What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access gives you a chance to check out the full version of the new Bosch VR application in our test release. We will be making changes and bug fixes based on user feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Estimate about 2mos.”

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

“We will make improvements & bug fixes depending on user feedback and testing. It is designed to work best for standing in room space to walk around the painting, but can also be used seated in a smaller space.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“It is a fully functional version of the application. Though there may be some minor bugs.”

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

“This is uncertain.”

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

“We are looking for user feedback for this new type of VR experience to eliminate bugs and make the experience better all around. You can post your suggestions and reviews right here.
