experience. In these moments, if you're becoming sick, you can hold B on the controller and all but just the very center of your view becomes obscured reducing almost all sense of movement. During regular gameplay I rarely felt uneasy. The only times are when you hold X to interact with a computer screen and the movement brings you very close to a screen very quickly which made me cringe once or twice.
Will update further down the road. The game is $10 on sale right now - go buy it immediately.

Adr1ft is an exploration game, where you play as the sole survivor of a disaster on a destroyed space station.
The main gameplay is based around piloting an EVA suit around exploring the station to complete four objectives to power up your escape shuttle, whilst managing your oxygen levels.

-Its very very pretty
-Controlling the EVA suit is fun
-Voice acting is great

-Repetitive missions
-Story is vague and told mostly through collectables.
-Is a exploration/walking sim in space if you dont like these types of games you won't like this.

Overall I had fun with Ad1ft but could not recommened it at full price.
I picked it up on sale (50% off) so hence happy to give it a thumbs up, If you can grab on a steam sale for under a Tenner then it would be a good way to kill a couple hours.

NOTE: Did not play on VR,

Great idea of the Game. I just bought it for 50%off.

Now, 5h later, i am finished. You have to complete 4 Missions, which consist of "find the MainFrame, get a disc, get back to the center, insert, and once again, and again, and again. Then you can leave. What's the fun?

You can fly free through the Environment. Thats cool, yeah. Until you reach end of air. Longer flies without grabbing (or trying to) every air-can you see are possible on your Way back to the escape shuttle.
But in this point my interest of looking around and finding some things was gone.

I wish a little more story and much more brain twisters.

I was quite dissapointed. I knew it was a rather "slow" game. But there is no excuse for that useless map or the fact that I get lost every 10 minutes. The game crashed on me already 3 times. In addition, in a game like this I would like to find out more about the characters. The game tries but does not succeed
