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.”

December Update

Greetings Gamers!


Happy Holidays! We hope you've all found some great deals on the various steam sales that dot the landscape for the last few months of the year. It's our favorite time to grab some great titles and spend time with our friends and families.

Development continues on polishing and re-inventing some of our systems to ensure smooth and enjoyable gameplay experience. We're re-tooling a bit for Oculus support to help with specific issues on the platform as well as adding some additional love to the non-VR edition to help make the game much more enjoyable for all players.

We would like to thank the community for being supporting and patient as we continue to work on this game as we are a very small, very new group of developers and as we delve deeper into the game development process we are learning how much we really don't know.

Happy Holidays from everyone here at The Unwelcomed.

October Update

Greetings Gamers!

Development slowed a bit during the summer due to our devs wanting to get out of their dark caves and go do things in the sunlight. Now that we've managed to corral them back into their pits of despair, we are making forward progress again.

Thank you all who have submitted information from our betas, we look forward to implementing many of the suggestions provided. For those who have been waiting for our next major release, we don't have a specific timeframe, we do hope to have something out by the end of the year at the latest.

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...

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.
