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.”

v0.3.2 - OUT NOW! New Map, New Missions, Improved Controls!


---------------------------------------- New Campaign Map ----------------------------------------

City of light and colour!
A whole new campaign map with new missions and higher difficulty!

> Neotopia comes with three new missions (more being added later!)

> Neotopia maps are higher difficulty than the existing Floatonia City maps

> The third map introduces the shotgun (The Red Devil) as the first campaign alternative weapon!

> Multiplayer and achievements specifically for Neotopia will be introduced in later updates

---------------------------------------- Control Improvements ----------------------------------------

We've made a number of improvements to the controls so that your balloon flying experience is that much smoother!

> Auto-grip in the joystick is now active by default so new players aren't forced to keep it gripped at all times. If you preferred the old control scheme, you can change it back from the options menu

> To inflate balloons, you now only need to press the inflate button once rather than hold it down for two seconds. You can still hold it down to inflate one balloon after another, or you can tap it each time a balloon is inflated

----------------------------------------------------- Balance -----------------------------------------------------

The Shotgun felt more like a permanent weapon than a short-term super-powered gun. So we've balanced things out to reduce the amount of time player spend with it, but increase how powerful it is overall.

> The Shotgun's range, number of bullets fired and spread have all been increased

> The Shotgun now only holds a maximum of 20 shells (down from 30)

> The Shotgun now only receives 10 shells from the big pickup

> The Shotgun now only receives 6 shells from the little pickup

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.
