What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

The journey began in 2014 when ZeroTransform was founded. Vanguard V was nothing more than a single level prototype featuring a girl and her A.I. companion. As VR started grow, so did our desire to create a studio that could dedicate its efforts to the platform. We released a couple titles as we began laying down the foundation for ZeroTransform. Proton Pulse and Pulsar Arena hit the marketplace while we continued to fine tune our process and grow as a studio. The goal was to reach a point where we could develop Vanguard V to its full potential, a bar that was higher than our abilities in the beginning.

Vanguard V is now ready for our full attention. We have the team, we have the tools, now we just need to execute. We can do this with your help.
  • Try out the levels as they’re developed.
  • Get a 360 view of the studio as we discuss our development process in the Dev Corner section.
  • Participate in community surveys and help shape the title with your input.

Join us on our journey to make Vanguard V a reality and be part of VR history.

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until completion. We are targeting Spring of 2018 for the final release.”

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

“The Early Access version features level commentary from the devs, a Dev corner section featuring 360 video that showcases a behind-the-scenes look into development, and other extras (soundtrack, art). As the player, you become part of the game's growth and can witness the evolution of game design first hand.

The full version will focus on the title and less on the development process.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Fully playable version of level 1 and 2, dev corner, and extra features all function.”

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

“The price will gradually increase as more content is made available. The full title price is estimated at a price point of $29.99.

Extra features will be added over time so make sure to grab it early so you don't miss out on any of the goodies. Examples include artwork, music, and other neat things.”

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

“The community will get a behind the scenes look at the game development process through the Dev Corner section of the title. It features 360 video inside the studio discussing things we are tackling during development.

We will also be engaged through surveys to get feedback from the community on key aspects of the title. They will help shape the title while we prepare it for launch.”

ZeroTransform has moved! / Strange text / Coming to Apple!

First, I want to apologize for the long silence. Our studio just moved and we're still setting things up.

Our new location is located in the heart of Oregon. Like our previous location, the studio resides in a house instead of an office space. We call this VR Dev House 2.0.

We'll post pictures once things are operational again.

Also, you may have noticed some odd text at the bottom of the game. This is due to dropbox changing their public folder policy. We are making an update to address the issue.

Lastly, Vanguard V will be available on Mac OS soon. The new OS now supports Steam VR and external video cards via thunderbolt. Expect an update in the near future.

New Playable Level Released!

Happy to announce that the first boss fight has been released for Steam and Oculus. The update should automatically be applied next time you login to Steam or Oculus Home.

This is a big deal because this is the first time that Vanguard V has a fully sequential level option. If you beat level 1, it will take you to the boss fight, then level 2.

Level 2 also features the beginnings of our weapons upgrade system. The parasites have a chance to drop items for collecting. There is the small item, large item, and shield recovery item. The shield recovery is the only object that is hooked up right now but we thought you would like to see the progress.

We've also updated how the Dev Corner works. It now streams from a video source online. This allows us to make more updates without having to wait for new builds to be released.

This update also features some polish in Level 1 and Level 2. Can you spot the differences?

Lastly, we've updated our cheat system to enable a variety of neat features. Check out the dev corner video for more information.
