What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As we ramped up production of this first season of FOO, we realized that we still have a lot of work left to do, and would appreciate feedback from the community as that continues.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until the show is ready for mainstream audiences and is feature complete (clients for Oculus and Steam, plus an integrated 2D client for non-VR users).”

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

“The full version will feature regular episodes of The FOO Show, as well as some other surprises we have planned.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Everything works, but we're missing key components (music, credits, some cues, etc).”

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

“We don't intend to change the price during early access.”

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

“We're going to collect feedback on new features and techniques that we try, as we explore the frontier of TV-like content in VR.”

Version 1.01 Released!

We just released a patch with bug fixes and user interface enhancements for The FOO Show. Thanks to users who reported them, and if you have issues or questions, please post in the message boards if you have any other issues or suggestions. Issues fixed include:

  • Fixed issue that prevented some users unable to pick up objects in the Firewatch watch tower
  • Added rotation cues that tell people with 180 degree Oculus setups to use the thumbsticks to rotate
  • Changed thumbstick rotation from 90 degrees to 45 degrees and adjusted sensitivity to avoid unintentional turning
  • Controllers now hide when you pick up an object
  • Fixed lighting in the Firewatch tower

We're still tracking down the audio bug that results in hitchy or skipping playback. If you get it, restarting the application will fix the problem. If you get this bug, we'd love your log file! We need the output_log.txt file from the foo_data folder. If you'd email it to, it would help us immensely.

Next, we're going to update the 2D client with these changes, so we can get it out ASAP.

“crude and clumsy at times, but the potential of Smith’s show is tremendous”

“ creates a real sense of actually being there.”

“Since The FOO Show is in English, many of our readers will probably not be interested”
