What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“With Balloon Chair Death Match we feel we have created a dynamic and unique VR experience and are excited to share our work-in-progress with the community. We want to gather player feedback to inform how we expand gameplay, features and content with the intention of evolving a fun and varied competitive experience that delights players and exceeds expectations.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate the title will remain in Early Access for approximately six to eight months.”

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

“Building upon the solid foundation of a spirited, exciting VR shooter, we would like to offer players a variety of exciting new weapons, pickups and maps. We would also like to introduce loads of fun game modes that can be played solo, or with friends as either co-op or head-to-head multiplayer.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Our Early Access build already includes polished single player challenges with leaderboards, single-player deathmatch against bots and head-to-head multiplayer deathmatch.

The core game allows players to fly through a high-rise city outmanoeuvring opponents and positioning to collect ammo and gas pickups. Currently there is a single type of weapon used to pop your opponent’s balloons from far or close, but more are being added soon!

The game also includes a tutorial to help new players get to grips with the control scheme.”

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

“We have priced the Early Access release at a point that we feel offers exceptional value to players looking to discover and help us shape a high-quality VR game. As we develop the game features and content we do expect to revisit pricing to reflect the additional value of the product.”

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

“We are looking forward to fully engaging with our active community, listening to their feedback and working with them to help us test and shape the game's future development. We’ve had a lot of fun making and playing the core experience and we cannot wait to share our work-in-progress with a wider community of players, as they battle to take up the premier positions on our leaderboards.”

Challenge Mode Update! - Version 0.1.300

The AI Bot Challenge Mode update is now live!

In this update we have the introduction of AI enemies into the existing challenge modes to form the new challenge modes. This is our first foray into having AI enemies in challenge modes and we'll be watching player feedback closely so make your voice heard!

We hope you enjoy this mid-month mini update as the BCDM team work hard to bring you a much larger update coming at the end of this month!

You can read the exact changes below!

----------------------------------------- NEW CHALLENGE MODE #3 & #4 --------------------------------
A far harder version of the existing challenge modes, these new challenges include infinitely re-spawning AI enemies who will come at you again and again!

Unlike deathmatch mode, when you die the challenge is immediately ended so ignoring them is not an option.

Once defeated, the AI enemy will respawn further down the map and after a 7 second delay, will begin hunting you anew.

However, skilled players who find the first two challenge modes too easy will be able to rack up a far higher score as each AI balloon popped earns you 15 points and each kill earns you 200 points!

------------------------------------------------------- OTHER -----------------------------------------------------
We have reduced the 30 second wait after each challenge mode down to a 10 second wait as we found it too long when you just wanted to try again.

[Early Look] Challenge Mode #3 and #4!

Happy new year to all and one!

As the BCDM team work tirelessly developing the next major content update aimed for release at the end of the month, we have a quick mini-update for you!

Coming early next week, Challenge Mode #3 and #4 are being introduced into Balloon Chair Death Match. They're higher-difficulty versions of the two existing challenge modes, but with re-spawning enemies who's sole purpose is to disrupt your attempt at a high score and shoot you out the sky!


Will you try to run past them taking a few pot-shots to slow them down, or perhaps you'll fight them head-on to rack up the points their death will provide!

Either way, look forward to next week when you'll be able to play the new challenges to your heart's content!

About This Game

Suit Up! Strap in! Take to the skies… in your Balloon Chair of Death!

Balloon Chair Death Match is a unique singleplayer and multiplayer VR game, featuring challenging, competitive aerial combat above a beautiful, immersive city environment.

Imagine yourself sitting in a desk-fan driven chair held up by several balloons. You navigate the airspace above a city using the joystick attached to one of the arm rests. Virtual Reality wizardry means you feel like you're right there, in that chair, bobbing along past the tips of skyscrapers, looking down at the tiny cars going about their business hundreds of feet below you. It all sounds rather lovely and serene until you add other people with similar chairs, large guns and wicked intentions.  

In the game you will find yourself pitted against several other Balloon Chair pilots, earn points for shooting out their balloons and for sending them plummeting to the ground. The more balloons you inflate the higher you go. To keep yourself going you'll need to fly around the city to collect gas and bullets, so you can teach the other pilots a thing or two. There's quite a lot of gleeful carnage and frivolous high speed impacts with the pavement. 

Oh, and don't play chicken with the trains on the high-rise monorail which runs round the city, you'll lose.
