What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

"Ship it" - our motto :-)

Integral part of our development process is releasing often, taking into account community feedback.

By releasing into Early Access, we're able to develop this game for and with the community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Till December 2017.”

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

“Depends on the feedback from the community, but here are the things we have in mind:

* Multiplayer
* Make as many elements as possible on the boat interactive
* More locations to sail in
* Better AI
* Implementation of racing rules
* Changing weather”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We're are getting very close to 1.0 release ( out of EA ).

We've achieved most of our goals for Early Access. The main thing we want to get done before 1.0 is polish user interface.”

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

“We plan to increase the price as the game becomes more polished.”

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

“We will be looking for your input on forum, reddit and twitter.

Also feel free to reach to us over the e-mail.”

Reviews

“My kids are incredibly interested in the whole sailing thing so I put the Vive on my 8 yr old and loaded up VR Regatta to teach her some of the basics (tiller use, mainsail adjustment, tacking, sail luffing). We went out on the water this morning and she was able to immediately recognize when my sail was luffing because of the distinctive sound it made. She also got the hang of the tiller pretty quickly.”
