What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're out to build the best VR fantasy action game out there. We have a plan set out, and want to engage the players to hear what mechanics are most fun! When you're working with a close-knit community, the magic happens.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until first months of 2017”

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

“The full game will feature procedurally generated levels, each with a few randomized quests along the way. There will be a few unlockable player classes, all with drastically different skillsets. Players will gain upgrades, sidegrades and skins for classes and their equipment as mission rewards. Along the game, players will also collect "memories" - interactive dioramas that will slowly unravel the story of the world of Trickster and lead up to final conclusion.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game includes two game modes - Adventure Mode, with procedurally generated levels and quests to complete - and Wave Attack, to practice your Orc handling skills. Orcs won't give you an easy time. There are about 8 different enemies, each with individual skillset. The sky arena changes randomly every round so you'll have to move around to have the advantage.”

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

“Finished game will have a higher price. Price will increase along the development process with big, game changing updates.”

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

“Update early, update often. Get feedback on experimental features as soon as they're ready to roll out. Expand things that shine the most. Don't waste time on stuff nobody uses. That's how we do things around here.”

Happy hunting!

Update 16: The Wolf



This week's update bring back the mighty Howler Bow and Scroll of Force. The pushback power of both of these items is enough to make your enemies vanish over the horizon. If you previously unlocked these items you can now instantly proceed to play our new favorite game - "Who can throw an Orc over that bridge?"





Dual crossbows received some well-required balance pass. Their reload time is now 1.2 seconds (up from 0) and time between shots is 0.25 seconds (up from 0.2 seconds).

To make you even more convinced bows are also worth your time, we increased their damage, arrow flight speed, range and arrow physical force by 25%

There is also a few important bugfixes coming in this update. Most notably - you'll no longer switch back to starter weapons when joining a coop game.
