Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I would like to work on the game while getting continual feedback from players in order to make it the best game it can possibly be. I am also a lone developer without any funds and getting this game onto the market might finally convince my girlfriend that I'm not wasting my time here!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until the game has reached it's full potential or when the unholy spacial powers of the Universe have deemed it Done™”

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

“See the official roadmap for more info, but in general:
  • More modes!
  • More levels!
  • More enemies!
  • More guns!
  • More lists of features!
  • More features that go into said lists of features!
  • More feature-like things that YOU want in THIS game!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The first Early Access version has a completed gameplay mode and the first level of the game. It's good, but it needs to be fleshed out and developed further and I will be adding the other gameplay modes to make it a much more interesting game.”

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

“The price will start out a little lower for the early adopter players and then it will be raised gradually with each Very Significantly Important Update(tm) and then when aforementioned spacey unholy powers deem the game Done™, then the price will go up a few notches. So get in early, invest now and save Future Money™!”

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

“I want to hear your ideas and what More-like things you want in the game, and I am ALL ears but I simply refuse to listen to people in their underwear. So please dress nicely when typing your requested features and your chances increase exponentially with how stylish you've made yourself!”

September 28

WW v0.3 RELEASED! Somewhat Significantly Important Update #3 is available now!

Somewhat Significantly Important Update(tm) #3!

EDIT: version is now online with the fix for some show-stopping bugs!

Fight for your survival against an evil garbage bot that wants to squish you into a flat piece of human flesh! This all-new game mode is still under construction and I am currently tweaking the gameplay here for maximal fun.

New main menu room for the game's startup, select your level and get shooting in this awesome gigantic elevator taking you to the different floors.

New SLOW MOTION MODE! Press the Touch pad button (Vive) / joystick down-press (Oculus) to enable slow motion mode! Shoot the bonus pickups if you run out! Adds a lot to the gameplay, and gives you strategic advantages.

- the local scores will unfortunately have to be reset because of the new level and the new high score system. Super super sorry about this, but it was the only way to get it working!

Localization for Japanese, Korean, Russian and French added!

Version 0.194 has been pushed and comes with some tasty localization for Japanese, Korean, Russian and French!

Woeful Woebots is now available in arcades in Korea and France, and needed to be tweaked for that along with the language updates.

Bug-fixing and keeping the project up to date with current VR tech has taken much longer than expected, but I am finally back to working on the second level and should hopefully have a decent prototype out soon.

“I never thought I'd see so many robots die at once, but now my life is complete!”
4096 – Some Random Guy

“Woeful Woebots will certainly appeal to those of you who love action-packed first-person shooter and intense arcade action where you can lay out destruction all over the place.”
5/5 –

About This Game

Woeful Woebots is an action-packed arcade shooter made from the ground up for VR!
As the founder of the Woebotics Corporation you find yourself bewildered as your very own robot creations suddenly turn against you. Your awful programming skills somehow let their artificial intelligence run amok and has given them free will. And these guys won't be serving you your afternoon tea with that stuff running their CPU-cores, that's for sure. Maybe they'll serve you some hot lead instead! As their master-creator you have to destroy every single one of them before they do something strikingly similar to you. Grab your guns from your super high-tech hips and blast your way through their filthy electronic meat!

  • Shoot evil robots with tactically-minded AI that die when you kill them to death!

  • Move somewhat freely around the level by shooting carefully placed target points!
    Use it to your strategical advantage and surprise your enemies.

  • No motion sickness (almost*) semi-guaranteed in a super-non legally binding way!
    I get queezy by most fps style VR movement and I will never have that stuff in my game!

  • Fight with your friends over who can climb to the top of the Steam Leaderboards or the amazingly innovative local high score list!

  • Absolutely no multiplayer at all! Be completely free from the pressures of online fighting that could RUIN your FRIENDSHIPS with REAL people!
    (yes that's a unique feature!)

* does not apply if you are playing this game on a boat in stormy weather or in a car flying off a cliff or if played on top of a speeding truck while fighting off oncoming traffic
