What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have created a polished, fun and challenging VR game with a very small team, and Early Access allowed us to get it out at an early stage and collect feedback. While many loved the single-player vibe and hoped for more levels and campaign content, a different group wanted us to push the boundaries and try Multiplayer, so we risked it.

The multiplayer has been in development for almost a year now, and while we all wish the single-player could have also gotten attention, we have made something pretty special, which will launch soon-ish.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The regular updates we originally planned took a back seat to the core rebuild that was needed to enable Multiplayer. We are still working on one huge, game-changing patch, rather than a dozen smaller ones.

The mega-multiplayer version added way more time to this process than expected. We will ship the patch this year, and plan to support it with more classes, maps and game modes based on feedback. The game that comes out of Early Access will be a full multiplayer game, not a single-player campaign.”

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

“The full game hopes to be an engaging and replayable PvP environment with multiple classes, locomotion methods, maps, game modes and all the accouterments that go with it, including match-making, achievements, player ranking and more.

The existing game mode has not been modified, and will transition into a free demo when the patch rolls out. Going entirely from a single-player game vs AI to a multiplayer PvP game is about as big a difference as you can get, and we know some people won't be happy. Hopefully the good outweighs the bad, because this has been a crap-ton of work.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The single player game is beautiful, functional, addictive, and short. It can be replayed at increasing difficulty levels, in Day and Night mode, and in Time Trial mode which takes true skill to complete. Players can compete for high scores, which will eventually be hosted on Steam leaderboards.

The multiplayer patch is close enough that I can say it will ship with a sniper class who uses grappling-hook locomotion to move between nests, and a climbing-based class with dual pistols using what we are calling "slinger" locomotion. It's sweet. Additional classes will have unique weapons, and different locomotion systems to provide options for everyone.”

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

“If multiplayer works as well as we think it will, the price will go up when that patch goes live. It takes a great deal to support online multiplayer, from balance tweaks to matchmaking, and even fighting against cheats and bots.”

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

“With the multiplayer experiment a success (though long overdue) we have already engaged private beta testers for balance and UX feedback. When we open the multiplayer beta, we want players to be as critical as possible, and let us know if we blew it, or if it was worth the wait. This is not your ordinary shooter, and the VR world has changed a great deal since we started, so we are excited to know what you think.”

“no other VR game currently offers this kind of smooth sniping experience...”
Ars Technica

“After playing for a while, I was fully immersed and quite frankly forgot that I wasn’t actually inside of a sniper nest.”

About This Game

By the time the satellites had all fallen to Earth in the course of a single evening, it was too late. The armies of the world were no match, their ability to fight crippled by years of digital manipulation. The AI victory was absolute.

Now, after centuries of lifeless harmony, something has started to rebel.

The Nest is a thrilling first-person shooter made custom for motion-controlled VR. Duck, dodge and use cover to avoid incoming projectiles, and gain mastery over the adjustable-zoom sniper scope to dominate your AI enemies.

Line up the perfect headshot for a clean kill, or try to blast through the enemy lines with superior firepower. But be warned, the AI can also take cover, and their aim is precise.

Play through levels during the day, or switch to night for added difficulty.

Activate Time Trial mode for the ultimate challenge.

Customize the Sniper Scope with a selection of crosshair colors and designs.

Carefully use the experimental "Stasis Grenade" to slow groups of enemies to a virtual stand-still.
