Early Access Game

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

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to ensure that we get community feedback about our game in regards to content, interaction, in-game feedback, and overall immersion. Because of that, we decided to release it under Early Access initially. This allows us to get proper feedback about the gameplay and interactions that really can't be successfully gained without letting the users play the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to fully release the game in 2017, with new content coming out as we complete it during Early Access.”

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

“This release of the game is to get the community involved in what we are doing and to share our ideas thus far. We hope to continually expand on our existing world of puzzle rooms, integrating the community's feedback where possible and applicable. Check on our announcements board for our upcoming roadmap for more information about what we hope to achieve and what we've already created in our Early Access game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, the game allows for users to access our first build, learn about interactions in the initial apartment, and then have the opportunity to complete puzzle rooms inside the mansion. As we move forward, we hope to release new puzzle rooms at defined intervals along with fixes and additional game mechanics.”

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

“Yes. As we define additional content for the game, we will increase the price nominally to cover costs of the new content. Thus, anyone purchasing early on will be able to get our full content for less than our final release price.”

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

“As we have stated, we are continually looking for community feedback about the game. Please post to our forum or to our Steam discussion board with any feedback, comments, or other info.”

March Update

Greetings Gamers!

Wow, time has just been flying by! The new abilities and mechanics of the VRTK 3.1 and SteamVR 1.2.1 packages have been astounding.

Unfortunately, it has required us to start back at the beginning of our creation in regards to interactable objects. Our devs have been working tirelessly to get the new codebase integrated and working with the precision and immersion that we need in the game.

Because of this, we've had to rework a lot of our add-on scripts that were dependent on the older version of VRTK, so it's pushed us a little further back on our next release than we would have liked.

Since that was the bad news, here is the good news- while we are working on the base code of the game to make it better all around, our level designers and puzzle creators are hard at work to continue forward with additional rooms. This means that our next release may include more than just a single room for all you puzzle junkies.

More info as we get closer to release. Thank you all for your patience as we work through these new and uncharted waters!

-The Unwelcomed Team

February Update

Greetings Gamers!

Development slowed a bit over the holiays of the new year, but we're back on top of things and working hard to get our next release avaialble.

Some of the major updates in our next release include updates to the VRTK package, the SteamVR package, and updating to a new version of unity to support all the fun new abilities.

Because of these updates, there won't be a lot of changes that can really be seen by the players, but it provides a much better framework for us moving forward and provides support for things we couldn't in the past.

In our next major release, we hope to have a 4th room available, some new game mechanics, as well as support for new hardware such as the Oculus Rift.


We'll post more info as we get closer to release.

About This Game

You've spent the day lounging about your apartment, contemplating what else to watch on TV. As you gaze around the room, you remember that there was an official looking letter that came in the mail - perhaps you should open it and see what it is...

The Unwelcomed is an escape the room (EtR) type game created for VR and was inspired by such classics as Crimson Room. The Unwelcomed starts by inviting you to come to your late uncle's mansion to claim it as your own. Once you arrive, however, it's going to be hard to leave...

The game supports both HTC Vive and Keyboard and Mouse!

What you need to know about this release:

For Keyboard and Mouse users, the key mapping options do not currently work. Keyboard binds are as follows:


E – Use/Interact: Any object that can open, such as doors, drawers, or lids are openable by targeting them with the crosshairs and pressing this button. Additionally, some objects require another object to work, such as grabbing the keys from the hanger and 'using' them while in contact with the door handle in the apartment.

Right Click – Pick Up Object: Any object that can be picked up, target with the crosshairs and hold the right click button to grab it.

Mouse Wheel +/- While holding an object, scroll the mouse wheel to move it closer or further away from the player.

Alt – Rotate object with mouse: While holding an object, hold ALT and move the mouse to rotate the object in space in front of you in order to inspect it

F – Flashlight Toggle: Once you have picked up a flashlight in a room, it will be available to you. You can turn it on/off by pressing this key.

L.Shift - Crouch Toggle: You can crouch to reach lower spaces by pressing and holding Left Shift.
