What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“VR is still in its infancy, and there’s still a lot to learn about the way players interact with VR. By staging Mindshow in Early Access we can learn more about what players value and what they need. We are looking for an engaged community that is willing to test our assumptions and work through these challenges with us.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect to be in Early Access for at least the next 6 months.”

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

“Immediately, we want to build out our online infrastructure, allowing for the in-app sharing of shows back and forth between players. Creating shows is fun, but it’s even more fun when ideas bounce off each other.

At the same time, we are going to offer an experimental mode for tinkerers who want to explore interoperability between Mindshow and other creative products. As those integrations are successful, they will be migrated over to the main experience.

There are many more features and polish improvements in our backlog and we will look to the community to tell us what is most valuable.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Mindshow sandbox allows players to create VR native stories and export them to 2D. Starting from pre-made templates or a blank scene, players can use the expanding library of characters, props, and environments to record their performances.”

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

“The core Mindshow app + base assets will always be free to use.

Eventually, we plan to introduce premium characters, social skins and tools targeted at creators who want to take their shows to the next level.”

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

“We are actively engaging the community in weekly creative challenges. We have some idea of what makes a show in VR great, but not all the answers. The Mindshow platform is only as fun as the content users make with it, and the fun they have creating. We plan on learning together as we stress test the idea of remixable media.

Our community team is ready to engage on Steam and our Facebook Group. We can't wait to see how people play in Mindshow, and hear about what we can do to make the platform even more fun.”
