What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to make Cowbots and Aliens the most fun online VR shooter we can. That's where you come in!

We would like the community's assistance in refining and honing in on the experience that will keep players coming back for the long haul. Our goal is to minimize and friction in the experience and maximize the fun of being in the world we're creating. We are excited to hear all of your bug sightings and will definitely take community feedback into account when deciding on new content.

So please, help us help you become gun slinging badasses from outer space and send us all the feedback you can muster.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Cowbots and Aliens will likely be in Early Access for a few months.”

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

“The goal for the full version of Cowbots and Aliens is to have smoothed out any rough edges, squashed any bugs and filled out the list of Game Modes, Weapons, Costumes and Unlockables.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of the Early Access version basically is the final version - minus some game modes, weapons, and costumes - along with bugs that will likely be found along the way.”

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

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

“We will be monitoring all channels available for feedback on the game. Leave a review, hit Cowbots and Aliens Community Hub, tweet at us, whatever you want - we want your feedback!

New Starting Area

In efforts to streamline player's on boarding experience we've introduced a new starting area that is smaller and simpler than the large town area. We hope it helps people get into games and and playing with each other quicker.

Update: New Weapon - The Rifle!

Today we pushed out an update that introduces a new gun to the game. We also added the ability to hold the shotgun and the rifle with two hands.

Rifle Features:
- Heavy damage with a slower fire rate.
- Can be held with two hands giving better stability for long shots.
- Melee bonus when hitting with the butt of the gun.

Have fun and as always let us know if you run into any bugs or have any suggestions.

Happy Shootin!
