What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Development of Volo Airsport is on a permanent hiatus

We thank you wholeheartedly for your support, encouragement, and feedback over the course of Volo's development. We’ve built a game that we’re still quite proud of, and we couldn’t have done any of it without you. We also hope to see you again in our next journey - whatever that might be.

-------------------------

The game doesn't need to be finished for it to be enjoyable, and there is no such thing as spoiling the surprises for later. With each update you'll have something new to try, making the game feel fresh.

Community feedback is helping to refine the game. We come up with ideas, try them, and see if they stick. You tell us where the rough edges are, and whether you feel a feature fits with your idea of the game. We might be the authors of this book, but we do want to make sure our words make sense to you.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

Development of Volo Airsport is on a permanent hiatus

There are some big experimental features that we've yet to complete. As long as there is no clarity on if, when and how those features will end up in Volo, the game will remain in Early Access.

  • A custom terrain engine
  • Online multiplayer
  • User created content / Mods

Once we've worked our way through these things the big picture will be clearer, and we can move beyond early access.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

Development of Volo Airsport is on a permanent hiatus

We have a rough idea on where we want to go with the game, but what the final game will look like, we simply don't know yet!

We will keep going as long as:

  • we feel there's still interesting ground to cover
  • people are actually playing the game

Here's a list of some things we're considering to add:

  • Local and Online Multiplayer (we think Volo Airsport is most fun when played with other people)
  • Parachutes and other ways to glide and fly
  • Walking, jumping from exit points
  • Player-designed Skydiving Styles
  • Customizable Gear Design (Aerodynamics and Looks)
  • Player-Created Events and Challenges
  • Replay Editor
  • Lively & Dynamic Environments
  • Mod Support (Levels, Modes)

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

Development of Volo Airsport is on a permanent hiatus

Volo already has a lot to play around with:

  • A single, finely tuned wingsuit to fly with
  • A huge landscape inspired by the Swiss Alps, with lots of lines to fly
  • Time Trials that push your skills to the limit
  • Multiple camera perspectives (including first-person view)
  • Very configurable graphics and input settings
  • VR Support (Oculus Rift & HTC Vive)

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

The price will increase as the game grows. If you want to get it cheap, get it now!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

Development of Volo Airsport is on a permanent hiatus

We invite you to discuss the game on our forums http://forum.volo-airsport.com/. We take all feedback seriously, but we won't implement a feature just because you ask for it. We want to make sure all features fit together into one solid gameplay experience.

Also, we look forward to the first bits of user-created content showing up! We're really curious to see the other directions people could take it in with modding support.”

Goodbye, Volo

Hello Pilots,

For the past six years, Volo Airsport has been our lives. We’ve thought about it long into the night when we should’ve been sleeping, worked on it weekends and holidays… We love this game, and still find ourselves amazed by the number of players who have come to love it as well.

When we released Volo Airsport on Steam Early Access in late 2014, we intended for its development to be a journey - and it certainly has been. We added features that allowed you to choose the way you fly, whether in our signature wingsuit, or the new, customizable parachute. We improved the game’s graphics and upgraded the engine several times over, adding day/night cycles, a weather system, and more. We started a semi-weekly show to catalogue improvements made, future plans, and discuss our approach to game development. And all the while, we were able to rely on you - our community - to guide and support us. Whether you ‘liked’ one of our videos, covered the game, or simply took the time to play it, we can’t thank you enough for your support of Volo Airsport, and our team.

As we’ve continued to try bringing Volo Airsport to a point of completion, we’ve begun to hit one roadblock after another. Right now, we’re a team of three, and we simply can’t continue to work on this project we love so much with the revenue it currently generates. We’ve run out of money, and with it, the time we hoped we might have to bring this project to a fitting conclusion.

As of today, development of Volo Airsport is on a permanent hiatus. Today’s new branch containing the seeds of the next steps we hoped to take with the game is the last addition Volo Airsport will see.

Goodbye, Pilots.

About This Game

Development of Volo Airsport is on a permanent hiatus


We thank you wholeheartedly for your support, encouragement, and feedback over the course of Volo's development. We’ve built a game that we’re still quite proud of, and we couldn’t have done any of it without you. We also hope to see you again in our next journey - whatever that might be.

------------------------

Take to the skies and fly past mountains in a wingsuit. Try to hug the cliffs at over 250 km/h or cruise at high altitudes and admire the scenery.

Your body and gear are fully physically simulated. You fly by controlling your character's muscles directly, which changes your pose, which interacts with the air around you. You can see, hear, and feel every gust of wind as you pass it.

The current version already has a lot to play around with:
  • A single, finely tuned wingsuit to fly with
  • Customizable parachutes
  • A huge landscape inspired by the Swiss and French Alps, with lots of lines to try
  • Dynamic time and weather that is also completely customizable
  • Multiple camera perspectives (including first-person view)
  • Highly configurable graphics and input settings
  • Time Trials that push your skills to the limit

Gamepad or Joystick recommended!
