Free DLC, more gameplay, more languages and more fixes - PATCH 6 is here!



It’s been a while but here we are with a ton of new stuff - new and totally free content, new languages and fixes. Let’s get to it!

The biggest addition this time is more game. “Roboto Factory” is a free DLC that lets you get inside the famous Roboto Factory, where all the bots you've met on Speculo were created. You will discover its workings and see your old mechanical companions in a new light.

We’ve also added the support for both simplified and traditional Chinese - now not only you can enjoy the game with Chinese subtitles but also with Chinese text within the game world!

Additionally we’ve implemented some new fixes:
  • We’ve moved onto a newer version of the Unreal Engine. Thanks to that we’ve been able to further optimize the game and improve its performance in some locations;
  • With the new renderer the depth of field has been improved;
  • Buggy handles better and has improved physics;
  • Fixed the achievement “Get 6600 units of graphene” - now it should unlock properly;
  • Fixed the occasional issue with incorrect display of subtitles;
  • Added the option to turn off the vibration on gamepads;
  • The puzzle with guiding a robot at the beginning of the base game has been improved to deliver maximum satisfaction;
  • Added the option to reset your save files, so you can restart the level you’re currently in. In the main menu just press LCTRL+LSHIFT+F5 and listen for a sound indicating that the reset is done.

Enjoy!

AN UPDATE THIS WAY COMES!

Hello everyone!
We know it's been a while since the last patch. The devs from Carbon Studio are working on another big one containing fixes, more gameplay, and additional localization. This is still TBA however, although it should come out soon - we'll roll it out as soon as it's ready.

For now we have something somewhat unexpected for you - support for Linux.



In short, if you have a machine running Steam OS, you can enjoy ALICE.

We know that this is not what many of you are waiting for, but it's a start of a new roll-out of content.

Thank you for being with us!

Also, don't forget the extras you'll get with the game:
  • Original soundtrack from the game composed by Francois Jolin of Eon Sounds;
  • Digital artbook with 40 pages of graphics annotated by the developers;
  • Additional videos about the development of the game;
  • A set of wallpapers.

So, see you on Speculo! Just jump down the rabbit hole!

Get the goodies, get the languages, get the game!

Hello All!
We’re proud to announce the release date of Alice VR! Everyone will be able to visit the alien planet Speculo on Thursday, October 27th 2016 and find the truth behind the disappearance of its inhabitants.

BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!

As a huge thank you to everyone supporting our indie efforts, we have some really cool additional content!

With the purchase of Alice VR you’ll receive:

  • Original soundtrack from the game, composed by Francois Jolin of Eon Sounds, in both MP3 and FLAC formats for all your music-listening needs;
  • Stylish digital artbook with 40 pages of concept graphics, rough sketches, designs, and 3D models - all annotated by the developers;
  • Additional videos about the development and the challenges that come with designing a game for VR - all in 1080p;
  • A set of exclusive wallpapers selected by the developers to showcase the atmosphere and characters of Alice VR;

Nifty, huh?

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!

If you happen to be a linguistic enthusiast, or just like playing games in your mother tongue, we have some more cool news for you! Alice VR from day one will be available in 6 languages: English, Polish, German, French, Spanish, and Russian with voices recorded in English and Polish.
We’d love to localize Alice VR into all 6909 languages that us humans speak on this rock, but it wouldn’t be realistic. On Speculo they only use 6, you know. Or thereabouts.

So hey! Alice VR will be available October 27th 2016 on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive (motion controllers supported!), OSVR, and (in case you’re still waiting for your headset) on regular PC monitors.

Get the goodies, get the languages, get the game!

About This Game

Alice VR is a story-driven exploration game rich with puzzles and designed to be a singular VR adventure. Game is inspired by the famous Lewis Carroll's novel "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", taking its characters and themes to a new science-fiction setting. Enjoy beautiful graphics, atmospheric, electronic soundtrack and lose yourself in the world of Alice VR.

An unexpected malfunction forces your ship’s AI to wake you from the cryo sleep. You have to make an emergency landing on the nearby planet. Your goal there is simple: find enough fuel to escape. This straightforward task gets complicated when you realize that all of the planet’s citizens had disappeared in mysterious circumstances.

Alice VR is a fresh take on the classic adventures of Alice in Wonderland. During your playthrough you'll meet familiar characters such as Cheshire Cat or Mad Hatter, but the unique sci-fi setting will make every encounter a big surprise.

Will you discover the planet's secret? Are you ready to face the challenges ahead? Follow the white rabbit into the unknown - the future is in your hands.

REVIEWS


Hardcore Gamer
The planet is filled with trippy touches and striking imagery. There’s an adorable robotic companion who pops up from time to time to offer cryptic advice, and tons of interesting environmental details. (...) People who want to explore a striking new land in a relaxing fashion will be in heaven here. Adding to this are some interesting puzzles. An early one that involved rearranging pieces of a coil to reactivate the ships engine was simple and clever. Traversal puzzles that goof around with gravity are a delight to solve as they force a level of three dimensional thinking that is satisfying to solve.

VR Focus
The world that Carbon Studio has created is a fantastic mix of sci-fi architecture and bizarre dreamlike scenarios. The books inspiration can be seen everywhere, from the mechanical cat that occasionally appears to the out and out absurdly trippy experiences, sharks flying through the sky, menacing black and white forests, tunnels that twist and turn as your viewpoint changes, it’s a visual assault on the senses. Add to that the eerie audio score, and you have quite an engaging mixture.

God is a Geek
With a five hour playthrough it’s one of the longer story-based VR titles, and with monitor support included, you can always experience the wacky world of Alice VR minus the VR.
